•• 3: Design and Create a Flyer for the Sale of a Business
After 25 years, your Uncle Mitch has decided to sell his ice cream shop and wants you to help him
create a sales ﬂ yer. The shop is in a choice location at the corner of 135th and Main Street and has
an established customer base. The building has an adjacent, paved parking lot, as well as an outdoor
seating area. He wants to sell the store and all its contents, including the equipment, tables, booths, and
chairs. The 1200-square-foot shop recently was appraised at $200,000, and your uncle is willing to sell
for cash or on contract. Use the concepts and techniques presented in this chapter to create and format
a sales ﬂ yer. Include a headline, descriptive body copy, a signature line, an appropriate photograph or
clip art image, a bulleted list, a decorative underline, and if appropriate, a page border. Be sure to check
spelling and grammar in the ﬂ yer.
•• 4: Design and Create a Flyer that Advertises You
Make It Personal
Everyone has at least one skill, talent, or special capability, which if shared with others, can lead to
opportunity for growth, experience, and personal reward. Perhaps you play a musical instrument. If
so, you could offer lessons. Maybe you are a skilled carpenter or other tradesman who could advertise
your services. If you speak a second language, you could offer tutoring. Budding athletes might harbor
a desire to pass on their knowledge by coaching a youth sports team. You may have a special knack
for singing, sewing, knitting, photography, typing, housecleaning, or pet care. Carefully consider
your own personal capabilities, skills, and talents and then use the concepts and techniques presented
in this chapter to create a ﬂ yer advertising a service you can provide. Include a headline, descriptive
body copy, a signature line, an appropriate photograph or clip art image, a bulleted list, a decorative
underline, and if appropriate, a page border. Be sure to check spelling and grammar in the ﬂ yer.
•• 5: Redesign and Enhance a Poorly Designed Flyer
Public locations, such as stores, schools, and libraries, have bulletin boards or windows for people
to post ﬂ yers. Often, these bulletin boards or windows have so many ﬂ yers that some go unnoticed.
Locate a posted ﬂ yer on a bulletin board or window that you think might be overlooked. Copy the text
from the ﬂ yer and distribute it to each team member. Each member then independently should use this
text, together with the techniques presented in this chapter, to create a ﬂ yer that would be more likely
to catch the attention of passersby. Be sure to check spelling and grammar. As a group, critique each
ﬂ yer and have team members redesign their ﬂ yer based on the group’s recommendations. Hand in each
team member’s original and ﬁ nal ﬂ yers.
