It’s recommended that you:
· Keep your text to a minimum
Flyers are meant to be easy to absorb, so keep your text clear and concise – it shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes to read everything on your flyer. Try to have no more than 250 words on your flyer, and even less for A5 and smaller.
· Use headings
Keep your design simple – you’ll probably need one big header to summarise the entire flyer, then you could use smaller headings to direct your reader’s attention to the next important piece of information. This helps create a hierarchy of information in your design and makes it easier to read.
· Folded, double-sided designs
If you opt for a folded, double-sided leaflet, which is a good option for presentations or specifically targeted audiences, they’ll enable you to have more space to explain what your business is all about.
This double-sided extra space will make it easier for you to organise your information into sections so that your potential customers can easily find what they’re looking for.
As well as being useful informative handouts, they’re perfect for displaying on reception desks or in front of popular shops, as a form of free advertising in areas with high traffic, which are busy and crowded with potential customers.
· Stick to your brand colours
Having too many colours can be distracting for your reader so it’s recommended that you choose two or three of your business’ brand colours that complement each other and make your message easy to read.

How to choose a paper stock for your leaflet printing
There’s so much choice when it comes to choosing what type of paper to use and what finish to opt for when it comes to leaflet or flyer printing – it can literally be overwhelming.
But it’s important you get it right – because as soon as your potential customer or client handles your flyers and leaflets, they’ll know you mean business, with whatever choice of paper type you’ve decided on.
The kind of finish you decide on proves your business is top-quality too…
Types of Paper
Value 150gsm Silk is great as a cheap flyer printing option for businesses that don’t want to scrimp on quality. It feels like a thin takeaway menu, or a weekly magazine – as it’s a lightweight paper but that’s still smooth and silky. It’s perfect for bulk flyer printing on a budget, great for takeaway menus, large quantity handouts for shows and exhibitions, club and events advertising.
Classic 250gsm Silk- this is a good mid-weight paper that’s versatile and that can be used for a range of different things as it’s a thin card that stands up straight when you hold it up with a silky finish. It’s perfect for most marketing activities, which can include advertising flyers and magazine inserts.
Premium 350gsm Silk – this is a super thick stock which gives the impression of luxury and lasts a long time, especially if you add a protective, splash-proof layer of lamination. It’s also available with Spot UV on matt lamination.
It feels like a thick card, like a restaurant menu card or a business card, and is ideal for long-term marketing, such as quality menus or high-end business flyers for impressing your top clients.
Recycled 350gsm – now you can print environmentally-friendly flyers on 100% recycled card, which feels like a thick card.
Kraft 280gsm – actually gives your leaflets and flyers a hand-crafted, DIY look but which has a professionally printed finish.
They are made of earthy, textured card, like those brown recycled envelopes that you can get but they’re actually a bit thicker!
How to choose a paperweight
When you decide what type of luxury printed flyers and leaflets you want for your business’ advertising, it’s also a good idea to think about the type of paper weight and size.
There are various paper types and weights options for you to look at – obviously the heavier the weights, the costlier the service, but the quality is better…
• Budget: 130 gsm for glossy and matte
• Standard: 170 gsm for glossy and matte
• Premium: 250 gsm for glossy and matte, 270 gsm for recycled
• Premium plus: 400 gsm for glossy and matte
Once you’ve chosen your type and weight of paper, you mustn’t forget the finish, as it’s all these small details that can make all the difference to your business.
· A gloss finish is shiny and reflective and is perfect for photos and other images, especially if your design has lots of vibrant colours
· Whereas a matte finish has less of a glare for a smoother appearance and more contrast
· Recycled stock tends to a more natural feel, with lighter colours, and is made from 100% recycled materials.
