Quick Tip:
How to Boost Impact with a Scholar’s Margin

When you want to kick your design up a notch, why not try a scholar’s margin? This is a wide margin that runs down the outside edge of each page, creating a wide band of white space.

It’s a great area to place pull quotes, art, photos, captions, or text boxes.

Want to break up a long block of type? Extend a pull quote or piece of art from the column into the scholar’s margin.
