Flyer Printing For Promotions

Bella Harris asked:

You have a business and you want to spread word about it quickly and easily. What type of advertising is cheap? Definitely not billboard, if that is what you have in mind. However, you could create flyers to advertise your business. They are easy to obtain these days, as there are so many printing companies available that offer great quality flyer printing services at an affordable price.

First of all, let us look at the meaning of the word ‘flyer’. A flyer is sometimes called a pamphlet. It is a single page printed advertising material that is used to promote an event, a product or a charity, practically anything that is suitable. There is no doubt that most night clubs these days take advantage of flyer printing to promote their business. After all, this is the easiest way to get the word out to the public.

Long ago, a flyer used to be produced by printing on a piece of paper, whatever we wanted to promote, regardless of it being colour or monochrome. The paper that was used was just plain paper. Today, you can get different types of flyers made from materials such as recycled silk paper, UV gloss paper and even pulp paper. Of course, these are the luxurious types of paper for advertising.

The cheapest flyer is the standard flyer. If you can afford to obtain better quality flyers, you can try the silk paper. This is slightly more expensive but the quality is better and more appealing to the public. Other than that, you can even try to laminate your flyers. This is expensive and you should only do this if you have a big budget, or you are trying to impress an important client.

Sizes matter as well when you are printing flyers. You must decide on the size you want. From A4 to A5, there is a size to fit your requirements. You can even obtain a flyer as small as a credit card, known as CC. It is just like a business card. A4 flyer printing would be big, but you can put more information and pictures on the flyer. If you have a tight budget, opt for a smaller size. So, decide on the size you want according to your budget.

Personally, I love to read a flyer that is made with high quality materials, but personal appeal is not enough to attract people to your business. You need to make sure that the content is interesting enough. Add in pictures, creative wording and, of course, excellent layout designs and they would definitely attract anyone.

You don’t have to worry about the design if you are not good at doing that. When you choose a printing company, select one that offers designers to help you out. With just a small add-on fee, you can let them take care of the design and the flyer printing. You just need to wait for them to deliver the finished product to you, so you can assign people to distribute them.

Usually people hand out flyers on the streets to the public, especially in populated areas that are heavy in foot traffic. Places like malls and street markets are the most popular places to distribute flyers. The only thing is that not everyone will take a flyer. Some will decline while others will ignore you completely.
