I was just kidding about those being mine. But I will be honest ... mine are simple and cheap. They are on colored paper though....just straight to the point and bold black and thats it. I have seemed to have good luck in the past so I will see what happens this year.

When I started I did black on white but they were at least decent. Also I have done mine black on green paper and it has done well. About 1 call per hundred or so. But this year I have finally gone to the post card.

Be careful about mailing out a post card. I did that and had 0 calls off of 1000 at the prime time first of march. I have done flyers and usually get 1-3 percent off of them.

I am putting them in the crack of the doors. I figured instead of doing the paper why not just make some post cards and just put them out. I think they are 4x6. They have the general basic stuff on there and look good. Much easier to put out to. No rubber bands, no tape. Only thing is if someone has a screen door we seem to have a hard time getting them to stay.

I used to have a company put them out but no longer do that. Just to much money and I like to know they all get put out. Thanks for the heads up on that to.
