# How to reduce page margins and center text on it?

I need a custom title page, where the margins create a tighter area for the page contents and a title text is centered horizontally and vertically. How do I do that?

By tighter margins I mean margins that differ from my regular document margins (set in the \document command).

• do you mean something like: Indenting a whole paragraph – cmhughes Apr 7 '14 at 17:54

• did you see my answer? :) use the adjustwidth environment from the changepage package – cmhughes Apr 7 '14 at 18:22

You can use the \newgeometry and \restoregeometry commands from the geometry package with a code like this one:

\newgeometry{centering,margin=1.5cm}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\mbox{}\vfill
\begin{center}
\Huge\bfseries My Lovely Title
\end{center}
\vfill \mbox{}
\restoregeometry


These commands start a new page:
