Flyers and ads can be created in all shapes and sizes. When choosing a flyer size, consider print costs, visibility, and your method of distribution. If you are printing in a magazine or newspaper, you will probably need to adjust your flyer or ad size to the print requirements of the publication. For stand alone flyers, designing your flyer two or four to a page makes for easy, fast, and cost effective printing.
Half-Page Flyers – 2-up on 8.5×11 Sheet
This example shows a half page flyer template placed 2-up on an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of paper, effectively making each flyers final size 8.5 x 5.5″.
Quarter-Page Flyers – 4-up on 8.5×11 Sheet
This example shows a quarter page flyer template placed 4-up on a page. After cutting the document into four flyers, the size of each piece will be 4.25 x 5.5″.
When printing on an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of paper, you must leave some margin for the printer. The above examples show that a white margin surrounds the design. If your printer supports borderless printing or you are sending out your design to a professional printer, you may want to add bleed or cut your design down to the desired size.
