10/3/105:46 pm MacMost Forum Question: Using pages to create a postcard I would like to learn how to create a postcard using pages — JIm Moses Comments: 5 Responses to “Using pages to create a postcard” Gary Rosenzweig 10/3/10 @ 5:50 pm Do you mean a physical postcard, like one you would send in the mail? I’d imagine you would just design one, and then print it. Typically they have a picture on one side, and then the other is blank, or has boxes for an address, stamps, etc. It really just depends on what you want. Just use the design tool in Pages and build what you want. I think most professional designers would use Adobe Illustrator or something similar to make a postcard, but there is no reason you can’t make one in Pages. Brett 3/21/11 @ 6:11 pm Hey Gary, If you’re doing a postcard, I was under the impression that in Pages you can’t place text directly over a image, is this true? -Brett Gary Rosenzweig 3/21/11 @ 6:39 pm No, not at all. Just choose the image, and then in the Inspector you can select the wrapping style for the image under “Object Placement.” Set it for “in the background.” Now you can place a text box right over it. Natalie 6/25/12 @ 3:53 pm I am trying to make a half page postcard in pages, but I cannot figure out how to do it. It is very easy in Publisher on the PC and I assumed it would be similar in Pages, but I haven’t figured it out. And tips? Gary Rosenzweig 6/26/12 @ 3:19 am Lots of ways. You could just use a Page Layout document and only use the top half of the page. Or, create a document with the page size to half a page (but that would work better if you actually had postcard-sized paper). Comments Closed.
