Leaflet printing – how to create stand out designs

Bring your Leaflet and Flyer printing to the next level in 2021.

When it comes to affordable and effective marketing, you can’t beat the simplicity of a printed Leaflet. Mind you, we’re not talking about just any Leaflets, we’re talking about Leaflets with papers and finishes so stunning that they’ll leave a lasting effect on your customers.

Read on to discover how to create the perfect Leaflet designs for your business.

Go classy with a Foil finish

Do you remember the first time you opened a gourmet piece of chocolate? Chances are the wrapper was made of Foil. It oozes class.

Adding a Foil finish to your printed Leaflets has the same effect. Print your company’s logo in Foil to create a focal point or decorate the edges with a beautiful geometric design to add a unique visual aspect. At, we offer Foiling in a variety of colours including red, blue, gold, silver, rose gold and even copper. If you can’t wait to get started, click below.

Create drama with White Ink

Adding a bit of drama to your Leaflet and Flyer printing can really give your marketing an edge. This is one of the reasons why White Ink is such a popular choice with our retail customers.

Created by building up layer upon layer of our specially formulated ink, this finish gives a crisp whiteness that just can’t be beaten. This finish can take even the simplest of ideas and give it a bold and unique edge. Give it a go!

Unique effects with Laser and Die Cutting

Who said Flyers have to be square? If you’ve got a unique shape in mind, then Laser Cutting and Die Cutting are ideal print solutions.

These techniques give your Flyer a hand-cut look which allows you to really get creative with your design. A baker for example could create a Die-Cut Flyer shaped like a cupcake, or a florist may choose to cut out beautiful floral shapes within their design with Laser Cutting. The possibilities really are endless, and the only limit is your imagination…

‘All that glitters’ with Spot UV

For the perfect glossy finish for your Leaflets and Flyers, choose Spot UV.

Created by placing varnish onto your print and then hardening it with a UV lamp, this finish adds a unique shine to parts of your design that will truly wow when it catches the light. It’s especially dramatic on a matte or a dark-coloured background and doesn’t have the telltale glare of other glossy finishes.

Get fresh with folds

Special Finishes aren’t the only way to add a little oomph to your designs. Folded Leaflets have a very distinct look compared to your standard A5 prints and are perfect if you’ve got more to say. Whether you choose a classic half fold, a Z fold or the ever-popular gate fold, there are so many ways to get creative and keep your customers staring.

You can unroll a hidden message, open up to reveal a large spread of content or let the story of your brand unfold on each individual side. And if you can’t find the fold you’re looking for, chat to our Bespoke team who will be more than happy to bring your printed vision to life.
