Flyers, Inserts, leaflets and mailers
If the design, content and message are done well, then flyer printing, leaflet printing and mailers can really enhance your marketing mix – they are a very cost effective way to promote your business.
What’s the difference?
Flyers tend to be distributed by hand, or placed in areas where people can take a copy. Their messages are more like “hooks” – a quick advertising message to encourage the reader to take action. Flyers can be printed on a variety of papers and boards. The heavier the material, the more like quality it’ll 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.
Leaflets usually have a fold in them and contain informative messages. They are designed to be retained for future reference like a price list for example. Leaflets are often enclosed in an envelope 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 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 by rotating the leaflet can create a really eye catching printed piece.
We can fold printed leaflets in a multitude of ways. This diagram should demonstrate just some of the options:
Mailers can be more imaginative and creative. They tend to be printed onto heavyweight board and posted direct 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 moisten gum or a clear sticker.
