    I had a printer do everything for me. You need to read up on it or if you have a "main" post office and not a branch or another branch that you can go to and ask questions.

    ahh the site says 6.5 X 10.75 inches is smallest size. i dont understand why its so big.
    that raises the prices of my flyers quite a bit

    If you have a local printer they could do it. I think the post office website has some recommended printers.
