DL Printed Flyers & Leaflets
At a third of the height of an A4 page, the DL flyer size is just like a single-page version of an A4 tri-fold leaflet.
They're the perfect slip-in to go with an enveloped letter or delivered package, or as a stand-alone advert that fits in the leaflet holders on top of counters.
DL flyers are also a popular choice in the fashion and retail industries, with a unique shape that's ideal for showing off full-length portraits of models wearing your products.
The best part? Your flyers won't look the same as the A5 competition – so get DL leaflet printing and stand out from the crowd.
What is DL?
DL is an irregular size of paper, which doesn’t fit in line with the ISO 126 standard sizes. It takes on the width of a piece of A4 paper, but its height is only a third of that. So it’s much longer than a business card, but not that much taller. Weird most definitely, but it has its place!
What Type of Publications Use DL Flyers and Leaflets?
You may be puzzled as to where a DL flyer would really stick out compared to an A-series flyer. The possibilities are endless though. Here’s a few:
- Go outside of the box and make a really creative business card.
- Simplify various aspects of your workplace through DL-sized forms.
- Rotate from landscape to portrait and use as door hangers.
- Rotate to portrait or advertising events, such as club parties.
- Rotate to portrait to put a face (and body!) on your ad.
What Are DL Forms Typically Used For?
One of the effective uses found above involves utilising DL paper when printing out forms. This can come in very handy. Some examples of common uses include: a manufacturing checklist, telephone call notepad, receipt pad, and even questionnaires. In most cases, you can also save money on printing DL forms by just utilising the lowest paper density – none of these examples are very demanding in terms of paper thickness.
What Style Flyers and Leaflets Are Available?
It’s interesting to note that the great examples of publication uses for DL flyers put a lot of focus on portrait style designs. This is something you should consider when deciding which template works best for you. You will also want to consider whether you want a template that features a style tailored towards a business, event, product, or service, and etc.
Below is a list of invaluable features of DL paper that should be factored in when deciding what style of template works best for your design idea.
- The dimensions allow for a lot of text to be included.
- The space also accommodates pictures and images of various sizes.
- You can effectively create a background image that’s predominantly wide or tall and still tons of space for text.
- The flyer can be used as a door hanger, folder insert, or even as an attachment on other paperwork.
Keep in mind that the particular style of flyer or leaflet that you plan to distribute will play a role in the paper thickness that you should choose when ordering. We offer DL flyers and leaflets in a variety of thickness levels. A lower level would be fine for forms and a mid-level would work with odd-shaped business cards, but a thicker paper is recommended for door hangers and similar wear-and-tear distribution methods.

- 99 x 210 mm
