Decide on Size, Content, and Images to Use First
The first considerations in deciding how to create a free brochure involve its rudimentary design features. That is to say what size do you want it to be first of all? The most popular options tend to be 5.5" x 8.5", 8.5" x 11", 8.5" x 14", 11" x 17", or 11" x 25.375. Next you have the fold considerations to contend with; such as tri-fold, half-fold, Z-fold, or the type that has pockets in it to hold additional information like business cards and such.
While we’re discussing how much room you will need for your brochure, it may be worth your while (especially if you’re in a time crunch or have only a little information that needs to be on it) to consider a flyer instead of a brochure. They can be quick, easy, and effective solutions in some advertising or information-generating cases. Read about The Best Free Flyer Templates to get all the information you need on that.
Now then, back to your brochure making endeavors. Choosing the eye-grabbing photos and images you’re going to want to include on your brochure, prior to the creation process, is a good idea. Having a general idea on the content meaning the text and the bold headings when you’re marketing the products or services of a business, will make it easier when you get to the design stage.
