When you need flyers or announcements for an event or to advertise your business, the higher quality and more professional they are, the better received they will be. You can design your own flyer if you are comfortable with that, but having a flyer printing service make them for you is often easier and will result in better products for you to hand out.
When you are designing a flyer for your needs, you can make the flyer yourself, and there are some excellent software options that you can use or have a designer do the layout for you. Most print shops offer design help if you need it, and once the design is ready, the designer working in the shop can send the file directly to the flyer printing area of the business. This keeps all the design and print work in-house and ensures that the flyer design is optimized to work well with the printers that the business uses and the papers you select for the handouts. Some shops offer design services that are cheaper to use than the cost of the special software you would purchase to do the design yourself, and since you are not doing the work, these services can save you a significant amount of time.
Once the design phase is complete, flyer printing will often only take a couple of days, depending on the number of flyers you need. A small shop may have some limitations on the number of flyers they can print in a day, so check with the shop you are considering to ensure they can complete the project in the time frame required. Most flyer printing services offer many different paper types and colors to choose from, and if your flyer is being printed with single ink color, you can often put the flyer on just about any paper. Sometimes it is fun to mix and match the paper colors so that there are many variations of the flyer around, but check with the flyer printing service to see if there is an additional charge for that.
if you are going to hang your flyers up on poles and bulletin boards or place them in areas where durability may be an issue, you may want to talk to the flyer printing service about printing the flyers on heavy stock paper, like cardstock. Often this allows for larger prints with fewer issues, so the flyer printing service can print sign-sized flyers for you if you need them. Heavy stock is often not necessary for flyers that you are handing out to people in person, but for flyers that will hang outside or be displayed on a wall or in a window, the heavy print stock can be the way to go.

Hello, I'm Cass O'Connell. In an effort to maintain a decent sized customer base, I always send out flyers to new areas around my region. I pick the areas according to the demographic description provided by my state. I have a specific range of customers I want to attract. The flyers I use are printed by a professional company that offers a wide variety of paper and ink types. The flyers are also designed by that same entity. All of the artwork used on the flyers beautifully encapsulates the purpose of my company. I would like to share my experience with using printing services for my flyer needs. I will talk about the materials, tools and techniques used to print my flyers. Thank you.
