MS Publisher Templates
Prefer to use Publisher? You have five unique options, as well. The Brown Stars Band Flyer is a simple yet eye-catching template in a brown color scheme, which you can easily change. In Publisher 2003 or 2007, go to the Format menu and select Color Schemes to select a different set of colors in the Color Scheme task pane. In Publisher 2010, go to the Page Design tab and choose an option in the Schemes group. There are multiple text boxes on this template as well, so that you can enter as much information as you'd like.
The Green Boxes template is another option with a specific color scheme that you can customize, if desired. The green boxes on this page each feature a rock band-related image, such as a drummer, a singer, a guitarist and a group of excited fans. You can use these clipart images or replace them with graphics of your own band. To do so, right-click an image, select Change Picture and insert the image file you want to use. There is a text box for your band name and another one for other information.
The Spiked Egg band flyer template might fill the bill if you are seeking something a bit more unconventional and striking. A red and black gradient-filled WordArt object runs vertically down the right side of the flyer. In Publisher 2003 or 2007, change the text to your band name by clicking on the WordArt to bring up the WordArt toolbar. Click on Edit Text, type the text you want and click OK. In Publisher 2010, click on the object and go to the Format tab under WordArt Tools. Click on Edit Text, type the text you want and click OK. There is a text box on the lower left side for more information, as well.
The Starburst Band Flyer features a gradient gray page background and a gradient blue and white starburst behind the sillhouettes of a guitarist, a vocalist and a sax player. If you wish to change the background color or pattern, go to the Format menu in Publisher 2003 or 2007 and select Background. In Publisher 2010, go to the Page Design tab and click Background in the Page Background group. Select the option you want, or choose No Background to remove it. There are two WordArt objects at the top of the page: one for your band name and one for the name of your current tour. Follow the steps in the previous paragraph to change the text. There is a sample promoter logo that you can replace by right-clicking and selecting Change Picture. At the bottom of the page is a text box into which you can type important details.
The final option is the Transparent Guitar Band Flyer, which sports a washed-out image of an electric guitar behind transparent bands in differing shades of green and gray. There are text boxes for your band's name, the tour name and date, the location and any other information that you want to get the word out about.
Choose the template that best fits your band's personality and style, or download them all and play with them to come up with a handful of truly one of a kind flyers.
