Help for Designing Marketing Flyers
Flyers are used for a variety of purposes. They can be used to advertise special moments in peopleâ€™s lives. They are often used to promote local
things such as garage sales or yard sales. And, perhaps most commonly, small businesses use flyers to promote their company.
If you are planning on doing a flyer printing project for your business, there are some things you can do to help it go along smoothly. Here is a
rundown of some basic tips to help you get started.
1. Take enough time
Do not make the mistake of rushing through your flyer design. Even if you think you need your flyers printed in a very short time, you still should take
at least a day to let the design â€œsink inâ€• in your mind. Determine what message you are trying to convey to your customers, and how you are
going to use your flyers to convey that message. From that, come up with a rough draft. But, once you have that done, sit on it for a night. Look at it
again the next morning. You might be surprised by what you see when you look at your design with a fresh set of eyes.
2. Shop around for suppliers and printers
Just like you should not rush through the design process, you also should not rush to choose a supplier for your flyer materials. Make sure you have a
good design program if you are designing the flyers on your own computer.
Most importantly, make sure you have a very good, reputable commercial printer to work with. Shop around until you find a printer that has a great
deal of experience and an impeccable reputation. And, of course, price is important as well. That is not to say that you should choose the cheapest
printer. But when you locate a few printers that you feel comfortable with, you can then use price as the determining factor.
3. Proofread and revise
You cannot do this step correctly unless you first follow tip #1, which is to take enough time to make a proper design. If you do that, then you should
utilize that time. After you sleep on your design for a night and look at it again in the morning, be willing to change it. In fact, you should revise your
flyer design at least once.
And, most importantly, proofread your design over and over again. If you can, have one or two other people proofread it as well. There may be some
simple mistakes, such as typos, within your design that you cannot see because you are too close to the project. A fresh pair of eyes can pick them
out for you.
