A6 Flyers & Cards
A6 flyers deliver your message!
It’s a postcard, a voucher or a special offer, discovered in the letterbox or on the countertop at the takeaway, hairdresser, cafe or gym. It’s easy to pop into a pocket or keep handy in a handbag.
Whatever the message your business or organisation needs to communicate, we’ll bring it to life for your customers and clients with an A6 flyer.
A6 flyers are an easy to handle size and really punch above their weight in the cost-effective stakes. They’re perfect for a single, powerful message which can’t be ignored, despite their size!
We have a great range of premium paper and card stock, including 100% recycled options, that will suit your purpose and the image you need to convey of your business, offer or event.
A6 flyers price
Cheap A6 flyer printing starts at $84 including GST and delivery for 100 full colour single sided. Because of printing setup costs though, a print run of 1000 a6 flyers or more makes the per unit cost much cheaper. For 5000 or 10000 A6 flyers it’s even better!
Standard International Paper Sizes come in three ranges – A, B and C. The most widely used for general printing and stationery is the A series.
A4 is known as international letterhead size (297mm x 210mm). It’s easy to hold, store in a file or folder, and has space for a lot of information, photographs and diagrams. Most office printers take A4 paper.
A5 size is half A4, so 148mm x 210 and A6 is half again, 105mm wide x 148mm deep.
Printers and designers often speak of booklets and brochures having a certain number of printed pages or ‘pp’. 1pp A6 means printing on one side of a sheet of A6 paper or card. 2pp A6 is printing on both sides of an A6 sheet. With fliers though, we often just say single sided or double sided printing.
Portrait or landscape
Portrait or landscape orientation has its origin in visual art, referring to the ratio of dimensions used when painting a portrait of a person’s head and shoulders, or for a picture incorporating a built or natural landscape.
Portrait means the A6 flier design is vertical, 105mm wide by 148mm deep. A6 landscape is on its side, 148mm wide x 105mm deep. This is relevant when thinking about how it will be held and what paper is best to use.
Paper (or paper stock) used in commercial printing has a language all its own. The weight of paper is measured in gsm, or grams per square metre. As a guide, copy paper is 80gsm, gloss or matt flier paper commonly starts at 115gsm and business cards are printed on 300gsm to 350gsm paper referred to as card stock or board.
You may have heard about coated and uncoated paper. That doesn’t refer to laminating or celloglazing, but how the paper is manufactured.
Uncoated stock is paper in its natural state. The tiny gaps between the fibres mean it is more porous, will absorb more ink and has a slightly rough feel. When it is printed, edges are softer and colours not quite as vivid, but it has a welcoming look and feel and is a great match for the right business brands. Most (but not all) 100% recycled stock is uncoated.
Coated stock is produced by filling the gaps between the paper fibres with chalk or china clay and natural or synthetic binders. The paper is then calendered – pressed between rollers – to smooth the surface. Coated stock is therefore less absorbent to ink, making printed colours brighter and detail crisper. When a paper is described as gloss, matt, satin or silk, this means it is coated.
The same weight uncoated paper often seems heavier than a coated stock, so it is a good idea to look at samples, or ask your printer or designer’s advice on choosing the right stock for your purpose.
Both coated and uncoated stock can be given further finishes such as celloglazing, laminating or spot UV varnish. It is often easier to write on uncoated stock if you’re getting a form printed but coated stock can be more resistant to moisture and dirt.
Full colour printing is a lot more economical and available in smaller quantities than it used to be. This is largely due to technological advances and digital printing. The inks used in full colour printing haven’t changed, though.
The term ‘CMYK’ is often thrown around by printers and designers. This stands for four inks – cyan, magenta, black and yellow – that are used to produce full colour printing. It is very important that artwork and images used in full colour printing are set to CMYK.
RGB or Red Green Blue is the colourspace of your computer and device screens and is used for digital artwork. RGB images printed in CMYK look a bit dull and washed out. That’s one of the reasons, if you’re supplying artwork for printing, it’s important to check out our set up guide.
