I have been making prntables since 2017 and I tell you, it is a business I discovered because of a need that I saw.

I wrote a post, the Ultimate Guide to Printables Business, and this post began to do well and rank on Google’s first page.

This post made me to research more about this business and I soon discovered it is a gold mine that people have ignored.

Thus started my journey of making and selling printables.

I taught myself how to make it with different software hence making it easy to produce.

I created my own system of making printables that made it easy for me to produce my kind of printables at any time I want.

With time, I began to notice that a lot of people wanted to learn how to make printables products without the stress of having to learn how to use expensive software.

As I noticed this need, I created a course the Newbie printables business course

Let us get to the business of the day which is how to make printables using Microsoft publisher.

Steps on how to make printables using Microsoft publisher

1.Get the App

First, before we move ahead, you may ask what is Microsoft publisher? believe me I was also spooked when I discovered this tool.

I mean I thought I knew all the Micorsoft package- the gang I call them.

Power point, Word, Excel etc.

But to discover after twenty-something years of using Microsoft products that there was some app called publisher that could help me make printables, I was flabberwhelmed hahaha.

Microsoft publisher often comes with the Microsoft package, so if you are already using Microsoft package, it’s in there.

Now let’s get it, if you want to find it, just go to your computer search bar and type Microsoft publisher. Check the picture below.

Before you start your project, you must have decided what you want to make.

I have covered all about how to find the best printables ideas that sell in my course.

Once you have found the app, open it up and your first page is ready for your creation.

2.Choose a template

Once the app is open, choose a template, I usually use a blank template because I want to make my creation unique.

You can choose any template that suits you.

Once your template is ready it is time to start creating what you want.

Here is what my blank template looks like before I start creating.

So for this example, I want to make a checklist to give you as a freebie when you subscribe to my email list.

To do that here is what I will do first, I will first insert a fancy background that I made in Canva.

Canva is another software I use for making printables, if you want to learn how to make printables using Canva.

You need to sign up for my Newbie printables course version 1

I taught extensively how to use Canva to create printables there.

In case you are wondering if Version 1 is different from what I just showed you above.

Yes, it is, I first created Version 1 first, but with popular demand, I created Version 2.

The first course I showed you above is a bundle course which consists of the two courses( Version 1 and 2)

Sometimes people want to buy Version 1 first before buying Version 2

It’s up to you, buying the bundle course saves you money.

So let’s continue

To insert the fancy background, I click insert pictures and upload the picture from my computer.

The picture is inserted

Once I have inserted my fancy background here is what the template looks like

4.Add objects

Now that we have created a background for this checklist, the next is to use objects that are available on Microsoft Publisher to design the checklist.

Some things you can add include

  • Pictures
  • Vectors
  • Shapes
  • Textbox

So, to continue to create this checklist, I want to insert the rectangle shape to give a heading to the checklist.

After inserting the rectangular shape, I write the title of the checklist.

I then go-ahead to use a combination of the above-listed shapes to design a printables product.

My end product looks like this

The final product is a PDF that I can extract and save on the computer

To get a graphic picture of the product, click fit to size on the PDF
