What’s the difference between flyers and leaflets?


Print flyers tend to be distributed by hand, or placed in areas where people can take a copy. Flyer messages are more like “hooks” – a quick advertising message to encourage the reader to take action. Promotional flyers can be printed on a variety of papers and boards. The heavier the material, the more like ‘quality’ your printed flyer will feel. Have a think about your target market – if your clients are likely to spend lots of money with you, then invest in a really good quality printed board. 

Dare to be different; would a shaped flyer help you stand out from the crowd? If so, for a little more investment, have your flyer cut to shape. We use a hot air balloon graphic as part of our marketing so we have a batch of promotional flyers cut out to a balloon shape – it’s a great talking point and certainly makes the mailer more memorable.


Print leaflets are folded (or sometimes called “creased leaflets”) and contain informative messages. Leaflets are designed to be retained for future reference, like a price list for example. Leaflets can be enclosed in an envelope, maybe with an accompanying printed letter.

Dare to be different. The way a leaflet is folded can achieve some really interesting effects. DL sized tri-fold leaflets (110 x 220mm) are popular but why not retain the tri-fold, but consider a different size; an A5 or a square size perhaps?  Also, consider the orientation of the leaflet – simply rotating the leaflet can create a real eye-catching printed piece.


Flyer and leaflet printing options

We can fold printed leaflets in a multitude of ways. This diagram demonstrates just some of the options:

Printer mailer leaflets

Mailers can be more imaginative and creative. They tend to be printed onto a heavyweight board and posted directly to a database without being enclosed in an envelope.

The term,’ one-piece mailer’ refers to a folded leaflet, which has been printed with the recipients’ name, address and postage licence. To secure the leaflet so it goes through postage route without damage, the opening is sealed with moistening gum or a clear sticker.

Hear from our happy leaflet and flyer customers

“I wanted to drop you a note to say a HUGE thank you for my leaflets, they look absolutely brilliant. Everything you’ve done for me, in such a short turnaround has been brilliant, and am now kicking myself as to why I didn’t come straight to you in the first place! I’ve had great feedback on everything so far, and I’m in no doubt that the design and print work will go a long way to promoting the business for me!”
Adam from EHN

  1. Hi, do you print own designs? If so how much would it cost me to print an A5 High Gloss paper leaflet on both sides? For about 200 copies? How long does it take to have them ready?
    Thanks please reply as soon as you can.
