How to Create an Eye-Catching Leaflet or Flyer Design

Designing leaflets or flyers online is quick and easy, especially if you have your in-house design team or are happy to dabble in the creation yourself! If you haven’t, then don’t panic. Give one of our professional design team a shout, as we’re always happy to help.

You’ll find the design specifications listed for you to utilise on each of the different product sizes. There are a number of premium quality of free card designs online with blank design tool templates for you to use.

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 more minor headings to direct your reader’s attention to the following critical piece of information. This helps create a hierarchy of information in your design and makes it easier to read.

·      Folded, double-sided designs

Suppose you opt for a folded, double-sided leaflet, which is a good option for presentations or specifically targeted audiences. In that case, they’ll enable you to have more space to explain what your business is all about. This extra double-sided 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 helpful, informative handouts, they’re absolutely perfect for displaying on reception desks or in the 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 really compliment each other and which can 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 you choosing what type of paper to use, as well as 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 the paper type you’ve decided on, and the kind of finish you choose on proves your business is top-quality too…

Types of Paper

Value 150gsm Silk – this 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 an excellent 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 that 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 thick card, and is just like premium stock but has slightly less ink absorption, and is excellent for any business looking for an eco-friendly alternative to their standard advertising flyers.

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 are deciding what type of luxury printed flyer and leaflets you want for your business’ advertising, it’s also a good idea to think about the kind of paperweight, as well as 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.
