Free Editable Old Newspaper Powerpoint Template

Free Editable Old Newspaper Powerpoint Template

We have just added to our popular free editable PowerPoint newspaper templates with this Old Times newspaper design. With these you can create your own news headlines, articles and insert your own pictures.

This spoof newspaper template could have many uses, including college and school projects and fun cards to send news to your friends and family. You could make a nice news magazine using the template or create an old-style “Wanted” poster with reward.

If you are stuck for ideas for content, have a look at our history ideas. You could consider writing about a historic figure, notable event or decade. This would work well for big discoveries, just as electricity or penicillin. You could create a humorous newspaper for somebodies birthday, making the joke that they were born in the ‘good old days’. This could also work for a fun anniversary idea, especially or silver and gold!

  8. 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.
