How to Print Folded Flyers Online

Folded flyers are an effective advertising option that can be printed in extremely large quantities for relatively little money. And unlike digital advertising and radio or TV ads, folded flyers are physical. Once a digital campaign is done or the last contracted ad runs on your local station, that’s it. You receive no more value from them. Foldable flyers, by contrast, are always ready to hand to a new potential customer.

Introduction to Print Folded Flyers

If you’re unfamiliar with folded flyers, you can think of them as a type of brochure. They start out as standard, landscape-oriented 8.5″ x 11″ sheets (other sizes are available, though they are less common) that are then folded into thirds. This allows the flyers to contain plenty of info about a product or service without taking up too much shelf space.

Benefits of Folded Flyers for Marketing

Folded flyers or folded leaflets are inexpensive to produce, easy to carry and provide a simple way to communicate a lot of information to a potential client or customer. There’s plenty of space for attractive graphics, too. And because they don’t have a shelf life, you can print up a large batch and distribute them at your leisure. 

Tips for Designing Your Print Folded Flyer

To convince people to pay attention to the inside of your folded flyers, the flyers must look compelling on the outside. If you’re not sure how to make that happen, that’s OK. Print Bind Ship will help with your specialized printing needs. Check out these tips below for designing an eye-catching flyer.

Choose an On-Brand Design

Every product needs consistent branding — even folded flyers. If you own a brewery, your color scheme, fonts, graphics, wording and other content will be drastically different from that of a daycare. Your flyers should reflect who you intend to target.

Consider Your Print Folded Template

Folded leaflet printing requires precision to look good. When relying on Print Bind Ship’s designers, you can be certain that the information you want to convey flows seamlessly across each fold. When handling the design in-house, however, you may want to download a template to avoid running into issues with text or graphics placement.

Choose High-Quality Paper

The type of paper you use is another important consideration when designing a flyer, as it will convey the amount of thought and care you put into the printing. A high-quality paper can offer the subtle but essential impression that the flyer is worth reading. It will also last longer and hold images better.

Include Critical Information

All key information, including your logo, contact details, website, social media and what you want to advertise, needs to be on the flyer. The recipient should get a clear idea of what your business is and how to engage with it.

Highlight Important Content

The most important information should be instantly noticeable. Highlighting words, using large lettering, altering the color and changing up the font all help to attract the eye.
