Flier

This is my new flier. It will be printed up in B/W. I have used a similar flier before with some success. Let me know what y'all think and if I should add or take away anything.

One more thing...the extra fine lines on there will not appear on the actual flyer. Just the coupon lines.

seems kinda plain and theres a lot going on there. I had to read it a couple times to see what was really going on there. I would add some more color, maybe like a background image and also make it simple and right to the point. Just put in there like 3 or 4 BIG things that you do and if people are interested enough to call you, they'll call and ask "oh can you do___________?" I would also only put 1 phone number on there and make it BIG. You want your name and phone number to be the 2 biggest things on there.

The city is the only one that does irrigation checks free. You need to make it a little painful for them. You have to block a time when they will be there and then talk to them and listen to them whine..

To much on the flyer. It needs to be more flashy imo. Also I wouldn't say anything about being happy with their current provider. For some reason it just sounds weird.

Do you have a good printer yet? We have a great deal on Flyers right now! Call us for a quote. I'd really recommend using some color. It really does make the difference. We also have Band-It & Stick-It with Band-It you can turn your flyer into a door hanger (2 birds with 1 stone) and Stick-It can be added to let your customer stick it to their fridge!
Check it out:http://www.adeasprinting.com/?q=broc...carryout-menus

We are family owned.
Our Prices are GREAT & we can send you a FREE sample pack!

Thanks all. I have been too busy with backflow class to fix it yet.
Free irrigation check=foot in the door for repairs=possible lawn contact. See what I am getting at? TRUST ME, nothing is free.
