Free Christmas Stationery in A3 Size Question

Author: Wes | Filed under: FREE Stationery, Training Saturday Nov 26,2011

Hi everyone,

Had a great question from Viv in Spain who was using our Christmas Holiday free stationery downloads for signs and posters in their Children’s Cancer Fund Raising Charity.

Viv wanted to know if she could have the 8.5×11 or A4 sized holiday stationery printed in an A3 format size?

The answer is yes, but it’s going to take some page modifications to do it.  For those of you that are familier with Microsoft Word editing, it probably will be fairly easy. For those that are not well versed in MS Word, it’s going to take a little more effort to learn how it’s done.

Here’s the short version:

First, I found that the 8.5×11 size is better to size at the A3 format as the A4 format is quite a bit narrower and the figures and graphics don’t look as good when resized. You may want to experiment on your own to see what you like better.

I downloaded and opened the 8.5×11 Christmas Holiday stationery she wanted and then used the “File”, Page Setup menu and set the paper size to Custom 11.7×16.5 inches. That’s the A3 size in inches. Newer versions of Word may come with the A3 option already there, mine did not.

Once that was done, you’ll find that the graphics no longer fit the page.

Go into the View – Header/Footer view and click on the graphic so that it is outlined for resizing. You may need to shrink it slightly first to get all 4 corners to show on the page. Don’t worry if all the graphic is not in view, we’ll tackle that last. As long as it’s outlined you are good to go.

Now, grab the lower right corner and drag it to size the width of the page. Next, grab the bottom middle (small square) and drag the size to fit the bottom.

Now, if you look at the top margin bar, you’ll see that the white viewable area is smaller than the page. Use your mouse to drag the right side of the white margin all the way to the right side and you’ll see the rest of your graphic come into view. Don’t tough the left margin or the small right side margin triangle as they are set in page view, not border view.

Now, just close the header/footer view and set your margine areas and adjust the header/footer margines if needed.

You are all set to go and most of our graphic images will look just great at this size for you.

For those of you that are not that good with Microsoft Word and are working for a charity, school or other non profit, just drop me a line and I’ll be happy to help you get what you need and even formate a couple of stationery pages for you and email them direct should you need that.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanza everyone!
