The Ultimate Flyer Maker for Your Next Event

By Melanie Doncas | Designer Tutorials

If you’re planning an event for the near future, there’s no doubt you need an attention-grabbing flyer to advertise all of its important details. After all, social media posts and emails can only go so far; a flyer, however, is just the thing to expand your audience and get some extra feet through the door.

Unless you have experience in graphic design (or a professional designer on-hand), you may be thinking that it’s impossible to create the event flyer of your dreams. Thankfully, this is where BeFunky’s Flyer Maker comes in handy. It’s filled with pre-designed event flyer templates that only need the smallest of tweaks to turn it into your own!

Step 2: Replace the Existing Images

You’ll want to swap out the flyer template’s existing images for ones representing the event you wish to market. To do this, click on any existing photo and an Image Properties panel appears. Click Replace, then select your desired photo from your computer. Repeat this process for every photo you wish to swap.

Step 3: Edit the Existing Text

Next, it’s time to edit the existing text on the template to reflect your event’s important details. Simply double-click on a text box and begin typing whatever you want it to say. When you click on a text box, a Text Properties toolbar also appears. From here, you can adjust elements such as the Font, Size, Text Color, Spacing, and more.

Step 5: Change the Template’s Background Color

If you want to change the background color of your entire template, navigate to Customize in the main menu on the left and select a color swatch of your choosing. Similarly, you can click on the first color swatch (the one with the dropdown arrow) to open the Color Chart, type in the color’s specific HEX Code, or use the Eye Dropper Tool.

Step 6: Save Your Event Flyer

Once you’re happy with your event flyer design, it’s time to save it. Click on Save at the top of the screen, then select your desired save location. We recommend saving your flyer as a PDF file in Print quality so it’s the highest quality possible for printing. Additionally, you should consider the Save as Project feature to save your flyer as an editable file that you can adjust in the future.
