I see what you mean by that, my initial idea was a Q and A type thing to help them understand what they would be getting for their money. I figured that would be How can I make the most of my aeration
And if its needed overseeding can help thicken up your lawn after the tough summer we have had this year

Are you aerating aquariums?

What's the thought process behind "blue"?

I mean, besides the fact that blue is the first color people think of when they think of a healthy lawn.

Wait, what?




Can I assume someone gave you a bunch of blue paper for free?

As a matter of fact you can assume that I was given 500 sheets of high gloss 8.5 11 sheets
What would you reccommend?

I'd recommend being less... frugal.

Your 15, cheap is ok. When I started out I printed 500 color fliers on plain paper and had great results. I have made them nicer each year until my current design which I feel can be used year after year

I used the image I made for my business card, and added dirt with a root system underneath it and made and aeration diagram. I think this will fix everything. Royalty free image, incorporates the blue and IMO looks more professional. Opinions? Any ideas on a different offer?


EDIT:I uploaded the wrong image, I fixed the grammar spelling errors like "healthier roots growth" I fixed all of that I just uploaded the wrong one

OK. Looks much better. NOW the blue could be viewed as "sky" above the grass and makes for a nice color combo.
That's the good part.

The bad part is that your grass and such at the bottom won't look like that if you're printing on blue paper. With a blue base instead of white, the colors will look BAD.

On that note, you can't print white text on colored paper unless you have some sort of printer that can lay down opaque white ink.
