Microsoft Word Newspaper Template Features
This great template offers TONS of colors, and clearly has a style that looks professional. If you want a professional newspaper template, or are interested in a free professional Microsoft Word newspaper template, this is the template for you.
It has multiple sections to it, so you can put in your top stories and top headlines all on the front page. There are places to add pictures, which can be inserted in either black and white or color. Full color pictures will make your Microsoft Word newspaper template come to life, and look like a professional newspaper. Black and white images will make your page look more like an interior page of a newspaper, and may be the choice you want if you’re going to print a lot of these yourself.
This template is also longer than your standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The long orientation makes this look and feel much more like a real paper, and this Microsoft Word newspaper template will allow you to put your main content “above the fold”. That means, when the paper is folded in half and put on display like real newspapers, the top news story on the front page that is literally “above the fold” will be visible. That’s the heading you want to use to grab people’s attention and help sell newspapers.
This paper even has areas for weather or sports updates at the bottom, advertisements at the top, and will let others know you are serious about having a nice, professional newspaper.
