Make Your Letter Stand Out with a Table

Do you want a new look for your prayer letters?   Follow these easy, detailed steps in Word to create a sharp eNewsletter or regular newsletter like the one pictured.  You can use mail merge with this letter and/or send it in an email.

After you have the basics down, try expanding on the concept and use a 3×3 cell grid with pictures on both sides, or pictures on one side and other text on the other side (like prayer requests, etc). You can also resize the column width to put more emphasis on one portion than another. Experiment and have fun with it.

When you are comfortable with this technique, try inserting a logo “on top of” the table and moving it to where you want it.  See this sample prayer letter.
