How to Make Bookmarks in Publisher [10+ Best Examples]


Eyes here, bookworms. Bookmarks are essential if you are a reader. Everyone probably knows what it is by now, so a description is not really necessary here. Everyone’s preference in bookmarks differs though. Some people choose to buy them in bookstores, others use day-to-day items, and others make one themselves.

How to Make Bookmarks in Publisher

Here are the easy steps on how to make and customize your own bookmark in Microsoft Publisher.

1. Launch Microsoft Publisher on your computer

That should be easy to do. Double-click on the Publisher icon on your desktop. If it is not there, check your Start menu and refer to the Microsoft Office folder.

2. Create a new publication

Hover your mouse track to the template’s list and click “More Blank Page Sizes.” After that, go to “Customs” and click “Create new page size.”

3. Moving forward

In the “Name Section,” go ahead and fill in a name of your choosing. Proceed then to the “Page” section, and set the width to 2 inches, and the height to 7 inches. Click “okay,” then click the “Create” button to finish the template of your bookmark. Now, you are ready to design it.

4. Designing the bookmark

During this part of the creation of the bookmark, you can choose to have your own photo as a background for the bookmark or choose from the design materials provided by Publisher. To use these, go to the “Objects” tab to add texts and designs to your bookmark.

5. Printing the bookmark

Once you are settled with your design, press Ctrl + P to print your bookmark. Choose “Multiple Copies Per Sheet” if you want to have backup bookmarks to save paper.

12. Harry Potter Books with Bookmarks

Harry Potter fans will surely love to have matching bookmarks with their books. And because the design of the bookmarks are based on the houses of Hogwarts—Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff—they are free to choose their favorite.

Bookmarks are wonderful items for readers to utilize. We cannot always read an entire book in one sitting. We all have other things to do like work and school, so most of the time we set it aside for a period of time until our schedule becomes open enough for us to read. Folding a page from the book is a massive no for book lovers, and memorizing the page you left off is just irresponsible. Every book lover needs a bookmark. You can either buy one or make one yourself, and we all know how important it is to save a couple of bucks.
