The remaining Text on the Flyer uses the Desyrel Font by Apostrophic Labs.

You can download this Free Font from Fontsquirrel.

For a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you must first install it. Any Font installed while Microsoft Publisher is open, will not be visible in the Font List.

To correct this, you must first restart the Microsoft Publisher program after Font(s) installation.

Step 21: Insert WordArt

Sticking with the 10 Basic Flyer Design Principles, let's add the Title to the Flyer next.

On the Insert Tab select the WordArt Icon from the Text Group.
