Flyers often serve the same purpose as pamphlets but on a smaller scale. Because they are printed on a single sheet, they are simpler to produce than the multipage pamphlet. Flyers can be presented flat or folded, depending on your needs. In addition to being a simple way to provide technical information or instructions, flyers can also be used to make announcements.
To make a flyer:
1) Decide what you are going to say and how you are going to say it.
2) Determine the size and format of the flyer.
3) Make a dummy if you are planning a folded presentation. Make a rough sketch of the layout on the dummy.
4) Type or write the copy to fit the page size.
5) Develop any visual elements - drawings, diagrams, charts, etc. - that you are going to include.
6) Paste the copy and artwork in position on a sample layout.
7) Follow the layout to cut the stencil.
8) Mimeograph the desired number of copies. Fold if and as required.
