What You'll Be Creating

If you want to make a flyer, you don't need any super expensive software. You can easily make your own flyer online, using the Placeit flyer creator. It offers you many flyer templates that you can customize to your needs, so that you can design straight in your browser. Here I'll show you how to create a flyer in Placeit in a few easy steps.

Follow along with me over on our Envato Tuts+ YouTube Channel:

How to Make a Flyer

Step 1

Go to Placeit.net. The site welcomes you with hundreds of templates for logos and mockups, but today we're interested in making a flyer. So just go to Designs and find the Flyer Maker.

Step 2

If you have a specific theme in mind, you can type it here to narrow down your search. You can also just scroll through thousands of templates to see if something inspires you. I decided to give the Summer Party template a try—it looks very nice to me, and I can already see some potential for an interesting customization. Just click the template to open the editor.

Step 3

Each template has certain sections that you can edit and customize. This one allows you to change the text, add a colorful filter, add a frame to the main text, and add an image for the background. Let's start our creation by changing the background image. This template offers a lot of beautiful images, but if you want a fully personalized effect, you can always add your own custom image.

Click Custom Image and pick your own image. Make sure it has a high enough resolution.

Step 4

Give it a moment to load. After the image is processed, you can crop it to fit the format of the flyer.

You can also move the image to create a more interesting frame. When you're done, just click Crop and let the editor do the magic for you.

Step 6

As you can see, all the filters have been added to your image automatically. If you want, you can customize the effect by changing the available filters. Just click them to see which effect looks the best on your design. I decided to choose the last one, to add sunset colors to my flyer.

Step 7

The overall design looks good, so now it's time to add the information. All the text areas can be found on the left. You can change the text and adjust its font and color here.

Changing the text and font can affect the layout of the elements, so feel free to adjust it manually as you see fit. This template allows you to grab and resize most of its elements in a very straightforward way.

Step 8

Use this method to add all the relevant information to your flyer and to give it the intended look. There are many fonts to choose from, so test some of them to see which one works best for each element.

Step 9

On this template, there's a frame around the main text that you can adjust. I decided to remove it because the sun in the background already looks like a nice frame.

Step 10

Finally, you can change the colors of the text separately for each element. You can pick one of the sample colors, or click More to choose from all the shades you can imagine.
