Another great reason to design a flyer is to share a list of your business’s services. Hand these out in your office lobby or at networking events to give potential customers an idea of how you can help them.
Using a flyer background image like this flatlay is a great way to resonate with your audience by sharing a photo of your team hard at work.
If your business is hosting an event, putting together a flyer is a smart strategy for getting the word out. Make sure to include the event name, type, date, address and any entrance information attendees might need to know, like cost or dress code.
Furthermore, your flyer background image for event flyers should be a good representation of what people could expect at your event.
You don’t want to share a flyer with an image of people dancing to music for a quiet, more reserved event, right? Let’s go over a few examples of how images can work well for your event flyers.
This retro flyer template is perfect for promoting a rock concert. Replace the flyer background image with a high-quality photo of the band or artist that’s playing to really make the most out of your design. Print out your flyer or share it on social media to maximize your reach.
For a more calm, serene event, an outdoor flyer background image like this is the perfect way to entice your target audience. When choosing images to accompany your event flyers, you want to make sure the image appeals to the audience you’re trying to reach.
For example, a calm photo like this wouldn’t work to accompany a club flyer. The target audience for a club is looking for something wilder, like a party flyer background. However, this photo works perfectly for an outdoor kayaking trip.
If you’re looking for a flyer that will attract kids and families, it’s a good idea to go for something more colorful like this photo of a watercolor design.
You can include as much or as little information as you’d like. On a flyer like this with a smaller font, you’ll need to make sure you print it off in a large A4 size so your audience can easily read the fine print.
Just remember to download as a PNG file to make sure it’s a high-quality design and will retain that same quality when printed.
Flyers can be used for a variety of purposes, even simply for handing out to friends and family for a big birthday party or New Year’s event. However, this flyer template can also be customized to fit any business event. Simply edit the copy then get your free download to distribute.
This last event flyer background image example showcases a stunning view while teasing a weekend hike. Any outdoorsy person is going to see this and think, “Yes. I’m there.”
Which is exactly how you want someone to feel when they see your event flyer, right?
Another major use for flyers is for showcasing real estate. Commercial leases or residential properties can be shown off through handouts and flyers during open houses or even just around town.
Here are a few great ways to use a real estate flyer background image.
Selling a property in a big city? While showcasing the floorplan or images of the home are enticing, consider also sharing a photo of the city’s skyline.
You can easily find free stock photos for this in Visme’s stock photo library, or you can use a service like Pngtree or Shutterstock for vector illustrations and images.
Here’s a great way to showcase a trendy home or apartment for rent. Upload professionally taken photos of the interior of the available property to entice potential tenants to tour it.
You can also use a flyer to showcase the exterior of the apartment building or home. This is a great way to let prospective tenants or home buyers know what the property looks like when they come to tour during an open house.
The flyer background image isn’t the only important part of a flyer, though. The content and design elements are just as essential, so you want to make sure the background pulls the entire flyer together, like you see here in this flyer template.
Our last real estate flyer example showcases a bright, modern background image alongside a geometric shape design. This is a great way to show off what you’re trying to promote in a visually appealing way.
Customize this flyer for any business needs. Simply replace the flyer background image, adjust the text and match it to your brand.
You’ll need to utilize flyers often when creating local marketing campaigns and materials. These are perfect for placing both in your office lobby as well as distributing in local areas that you know your target audience frequents.
Some areas that businesses drop off flyers include libraries, cafes, bookstores, etc.
Abstract flyers can work well for grabbing attention. When someone sees an image like a water splash on a graphic in front of them, they want to investigate further to see what it’s actually conveying.
Consider this when browsing flyer background image options. See how you can find an image that’s relevant to your flyer (like this water splash for swim lessons) but still piques interest.
For a more classic and minimalist flyer design, you can utilize a simple black and white flyer background image like this one, making the other design elements really pop on your canvas. Use a flyer like this to promote your website, products, services, etc., and increase brand awareness.
Another great way to create a marketing flyer is to showcase a photo of your office or your team at work. For a business services company or marketing agency, this type of flyer background image could perform best.
Or if your business caters to tourists and those visiting your city or country, consider incorporating that into your flyer. Showcase stunning city photos that grab the attention of your target customer and bring them into your storefront.
If you’re looking for something a bit more creative, you can use more of a design as your flyer background. Here, we have a stunning image that’s used as more of an accent, while the flyer background uses colors and design elements.
Flyers are also useful as tools to help you make sales. Promote discounts and showcase specific products and services that your business offers to entice customers to make a purchase.
One of the most effective ways to grab your customer’s attention is to use a flyer background image of the exact item you’re selling. Just like we see here, with this camera equipment in the background of a $100 off flyer.
Take professional photos of your own products, or find stock photos that represent your industry and what you’re promoting.
Another great way to grab attention is to simply use a beautiful stock photo like this one here as an accent to your design. The sequin look doesn’t take away from the massive discount being offered in the flyer.
Our stock photo library has a large variety of images just like this that make the perfect flyer background image.
Do you know what really catches people’s attention? Photos of other people! If you really want to get your audience interested in your flyer, include a flyer background image that has a person or group of people in it.
Using a color overlay to contrast with the background, like we see in this template above, is a great way to still add depth to your flyer without your copy being too busy.
If you’re promoting one of your services, using a flyer background image that showcases your service in action is a great way to grab attention.
Someone looking for a similar service will instantly be drawn in, especially when you include the price and what the service includes front and center.
Trying to get the word out there about your nonprofit organization? Nonprofit marketing can be tough, but flyers are a great way to raise awareness about your cause.
Use your flyer background image to showcase what you’re trying to protect or raise money for. This is the perfect way to tug at the heartstrings of your target audience.
Photos in nature can help your flyers grab the attention of those who would be most interested in your nonprofit.
If you’re hosting a bake sale or other promotional event where proceeds go directly to your charity, grab attention with a stunning photo of the items you’re going to be selling, like we see here with this flyer background image.
Greyscale photos are another way to promote the seriousness of the content in your flyer. Find something relevant to your cause to use as your flyer background.
Charities surrounding pets and animals also benefit from utilizing animals in their flyer backgrounds. People love their pets, so this is a great way to hit their soft spot.
