Marketing Tips

Small Flyers are one of the most popular tools for getting information about your products and services distributed. They are most commonly handed out or left in public establishments to encourage repeat business or make customers aware of related businesses or offers.

Standard Sizes

Our standard sizes, listed below, are the most popular in the industry:

  • 3.5" x 4.25"

  • 3.5" x 8.5"

  • 4.25" x 5.5"

  • 4.25" x 11"

  • 5.5" x 8.5"

Any Trim Size

You can order custom sizes by using the "Any Trim Size (Edit Below)" option in the pricing calculator. First select the standard size option which is larger in both dimensions (height and width) than your desired custom size. In the "Any Trim Size (Edit Below)" box on the pricing calculator (shown below), type in your desired dimensions. Please remember if you are ordering "Any Trim Size" for a product that is folded, "Any Trim Size" dimensions are for the product before it is folded.

Be mindful of the custom trim when submitting a file to prevent any part of your design from being trimmed away. It's extra important to look at a proof when ordering custom trim.

20# Uncoated White Smooth Text

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from nice, standard weight, uncoated photocopy paper, although it is somewhat smoother.

70# Uncoated White Smooth Text

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from business stationary or typical letterhead.

This paper has a quality feel, folds easily, and is a good choice when you don't want a slick and shiny finish.

80# Matte Text

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from business stationary or typical letterhead.

This paper has a quality feel, folds easily, and is a good choice when you don't want a slick and shiny finish. Although typical business letterhead is a good example for the weight and feel of this stock, we do not recommend printing your letterhead on digital press.

100# Gloss Text

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from the covers of many popular magazines like People and Time.

This paper strikes a balance between thickness and foldability, while the glossy finish on both sides gives your text a professional appearance.

100# Gloss Cover

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from standard business cards.

Stiffer than 100# Gloss Text, this glossy finish cover stock offers sharp folds and a sturdy product for a very professional result. This stock is coated on both sides.

100# Uncoated Cover

 

You may be familiar with this type of stock from thick index cards, though the finish is much higher quality.

A very versatile stock, the uncoated finish is good when you don't want a slick and shiny look, while the firm 100# stock folds precisely.

Standard weight, uncoated color bond paper. Choose your paper color preference at Step 2 of the ordering process. You have 3 paper color options: Blue,

2/2

 

Two colors on both sides of the sheet, including Pantone colors. This option can reproduce exact Pantone colors. A typical example of this is brochures with specific corporate or team colors.

Please note:
In order to reproduce Pantone colors, we will use ink of that specific color. Pantone colors in your file must be specified as the Pantone color you desire. Do not convert the Pantone color to CMYK. While many Pantone colors can be reproduced using blends of CMYK inks, this approach is only available when you order 4-Color Offset or Digital. This is because our 1 & 2 color presses have a maximum of two ink stations.

While many colors can be built as a blend of other colors (for example, red and yellow combined create orange), our 1 & 2 Color printing requires that your files specify that you want orange (Pantone #165) and not a mix of red and yellow.

We get rave reviews for our 1 & 2 Color printing. Following the guidelines above will make it easy for you to get what you want. If you don't know the Pantone color equivalent for the color you want, you can find a Pantone sample book at most art and design stores.

Shrinkwrap and Rubber Bands

 

Shrinkwrap is a thin, plastic wrapping designed to group the items you order into desired quantities. Additionally, it helps your order arrive in tip-top condition because it reduces rubbing during shipping. It is called "shrinkwrap" because after the plastic is placed around each bundle, it is shrunk with gentle heat for a better fit.

Orders can also be grouped using rubber bands.

Options:

  • 5 per package

  • 10 per package

  • 25 per package

  • 30 per package

  • 40 per package

  • 50 per package

  • 75 per package

  • 100 per package

Please note that if your order quantity and the number of pieces per package will result in more than 200 individually shrinkwrapped packages, your order may require an additional 1-2 days for fulfillment.

For other quantities, please submit a custom estimate.

1 & 2 Color Quantity

 

To see available quantities, click on the "Quantity" dropdown menu in the pricing calculator.

To request a custom estimate, click "Estimates" at the top of the page.

We typically print more than the quantity ordered. Because printing is a manufacturing process, the total finished quantity may vary. We usually ship a few more than you order, but sometimes quantities can vary +/- 5%. Standard industry procedure is to consider this range shipment in full.

Please Select Template Below:

PDF stands for Portable Document Format. This template can be imported into: InDesign, Quark Express, Illustrator, Corel Draw, and many other content creation programs.

File Preparation

 

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.

  2.  

  3. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.

  4.  

  5. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.)

  6.  

  7. Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

  8.  

  9. Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

  10.  

  11. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

File Orientation

Bleed and Safe Area

We require that you extend any images that run up to the trim line a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") past the trim line to create "bleed". Depending on what program you use to create your file, this may or may not change the total image area of your file. Programs like Photoshop that do not allow the creation of "bleed" or the addition of crop marks will require an image area that is 1/4" (0.25") larger than your desired final overall image area in both dimensions.

Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. If you choose to make less than this minimum clearance, we will NOT be responsible for items that are cut off in this area.

Proofs and File Check

 

We offer three proof options:

  1. Online PDF Proof: You will be sent a link to view your proof via email. Please keep in mind that this is only a proof for content and positioning; the color on your screen may vary from the color of your final product, depending on your monitor and viewing conditions.

  2.  

  3. Hard Copy Proof: The Hard Copy Proof can either be picked up on-site or shipped to you. Please keep in mind that this is a proof for content and positioning and is not printed on your actual job stock. Color may vary slightly when printed on the stock you ordered. When ordering a Hard Copy Proof, you will receive a complimentary Online PDF Proof, as well.

  4.  

  5. No Proof, Run As-Is: This option is for the industry professional who is certain their project is ready to hit the press and does not require the additional security of a proof.

File Check:

If our prepress department sees anything questionable with your file, we will contact you via email with our concerns. Should prepress email you, please note that your job is not considered fully submitted until you respond to this email. This should be factored into your turnaround time.File check does not apply to No Proof, Run As-Is. No Proof, Run As-Is jobs print from the exact file(s) you upload unless it is not possible to print because your supplied file does not match the specifications ordered.

How to check your Online PDF:
The black crop marks indicate the final trim size. The Red line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Score) The Green line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Perf). The Red Line (Solid) indicates the ( Cut or Trim ) line. The verbiage on the file, this will indicate the page position after folding.

If they note technical concerns with your file, they may email you with their concerns so you can upload a corrected file. If subsequent uploads still contain errors, you may be charged an additional prepress fee to review your file again.
