Flyer printing – it’s not just about ink on paper. It is an invitation, an advertorial, an opportunity, an informational eye-catching, teasing, tempting powerful communication. And we can help bring yours to life.
Flyer printing has been making a name for itself as the king of communication since the 1800’s and shows no sign of giving up it’s crown! Versatile in shape, size and choice of papers, printed flyers are the go-to promotional product and universally great. No matter the size or nature of your business there is a flyer with your name on (literally!)
At A Local Printer our priority is to ensure that all our products come with a big tick in the eco-friendly printing box, a philosophy shared by many of our customers. Our flyer printing makes it a doddle to be seen to be green with our 100% recycled and kraft flyers printed with vegetable oil-based inks or the new generation of eco toners. So, what are you waiting for – jump in!
If you want the ultimate in eco-friendly printed flyers, or are looking to achieve that organic or retro pulp board look which is so popular at the moment, then our 100% Recycled Flyer range is for you. The uncoated finish delivers texture and character to your marketing print, and with a choice of 9 sizes available we cover all the common sizes and then some!
Our Silk and Gloss flyer printing range is one of the most popular products we sell, combining eco credentials with top quality and value for money. Gorgeously smooth to the touch, these 300gsm boards are enhanced by our neutral seal which protects the printed flyers and increases longevity. Super shiny gloss board makes a flyer with extra vavavoom while silk board is a tad more subtle.
Our eco printed kraft flyers are printed in full colour with vegetable oil based inks. They have a vintage charm that has them head and shoulders above the competition and makes for an eye-catching product. Printing on kraft works particularly well with simple, clean design set against the natural kraft background.
From 25 to 1000 our small order flyers are printed digitally on lovely silk art board, super trendy and tactile kraft board or on eco uncoated recycled board.
Choose from eight flat and folded sizes and make the most of our unique multiple sorts option available on this product.
If you want quality, folded/creased flyer printing on robust, thick card these are just the job. After printing these flyers are machine creased (not to be confused with the cheaper "scoring method") to ensure a perfect fold without cracking. Creased once or twice for the ideal mini brochure.
If we put everything we wanted to say about Flyer Printing on this page it would run on for several meters. So instead we have a great additional page that you can jump to which gives you more information about printed flyers and what makes us good at our job!

Choosing a Material for your Flyer: Recycled (Uncoated), Kraft, Silk or Gloss Board?
If you are investing in having some flyers printed it is worth knowing which paper you want as they all have different characteristics. One of the most common misconceptions is that a matt material is the same as an uncoated material; We are often asked for matt printing when the product actually wanted is an uncoated (recycled) flyer.
So, what is the difference between Uncoated, Matt, Silk and Gloss Flyers?
Put simply uncoated paper is exactly that - it has not been treated in any way and has had no additional finishing, or coating, applied to the surface. It is the best material for writing on with all types of instruments and has a tactile, pulpy feel. Its downside is that it is an absorbent material and can result in 'flatter' images if it is litho printed with wet inks.
Matt Art and Silk Art are often the same material, just to confuse things! It has a soft sheen or neutral finish that is good for visuals and has been treated to improve the brightness and soft feel of the paper. Gloss Art is a high shine material which provides for lots of contrast and images with impact.
What about Kraft Flyers?
Kraft paper and board also uncoated and an altogether different animal in that it is a strong brown colour which will affect your design. Think of it this way; If you wanted to paint your dark brown wall yellow it is not going to show up very well and you will still see the brown behind it. This is exactly the same with kraft, especially if it is printed litho with wet inks. Printing digitally will give you a much better result, but best to be aware of these little foibles in advance!
What flyer printing is best for me?
Opt for the uncoated recycled flyers if you want an organic or retro pulp board look for your product, or choose the silk or gloss coated art boards if you want your flyers to have a higher colour contrast and a smoother finish to the touch.
Kraft will give you the ultimate retro and organic style flyer. It is also tactile and pulpy, with a satisfying thickness to the touch.
