Sending out a Halloween Newsletter to your friends and family is a lot of fun and a great way to let everyone know what you will be doing for Halloween this year. We've done this for years and everyone we send one to seems to love receiving them!

Writing the Newsletter
We try to keep our Halloween Newsletter to two or three pages in length, but you can make yours longer or shorter. You can use almost any word processing software, such as MS Word, or a full fledged publishing program like MS Publisher to make a very presentable newsletter.

The newsletter should include your family's plans for Halloween and could also include trivia, tips, poems, recipes, etc.

Pictures add visual excitement to a newsletter, but try not to put more than one picture on each page, otherwise the page will look cluttered, plus it will save ink when printing the newsletter out.

Adding colored area's on a page is much more eye appealing, but also takes a lot more ink, particularly if you will be printing a lot of copies.

Be sure to run spell check on every page, nothing looks worst than a lot of spelling errors and typo's.

Printing the Newsletter
Use high quality paper for the best appearance. Once you have printed all of the pages out, you should staple the pages together in the intended order. For envelopes, you can use a full size manila envelope or fold the newsletter to fit inside of a legal envelope. Envelopes can be found in a variety of colors, including orange at your local office supply or stationary store.

Mailing the Newsletter
You will want to mail out your newsletter well before Halloween. If its a weekday, we always mail ours out on October 13th., so that it has that wonderful postmark. You can take your ready-to-send envelopes to the post office and ask that they hand stamp them.

Example Newsletter
We have created a basic Halloween newsletter in MS Word that you can download and adapt with your own Halloween related information. Since you may not have the same fonts installed as we do, we used basic fonts in the template, but suggest that the titles be changed to more appropriate fonts for Halloween. You can find a great selection of spooky fonts at HalloweenFonts.com.

Click here to download our basic MS Word "Halloween Newsletter" template (zipped). Save the file into the folder of your choice and then un-zip it. You are free to use the template for personal use, but if you use our example content or pictures, please leave the small text box with the Halloween Online web site address at the bottom of the last page.
