There are almost countless types of events—from formal to casual, big or small, and social to business events. If you’re planning one of these events and you need to invite a lot of guests, giving out heavy stock invitation cards can be impractical and will cost you a lot of money. You may also see flyer designs.
To avoid this, you can give out flyers instead of heavy stock paper invitations. Flyers are pieces of paper which are originally used for marketing products but are now used to advertise events and serve as invitations which use only a single page. They are great when a wide distribution is needed as they are usually posted or distributed in a public place, handed out to individuals, or sent through the mail.

Types of Events That Can Use Flyers
As mentioned, flyers can be used to inform people about events as well as invite them to come and join you with the celebration. Although an elegant and sophisticated invitation cards are necessary for some events like weddings, flyers can be used in most of the following events:
- Corporate events. These events are usually formal gatherings which are organized by a company or organization to celebrate achievements and to boost employee and member morale. Examples of these events are corporate dinners and annual company parties where flyers can be posted on bulletin boards or given out around the office to inform everyone about the event.
- Business functions. Business-related events include an open house for a new office or store, a corporate management seminar or training, a charity fund-raiser or sales extravaganza, and other business-oriented gatherings. Depending on how they are structured, flyers can be given out to expected attendees and guests for such meetings.
- School events. School events include foundation days, batch reunions, family day, sports day, recitals, plays, and other events held at the school. These events are usually held to showcase what their students’ learned in the institution, therefore, giving out flyers to invite their parents and guardians to share their children’s achievements is one way to do it.
- Birthday parties. Whether it’s your child’s first birthday or a milestone party for your patriarchs or matriarchs, a Birthday Party Flyer can be given out instead of invitation cards to let acquaintances, close friends, and family members join the celebration and give their birthday wishes to the celebrant as he or she comes into a certain age or stage in life.
- Social events. When speaking of social events, we think of formal gatherings, such as catered parties and black-tie dinners. However, they can also be casual affairs, such as a tea parties or a barbecues. Intimate parties such as bridal showers and holiday celebrations can also be considered as such. Using flyers for these events can be cost effective.
- Concerts and exhibitions. Flyers can also be used in events such as gallery openings and art exhibitions or music concerts and shows to invite friends and family members as well as attract audiences like art enthusiast, music fans, and concert goers to these events. Music Party Flyers, together with posters can be posted and distributed days before the event.

- Guests. Most of the time, event organizers invite guests speakers or presenters to enhance the content of your event. These guests can be prominent individuals or celebrities who can relate their successes with your event’s objectives and share them with your guests.
- Performers. Aside from guest speakers, you can also list entertainers such as singers, dancers or DJs to perform before or after the content of your event. This is to provide your guests some down time where they can enjoy themselves with your other guests.
