6 Steps to Make a Newspaper Flyer

Step 1: Research about flyers

Before you even start making your own flyers, it’s always best to actually know about the material you’re making in order to really do the job right. For one thing, you should be familiar with the different types of flyers and its purposes, as well as the different flyer sizes.

Step 2: Familiarize the common newspaper layout

Aside from researching about flyers, you should also familiarize the layout of common newspapers. Since you’re discouraged from copying it, you just need to learn what elements should or can be included and how to arrange them on the layout. Also, you can compare between colored and achromatic newspapers and decide which one looks better.

When downloading a template, make sure it’s in a format that’s compatible with your editing tool—choose a flyer template in PSD if you’re editing using Adobe Photoshop.

Step 4: Add the flyer’s content

After customizing the design of the flyer template, you can then move on to adding the flyer’s content. Here, you can write all the details needed to convey your message to every reader who gets their hands on your flyer. Also, make sure to follow the hierarchy of content to make your flyer easier to read.

Step 5: Proofread for any error

With advertising flyers, people should read as much information from it as possible and this can only be possible if there aren’t any errors on the content. This is why it is very important to proofread the content while or right after adding it, to ensure that your flyers are indeed worth reading.

Step 6: Print your flyers

After proofreading the content, you can finally start printing copies of your flyer. If you’re planning to print only a few copies, you can always do it yourself but if you’re printing by bulk, you probably should get it printed professionally. For the latter, the service charge actually drops the more copies are printed.
