Question Newsletter Templates. HELP NEEDED!!

So I've decided to start a newsletter but am having problems getting it started. I've tried Word, Publisher, and Excel. I can't get it the way I like. I'm also having problems with wording.

If any of you ladies have templates, made a newsletter, or have any help for that matter please help. It's so frustrating! PM me or email me at warmsummers@aol.com

TIA.

Try Microsoft Frontpage. They have really good templates for newsletters - that's how I did mine. I didn't have the program, so I googled it and on Microsoft's webpage, there was a link for a free trial of it. So I signed up! Hopefully it is still available, so perhaps try that?

I just posted my newsletters here:
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...5&postcount=12

I will also email you over a basic template I made in Word that several other brides have used

I just sent over the email which will be a large file since I attached all of my newsletters to it.

Has anyone tried using something like mailchimp for the newsletter or did you all do attached word docs?
I don't love doing attached word docs to people I've never emailed before (I.e. my DF's great Aunt Lori) because some people don't trust email attachments from new addresses.
Did anyone have that problem or am I being silly?

That is a great idea. The only downside is that you don't have has many customization options when using the free versions. I always converted my files into PDFs since they are much smaller documents which are less likely to be blocked by emails. Plus, the PDFs will look the same on all computers.
