Wow. Marcus is so cheap he cuts my yard... And I'm a LCO!!!!

Wow! Just goes to show you the importance of proof reading. I'll tell you one thing though. With those prices he has to be making at least 50 bucks a week. Outstanding!!!!

That's funny... and sad all at the same time.

I agree, i'd complain about it not being rotated, but it's so bad that even reading it sideways is worth it. I really hope this is like a 11 year old kid's flyer and not an adult!

The GOOD thing is it only costs $5. The BEST thing is......

08-04-2009, 01:23 AM

Ya. I may subcontract him to do all my yards. That will cut way back on my overhead.

I will admit... all the criticism may be justified.

But also learn a lesson from it!!! Over the years I've worked for with some so called ...intelligent.. individuals that fancied themselves designers. I have seen them turn out crap just like this and worse, while spending thousands of dollars to produce it.

My rant here is because it is easy to do......... a n y b o d y ... can design, and print whatever they want. And 80% of it is just crap.

There are professionals in all fields. We should seek them out... if we want to appear professional when we advertise.
