This is a postcard to be sent out with 2-3 others to follow. I made this postcard to give the customer an idea of who we are. I plan on sending the same people 2-3 other postcards offering specific services. What do you guys think?

.....and the back.

I decided to go with black and white for cost purposes. Do you think it takes a lot away from the postcard being just black and white on the back. I figured the front had enough for the senses.

Looks really nice, is the front glossy? Also I really like your logo.

Make sure you keep the design to the set areas the post office dictates. If you go outside those boundaries, the cards may not get delivered. Especially the bottom area where they print the bar code. They have a template on the usps website.

Other than that, very nice. How many will you be sending, and to whom?

Yeah I am going to run print out my own and send it to myself to see what happens first.

Hey Derek, that looks like an A1 class act postcard there. I am not sure I like the half tree on the back, but that's ok. The front is what's going to grab their attention. Let's shoot for lunch Saturday....looks like I am going to be busy this week. Bring that postcard with ya. I will be in touch.

This post card is going to be sent out about the middle of february. Kind of an introduction of sorts, but I would like to get some people thinking about their landscape. Any suggestions on how I could do that? I was thinking about adding something like .....wish it was warm out? Give us a call we can help give you some vision for this spring. Something like that...just better wording.

The front is too wordy;
Try this on for size:

Timber Creek Lawn & Landscape provides excellent customer service; and a finished product that will impress you, and your neighbors.
Let's start planning your new landscape today!


"is a company that" breaks up the action of the sentence.
"strives" only means to make an attempt.

The B&W only on the back is fine with a good front.
The half tree on the back works for me.

Your right the "is a company that" is really not necessary. Webster says that strives is "to devote serious effort or energy to." Which is what I am really going for. And to be truthful you can really only attempt to provide great customer services. Chances are everyone is not going to be happy.

The semicolon really should be used, I just don't like the way it looks.

I am going with "Timber Creek Lawn and Landscape strives to provide great customer services, and a finished product that will impress you, and your neighbors."

Lets start planning your landscape today, I like. I just think it needs to be more noticable than with the text there. I am not really for sure where it will go, it may have to go there.

Thanks for your input.
