Overall, i think that your dooehangers look great. I agree with the rest of the guys with the whole 10% thing. I would just leave it off. I guess overing a free cut is ok? I offer a free cut if one of my accounts gets me a referal.

Good looking flyer and it's nicely layed out. Sorry but i just don't really agree with the whole discount and 10% thing like many of the others. I think offeing a free cut if the customer has fulfilled curtain requirements but after that i just do reg. price. I offer a free cut under some circumstances to entice new customers but often just a discount. You can't work for free. Hope that that flyer gets you lots of work (i meant that in a nice way, not being sarcastic).
