Virtually all businesses need some form of advertising. Creating a flyer for an auto repair shop to advertise your services and products can be a low-cost marketing tactic to gain new business for your shop. You can create your flyer in a basic program like Paint which typically is available to most individuals who use a PC as it is an application of Microsoft Windows.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Think about the aesthetic look and the image you want for your flyer. For example, if you have a shop that emphasises a family business approach and the connection your business has with your community. then including photos of your family on your flyer with an appropriate tag line can make potential customers feel comfortable using your service. On the other hand, you may want to draw attention to the more modern equipment you have in comparison to your competition. Sketch out a basic layout on paper so you'll have a guide to follow as you create your flyer.

  2. 2

    Focus on your auto repair shop's speciality services. Use clipart to include several graphics that relate to these services. That gives the reader a quick visual hit about your shop's key services, without them even needed to read the words. If you offer state-approved vehicle inspections, use a graphic of a car being checked for one the inspection points, such as checking tire tread, headlights or emissions.

  3. 3

    Begin creating your flyer in Paint by opening the program. To open Paint go to “Start” then “All Programs” then scroll to “Accessories” and then finally click on “Paint.” You will see that you have an untitled document which you should now name and save. Next, set the dimensions of your flyer to match the standard flyer size setting for printing.

  4. 4

    Select the tools in the Tools section you need to develop you flyer. The “A” tool allows you to place text content on your flyer. Choose a font style that fits the look you are trying to achieve. It is important to select a font type that is fairly easy to read. There are also “Shape” tools that can allow you to place both text and graphics in a box, for instance, or to create a border around sections.

  5. 5

    Save your final design for your auto repair shop flyer as a high resolution JPEG. Next you will need to select a printer or, alternately, you can print your flyers yourself. If you intend to do your own printing you will need to purchase printer flyer paper and enough ink to accomplish your print job size. You may also opt to have your flyers printed professionally by a print shop or an office supply store that offers this service such as Staples.

  6. 6

    Include your auto repair shop's name, address and phone number on the flyer. If you offer emergency service, such as 24-hour towing, include an emergency phone number to be used after hours.
