Print Booklets

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. My firm decided to publish a brochure describing our accounting and consulting specialties for new and prospective clients. To save money I volunteered to prepare it in Word. But when I tried to format it, I realized I might have spoken too soon. Do you have any advice?

A. If you had asked me that question before Word 2002 was introduced, I would have suggested you seek out a professional printer. But now Word has features that make it simple.

In the File menu click on Page Setup and the Margins tab. Go to the Multiple pages drop-down list and click on Book fold (see screenshot).

You’ll have to adjust the margins to fit your needs. When finished, click on OK and the document automatically will be formatted.

When you’re ready to print, click on File , Print and opt to print two-sided. If you don’t have a duplex printer, enter a check next to Manual duplex and feed each page through the printer twice (see screenshot).
