Creating Half Page Flyer in Word

Student Activities would like all flyers to be 1/2 page -- instead of a full 8.5" by 11" they want flyers to be 8.5" by 5.5"

Here's how to do that in Word 2010.

Select the "Page Layout" ribbon and click on the "Margins" tab.

Select “Custom Margins” at the bottom of the list.

On the “Margins” tab of the new window, select "2 pages per sheet" for "Multiple pages."

Click "OK" to accept the half-fold settings in Microsoft Word.

Type in the information you want to include in the top half of your document. Word will add an automatic page break when you've moved (use the enter key if necessary) to the bottom half of your document.

Add in the content for the bottom half of your page. If you want the top and bottom to be the same, simply copy the contents of the top section to the bottom.

IMPORTANT: Each half should appear on a different page in print preview.

Print a single test page to make sure you have everything the way you would like.

If a 3rd page appears at the bottom of the screen, that will result in a blank page being printed.
