Free InDesign Template of the Month: Newsletter (Premium Members’ Benefit)

It’s time for templates again! This month, Premium members of InDesignSecrets get a cool Newsletter template, normally $99, but free for you, courtesy of StockLayouts. (Not a Premium member? Sign up here.)


StockLayouts has set it up as a newsletter for a homeless shelter, but the colorful grid design could be adapted for all kinds of uses. Just change the text and images, and you’re good to go. And if you’re using InDesign CC 2014 you could also use the nifty new Color Theme tool to sample colors from your own images and use them to recolor the blocks in the grid.

All of the placeholder images used in the template are included in the download. We also added paragraph and character styles to the template, and applied them to the copy. For fonts, the document uses Arial and Times, but of course you can quickly change these in the styles via Type >Find Font.

The download package includes one template in InDesign CC 2014 and IDML formats, and all linked artwork which includes some stock photo placeholder images. The IDML version can be opened with InDesign CS4 and later.

If you like the newsletter design, be sure to check out its theme page on the StockLayouts website for even more templates (for purchase) to create attractive matching business cards, letterheads, flyers, posters, and brochures.

  1. Mike, it appears that the file you have distributed as a 8.5×11 tri-fold brochure is actually their 11×17 newsletter template.

  2. I would love to get the HELPING HAND NEWSLETTER free as a premium member but can’t seem to get from STOCKLAYOUTS FREE? Can you help me here please.
