Our Microsoft Publisher templates, and their examples and step-by-step guides, are suitable for all staff to use and available by downloading the toolkits above. The toolkits currently available are for posters and report covers.

Toolkits are being produced for other materials and will be available here when ready. In the meantime, if you would like copies of the other Microsoft Publisher templates, email communications-team@bristol.ac.uk with your request.

Further guidance on using the publisher templates is available through our video tutorials.
