I still make and print my fliers at home. I only put out 300 this year as I was only looking to fill in a few slots, but last summer I printed a few thousand (can't remember the exact figure). I used vista print for my business cards. They were really good and really cheap. They blew the ones I got from kinko's outta the water.

try microsoft office. they have templates for flyers specifically for landscape company advertising. You can edit anything you want, and they have a bunch of samples to choose from. mine came out nice. I also made "store hangup flyers" with the phone number rip-off bottoms that was from microsoft office as well. The best thing is, i used the free 30 day trial of micro office so i didnt have to pay a dime for the program templates

I would like to see. How much did you pay for 5,000 fliers?

$395 for 5,000 for everything, he did it all all I sent him was a really cheezy one I made off word with the tear offs on the bottom and he did the rest. Really just had to give him Contact info and services and he did the rest.

I just sent him an email. I may do some fliers and get some lawn signs. That looks pretty good.
