I love the doodle look because it's so fun and whimsical. These are cute but not too young looking. This pack of newsletters has the same size boxes on each one (where you type your weekly or monthly information), but there are 10 different doodle newsletter backgrounds.
Please hover over the thumbnail samples and view the preview above to see what they look like. You will want to make sure the text box sizes and position will work for you.
YOU CAN NOT CHANGE the size of the white sections on the template. The background image is not editable, but you can add text boxes onto the white sections. You can also add text, use different fonts, and insert images over the top, but you CAN NOT change the basic format.
There are 3 different formats for each background. Click the preview to get a better idea of what that means :-)
**One with predetermined headings on the sections, plus cute arrows. If you choose to use the prelabeled sections, they say "Upcoming Events", "Lots of Learning" and "Other Info".
**One with cute arrows and you type in the headings of each section.
**One with no arrows or headings for each section. You add your own.
The newsletters are in power point with the template pictures embedded as the background image. You will simply open the power point and enable editing. You will insert text boxes and choose your fonts. You will type onto it like you would any other power point. If you are not sure how to do this, CLICK HERE to read a blog post I wrote detailing the steps.
Each template says "NEWSLETTER" and "from the desk of". There is also a section that says 'week of' and a place for your email.
