I have seen such a beautiful preamble (got the PDF from on of my studentfriends and need help to create such a beautiful titlepage. The black bands are to make the picture anonymous, to hide the identity of my friend.

But I just need such a beautiful titlepage for my instructors. No one of us has the preamble anymore :(

Kind regards

and thank you very much in advance.

Is it allowed to ask such a question in this forum?enter image description here

  • You can use tabularx package and tabular for the header and a center environment with small capitals \textsc or \scshape and font dimension switches (e.g., \large) for the rest. – Guido Apr 26 '14 at 20:09

This one uses microtype for the letter spacing.

\documentclass{article}
\pagestyle{empty}% for cropping
\usepackage{microtype}
\begin{document}
\begingroup
    \noindent
    \bfseries
    \begin{tabular}{|p{\dimexpr0.5\textwidth-2\tabcolsep}p{\dimexpr0.5\textwidth-2\tabcolsep}|}
        \hline
        Received:            & Approved:  \cr
                             & Date:      \cr
                             & Signature: \cr
        (for the instructor) &            \cr
        \hline
    \end{tabular}
\endgroup
\bigskip
\begingroup
    \centering
    \obeylines
    \scshape
    \lsstyle
    \large Modern Box
    \LARGE Aflering 3
    \Large John Boxer
    \large Institute for Boxes
    \large Box University
    \large 26/04/2014
\endgroup
\end{document}

  • but what should I do to get headers, footers and pagenumbering after this front page? – Conrad Kopernikus Apr 26 '14 at 21:01
  • @user254805 Remove the \pagestyle{empty} and just put above your titlepage \thispagestyle{empty}. And please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user254805". – Henri Menke Apr 26 '14 at 21:04
  • Why did you use \begingroup \endgroup rather than { and }? I notice that both work fine. – A Feldman May 14 '16 at 14:38
  • @AFeldman They are synonymous. \begingroup...\endgroup feels more like a LaTeX environment and is easier to spot in the code whereas {...} is almost exclusively used to group arguments. – Henri Menke May 14 '16 at 14:54

    @AFeldman That is unfortuately wrong. Their sole purpose is grouping. But \begingroup and \endgroup can be unmatched within {}, so for example {\begingroup...}\endgroup. For further detail read the TeXbook. – Henri Menke May 15 '16 at 9:34

For the header you can use a tabular (or tabularx) environment. For the rest just a center environment with \scshape and a few font dimension switches.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\begin{document}
\noindent
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{|XX|}
\hline
\textbf{Received:} &  \textbf{Approved:}\\
                   &  \textbf{Date:}\\
                   &  \textbf{Signature:}\\
\textbf{(for the instructor)} & \\
\hline
\end{tabularx}


\begin{center}
\scshape Institute\\
\Large Course Name\\
\large Author\\

\medskip
\small \today
\end{center}

\end{document}
