Flyers are an effective and inexpensive method of advertising. Flyers by DesignHill can help you sell something, spread a message or help you find something. You can create a flyer in minutes and print as many copies for distribution as necessary. One popular idea in flyer advertising is including convenient tear-off tabs. These tabs contain your contact information (such as a phone number, name, email or web address). Interested individuals can then tear off the tabs and take them for later reference allowing them to contact you even if they don’t have a pen and paper handy. There are a number of flyer makers available in the market but making flyers with tabs is simple.
How to Add Tear-off Tabs:
While editing your flyer template design, you can add tear-off tabs by tapping ‘Layout’ and then ‘Add Tear-Off Tabs’. With the Tear-off Tabs editor, you can edit text in one place, it gets duplicated on all tabs automatically. You can change the look of tabs to match your design. Here are some of the visual properties you can change for tabs:
- Background color (or make it transparent)
- Text color, font and size
- Separator line color and style
- Number of tabs (anything between 2-20)
Editing Tear-off Tabs:
All editing options for Tear-off Tabs can be found in the right column of the editor when you have Tear-off Tabs selected.
- Use the ‘Edit Text’ box to add in important details, like name and contact information. This information will be duplicated automatically across all tabs.
- In the editing column, you can also change the text font, for all items. The font you select takes effect across all text items within the Tear-off Tabs.
- To change the number of tabs, drag the ‘No of tabs’ slider to change any number between 2 to 20. Use the ‘Opacity’ slider to set how opaque or transparent you’d like your Tear-off Tabs to be.
- You can also change the separator’s look via the Style option under Separator in the ‘Edit’ menu. You can choose between:
- A dashed line
- A solid line
- No separator line
- Use the color option to change the lines’ color.
- Select and drag the boxes around your Tear-off Tabs to change the size and place it according to your graphic design template’s dimensions.
How to add tear off tabs to your flyers?
Open a word processing application such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Create a blank document by going to “File” then selecting “New.”
Adjust the margins so the text can fit to the edge of the page: Select “File” then “Page Setup.” This will open a small prompt on the word processor. Select the “Margins” tab. Adjust the bottom page margin to the lowest printable setting, which is usually 0.17 inches.
Create your flyer by adding a title, pictures and text. Grab attention by formatting the title with a larger font size, bold style or bright color. Make the description text smaller than the title. Upload any pictures by clicking the “Insert” menu, followed by “Pictures” or “Images.” Navigate to the file and click “Insert.” Complete the flyer’s main text and formatting. Leave space at the bottom for the tabs.
Make a table at the bottom of the flyer by using the Table feature. Go to “Table,” then click “Insert Table” to create the layout. Select the table option for one row. Enter a number for the column option, depending on how many tabs you want to create. Six to 10 tabs is a good amount for an 8 1/2-by-11-inch page. Click “OK” to insert the table.
Expand the table’s row size by clicking on the table’s line with your cursor. Hold down the left mouse button and slowly drag the table’s row size until you are satisfied with the layout.
Add the desired text to the first column. Include your contact information (name, email, etc.).
Format the text to a vertical position by clicking on the “Table” tab then clicking “Format.” Click on the “Text” tab, and change the “Text Direction” field to “Vertical.” Some word processors may label this feature as “Rotate Text.” This action will change the text to a vertical position.
Copy and paste this information into the remaining cells until all columns in the table contain the contact information. Save the file when you finish by clicking “File” then “Save As.” Print the file using the “Print” icon on the toolbar.
Use scissors to cut down each vertical tab line, creating a “fringe” of paper tabs. This makes it easy for people to tear off the tabs. Distribute the flyers and hang them using staples or thumbtacks.
How to add Tear-off Tabs via mobile?
Go to the editor and click on “Add” in the top selection bar.
From the drop-down menu, click on “Layout”.
Now, click on “Tear-Off Tabs”. Your tabs will be added to the bottom of your design.
Click on the tiny door icon on the bottom right of your screen to show the various editing tools.
Just like the desktop editor, you can use the mobile editor to change them:
- Number of tabs
- Background color
- Separator style
When we use flyers for marketing, we only need to plan how to design a good flyer, even if it is from a free flyer template with expert assistance, which may be significantly less expensive than booking an advertisement online or in print media. All that remains is for us to develop and brainstorm ideas with a team of two or more individuals. The first step is to create an outline of the design and ideas. Then, take it to a designer such as DesignHill who can transform it into a professional design. If hiring a designer is not feasible, the flyer can be brought directly to the printer, where pre-designed templates can be utilised to improve the design.
