hey i was wondering if you have microsoft word format for that?

Posted by ana — 3 Feb @ 12:40 am

i cant even use it !

Posted by Anonymous — 3 Feb @ 5:27 am

What problem do you seem to be having? I have tried the template on my computer and it works fine. You need to click the download button, save it to your computer and them be able to edit the text and picture within the newspaper.

Unfortunately we only do our templates in PowerPoint. However it may be something we look into in the future, thanks for the suggestion

Posted by rboynton — 3 Feb @ 11:40 am
