How to create a flyer in Powerpoint | Quick Tips & Tutorial for your presentations

Did you know that PowerPoint can also be used to create flyers? Just like that! You don't need great design skills and it will be very useful to announce your next event, promote a new product or the special menu of your restaurant. The possibilities are enormous. So get ready because we are going to show you how to make a flyer in PowerPoint step by step. Let's get started!

Define the slide size

Before you start, it is important to choose the size of your design, so that the images, texts, etc. that you want to add to it will fit well. Open PowerPoint, click on the top menu Design > Slide Size > Customize Slide Size. You will see a pop-up window appear. Once you are in it, choose Custom from the drop-down menu, and there you can choose the orientation and dimensions.

If none of the default options fit you, you can directly type in the size you need. Keep in mind that the maximum allowed by the software is 142 cm.

When you click OK you will be asked if you want to maximize the size of the content or ensure fit. Select the latter option so that the elements you have already inserted will adapt to the new format.

Pro Tip: Most flyers are printed in A4 size, which is 8.3 x 11.7 inches. On Slidesgo you have different A4 format templates, ready to print.

Choose the flyer style

PowerPoint itself gives you several style options for your flyer, which you can select from the Design tab.

Add images and text in PowerPoint

Think about all the elements you want to include in your flyer and decide if you prefer to leave the background blank or add an image to help you convey your idea. In this happy birthday cards template you have several options that you can adapt to your needs.

To enhance your flyer, in the Insert menu you have a multitude of options available, apart from images and text: tables, icons, symbols, etc. Add whatever you need, but always keep in mind the harmony of the design and its legibility. And, above all, don't forget to include contact information and a call to action.

If you are going to print the final design, make sure that the images you use are at least 150 ppi, to avoid pixelation. You can check this by right-clicking on the image. Click on Properties and go to the Details tab. In the Image section you will see the vertical and horizontal resolution.
