If you must create an event flyer for The Mews and you aren’t quite sure what you want or how it should look, the template below might help.
This template was created in Microsoft Word and can be changed or adapted to fit your needs. It has been created at the correct size for The Mews — 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches long.
If the text in the template is spaced strangely or runs to a second page when you open the template, check your page margins. Under File, go to Page Setup and make sure your left and top margins are 0.5 inches.
If you use one of this template to create your event flyer, you can change the type style and size, the spacing, location of information and artwork or borders used. The template is designed to give you an idea of where to put your information and how it will look there.
Add your event artwork, or your local group’s arms, or whatever artwork fits the flyer. If you have problems changing the example artwork in the template to the artwork you wish to use, contact the chronicler at Chronicler@calontir.org or (402) 660-8931.
Don’t want to use one of this template? No problem. You can continue to create and submit unique flyers for your events. Just remember your size restrictions and make sure you include all the information necessary to make your flyer official. See the Mews Flyer Design Guidelines elsewhere on this website for details.
Don’t use Microsoft Word? Most open-source programs will open Word documents and allow you to save your finished flyer as a Microsoft-compatible file. If not, contact the Chronicler. She can send you a template saved in Open Office.
