Companies and organizations are using them to reach out to their potential customers in all major cities in India, like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad etc. Large size flyers can also be printed in a3 and a2 size but that would make them as map or chart and very difficult to distribute.
Printing flyers in custom size
You can print leaflets in custom size i.e. Size different than usual size like a5,a4 etc. But as paper comes in roll of standard width any custom size will result into paper wastage and thus higher cost. Consider you want to print in size between a4 and a5 then rate of a4 size will apply as paper comes in a4 size either it can be cut from center and made into a5 which can again be cut from center and new size will be a6. Custom size you can now consider is a4 size cut into 3 parts so new size can be 1/3rd of a4 size which you can go with paying same rate as a4 size.
