Flyers and Newsletters

  • The LetterPop free plan allows for 10 flyers to be produced which will be more than enough for most teachers and students. LetterPop has over 300 templates for quick and easy production. This means that newsletters and flyers can be produced very quickly. To start a plan for the number of pictures and information needs to be laid out in advance. The downside is once the template is selected you cannot edit the template to add more photos. This is a great online software application if you want a quick, good looking document but there are limitations if you want something more complex. "You can use LetterPop to create eye-popping newsletters, actionable presentations, irresistible invitations, beautiful product features, sizzling event summaries, informative club updates, lovely picture collages, and a whole lot more."
