    To each his own, but personally I would not recommend sending out black and white flyers. Your marketing piece is a direct reflection of your company. If it is a blah looking black and white piece of paper, blah is what people will look at. I know you are thinking about budget, but think about how you would like potential customers to view your business. Professional Landscaper..... or the lawn boy down the street. Just thought I would give you my view. Good Luck

    I am on the fence about "fancy shmancy" full colored flyers vs. a simple black and white. I handed out about 100 black and whites last year I made from a program I have and they turned out really nice but in B/W. I got 4 new customers out of it, I figured thats not too bad for an hours worth of work. But if you are having them mailed out by a company then I would suggest a more colorfull flyer, something that will catch their eye.

    What was the hours worth of work? I highly doubt you.....designed the flyers, printed them and handed them out in a hour.
