Photoshop Flyer Size?

by 10 comments
Hi everyone.

I am having a difficult time finding the appropriate size for a flyer for Photoshop.

I want this flyer to take up an entire page (NO LESS NO MORE). Even me saying it's a flyer doesn't matter...I'm just not sure of the width and length in pixels of what an entire page would be for my flyers.

Thanks!

    Well in this case, instead of creating a document in pixels you would create the document in inches by height and width. So the paper you are printing on, you need to measure it, and then match your document size in PS by going to file>new> change the width and height options from pixels to inches and match the inches to the paper. Walla, your good to go!

    What's the purpose of the flyer? Kinda makes a difference in it's design.
    It's pretty typical to design at a high print resolution and size to create a master then output it to various intended purposes. Do you need bleed and trimming?
    3mm is a typical bleed.

    8.5" by 11" would be 612px by 792px at a resolution of 72px per inch. (web)
    8.5" by 11" would be 2550px by 3300px at a resolution of 300px per inch. (print)

    Here is a free example psd flyer at 300dpi CMYK

    This will be a standard advertisement flyer, made attractive.

    So you mean non-web but for printing?

    Yeah flyers for non-web printing on normal US paper.

    Ok, then this tightens up the requirements quite a bit.
    Print work requires more attention to detail.
    Typically 300dpi and CMYK (not RGB).
    Since this will be print work, one of the best things to do is browse the online print shops and look at their requirements for bleed lines, cut lines, etc...
    You have to have these.
    I like to have my workflow for print work start in photoshop(or illustrator/fireworks, depends) then end in indesign.

    If you want jagged, unattractive text, go ahead and use Photoshop to do a print flyer.

    Photoshop is, as its name implies, a tool to manipulate photos - not vector-based artwork like text.

    If you MUST use photoshop, do it in two documents - one for the pixel-based design elements, and another for text. 300dpi is enough for the photos, but set up the text document to be at least 1200 dpi, 2400 dpi if your machine will handle a document that big without slowing to a crawl. The high dpi of the text document will reduce jaggies in your text.

    If you want to do it right, use InDesign or Illustrator.

    I would Suggest Adobe Illustrator for Flyer Design as A designer I always use AI for my print work...
    Secondly the Ideal size which vista print accept is 8.5"x11"
    Thanks

    You don't need a vector format for printing a raster image. Vectors only help when increasing the size of an image that's already in a vector format (eps, svg, etc...).

    Since I'm new here, I'd like to introduce myself. I am a college student at the moment, studying for computer science and like everyone else on this forum, it seems like we all want the same thing, a successful business. I've dabbled in small jobs (dog walking, lawn work, etc.), but it didn't lead to anything that could expand. For years, I've been searching for ways to start a sustainable business online, but many of my ventures have had little to no success. I've played around with the Nadex platform and traded binary options a bit, but it's just way too risky. Other than that, I've started drop shipping on eBay and that has been my most promising venture so far. Here are my downfalls with my dropshipping business:

    I'm stuck here on what software I can use to perform some basic tracking. I'm using Bing PPC and Leadpages. I thought I could use the basic tracking in Bing and the simple analytics in Leadpages. I've done a small test, running a handful of targeted ads and a few landing pages, however leadpages shows I have 0% conversions. I'm not even sure if it is tracking when someone actually clicks thru my landing page or if all 3 pages I have tested suck that bad.
