In design, sometimes it is hard to even know where to start. All too often designers start from scratch and create a printed document from the ground up. This isn’t bad, but you need to keep standard sizing in mind to maximize your use of the printing press and the press sheet you are printing on. In my opinion, this is where standardized templates really help.
The templates found at the site below are the first building blocks of standard collateral for any company. Flyers, brochures, business cards, door hangers, even envelopes and posters all have “standard” sizes in their categories.
Tri-fold brochures are typically 8 1/2 x 11, or 9 x 12. Posters – 11 x 17, 18 x 24, 24 x 36. Door hangers – 4 x 9 or 3 1/2 x 8 1/2.
It’s important to start with these templates, in order to maximize the use of your dollar. These sizes often require less set up time, and die cutting – which can really help you stretch a print budget to the max.
