Jamie will demonstrate how to choose an eye-popping elegant layout, and show you how easy it is to drop in your stories and pictures. Your annual newsletter will quickly take shape and be something to behold!

He’ll also go over how to use the Contacts app to format and print labels so you can snail mail your letters...just like old times!

Pages is also great for desktop publishing seasonal newsletters for your business that encourage engagement, whether you are driving holiday sales, discussing charitable endeavors, or sincerely sending people your best wishes.
