Let me guess… The reason you’re here is because you want to make your white paper more exciting and elegant than just a plain MS Word document. The problem? Most of the white paper templates available online are bland, boring, or simply old-school.

While doing research for this article, I was stunned to see how many white paper templates look as if they were taken out of the 90s. White papers are crucial to establishing thought leadership for your business. Their design should be just as polished as the content. And that’s what I’m here to help you with.

I rummaged through hundreds of white paper templates to compile only the best of the best for you to pick. See the gallery below, choose the template you like best, and download with a single click.

This one, designed by Venngage, is visibly more adventurous than the two previous ones. A great choice if your white paper contains lots of data you want to visualize to make an impact. Comes with easy-to-use charts and other dataviz tools and an eye-catching design.

Another one from Venngage, a bit more toned down but still making a great first impression thanks to a smart choice of colors and big, bold headings for enhanced readability. Will work great for teams in marketing, consulting, or PR.

Nothing too flashy about this one but it’s well balanced and features tons of white space to let your readers’ eyes rest for a bit. Plus, it has a lot of nicely-positioned placeholders for images so if your white paper contains a lot of pictures, this one will serve you great.

brochure

Brochure

One of the most advanced designs in our gallery, this one is a very professional template for a brochure-like white paper. Great when you want to print your document out, less so when only used for a digital version. It gives you a lot of versatility and room for custom tweaks, but requires a basic knowledge of PS (and a license, of course).

Editing: Photoshop.

Another stunning white paper template created by Tanvir Ahmed Bhuiyan of Bangladesh. A fantastic pick for IT professionals or engineers—it features a lot of data visualization options for highly technical specifications.

Editing: InDesign.

I’ll be frank, to me, this is the best-looking template in this gallery. Much like with the other examples of foldable white paper templates above, it might not work great when previewed on a screen, instead of in print, but the design itself is flawless. Kudos to the creator, Erick Ragas!

Editing: InDesign.

Solar energy

Last but not least, another highly-advanced template for a stunning white paper, created by Artur Bartnik. It features countless fill-in-the-blanks templates for all sorts of data visualizations you might need, strategically-located image placeholders, and dedicated page layouts for different sections of your white paper. Sound too good to be true? Well, the only problem might be the difficulty of editing if you’re not familiar with some basic graphic design software.
