A hand written note can say a lot to the recipient about how much you care.
So, this productivity blog (and video) is about using MS-Word to make a Thank You note.
With MS-Word open at a blank document, the first thing to do is make the page an A5 size and change the margins:
1. Selecting [Page Layout] > [Size] > [A5]
2. Still working in the [Page Layout] tab, select [Margins] > [Narrow]
To assist in placing items (such as titles etc) on the card, I’m going to turn on the Gridline:
1. Selecting [View] > Gridlines
Now to place the tile of our card (“Thank you”) on the page, I’m going to use a Text Box and locate this towards the bottom of the page so when I print the page I can folder the page in half and write on the inside.
To insert a text box and position it:
1. Selecting [Insert] > [Text Box] > select an image to work with
2. Now drag the image (keep your cursor on the board of the image) to the bottom of the page
3. You might like to resize the image to take up the width of the page (work with your cursor on the edge of the image to re-size it)
Now to put the text in the box,
1. Click inside the box and type
2. You might like to adjust the text font and size you use. I often use Brush Script MT with 48 points.
When ready to print, I suggest folding an A4 page in half and cutting it into two A5 pieces of paper and place one piece in the printer then
1. Select [File] > [Print]
Now simply folder your card in half and write on the inside.
