      1. It is always best to design ads in graphic design software. Here are some recommendations:
        1. Affinity Photo (Favorite as of 2018) — $50 (Win/Mac), $20 (iPad)
        2. Adobe PhotoShop — Unknown pricing
        3. Gimp — Free — A little hard to use, but very powerful
        4. PagePlus — Free for older version — Silent Word Newspaper designed in PagePlus (2000-2018)
        5. GetPaint — Free
      2. Print your design to confirm all elements print as you intended.
      3. Make sure the design fits within the space required.  Use program rulers, then print the design and use a standard ruler.
      4. Good designs usually use no more than 3 different fonts.
      5. Smallest recommended font size is 8 points. 10 points and above is best.
      6. Keep the design simple.  White space attracts attention.
      7. Avoid underlining.  Use bold or italics instead.
