Print Cheap Flyers for Effective Promotion
Flyer printing is one of the oldest forms of print communication and remains one of the most popular. When it comes to promoting events, marketing products and services or even campaigning for office, cheap flyers help communicate your message to a wide audience for just pennies a piece.
If you want to get your flyers printed cheap but have hesitation about ordering printing online, you are not alone. With such a wide variance
in prices it's easy to be skeptical of anyone offering cheap flyer printing, especially when you can't see their quality in person.

companies to choose from now. Who has the cheapest flyers?

you'll find in your neighborhood or other online print services.

Tips for Ensuring the Best Quality Flyer Printing
- Design in CMYK
This is the color profile most printers use. Computer screens use RGB by default. While some images print slightly different if converted to CMYK before printing, this is the safest way to anticipate and plan around any color shifting.
- Resolution should be 300 DPI/PPI (dots/pixels per inch)
This is the minimum recommendation for crisp, clear images that aren't blurry or pixelated. Don't forget to check imported photos!
- Decide if you need bleed printing before beginning the design.
Without bleeds, there will be a 1/4" white margin around the edge. Leaving a margin helps keep the flyers cheap, but some designs just don't look as good without printing to the edge.
- Order a Printed Proof if color accuracy is crucial.
Computer monitors cannot display all the colors that our printers reproduce, and your individual screen settings may affect the accuracy as well.
Ordering a printed proof ensures you'll know exactly how your flyer printing will turn out before committing to the whole job.
Why should I promote with cheap flyers?
If you're promoting a business, service or event that has broad appeal, you can print cheap flyers to maximize your impact while minimizing your marketing costs. Most people will know within a few seconds whether they're interested, so it doesn't always make sense to spend extra money on fancy paper, heavy cardstock or other luxury options.
For those times when cheap flyers will suffice, stick with the 20/50# Bond or 24/60# Text Smooth papers (available in white and colors).
What is collating?
If you are ordering more than 1 original (or 2 if double sided) you'll need to decide if you want your printing collated. Collating refers to the order in which sheets are sequenced. If you're ordering 5 different flyers for different events, for example, you'll want to keep those separate by choosing "Not Collated." If the pages need to read in sequence, choose "Collated."
What Does Collate Mean?
How do you count pages for double sided flyers?
When printing double sided, each side counts as its own page. So 1 double sided sheet is 2 pages.
So the "# of Pages in File" will always be the same whether single or double sided. When you choose double sided on the order form this will automatically recalculate the difference for the cost of paper, but the number of pages is not affected.
I have multiple flyers. Can I order them together?
Yes you can -- as long as you want the same quantity and the same type of paper. Otherwise, they will have to be separate cart items.
- Enter the total number of pages (1 per flyer if single sided, 2 if double sided).
- Enter the total number of copies you want of each flyer.
- Choose "Collated: NOT Collated, each page in separate stacks."
Should I upgrade my paper type?
While getting the message out en masse is your goal, this doesn't necessarily mean you have to go with the cheapest flyers available. In fact, depending on what you're promoting you may want to choose a high-quality paper anyway. If your flyer uses a lot of photos or colorful graphics to get the message across, we recommend upgrading your paper.
For lots of graphics and photos, we recommend the 32/80# Text Gloss or 100# Text Gloss. Both have a semigloss finish similar to magazine paper and a heavy weight and thickness which conveys pure prestige.
For a good midgrade paper that costs less and still looks and feels professional, we recommend the 28/70# Text Smooth. This letterhead-grade paper has a brilliant, smooth finish which captures photos and graphics beautifully, making it a very popular choice for printing business flyers.
What can I do to make my flyer stand out?
Your flyers are always competing for someone's attention. Sometimes that calls for something special. Give your flyers a shot in the spotlight with these upgrades:
- Bleeds (Printing to the Edge)
By default, flyers print with a .25" blank margin around the edges. But some flyers, especially ones with photos and graphics, look much better printed to the edge of the page. This is called a Bleed. While there is a little more cost involved because of the extra cutting, some flyers just aren't quite complete without it.
- Metallics and Linens
While your printed content can speak volumes, the paper you print on speaks another language all together. Check out our options for Linen paper (available in text weight and cardstock). Or if the medium suits your message, electrify your flyer printing with our 100# Cover Metallic paper. These heavy cardstocks have a metallic coating that is impossible to forget.
- High-Gloss C1S
Our regular gloss papers have a semigloss finish, which is similar to a magazine page. If you want a shinier gloss more like photo paper, try printing flyers on our 12-pt Cover High-Gloss C1S. This is a heavy cardstock which is "Coated 1 Side" (C1S), meaning you can still write on the backside.
