What You'll Need

1. What Is a Bingo Flyer?

A bingo flyer is a piece of promotional material used to advertise an upcoming bingo event. It typically includes the event name, date, time, location, rules, and prizes that will be offered.

It is usually distributed through print or digital media such as email, social media, and websites. The flyer can also include images and graphics to make it more attractive to potential players. The purpose of a bingo flyer is to generate interest in the event and encourage people to attend.

Step 1

Create a new InDesign document, File > New > Document. Set the Width to 5 in and Height to 7 in. Margins should be 0.25 in on each side, with a 0.125 in Bleed.
