Don’t forget the Staff! Studio 300 staff members are always willing to assist you through software or hardware issues. They are also available for one-on-one training sessions to answer basic or specific questions related to software or hardware.

Being a multimedia student means that you often find yourself scrambling to complete projects or overcoming obstacles in completing projects. Take advantage of all that Studio 300 has to offer and make your school year a breeze!

Design Your Own Flyers and Brochures

At Studio 300, you can create and print your own materials such as flyers, brochures, newsletters, and business cards! Apple Pages and Microsoft Word have built-in templates that make it quick and easy to customize layouts by replacing placeholder type and using drag-and-drop to swap out photos (see two Pages templates below). Studio 300 Mac computers also come equipped with the more powerful Adobe Creative Cloud software (formerly CS6) including InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Although these heavy-hitters have a higher learning curve, they allow you to create illustrations and logos, manipulate photos, do more fine-tuning, manage large projects, and more.

Let Studio 300 help you create flyers to spread the word for your next garage sale, birthday party, barbecue, reunion, or movie night this summer!
