We see a lot of presentation documents printed in our centers, and we’ve gathered some tips for how to put your best foot forward with your printed presentations.
- Use a white background. On the screen, a colored background may look nice, but in print, a white background is the way to go for clarity and ease of reading.
- If using Microsoft PowerPoint, keep the wording limited on each slide. Nobody wants to see a page full of text, especially on a slide presentation. You can usually make your point stronger in fewer words.
- Use pictures. Charts, graphs and images add color and variety to the design and often illustrate your point better than words.
- Number your pages. Many people forget to do this, but it’s critical when referring your readers to a certain section or key point.
- Bind it, don’t staple it. If you want to make the best impression, coil binding looks professional, helps the pages turn easily and is relatively inexpensive and easy to do.
