When I first entered the printing industry over 10 years ago, I’d never heard of InDesign flyer templates. I thought you had to create everything from scratch. Today though, there is a growing trend of professional flyer templates in INDD format to help freelance graphic designers speed up their design process.

InDesign is typically used for large scale printing jobs like magazines, brochures and catalogs, so you may be surprised at the thought of using InDesign to create flyers. In recent years though, Adobe have worked to make InDesign a more versatile and user-friendly design tool, making it easier to use for smaller design jobs like flyers & posters.
Along with improvements that make InDesign a more efficient tool for small flyer design jobs, but a growing number of InDesign flyer templates are beginning to pop up on web.
InDesign flyer templates are readymade flyer designs in INDD format which can be downloaded, edited and used as a starting point for your next graphic design job.
These InDesign flyer templates are a fantastic resource for lovers of the old-skool printing tool, and you might be surprised just how flexible some of these INDD flyer templates are.
With the explosion of the design templates market over the last 5 or so years, the focus has typically been on Photoshop. But in a drive to stand out from mediocrity, Quark and InDesign “dinosaurs” have crept out of the woodwork to start offering their own InDesign templates – especially flyers.

Why use InDesign flyer templates?
If you take on a lot of flyer design work, these pre-designed flyer templates are a great asset to have in your graphic design toolbox (or at least bookmarked!). Likewise, for those of you frequently working with InDesign, downloading a range of available flyer and poster templates could be a time saving asset when you need them most. As an added bonus, because each of these templates are premium assets, they can be used 100% royalty free!
In this post we’ve rounded up some of our favourite flyer templates for InDesign. In our quest to create a useful round-up style resource post, we’ve included flyer templates for a wide variety of design jobs. You’ll find flyer templates for nightclub events, realtors and real estate agencies, handyman services, product businesses and more.
The business & corporate style items that InDesign is so commonly associated with are of course included in this post, but it is nonetheless interesting (and hopefully useful) to see just how many different types of flyer templates are now available for InDesign.
Note: we have taken our best care to ensure all of the InDesign flyer templates featured in this post are compatible with Adobe CS4, CS5 and CS6. However, for best results and guaranteed compatibility, upgrading to Adobe CC is your best option.
Event & Fashion Flyer Templates for InDesign
Flyer templates for events, nightclubs and fashions shows are becoming increasingly popular on graphic design stock template marketplaces.
When you mention event flyer templates to a graphic designer, the default thought is Photoshop PSD, certainly not INDD. And as expected, these designs don’t feature a style as glamorous or energetic as a typical Photoshop flyer would be. Event & fashion flyer templates for InDesign are far more reserved, clean, minimal and professional.
Corporate / Business Flyer Templates for InDesign
InDesign is a very corporate-focussed design tool, and because of this, it’s no surprise to see such a large number of corporate and business style INDD flyer templates available on the market.
There are literally hundreds of different templates to choose from, but we’ve sifted through them for you to highlight which we think are the best. If you disagree, let us know in the comments!
Real Estate Flyer Templates for InDesign
Real estate is another key market for designers who prefer using InDesign. The clean real estate window cards and repetitive work of creating the same design over and over again for different properties can be shortened with the use of a good template.
Every designer has their own style and every realtor their own brand, but with this collection of INDD real estate flyers you’re sure to find something to your liking.
Church Flyer Templates for InDesign
InDesign church flyer templates are not just flyers. They’re programs, advertisements, funeral brochures, wedding posters, service announcements and more.
It may seem odd to include Church related content in this post, but the church is a big part of many communities around the world. And as so, they become an important client for many designers, even if their work is pro-bono.
These church flyer templates for InDesign will help you speed up those pro-bono jobs so you can get projects finished in time for Sunday service (or so you can get out for a beer on time!)
50. What INDD flyer templates did we miss?
Over the past half-decade the explosion of readymade templates for Adobe products has been an incredible opportunity for graphic designers. But with that said, the Indesign sector has been noticeably slower to catch up. This could be due to InDesign’s more complex templating procedure (i.e stylesheets), or maybe because InDesign users are more “purist” or professional.
Regardless of how much you do or do not like templates, there’s no denying they can be a useful tool. A good INDD template can be the difference on spending 3 hours on a flyer design, or 30 minutes.
So I pass the baton over to you. We’ve rounded up (what we think are) 50 of the best InDesign flyer templates. Do you agree? Do you think there are any items we have missed? If so, leave a link to your favourite INDD flyers in the comments below.
