When it comes to newsletter printing, size also counts. Your chosen size when you print newsletters actually tells something about your publication. It usually sets how people perceive your newsletter printing, and it gives them an idea of what content they can expect on it. Of course, this means that you should be wary of your choice of size for newsletters. You want to convey the right kind of message in the right kind of format for your newsletters. So for you convenience, we have formed this little guide on what size says about newsletters. Letter-sized Newsletters The smallest appropriate newsletter size is the “letter-sized” newsletter. This is the easiest size of newsletter that people can produce. Hence, newsletters at this level are usually used by people on a budget or people who are just starting out in printing newsletters. Typically small organizations, amateur newsletters, and even company human resource departments use this size of newsletters. This size basically tells people that the newsletter is of purely a functional purpose for giving information. There is no emphasis on high quality prints, or other embellishments because there are budget considerations to consider. So most people expect these newsletters to be simple and direct. If that is the purpose of your newsletters and you are on a budget, then go for this size. The Tabloid Next, the tabloid format is a little bit larger than the letter sized newsletter, but still smaller than the broadsheet. In most cases a tabloid format for newsletter means it is set for a wider distribution when compared to the letter sized newsletters. Usually people expect a more conversational and simple tone for tabloids. This is basically a standard for most printed newsletters. This makes the tabloid format great for community newsletters, large organizations or even as an official newspaper of a small town. If you are have a large enough budget with a decent sized market of about 300-500 individuals, then the tabloid format may be best for you. Broadsheet Format A step up from the tabloid is the broadsheet size. This is the largest size that you can take a newsletter considerably. Most people expect a certain kind of professionalism and formality when it comes to newsletters in this size. With its capacity for large amounts of information, people also expect broadsheets to offer extensive information about various things in different topics. Usually the broadsheet format is used for large and official publications such as a university newsletter, institutional newsletter or a newsletter for a nationwide organization. If your target audience is about 500-1000 or even more, then this format may be the most appropriate for you to use. Good. With that information, you should pretty much know where your newsletter should fall in those categories. Just match your purpose, style of content and printing budget with the appropriate newsletter size. Doing this should let you produce the right kind of newsletter for you and your audience.
