How to make a brochure in Google Docs

From cloud to printer to client

Google Docs is one of the easiest and most accessible online document editors. The cloud-based architecture allows him to create documents on the go with his phone, and finish them at home on his top-of-the-line Chromebook. But because the heart of Google Docs is online, it’s easy to forget that the documents correspond to traditional document design. If you want to dig into the settings, you can create something like a traditional tri-fold brochure.


Create a brochure using Google Docs

Google Docs offers a variety of templates, including two for brochures. These brochures are double-sided pages with text and images. They are not the marketing triptychs most of us imagine when we think of brochures. To create a classic tri-fold brochure, you have to do the work yourself.

First, change the document orientation from the default portrait to landscape.

  1. click File From the ribbon menu at the top of the window.
    01-File Menu-800

  2. From the drop-down menu, page settings.

  3. under orientation In the page settings menu, scenery.

  4. [ページ設定]On the right side of the menu, set all margins to 0 inches.

  5. click have understood.

Setting the margin to 0 is the first step in the process. The next step is to insert the table. If you insert a 3-column table into a document with 1 inch margins, the crease is not the right place to divide the brochure into 3 parts.

Here’s how I created the table:

  1. click put in from the ribbon menu

  2. From the drop-down menu, table, From the pop-out menu, click the third box from the left in the top row to create a 3×1 table.

The three columns in the table give a visual representation of what the brochure will look like. It also facilitates final text and image organization.

The last thing to do before adding text and images to your brochure is to give your columns a breather. To do this, adjust the table properties.

  1. Right-click anywhere on the newly created table.
  2. From the context menu that pops up, table properties.

  3. This will create a new menu on the right side of your alignment drop down menu.

  4. Adjust the cell padding to 0.125 inches.

  5. to close the table properties menu. X It’s in the upper right corner of the menu.

This little padding keeps the brochure elements away from the edge of the page and away from where the folds are.

Now all you have to do is insert the image and text. I won’t go into design principles, but I will plan how I will organize the information so that everything will be in its proper place after the brochure is folded.
