Flyer Design Templates

Flyers can be a great way to advertise your business. Do them right and you'll get great coverage of your business or event around the local area.

Flyers come in pretty handy when you want to advertise your business or some event, and don't have a lot of money to spare. They can be made at minimal cost (lesser if you do them yourself), and are a pretty effective advertising medium. People don't mind flyers, as they are an unobtrusive form of advertising, which a person can view at leisure.

Flyer Design Ideas

Now, you could always hire some guy to make your flyer, but then you will find yourself ruing the lost opportunity of you yourself giving the flyer your own personal touch. So, if you want to make your own flyer, you can easily find some great websites across the Internet, that will give you free templates perfectly suited for your use. The websites generally have a standard template and you will have to edit the content, so that the flyer will say what you want it to say.

The second option is turn into a designer yourself! Take a couple of well recommended software, like CorelDRAW, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe PageMaker, and let your creativity guide you! These software are well suited for designing flyers, and will help you create wonderful designs. Then you can also type in the content in a font of your choice. If you're not really a computer design aficionado, then you can design your advertising flyers on simple software like PowerPoint, Word, or Paint. Making flyers on these software is a lot easier and they too look pretty good.

Content of the Flyer

The basic things you need to include in the flyer are who you are, i.e., the name of the company; what services you provide, and how a prospective customer can contact you. The name of your company comes on top of the flyer, followed by an introduction of what your business does. A very important segment of the flyer design template is the price you charge for your goods/services. You can probably quote some of the better reviews given by existing customers about the company, so that it gives more weight to your flyer design. And then the last section will give your company's contact number, the name of the person who a prospective customer should talk to, an email address, a website (if any), and a customer service number should the need for it arise!

Sample Template

The flyer design template generally goes like this. You can insert your content in the order given in the template.

[Name of the Company]

[Services Provided]



[Contact e-mail]



[Name and designation of owner/CEO]

So, whether it is a babysitting flyer that you are looking for or an advertising flyer, you now have the basic idea of how to go about it!
