Templates for Word and Publisher

This page contains Purdue Extension publication templates in Word and Publisher formats, in full-color and black-only versions.

You can also find Additional Help about using mail merge and paragraph styles.

Using and Modifying Templates

Use the color templates for most purposes. Use the black-only templates if you will reproduce documents on a Risograph or equipment that cannot reproduce in grayscale. If you use a photo copier, use the color template because the photo copier can print in grayscale.

Remember, Purdue Extension staff can modify the appearance of these templates to suit their particular needs. For guidance, please refer to Purdue Extension Brand Basics.

Additional Help

Using Mail Merge
The Publisher templates for postcards and nametags print multiple copies of each document per page. To change the addressee on the postcards or the name on the nametags, you will need to perform a mail merge. Learn more about mail merge.

Using Styles
Most of these templates contain recommended styles. Learn more about using template styles in Word and Publisher.

Modifying Templates
