It may seem strange to some people, but there is still a demand for the written word out there in the offline world. Gasp! Sure, mainstream newspapers are getting the bits knocked out of them in advertising and circulation terms, but there are still successful titles making a living, especially ones focused on community and local affairs.
Which makes the offer of these Free Powerpoint Newspaper Templates very interesting. One major use of these free downloads seems to be for school projects, where ready made layouts like this can be used to good effect, for things like college notice boards, homework assignments and even fund-raising events.
There are a number of different layouts and styles available, as well as suitable inner pages if you want to go the whole 9 yards with your production. There’s even a magazine version available for the truly ambitious. We particularly like the fact that the templates work flawlessly with the free open source LibreOffice Impress product, so you’re not limited by having to buy Microsoft’s product either.
To use them, just download and open with your presentation program of choice, then save the document to transition out of Read Only mode into one where you can edit text and images. Definitely worth a bookmark if you’re at all publishing inclined.
