    This is my first year and right now I am printing a black and white flyerÂ’s to pass out on to car's and other open shopping centers and what not, The only resign I am doing this is for two resign's
    1; its very cheap for mass printing

    2; I have broacher's that are full color and everything else that I have to hand out when I meat the cust it in full color and Very neat professionally done

    I am just trying to get my name everywhere I can so I can get customers

    So ya black and white is OK but I always like to have something to back it up when you meet the customers in full color and nice and neat!!

    The more you look professional the better YOU will do, ALL my customer's love the way I present my self and professional look.

    Why the heck would you offer 3 free lawn cuts? You have any idea what the gas prices are going to be this year? Rumor has it that its going to be between $2.50 and $3.00 a gallon. I dont know how you expect to make any money with that offer. In MI your lucky if you get 30 cuts in the whole season per customer.

    atleast put the flyer on color paper. That is what i do and I get atleast a 1.5% return on them.

    I did mine B/W printed on bond paper. Looks pretty good. There is a huge difference in B/W to color.

    Three free cuts is a ton. I don't offer any discounts! Haha.

    Hi adam5557,

    Good for you. What ever you can do to get your company name out and the services you offer is a great thing. Maybe put together a website with full color before and after pictures. Have your website on your flyer?

    Here is a B&W flyer that you can download too if you need more ideas.
