Want to create a leaflet, or is it really a pamphlet that you need?

Today we will define what a leaflet is. We'll explain what it is used for and what the difference is between a leaflet and a pamphlet. Then we'll show you how easy it is to create your very own leaflet using templates from Envato Elements.

What Is a Leaflet?

Simply put, a leaflet is a small flat or folded sheet with printed matter on one or both sides. But that's not all there is to a leaflet definition. Of course, you are wondering: what is the purpose of a leaflet?

Follow along with us over on our Envato Tuts+ YouTube channel:

What Is a Leaflet Used For?

Leaflets are used to disseminate information or to promote a product or service. They are often distributed in the form of handouts or newspaper inserts.

What Is the Difference Between a Leaflet and a Pamphlet?

It can be confusing sometimes when you think about the difference between leaflets and pamphlets because the terms are quite similar and are often used interchangeably. But there are some differences. The main points of distinction are the number of sheets used to create them, the quality, and the purpose.

A leaflet is made from a single sheet of paper, sometimes folded, whereas a pamphlet can also be made of several sheets. And while a leaflet tends to be made from cheaper, lower-quality paper, a pamphlet may use higher-quality stock.

And then there's the purpose. A leaflet is often used for advertising or general information about a business or organisation, whereas the purpose of a pamphlet is to inform or educate people about a particular subject. As you can see, the differences are quite subtle, but they do exist. So now you know the difference between a pamphlet and a leaflet!

How to Make a Leaflet

When you need to create a leaflet, the easiest and most cost-effective way is to use a professionally designed template. Leaflet templates provide you with an aesthetically appealing layout with placeholder text, images, and graphics. When you customise the template, the layout stays locked in place, and you replace the placeholders with your own content. Leaflet templates can be used repeatedly, so you only need to buy a template once.
