No, I designed it myself using MS Publisher.

Mow & Snow,

It is obvious that you put a great deal of time into your flyer. It looks very nice and thought out. From a marketing stand point for effectiveness it really should be much simpler. The old saying applies to every thing, keep it simple. Hope that I do not hurt your feelings, I just want your efforts to reap reward.

Well because i am basically lazy, I want to be able to put falters out with out having to get out of the truck, so I put them into newspaper tubes or use a tack to stick them to the end of the post under the mailbox. U need to be careful not to interfere with the delivery of mail, as that is against the law. U cannot put anything in or on the mailbox in any way, (such as behind the flag.)

As far as when, thats a tough question. I live in new england where we are at the mercy of mother nature. I try to wait until the first week that temps get up to 70 or so, and it looks like it will stay there for awhile. I like to put as many out as i can on Thursday and Friday so when that first warm Saturday comes along and everyone gets that spring fever real bad, they have my flyer to look at.

Thats what i do. Let me know how u make....

Tom

NO Tape

I don't use tape. If i was the homeowner that received a flyer taped to my door i would be very upset. Especially if it took of the paint. To not risk damaging their property i just place them inside the storm door, underneath the mat, or within the door handle. I try to pick a day that is not very windy or no rain is in the forecast for a couple of days so they don't get washed away.
Just my thoughts
Eric
