Want to create a brochure for your business? Before you begin, it may help to define brochures and what they can do for your business.

Here, I'll define a brochure and explain how it's used in the simplest terms. Then, you'll learn to easily create a brochure with premium editable brochure templates from Envato Elements.

What Is a Brochure?

First, let's go over the definition of a brochure. Basically, it's a marketing tool used to advertise a company's products or services. 

Brochures come in several shapes and sizes and can range in form from a single page that has been folded to create sections—as in bifold or trifold brochures—to the more common bound multi-page booklet.

You can use pictures and texts in brochures, meaning they need to have a professional layout and visual elements to catch the eye.

What Is a Brochure Used For?

So far, you've learned what brochures are. Let's move on to their utility. A brochure is generally used by a business to advertise its key products or services. Because of this, brochures often feature compelling text and eye-catching images. Now, let's explore how to make professional-quality brochures quickly and easily.

How to Make a Brochure

When you need to create a brochure, the easiest and most cost-effective way is to use a professionally designed, editable brochure template. Brochure design templates provide you with an aesthetically appealing layout with placeholder text, images, and graphics.

When you customise the template, the layout stays locked in place, and you replace the placeholders with your own content. A brochure template can be used repeatedly, so you only need to buy it once.
