Even with the advent of SEO and online marketing, flyer advertising remains one of the most effective promotional materials. There is an art to creating an effective flyer which may be lost on many business owners. If you have never had this kind of design work before, working with an effective but cheap flyer printing company can help make things a lot easier. It is still necessary to take care of the design elements, usually by collaborating with the printing company’s design team. There are a few essential areas to consider, getting you on the right track to creating the ultimate advertising campaign.

Eye-Catching Design 

This point may seem obvious but there is more than meets the eye. The flyer needs to have an effective focal point that draws the eye to the poster. This focal point may be text or lettering, graphic, image or headline. The point is there needs to be one aspect of the flyer that truly stands out from the rest of the information. Enter the most important information close to the focal point so the viewer can get actual information at first glance. 

Use Imagery

Closely related to the first point is to use some sort of imagery on your flyer icons, photographs and shapes work well for this purpose. You may also consider a hand-drawn photography or other custom illustration to make your flyer unique. Make sure that the image is relevant to the message. The idea here is so the viewer immediately has a theme in mind before reading any of the information on the flyer. 

Good Fonts

Imagery is important but it’s not a stand alone feature on a flyer. Topography helps to send the message home and a good font can help you do that. The font you choose entirely depends on the audience, context and purpose of the flyer. The topography creates the mood and brings together the look of the flyer so don’t be afraid ask for help from your flyer printing UK company in case you can’t decide which font to use.  The main idea is that the font complements all the other aspects of the flyer. 


A splash of colour is one of the quickest and easiest ways to draw attention to your flyer. Keep in mind that different colours spark evoke different emotions in the viewer so keep this in mind. For an exciting, energetic or warm mood, choose orange or red. If your intention is more nature oriented or conservative, cool colours such as green and blue are very effective. 


Finally, balance is important so that these different elements don’t look crowded on the flyer. Figure out what is the most crucial information you need to deliver and stick to it. Blank or white spaces are also great for creating balance. A good printing company should help you create the right look by balancing the various elements. 

These are just a few ideas to help you create the perfect flyer. More importantly, choose the right printer because the quality of your flyers depends on how it is done. Use the same printer for other advertising including cheap brochure printing to keep a sense of continuity and consistency throughout your advertising campaign.
