The most common flyer size is 8.5 x 11 in, which is the size of a standard piece of paper. Larger flyers can be 11 x 17 and smaller flyers 5.5 x 8.5 in. How you plan to spread the word will determine the size.

Effective flyers have a few things:

  • A catchy headline
  • A clear message
  • Appropriate typography
  • Visual hierarchy
  • White space and images
  • A call-to-action

Above all, design with your target group in mind. You want the right people to see your ad and spread the word, so create it for them.

Make sure you include your brand colors and logo, eye catching images and illustrations, an attention-grabbing title, and just enough text to get your point across. Add contact information like your website, email and phone number and important details like the date and time of your event.
