We’ve already previewed some great flyer backgrounds available in the Poster Maker, check them out here.
Information to Add to Your Party Flyer
Depending on the theme of your party, you want to make sure to add a title to your flyer that will catch everyone’s attention. Try to think of creative words and phrases that people will be attracted to. For example, instead of ‘Summer Party’ you could write ‘Sizzling Fun in the Sun’. There’re a few pieces of basic information that you should also be included. It’s not necessary to include all of the points listed below, choose whatever you think suits your flyer best.
- Time and Date
Types of Images and Photos to Use
It’s important to keep in mind that flyers are distributed and that they can sometimes end up in the hands of people that they weren’t intended for. Because of this you probably don’t want to include personal photos of yourself, family, or friends. Search for more generic images using the Flickr search tool available in the Poster Maker. There are a bunch of party related clipart available in the Poster Maker as well, just click the ‘add clipart’ option. We’ve reviewed our clipart library previously in this article: Exciting new Clipart for Party Flyers and More!.

Take a Look at the Sports Templates
We recently added over 50 new and exciting backgrounds (view library of backgrounds) to give you a starting point for your poster. In these, you’ll find bright and colorful templates for soccer, football, basketball and more general sports backgrounds. Before selecting your background you’ll obviously want to decide if you want to make a poster for one team or a poster including photos of your star in different sporting events. There’s a very cool background of a stadium with fans which is suitable for any type of poster you decide to make.

Tips on Collecting and Editing Photos
Any parent who has taken photos at a sports event knows how difficult it can be to capture the perfect moment. That leaves you with lots of sports photos that may not be suitable for your poster. Here’re a few tips to select photos that will make your poster look like it was designed by a professional:
- Either select photos where the person is in the center or crop the photos to exclude any unwanted background.
- Exclude any photos that are blurry or fuzzy. They’ll ruin the overall look of the poster.
- Use tools available in the Poster Maker to enhance your photos. Make sure to take a look at the Erase Background, Edge Effect and Posterize Effect. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
