Help with flyer design....

I am trying to get clients to answer my flyer before March 1st. The heading will read:

"GET OUT OF THE COLD BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE"

or

"DON'T BE LEFT IN THE COLD BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE"

I need a picture to place underneath the heading that can relate. I orginally had a snowman that was half melted with the sun shining in the background. Sounded like a good idea at the time, but after looking at it and thinking about.....doesn't really make sense. To make sense the heading should read "GET OUT OF THE SUN BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE"....catch my drift?

Any idea?
Thanks
Matt

it seems kinda tough to see what the point is that your trying to get accross. i mean-if you are trying to get the word out to sign up for lawncare early in the season....getting out of the cold and signing up for lawncare are two totally diff things as i see it.

if this is what your going at...maybe try somthing like this:

dont wait until your living in a jungle
dont delay-soon it will be growing an inch a day!


hope this helped.

Spring is on its way. Don't delay, sign up for lawn care NOW before your lawn is a jungle! Then relax in your spare time, instead of slaving over your yard. Call blah blah blah for a free estimate today! But hurry, space is limited.

Etc etc.

Drop the come out of the cold thingy. If you want to throw in a melting snow man that's fine. Come out of the cold works better for snow clearing.

I see money and time better spent at a better time of the year. Seems like it will be a big waste. Good luck though. I hope you prove me wrong.

In your flier you have lawn scalping . I would change that to either lawn care, or landscaping. the first one is a little busy for me. The second one seams to be ok.

Lawn Scalping is exactly that...cutting the grass (warm season, bermuda & zoysia) at a depth of 1"-1.5". Pays real good also....last year averaged between $70-$80 and hour.

I really like your Logo, walker. Where did you have it done?

I really don't get the 'left out in the cold' thing. Like I said before, it makes me think of snow, not grass. And the 'before it's too late' doesn't really make sense. Something like "Don't be left out in the cold. Call before it's too late" makes more sense. But with that picture, again it makes me think of snow.

Just sayin'.
