Moreover, your venue would also give an impression to your visitors and guests.
4. Theme and costume: If the party that you will be hosting requires the guests to be in specific costume, then it must be clearly specified in your party flyer or else many will come under- or overdressed. This would also ignite the expectations of your guests on what will happen on your party.
5. Contact details: In order for the people to reach and communicate with you, a contact information must also be provided in your flyer. This may be your phone number, email address, website, social media account, or any contact details where the invitees can keep in touch with for any questions and clarifications.
6. Graphics: It is important to include graphics and photos in your flyer as this can not only add aesthetics to your flyer but also grab the interest of the viewers.
