In the insert tab cover page list, we have some simple samples. Creating a cover page is not that much hard, we can create our own cover page just by adding lines, adding some text boxes and some other stuff. I will create a simple cover page for you to learn. Follow the steps carefully to learn clearly. Before starting the lesson download some perfect and high-quality pictures from the internet or somewhere else. I could suggest deviant art site high-quality pictures. Click here on the link to visit the site. Most of the pictures are graphic work and hand shading and paintings.

Creating our own cover pages

The following cover page is just a simple template. You can use graphics and shapes to make it interesting and amazing cover page. Creating cover page is so easy. In creating a cover page font, picture and color are the most important things that you should know. The font should be readable to all and it should be depended on to the content that exists in the material. For example, if the material is a poem book then writing the title with the poem font would look better and tidy. First of all, you need some high-quality pictures. You can create a cover page without the picture but it won’t that be much amazing. Follow the steps.

Cover Page

Step1. Select a large size and high-quality picture because the picture should take the complete page or half of the page. Place the picture at anywhere of the page. I have placed my one on the top of the page but with some distance. The distance is for the text box.

Step 2. When you place the picture in the correct place then it is time to add a text box. For adding a text box go to insert tab in the text group you can find text box. Add the text box on the top of the page.

Step3. Add another text box below the picture. The text box is for the writer name or other information. You can add as many text boxes as you can. According to your need, you can add pictures and text boxes. In the most templates, we never use more than 3 text boxes.

Extra tips: for making an amazing and tidy cover page you can use different colors and different fonts. The font of the template really affects the style of the template and also the color does. While writing the title you can use different colors for each word or a character like I did. Don’t use too many different fonts that the audience could not read the title or whatever. The font for the title should be with style and others like writer’s name should be simple.
