Whether you're advertising a garage sale, a concert or a new business venture, a flier with tearaway tabs can help ensure interested individuals have a tangible reminder of your message. Instead of forgetting your web address or phone number the minute they walk away, they can carry it home for later reference. It's quick and easy to make a pull-off flier either by hand or on the computer.

Things You'll Need

  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Decide how long you want your tabs to be. Generally, 2 1/2 to 3 inches is a good length. Measure this length from the bottom of your paper and mark it off with a horizontal line.

Design and create the body of your flier above your line. Make sure to include eye-catching artwork or photographs, if possible.

Measure 1 1/4 inches from the left edge of the paper in the space you have reserved for your tabs and make a vertical line from the horizontal line you drew earlier to the bottom of the page. Do the same from the right edge. These edge tabs will be wider than the rest of the tabs. You are now left with six inches in between. Measure and mark off six 1-inch tabs. You can also do the same layout on a computer, using a program that allows vertical type or using a pre-programmed template in a word processing program.

Write your pertinent information on each tab. This may include a web address, email address, phone number and brief description of the service, event or item you're advertising. Make copies of your flier.

Cut along each of the vertical lines so you have a fringe of eight individual tabs hanging from your horizontal line. Now passersby can quickly tear away a tab to take your information with them.
