The flyer designs are not quite print-ready.
All of the flyer design PDFs on this website are provided with three lines of placeholder small print on one side:
- “Printed by… at …”
- “Promoted by… at …”
- “DO NOT PRINT UNTIL THIS LINE REMOVED AND ABOVE LINES CORRECTLY FILLED IN with a person’s name and a postal address”
That means they’re NOT ready to print just as they are. Your flyers may not legally be printed until the correct “election imprint” for your print order is in place. [An explanation of election law for DIY campaigners…]
Before proceeding you MUST either:
These step-by-step instructions will save you £20 on your order from A Local Printer. You do not need to have design skills. Just do your own small piece of screen work as directed here, to imprint your own flyers. Then continue following the steps to manually submit these files to the printer.
We can recommend the online printer A Local Printer, to deliver a box of 5000 double-sided, full colour A6 flyers to your door for £105.
We will be delighted to feature high-quality flyer designs by a range of other artists and designers.

So this is interesting. Twitter user @Rachael_Swindon has been producing handy, and very popular, little memes like this:
Now, Facebook has not traditionally allowed “paid boosting” of images which are covered in text. However, they’ve recently loosened their rules, which are no longer very clear; they do tell you that texty images “may not run”, and a couple of paid boosts I’ve attempted have been unsuccessful. But, but, I’ve been allowed to paid boost this meme to Brighton and Peacehaven residents unhindered, and it’s gone super viral! Here are the stats for direct reach of the £100 I’ve been able to spend:
Want to reach ordinary voters in your local area? Want to reach like-minded people? Want your own easy and fun publishing project? If you can lay your hands on any money at all (from your pocket, from clubbing together, or by fundraising, you can order Facebook sponsored posts (paid advertising). You will then be able to reach hundreds of the Facebook users of your choice that we normally don’t reach…
So, I’ve been spending most of my activist time lately setting up the flyer design gallery, and the main crowdfunder push for the donation pages set up on this website will be coming within maybe the next week or so…
But with the voter registration deadline approaching, I’ve given a bit of a push to the #RegisterToVote crowdfunder, and had a good response! Thank you very much to everyone who’s donated. £180 has now been raised – £171.11 net of our crowdfunder platform fees.
That’s all been put into Facebook, and at the time of writing £143.44 of that has been spent. That money has directly reached nearly 29,000 young people’s news feeds, targeted as far as possible to marginal seats.
Want to reach ordinary voters in your local area? Want to reach like-minded people? Want your own easy and hugely fun publishing project?
If you can lay your hands on any money at all (from your pocket, from clubbing together, or by fundraising, you can order Facebook sponsored posts (paid advertising). You will then be able to reach hundreds of the Facebook users of your choice that we normally don’t reach.
You can reach 1,500 to 3,000 people with a budget of just £10. If you can you fundraise £100, then you can sponsor reach of your chosen Facebook post(s) to between 15,000 and 30,000 Facebook users…
That will include thousands of Tory supporters, thousands of unengaged people, and many uncommitted voters.
Advertise to the exact audience you want
And if you choose to, you can tell Facebook to show your ad only to the exact audience you want:
- people who all live in the same town or neighbourhood, OR
- people who all have the same shared interest as you, OR
- people who are all in the age range you want, OR
- people of one particular gender – men or women.
With a big fundraise, you might be able to reach most of the Facebook users in your town, or your community of interest!

It’s easy to get your Facebook page started right now!
Step 1: Go to your Facebook home page.
Step 2: On your Facebook home page, go to the ‘EXPLORE’ section in the left-hand bar, and select ‘Pages’. (Your ”EXPLORE’ menu will look a little like the picture on the right, although everyone’s is a little different.)
As the owner of your new page, by default you see a somewhat different view of your own page to a normal page visitor. When you first see your new page, the lower part of your window should be headed ‘Welcome to your new Page’.
Below the ‘Welcome to your page’ heading are the three easy steps to get your new page looking good and ready to start sharing around.
Know your Facebook: What’s the difference between a Facebook ‘page’ and a Facebook ‘group’?
A Facebook page is automatically public. Anyone can ‘like’ and read all the posts on your public page.
Your project group however can (and should) be closed, so that only group members will be able to read group posts. Group members are added by you or by another group member. Group members can be removed if necessary by an admin.
Create your project group page
Your main focus will be your public Facebook page. However, if you don’t already have another safe digital space available for keeping in touch digitally with your own project team – a space that other people who are interested in helping you out can find and join – then it might well be worth starting a ‘group’ too on Facebook.
Creating a group really couldn’t be much easier.
