Headers and Footers

Headers run along the top of a page and footers the bottom. Header and footer information is usually mundane, but helps organize the publication.

In a textbook, for instance, chapter headings are often placed at the top of the page, which helps readers find their place. In a company newsletter, department headings may appear at the top and the company name or logo at the bottom.

We placed the word Freestone at the bottom of left-hand pages and the words Colorado State University at the bottom of right-hand pages.

When placed as a header or footer, logos and chapter headings become repeating elements that unify the appearance of your publication. Add headers and footers to your style sheet before beginning your layout.
