There are 12 newsletter templates included, one for each month. Each month has 2 pages so you can do front and back. Or just use the first page if you choose. I've added text boxes, you type over my text and format with whichever font and size you'd like.
You can use them for monthly OR weekly newsletters.
Most of the clip art and graphics are in color, but they print nicely in black and white too. I print mine in black and white on colored paper to send home and make a colored copy to hang up in our classroom for the month.
