How to Make a Brochure on PowerPoint

Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how to create a brochure on PowerPoint.

Step 1: Open a blank presentation on PowerPoint

Open your PowerPoint and start to make a brochure from scratch because there is no pre-made brochure template in MS PowerPoint. Open a blank presentation and remove all the text boxes and placeholders from the slide to get a blank layout.

Step 2: Insert a table

Go to the Insert tab and select a table of “3x1,” i.e., three rows and one column. Resize the table to fit the slide by dragging the corners. Make sure you leave around 0.5 inches of space for margins. You can set the table on specific measurements using the Table Size option under the Table Tools Layout tab.

Then you can also change the table color under the Table Tools Design tab.

Step 3: Create a Duplicate Slide

Create a duplicate slide, then slide one will be the front of your brochure, while slide two will be the back. It would be best if you did this because the typical brochure is usually tri-fold like the below one. Or, you can skip this step if you want to make another kind of brochure.

Step 4: Edit your brochure

If you selected a PowerPoint brochure template, you could customize it by adding images and graphics. You can add pictures from your gallery by clicking on the Pictures under the Insert Tab. You can resize the images by dragging the corner and edit them by selecting different options under the Format tab.

Step 5: Add text boxes

Add text boxes onto the slides and start typing the information you want to share on the brochure. You can bold the headings and put essential notes in Italics, highlight the text, and change the font style and size.

Step 6: Customize your brochure

Arrange the images and text according to your aesthetics and personal preferences. Keep designing the brochure until you are pleased with how it looks. Here is a brochure that is made in PowerPoint.
