If you love one of those templates, I’d suggest finding a computer to use that does have adobe writer or a person (who has the software) to enter your content into the program.  If you have the content ready to go and can send someone the link, it will take just a few minutes to create the pdf and send it back to you.

You can download a trial version of Adobe’s programs at their website.  I think they have 60 or 30-day trials.  They don’t have full functionality of all the bells and whistles, but you probably don’t need ’em.

Fill in your details, and then be sure to save a version as a PDF (’cause once your trial stops working, if you need to make more print outs, etc. you won’t have a copy!)  You might also try saving the background (without any text) as a very high res JPEG while you have the trial b/c if the worst happens, and you find later you need to make changes, you can cobble something together in Word or other more simple programs by using text boxes or columns/tables on top of the JPEG as a background.

It’s possible to do something very similar by using Word (utilizing text boxes and/or columns/tables and tinting the background of your columns/tables), but it would probably take quite a bit of patience. 

I’ve also never tried this, nor do I know how it works as far as Adobe files being openable, but there’s a program called GIMP out there that’s the open-source (free) version of Photoshop (or Illustrator, I forget which). Another WB poster might be able to shed some light on that for you.

It looks like those templates are fillable pdf files, you might be able to enter everything on one of those.

If not, I have photoshop and can do conversions as well.  PM if you would like any help
