Flyers can be a great way to get the word out but it’s important to make sure your flyers get noticed.

Organize your flyer: If the page is all text, a reader may give up before they even get to the important part. Make sure important information is separated with borders or boxes.

Write a short headline that grabs attention: Make your headline short, simple and BIG.

Proofread: Nothing will make a reader turn away from your flyer faster than a lot of typos.

Keep it simple: It’s important that your flyer gets people interested enough to show up to get more details. You don’t have to give every detail. The simpler the flyer is, the more likely people are to be genuinely interested in what you have to say.

Avoid clutter: Having "white space" around your headlines and images can make them stand out better.

Provide the Important Stuff: Don’t forget to include an address, contact person, date and time.
