Booklet design: Useful tips for creating booklets

By |Published On: August 3rd, 2017|Last Updated: January 22nd, 2024|

A booklet is a pretty generic term, covering everything from digital album booklet, children’s bedtime storybooks, brochures, reports, and CD/ DVD inserts. This is why there’s a wide range of booklets: square, landscape and portrait, digital booklets and printed, shorter and bigger (in terms of page number).

Stunning booklets that are easy to design

This is where we share with you some examples, some layout ideas, and a booklet template made in InDesign. You’ll find them useful and inspiring, we promise.

Booklet design software

If you already know what you want to create you might only be interested in booklet design software. Experienced designers use Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Microsoft Publisher, or PagePlus. These are great tools for editorial design, but rather complex, so you might be looking for a tool that is easier to use.

If that’s your case, you’re in luck, because we happen to have a very easy to use cloud-based software for booklet design. It’s basically a drag and drop editor, packed with editable page layouts that you can use to design each page of your booklet.

By using our page templates you will get a professional look with little effort. With our booklet design software, you don’t need to have a design diploma to get beautiful and professional layouts. It’s the fastest way to create booklets.

There’s also an option to start from blank pages.

Whatever your choice may be, you will end up with a digital booklet that you can edit as many times as you want. You can also download your work as a digital booklet PDF, so you can take it to print afterwards. Get the best of both worlds with digital and printed booklets!
