Grab your audience’s attention with well-designed digital and print flyers.
Flyers are a great way to attract customers and increase brand, event, or product visibility. Strong, eye-catching design goes a long way in communicating your message clearly and professionally. Both print and digital flyers are an effective way to promote offerings, and each has its advantages. Print flyers are a useful tool in spaces where people gather, like offices, events, and retail shops, and digital flyers can be easily distributed via social media, email, or your website.
Regardless of how you plan to use it, making a great flyer is a simple project that can make a big impact on your audience. Follow the step-by-step guidelines below to get started, and download our template to kick-start your creativity.

Creating on the go? Design your project on the web with Adobe Express.
Get started with a fresh file.
The first step is to open InDesign and create a new document. You can do this in a couple of ways:
- Click the Create New button on the left side of the page, or
- Select File at the top of the page, then New > Document
Lock in basic parameters.
InDesign will then open a window and prompt you to choose your flyer format and size. Along the top of the window you’ll find your format options — print, web, or mobile. Choose Print, and then Letter from the list of ready-made page sizes if you plan to print on standard 8.5x11 paper.
Preset details will also give you a few basic layout options:
- Select one page for a simple flyer.
- Select inches for the units.
- Make sure Facing Pages is unchecked.
- Choose Portrait or Landscape, depending on your creative needs.
- Click the Create button at the bottom of the window.
Your document is now set up and ready for design. Choose a file name and save it so you can come back to it later.
