Posters and flyers

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Content and design. Posters and flyers are likely to be most useful to promote particular events, meetings and opportunities to get involved. Make them eye-catching and visual to attract attention, rather than trying to include lots of text and information – you can always reference links to where people can find out more.

Delivery. Recruiting volunteers to hand deliver posters and flyers will save you money on postage.

Where to distribute them. Displaying posters and flyers in popular areas with a high footfall or in places where like-minded and potentially interested people will see them will be most worthwhile. This could include busy streets, community centres, university buildings, churches, theatres, pubs, music venues, community noticeboards or independent shops specialising in ethical or local products. Make sure you get permission where necessary.
