How to Distribute Flyers

It's now easier than ever to send flyers to families! Peachjar makes it possible to upload digital flyers within minutes and without having to leave your office.

District, School, and Volunteer Uploaders submit flyers to be distributed to parents via an email notification and posting on the district and school flyer boards. 

To get started, log in to your Peachjar account. From the navigation bar on the left, select Submissions.

 

My Flyer Submissions Overview

My Flyer Submissions Overview is your submissions hub where you can do the following:

 

Browse Flyer Templates

Access our library of free school flyer templates using the Browse Flyer Templates button. 

 

Send and Post Flyer

When you have a flyer ready for distribution, select the Send and Post Flyer button to get started.

 

Edit Flyer Drafts

Save your flyer submission at any point by selecting the Finish Later button. Select the Edit button on a flyer draft anytime to finish submitting.

 

View Flyers Pending District Approval

Flyers that are submitted for approval are listed as pending flyers until the flyer has been approved or denied by the district or school approver.

 

Remove Flyer

Flyers that are pending approval can be removed by selecting the Remove Flyer button. 

  • Removing a flyer will prevent future flyer emails and take it down from the school flyer boards. It will not impact flyer metrics.
  • Flyers that have been removed will continue to be available in Reporting.

To ensure the content of the flyer will be recognized by screen readers for the visually impaired, the flyer is scanned and its content extracted to create a text version. Review carefully and make necessary edits to ensure the scanned text description matches the contents of the flyer.

If changes need to be made to the flyer, you can re-upload a new flyer by selecting Reupload Flyer. Once the flyer review is complete, select Continue to Set Flyer Details.
