Are you sending out your card with the post cards?

03-06-2011, 08:37 PM
no, theses are just to put out and give to people. I have someone working on the post card using the logo ext. I will post that also before i send that out. Just looking for feedback on this card before I order 5k

for me, it looks like there is t much writing bunched up. When you look at it different key words should pop out at you, I llok at it and it just kinda blurs together and I have to really look to see what services you offer

Don't want to discourage you but I doubt you will get 40-50 new accounts with 7500 post cards.

I would do the whole card that green color then all text and logo in the yellow/gold

Make your logo bigger and list services on back of card

There is no need for the telephone number being repeated.

You speak of cards. I presume this to mean business cards. If so, why not your mailing address? I understand no need for the address on the post cards, but it would be helpful on the business card.

Where's your phone number? Ohh wait... is it that scribble in the right corner :laugh:

If I were you I'd probably put the logo bigger on the back and enlarge the contact info a great bit, or reduce what info you put on there. do you really need your email or can people contact you through your website?

Maybe you could do something like this...

Jay Oldham............................(123) 456-7890

the dot's are just to take up space, but name big on left, website below it, smaller, phone (what most people will use) big on the right, email below it. Your card looks a tad strange anyway because the services are centered and then the contact is right aligned, but maybe it's just me.

Also, the services seem difficult to read to me, which is either for you to read?

Mowing. Trimming. Blowing. and this. and that.


Mowing - Trimming - Blowing - and this - and that

to me, the hyphens are easier to read

Thanks for the tips, still fine tuning the card and still waiting on the post cards. I will post the final both before I get them. Also JFGouvreau, Im not only doing the 7500 postcards, I also have a 4x4 ad in the local weekly paper, a ad on there website on the top of every page for 2 months, 500 had delivered letters, and many many cold calls. What else could you suggest to get the 40-50 accounts that i need

How about lettering you truck have you done that. I just lettered my new truck and already picked up two irrigation turn sons and a $1100 a year fert account from it. Granted the fert and one turn on is for the owner of the sign company but hey its gonna pay for the lettering

if im behing honest i dont like the cards at all, looks pretty amatuer to me. i would make the entire front your logo/phone number/web address, and list all your services on the back.

goldpro, no offense takes, rather hear the truth then spend the money and hear about it later.

here is the postcard

that looks pretty good man.

here is the postcard

I think it looks pretty good, but if I were you, I'd change the background picture, it just doesn't make me think of a beautiful landscaped and maintained lawn. Also, why do you have dots before each service? I just think it looks a tad strange, I'd either put hyphens or leave them w/o any bullet there at all. I think it's pretty good, but I'd probably change the picture the back.

Keep working with it until YOU get something you really like :)
