Use these general Down Under Tour flyers! Post them up in locations across town and use a sharpie on the bottom of the paper to write in the date and venue of your city's tour stop, then make photo copies as needed! You can also download the image and write in the date through Photoshop (or your favorite image editing software) so it's all set to go before you print it.Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under Tour Flyers

It's very important that you post flyers in the right places - not only in trafficked places so they will be seen, but it is also important that you do not break any laws, upset shop owners or litter. Keep in mind the target audience that you want to see your flyer are potential AFP fans or casual fans that are unaware AFP has a tour stop in your town; this means that you'll have to use some common sense as to where to hang up a flyer. For instance, if your university/college campus has a bulletin board for off-campus events that's a good spot to put a flyer. If your local church has a bulletin board for church news that's probably not the best place to put it.Examples of where to post flyers include:
College campuses, CD shops & music stores, cafes, skate shops, theater production houses, bulletin boards inside independent or college radio stations, in the break room at your job, on public bulletins, a mall or shopping center, at the pub down the street from the concert hall etc.
General rule of thumb is to ASK a business/shop BEFORE you post or leave anything on their property. Most small cafes have bulletin boards that they open to the public for announcements - look for places like that instead of pasting a flyer on a blank wall.TIP
Print ONE flyer out and leave it on your car's dashboard (or place it on your rear windshield of your car) - post it somewhere that many people will see it!Quarter Sheets/Handbillss:
When you print a flyer so that the images appears 4 times on 1 sheet of paper (or in quadrants) it's called a quarter sheet (get it?). These are preferable to full-sized flyers only when you are passing them out directly to people, as the font is generally too small to be noticed when it's hanging on a wall.
-Use quarter sheets only if you intend to pass them out to a person after a concert, on line at an event etc.
-Make sure you pick up any left over or discarded quarter sheets so you are not littering.
-Ask shops/cafes for permission to leave a stack on a table or at the register counter
CREATE YOUR OWN FLYER
Use this thread to post your fan-made flyers, share them here so other people put them to use!Requirements/Tips
-The images should be sized so that they can be printed on a standard sheet of computer paper
-Use of color in your design is great, but it's preferable for designs to be readable if printed in black and white
-Leave specific concert/venue information blank so that the flyer can be used for any/all stops of the tour
---alternately, you can include show specific information and post the different versions for each city to use
-Make sure all information on the flyer is accurate and spelled correctly, use the info on AFP's events page
to get show specific information (including - show time, venue name, city and support bands)
Don't be afraid to make or draw a flyer by hand and then photocopy or scan the original to print out copies. Be creative and go wild!
