What You'll Create

A black and white (b&w) newspaper advertisement that could be run in a local newspaper. It might promote a special offer or more simply remind potential customers of your name, location and purpose. It should be eye catching and contain a combination of text and images.

Use Microsoft Word to create your newspaper advertisement.


Advertising is important. Without it your business will have a hard time to survive long enough to grow. Since many people read the newspaper, it can be a cost effective way of promoting your business.

Features to include

  • Must be black and white.
  • Should measure 5"x7" / 7"x5" or smaller. Remember, you pay for newspaper ads based on their size. Large ads are expensive.
  • Include your logo. You will need to convert it to a black and white image first (using PhotoShop Elements).
  • Needs to contain all essential information (business name, location, phone number, etc.).
