What Are Brochure Templates?
Brochure templates can come in almost any size – including standard trifold designs, simple booklets, card-style or single page elements. A solid template is that it creates a guideline for the design.
A design template will likely have a visual theme – colors, fonts and even icons or imagery – and allow for customization. Most designers download a brochure template that matches the size and project type – such as a standard 8.5 inch by 11 inch trifold – for a certain type of software. (Many brochure templates are downloadable Adobe InDesign or Microsoft Word files.)
One of the key benefits of starting with a brochure template is that you can quickly create a design that you like with a minimal budget. With a template, you should be able to insert your copy and images, substitute a color palette if you like and have a brochure that’s ready for the printer in one sitting.
How to Import a Brochure Template Into Word

3 Things to Look for In a Brochure Template
Not all brochure templates are created equal. Look for a template that features a professional design. (A template should be of the same design standard as if you were creating it from scratch yourself.) What else should a brochure template include?
- Look for high-quality, high-resolution everything to ensure that your brochure design looks great. That includes images, illustrations, icons and logos, typefaces and sharp color palettes.
- Add a bleed so that images that go off the canvas print well. And make sure your brochure template is sized to your print needs.
- Consider software compatibility. Some templates only come in one file format. Most designs prefer the control of a brochure template in InDesign, while beginners often like Word options.
