A6 flyers are typically used for promotional purposes, typically size 105mm x 148mm (4 inches by 6 inches). The size of A6 flyers allows the designer to include a great deal of information, while keeping the flyer small enough to be portable to its recipients. Many companies print A6 flyers in varying cardstock weights, colours and quantities. You can print these flyers yourself using free templates online. Because of the size of the flyers, you will be able to fit two A6 flyers per sheet on letter-size paper. The quality of the print job will depend on your printer, with higher quality printers, of course, producing the best flyers.
Download an A6 flyer template from your favourite template provider. Alternatively, a link to download an A6 flyer template has been included in the Resources section below. Once the template is downloaded, double-click to open it in your word processor. If you do not have a word processor, you can download Open Office, an open-source productivity suite compatible with Microsoft Office. Open Office is available free of charge from Sun Microsystems.
Design your flyer using one of the two flyers in the template. Once you have completed the design, copy and paste the design over the other A6 flyer in the template so that you now have two copies of the same flyer on one page.
Print a test page by clicking "File" and selecting "Print." Ensure that the correct printer is selected and then click "Okay." Examine the test page and make any changes needed before printing the batch.
Once you are ready to print your flyers, click "File" and then "Print" again. Determine how many flyers you would like to print, then divide that number by two to determine the number of pages that you will need. For instance, if you need 100 flyers, you will want to print 50 pages.
Enter the number of pages (not flyers) that you would like to print in the "Copies" text field. Click "Print" to begin printing. Once the flyers are printed, trim the flyers to size with the paper cutter, using the edges of the printed materials as a guide.
Make sure you have enough printer ink to complete the print job. Otherwise, you may waste ink on bad copies.
