looks good.. nice work

personally I wouldn't advertise discounts for seniors or neighbors. That seems to bring out the cheapskates and time wasters. Same thing with affordable rates. I don't know what that means, but for many people it means an opportunity to beat you up on price.

Also list your home number as the office number, unless it is likely to be answered by a little kid or something.

I might also put
Do you like bug bites and blisters
If not,
leave the leaves to us.

and get rid of the smaller line about bugs and blisters.

Good luck hope this helps

I'd move that one leaf up out of the area code in the phone number though.

i thinks it looks good but would take off home # and remove discount. Having home number looks unprofessional. IMO

OK here is the updated version....

it looks good to me.

I like it a lot, the only thing I will hesitate to leave is the Cell number. i would like to leave just the office numbers.
By the way how did you make it? I want to do something similar but I do not know how.

I think the free estimates within 24 hours is a good line.

A little bit of cheese for the flyer.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I bought ms publisher yesterday along with some clip art program(royalty free) and slopped it together in about 4 hours or so. It took longer than i expected but i had a few beers in me as well, maybe that was the problem?

I would put "Neighborhood Discounts" or "Group Discounts". The whole bugs, bites and bags would confuse me if i were John Q Customer. What about "To avoid bugs, bites and bagging, leave YOUR leaves to us" just a thought.

You have a lot of good ideas. The return should be nice

Name and office # needs to be at Toppp.

I don't really like the starburst,, It's hard to read. And I would also, make your name and number bigger. But over all I think it's pretty good.!!

How did you get the MS publisher uploaded to the site? I have tried uploading mine and it doesnt except the file format?

I'd get rid of "affordable rates." What's affordable & reasonable to one person is unaffordable & unreasonable to another, so in the end that line doesn't really say anything.

I as well would like to know how it was made? Maybe they could send us the attachment? :blob3:

I too am curious as to how it was made. How bout a hint?

09-12-2004, 01:43 PM
What did you write the flyer in? ie;program

09-12-2004, 05:37 PM
Honestly, I think it looks good! I agree with some of the other guys though about dropping the discount part of the ad. Good luck with it!

09-12-2004, 05:38 PM
that looks great :D

09-15-2004, 12:48 PM
the flyer was made with MS Publisher and I also used a clip art program ( royalty free).

Thanks for the replies all
