Flyer Printing FAQs

Find out more about our flyer printing through the questions and answers below.

What is the usual size for an effective flyer?

The most common sizes are A6, DL, A5 and A4.

Are flyers and brochures the same?

Not exactly. Both flyers and brochures are used as marketing and information tools, but they have slightly different characteristics. A flyer is usually a single, unfolded printed sheet. Brochures, on the other hand, usually contain folds that create multiple panels or pages of information. Brochures can also be created from multiple sheets bound together. To find out more about our brochure printing services, you can go over to our Brochure Printing page, or check out the Brochure Printing FAQ.

Can I send you documents created in Word or PowerPoint?

Yes, absolutely. For a small fee we will input this information into a proper Design program for printing.

Am I allowed to print on both sides for flyers?


Please explain more about 'trims' and 'bleed'.

The 'trim size' is the final dimension that your printing job will be cut to. However, an additional 3mm 'bleed' is required wherever design elements touch the edge of your 'trim' dimension. This is to give a safety margin during the post production trimming of your project, to ensure that your 'bleed' elements remain touching the 'trim' edge without any white, unprinted gaps between the 'bleed' element and the 'trim' edge. You can read more about this on our Print Helpdesk page.

Can I choose a paper stock for the flyer?

Our customers have access to our extensive range of economy, premium and specialty papers. Our Account Managers will advise you on the best selection of paper types and weights for flyers.
