There are a variety of methods you can use to design a flyer.  It may be helpful to first create a layout or template on standard 8.5”x11” printer paper.  It is most important to make a list of the information that your viewers need to know—this may include dates, times, and addresses for your event, etc.  You’ll want to present this information in a brief but bold style, such as by using bullet points.  Consider adding some extra details about your event or embellishments like clip art to make your flyer unique and eye-catching.  There are really no limits when designing a flyer, but make sure that your most important information is clearly displayed on the page and visible from a distance.

Once you have an idea of what you want to include in your flyer, the next step is choosing a method to help you make it.  If you just want to make a standard 8.5”x11” size flyer with text, you can use a word processing program to write your text and print out your flyers in minutes.  Geographics.com  also features free downloadable templates with a pre-made layout and suggested wording—they are an excellent resource for making holiday and themed designs.  If you prefer a hands-on design experience, Geographics.com’s free design program, iClicknPrint, offers a variety of fonts, colors, layouts, suggested wording, clip art and creative design tools to help you make a reusable flyer template.
