Be Careful with Fonts

Generally speaking, you will only want to use two different fonts at most on your flyer. If you are looking to break down your content in a way that will stand out, use font weight to parse the information in an aesthetically pleasing way. This can be done through the use of bolder or lighter font weights that can add depth. Another great method is to incorporate a little bit of colour or italics to draw the eyes of the reader into a specific part of your message.

 

Create Contrast in Your Flyer

A sure-fire way to grab the reader's attention with your flyer is to use colour to create contrast. A perfect example of this would be to overlay some light text onto a dark background. This will make your text pop out from the paper and grab your reader’s attention instantly.

 

Balance Your Flyer Text

One of the biggest mistakes when designing a flyer stems from poor text placement. There are many ways this takes shape; from accidentally making your text look askew, adding too much information that will clutter the page, or even too little information that will make it look sparse. Try to avoid making things look too busy or quiet on the flyer by ensuring there is enough room for the text to ‘breathe’.

 

Consider Using a Border

 

A great way to frame your content and use up some potential white space is to implement a border. These come in a variety of styles and can really improve a flyer that is lacking in some areas.
