It’s rare to see printed flyers for weeklies and monthlies these days. I usually don’t see flyers on my car unless I have attended a festival. Several people standing outside a venue after a show with a handful of flyers used to be rather commonplace. Not anymore. With more people setting up shop on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media sites to connect and court prospective customers, it makes sense that promotion has transferred to the Internet. Digital flyers have replaced printed flyers, allowing a greater reach and a reduction in costs. There are a host of flyers slapped together that combine the best of the worst: small and/or illegible font, a blinding font color, and scantily clad women who are never at the advertised event. Then there are flyers that show that someone cared enough to put the best image forward of the event. Take a gander at some of the better-designed flyers floating around the web right now.
