I'm reasonably new to InDesign and completely self taught. I'm currently trying to setup my master documents for a series of double-sided flyers for my company. Each flyer will have some elements in common (basic layout, logo placement etc) but many differences (colours, text box placement, text itself). I'm trying to figure out how best to go ahead. Eventually there will be more than 20 different flyers (in a mixture of A4 and letter sizes, some docs will be exactly the same bar paper size) so I need to make sure initial setup is as organised as possible!

Set up one file for each paper size. Lay out the masters, set your grids, styles, swatches, etc. and save each as a template.
