How to Print A6 Fliers

Whether you're printing wedding invitations, birthday party fliers or postcards, choosing the A6 file size for your page means you'll have a nontraditional format for your work. The International Standards Organization determined that the A6 dimensions fall to 4.13 inches by 5.83 inches, which means you'll need to take a few moments to set up your word processor and printer to best work with the sizing. In just a few moments, you'll be able to print A6 fliers for a stand-out way to promote your event.

Step 1

Open a new word processing document and click "File," then "Page Setup." Click the "Paper" margin, then scroll the "Paper size" tab to "A6" and click "OK." If you don't have the preset A6 option, scroll to the custom size, then type in 4.13 inches by 5.83 inches for a vertical page or the reverse for lengthwise.

Step 2

Add images to the page by pulling down the "Insert" menu, then choosing "Picture" and "Clip Art." Type in a word or phrase for the document, then click "Go." Browse the results and double-click one to add it to the page. Continue adding more images as preferred.

Step 3

Click your cursor onto the page, then begin typing. Highlight a block of text, then use the text toolbar at the top of the page to change font, size and color. Type flier information such as your contact details, event information and facts.

Step 4

Turn on your printer, load a piece of A6 paper in and adjust the sheet holders so the paper is held firmly into place.

Step 5

Pull down on the "File" menu and select "Print." Select your printer from the options, then pull down the "Scale paper to size" menu and select A6. Click "OK" to print the page.

Things You'll Need

  • Word processing software

  • Printer

  • Ink

  • A6 paper

Tip

Some small, basic home printers will only print on a standard sheet of 8.5” x 11” copy paper. If this is the case with yours, you can still set up your A6 page, then send it to the printer, but just load in a sheet of paper or card stock, then use a paper cutter or scissors to cut the page down to size.
