Microsoft Word Booklet Templates

It’’s no secret that I don’t care much for paper. If I can do something electronically instead of with paper, I usually choose pixels over pulp. When I started developing our Intranet at my full-time job, we had a contest between the employees to determine the name for it. My suggestion was to call it Paper Sucks. It didn’t get very many votes. :-(

At the same time, however, I realize that there are times when paper is just more efficient. For example, I seem to be more productive when I work from a printed next actions list than when I work from one on my monitor or my Palm.

When I absolutely have to have something on paper, I usually prefer it to be digest sized (8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″). (I don’t have a good reason for this, I just prefer that size.)

Many years ago (May 6th-8th, 1999) to be exact, I developed 16 Word templates that would print digest sized booklets for me. Over the years, I”ve used these countless times. I’ve shared them with friends and co-workers, but I’ve never thought about publishing them. I had to use one this past weekend and thought that I might as well share them with the world. With most printer drivers these days offering 2-up printing you may not find them as useful as I did 6 years ago. I still find that they are quite handy to have around.

The WordBookletTemplates.zip file contains Microsoft Word templates for 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, and 32 page booklets, with and without page numbers (16 templates in all). I think I developed these with Microsoft Word 97 and I’ve never made any changes to them. They use a series of text boxes that flow from one to the other to get the text where it is supposed to be in the booklet.

To use them, simply start a new document based on the template of choice and start typing (or paste your text) into the text box on the right hand side of the first page. The text will flow to fill all the other pages as needed. To understand this better, you may find it useful to start with one of the templates with page numbers. If you shrink the page size down so that you can view all the pages, it may appear that your text is all over the place. Don’t panic! That’s normal, and there is a reason for it.

Make sure your printer has 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper in it. If your printer does duplexing, simply print your document. If your printer doesn’t offer duplexing, then it will be a simple 3-step process for you: 1) Print out all the odd numbered pages; 2) When they are done, reverse the sort order of the pages [This may vary by printer model and settings]; 3) Print out all the even numbered pages on the back of the odd numbered pages. Once all your pages have printed, simply fold them in half. The pages will be set up so that they will form a properly numbered series of pages from beginning to end.

Once the pages are printed, I use a long reach stapler to bind them together. (I omit this step on the 4-page booklet because it’s only one piece of paper, of course.)

Oh, they seem to work in OpenOffice.org too! Enjoy!

Update (Nov. 3, 2006): So many people have asked me to create custom size templates for them that I have decided to start offering this service. The standard templates that are linked to above will remain free, but for $49 I will create custom size templates for you in all 16 variations: 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 20-, 24-, 28-, and 32-page booklets with and without page numbers. I will need to get some information from you about your specific requirements within the available options. Email me at rickyspears@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing custom Microsoft Word Booklet Templates.

    Ricky, how generous of you to offer this up. Thank you. Question: I need to print a 8.5 x 11 booklet (on 11 x 17 sheets). These are all digest size. Do you have 8.5 x 11 booklet or can you point me in the right direction? Thanks! Darby

  11. 11
    rickyspears Says:

    Darby – I don’t have booklet templates for 11×17 paper. Since I don’t have need of them myself, I also can’t quite justify the time to develop them. Sorry. You could take on of the templates that I provided that has the number of pages you need, change the paper size to 11×17, and then adjust the sizes and locations of each of the text boxes. When repositioning the text boxes, it will be easier to figure out what size they need to be and where they need to be located and enter those measurements into the properties box for each one instead of trying to just drag them to the right location and size.

    Richard Says:

    Hello,

    You have any ideal how to add more pages? I seen the post
    above that it don’t allow more than 32 linked boxes.

    If I continued with a new project – ( fill up the first 32 linked boxes) then start a new
    32 template page you have any ideal how I can number them or say I did not need all the 32 in the next set
    how to do that? Like slip them into the first 32?

    Thanks

    rickyspears Says:

    Richard – I guess if I had some text that would span 40 pages, I would I would use a combination of the 32-page template and the 8-page template. Here are the steps I would probably take:
    – Paste my text into the 32-page template with page numbers
    – Cut all text that flowed past page 16 (the middle point of that template)
    – Paste that text into the 8-page template with page numbers
    – Cut the remaining text that didn’t fit in the 8-page template
    – Paste it into pages 17-32 of the 32-page template
    – Edit the page numbers for pages 1-8 in the 8-page template to be 17-24
    – Edit the page numbers for pages 17-32 in the 32-page template to be 25-40
    – Print the two separate booklets and insert the 8-page printout where it belongs inside the 32-page printout

    This seems to make sense. You’ll probably just have to play with it.a

    Now I can put together the small Fair Book without the aggravation of having to figure out what went where.

    Again, thanks! Your hard work has certainly made this gal happy!

    olaf Says:

    found your web-site during a search for booklet template, but it’s not for european paper sizes in a4 format.
    Initially thought that it would create no problem to simply change the paper size and the text field size. Unfortunately it isn’t so easy as I hoped. Changed the text field on the first page, but the new size of the textframe is not inherited to the other pages !
    Is there a simple solution for that ? to adjust the formatting of every textframe in a 20 page boeklet manually isn’t realy fun.
    (I use word2000)

  24. 24
    rickyspears Says:

    Olaf – It may not be fun, but it sure is cheap! Here is a technique that may help you. Select a zoom level of something like 25% so you can see all the pages in the booklet. Then select the first text box on the left hand side of the firs page, hold down the shift key and select all the other left-hand side text boxes. Release the shift key and right click on the border of one of the selected text boxes and choose “Format Text Box”. Make your changes on the “Size” pane. Any changes should be reflected in all the selected text boxes. Good luck! Also, once you modify the templates, if you would like to share them with the rest of the world, as I have done, send them to me and I will add a link to them in my post as well. You can save others some time and trouble.

    Kim Says:

    Hi Ricky,
    The templates are working out great, except that I cannot create columns or figure out how to insert pictures with text next to it instead of below it. WordArt won’t carry over either. Is there any way to allow these things? Besides putting the text in as part of the photo…

  33. 33
    rickyspears Says:

    Kim – You have discovered one of the shortcomings of text boxes in Microsoft Word. We just published a Christmas devotional at my church and we used the booklet templates for that. I found that you can sometimes format the text and other objects, like images, in another Word document, where they aren’t inside a textbox, and then copy and paste them into the Word templates. I won’t guarantee this will work in all cases, however. Good luck!

    Anne Says:

    Hi, thanks for posting this! Obviously, there is a need for this, as you are still getting comments almost two year later.

    It’s the only template I can find for this size booklet. I am trying to play around with making it three times as many pages, and making the page numbers more than the 32, but I think you have to be good at math, which I’m not. Any thoughts on that?

    Thank you again. You rock.

  35. 35
    rickyspears Says:

    Anne – Thanks for the kudos! I haven’t tried it in Office 2007 yet, but all previous versions of office have a limit of 32 linked text boxes. That’s why the templates only go up to 32 pages.

    As for calculating the page locations, you can put the page number on each page using a really big font, and then adjust the view to about 12% to see all the numbers in order. If you do this with a couple of the larger templates, you’ll be able to see the pattern. It’s not complex math. :o )

    I am designing a double column version of a 20,000-line Middle English poem, with one version on the left and the other on the right. I already made 100 pages (break! break! break!) and copied the text boxes onto all of them — now I find this incredibly stooopid 32 page limit! Do you know if this is still in force with Word 2007? I think I may have to revert to using Adobe’s Indesign….

You will need to first need to unzip this file using a program such as WinZip (www.winzip.com) to extract the templates so you can open them with Word.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh1W15BWCUk

  57. 57
    rickyspears Says:

    Alan – These booklet templates assume that you are printing 8.5″ x 5.5″ booklets that are stapled together. None of these will work for your purpose as shown in the video you linked to. You can accomplish that by creating a table in Word and changing the text direction for each cell as needed. You will need to enter the content individually for each cell, however, because table cells do not allow linking. Linked text boxes, like my templates here use, do not allow rotation of text.

    Patricia Says:

    The booklet templates are very useful, and I’m grateful to have found them, but the process is still a giant pain compared with the simplicity of making booklets with the Macintosh program Nisus Writer — in that program, the text flowed automatically into whatever size half-sheet booklet one wanted to make. As it happens, I don’t think it works well to make folded booklets of more than 32 pages (anything longer and it takes fussy trimming of the edges to make it look right for the inside pages, and then one would have to tinker with the margins to make those inner pages look good. If I have a bigger project, I would break it up into several smaller booklets, or just use larger paper and have the output tape-bound rather than folded and stapled.

    With the old Nisus one could see the pages in regular order, but when it got printed, the first sheet on the first side would come out with page 16 (or whatever was the last page) on the left and page 1 on the right, and so on. I’m still maintaining a System 9 Macintosh so that I can go back and use Nisus sometimes. The new versions of Nisus for OS X still haven’t restored the booklet format, but Mac users who like making booklets should get in touch with the program’s developers, who I think still might restore this feature.

    rickyspears Says:

    Megan – I’m glad you find the templates useful! If you are using the duplex feature of your printer, try changing the duplex settings in your printer dialog box. If you are doing manual duplex, just flip your paper around the other way before you print the back pages. Good luck!

    Is there a way to reverse the booklet? I want to go from a 12 page booklet back to single page document. Is the only way to “cut and paste”? Thanks!!

    rickyspears Says:

    Kristy – Because the text is all in flowing text boxes, there is no easier way to get it all out than to do a CTRL-A to select all the text, then a CTRL-C to copy it, and then paste it into a new blank document.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I’ve spent untold hours trying to understand the video provided by Microsoft and then
    trying to figure it out by myself using what I thought I’d learned. Obviously I
    didn’t get it!!! The last time I tried to create a booklet the pages were
    consecutive and our local printer had to figure out how to get it in order–which was frustrating for her and expensive for me. What a relief! Thanks again.

    Alice Says:

    Is there a way to add photos or graphics to the booklet template and be able to move the photos around? I can’t seem to format graphics, just add them to the top or bottom of the page. Any suggestions?

  103. 103
    Susan-Lynn Says:

    As a followup to Alice’s question, I figured out how to manipulate the cursor to move the photos around, BUT is there any way they can be moved to the left or right margin? Right now all of the photos are in the middle and they take up valuable text space that way.

    Ricky,

    I have just used your templates to set up yet another booklet, and once again I am amazed at how fast and easy they are to use.

    It is very generous of you to continue to offer such a helpful tool for free.

    Thanks so much! It’s not the printer duplexing that kills me, it’s the getting it right in Word.
    I’m really grateful.

    I am trying add a header to the template. Can you tell me how this can be done. Thanks.

  107. 107
    rickyspears Says:

    Ggene – You’ll probably need to add text boxes where you want your header to be on each page and manually edit what is in each one. You can see how this is done by looking at the templates with page numbers at the bottom. That’s not a true footer, just a separate text box at the bottom of each page. Good luck!

    Monique Says:

    So let me understand a previous question and answer. I want to print a 5.5 X 8.5 booklet. Which is your design landscaped.
    Using your design I will have to adjust each cell to create my 5.5 X 8.5 booklet.

  109. 109
    rickyspears Says:

    Monique – You didn’t indicate which response concerns you. These templates assume you are creating a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ booklet, so you likely won’t need to make any adjustments. Try it and see if it works for you.

    Great scot, what a marvelous contribution to productivity! Your generosity is marvelous, Ricky!

    I need a little help. Have done a 20 page booklet on our church. Started with 12, went to 16 and now 20. Easily copied and pasted my work from one to the other all at one time.

    Problem is with the left margin. I’m using Open Office 3.0. The template gives me a 1 1/2″ margin on the left and nothing on the right. How might I adjust the boxes to the appropriate spot? Searched your blog for an answer, so forgive me if you have already addressed this.

    Thanks!

  111. 111
    Bill Baute Says:

    OK, I think I have it. Adjusted the margins at the top, just as one would for any other document. Printing it and it looks great!

    Sorry for being an ignoramus.

    I have been making some books for kids in Haiti. I love the templates. There is an error on the 28 page booklet though. Instead of 3 it reads 23. You may want to fix that.
    Thank you,

    Ricky,
    You won’t believe the hours I spent(and the paper !) trying to construct a simple, 8 pg booklet. Then I found your site. What’s wrong with Microsoft that they can’t provide clear, succinct instructions anywhere ! Thanks so much. I would have paid for the template.
