2011 Spring Flyer - What do you think?

This is the flyer that I'm planning to pass out this coming spring, I'm going to hit the same neighborhood that the testimonials are from twice (yes, people will actually know who wrote the testimonials). I plan to hit it once before it's time for mowing, and then again right before the grass starts to grow.


What do you think of the flyer?

Thanks guys, any suggestions or things that you would change if they were your own?

Gauvreau - I remember when you were asking for help on your logo a while back, I like how it came out. I think I'm going to print with www.clubflyers.com I had a good experience with the free business cards they offer and they seem to have some great prices, about $50 for 1,000 4x6 postcards. Check 'em out.

Just throwing this out there, but GotPrint.com has a deal where you get 5,000 4 by 6 postcards for $95 for full color front (if you want to have color on both sides it is only $109). I personally havent ever ordered from them, but have heard good reviews.

front looks good but I am not a fan of the back for two reasons.

1: Its too many words. It is a very busy back. Its hard to balance sending something out that is visually appealing while also trying to keep it informative.

2: I dont know if you did it because it was cheaper but there is too much green for me. The back is hard to read because the words dont really stick out.

I love the front though but I would change the back. I would also take off the ambitious teenager. I always try to stay away from describing myself because I think it looks a tad fake because its all opinion. (not that you arent ambitious). Its like saying im a great worker, I care about customers, Im good looking(questionable). Actions speak louder than words and I think youre showing your ambitious, so id leave it at that. But thats just me, you asked what I would do if it was my own. sorry for the long critique, best of luck
