    1. The first thing that you are going to have to do is choose what software you would like to use to create your tri-fold brochure. inDesign has great software, but you have to be a little more computer savvy to use it. If you aren't familiar with using graphic programs, you can easily create a brochure using Word. For this tutorial, we'll teach you how to make your brochure using Microsoft Word.

    2. One of the easiest things to do is to download a template from Microsoft. They have free downloads and you can then update and adjust the template to meet your needs.

    3. If you prefer to create your own template, start by opening Microsoft Word. Click on the "File" tab at the top, and then choose "Page Setup." You want to select "landscape" as the page orientation from the pop-up.

    4. Once you have set your page orientation to landscape, you need to separate your document into 3 columns so that you can enter information on each one. Look for the "format" option at the top of your screen. Click on "format" and then click on "columns."

    5. When you click on "columns" a pop-up window will open. For a tri-fold brochure, you'll want to choose 3 columns. Word will now set up your document for 3-columns. Once you have selected 3-columns and closed the pop-up box, you will see at the top of your page, in the ruler area, that there are blue stops. These show you where your column breaks are.

    6. Now it's time to begin creating your tri-fold brochure. Remember, you will need two total pages to create the outside and inside of your brochure. If you start work on the outside of your brochure first, remember that the front page of your brochure will actually be the right column on the screen. The middle column is your back page and the left column will be the first page that people see when they open your brochure.

    7. You can now use tools like text boxes, and pictures to format and create your brochure. You can use the insert menu to insert text boxes, pictures, etc.

    8. Once you are done creating the first page of your brochure, choose, "insert" from the menu at the top. When the menu appears, choose "break" and then "page break." A new page will appear and you can then create the inside of your brochure. Remember that the inside of your brochure will appear just as it looks on the screen - the reader will read it from left to right.

    9. When you are done creating your brochure, you can either choose to print it on your own printer, or you can save the file to disk and bring it to a print shop, like Kinko's, to have it printed for you. If you are printing it yourself, you should print one side at a time, unless you have a double sided printer. When you print, print the first page first. Start by printing just one. Then place the same paper back in the printer to print the second side, you may have to do this a few times to get the format correct.
