Promotional Flyers
By Bobbie McCreary

A call to all who publish, distribute and post flyers advertising all the wonderful causes and things to do in our great town! MAKE TWO SIZES to fit the space available. There are approximately 85 locations for posting throughout the community...many are space limited.

Recently we seem to have evolved from letter-sized flyers (8 1/2 x 11 inch) to LARGE (11 x 17 inch)...The larger size provides the opportunity to create attractive and eye-catching flyers, but with one negative.

There is no longer room on many bulletin boards around town for all the flyers. The Library, in the center of town--and traditionally the place everyone goes to look for info, is the best example.

My recommendation is to print your flyers in two sizes and use good judgement for which venues will support the larger and which need to use the smaller. This way everyone has a chance to post their "good news." Thank you for considering the needs of others to share your space.
