    Hi Corey,
    With your limited budget you can make them yourself. As far as the leaf goes I don't know you can try it. I would go to walmart or sams and get their package of colored paper there are about 4 diff colors to a bundle and try that. Right now I think vistaprint is still offering 25 flyers free just pay shipping. At the end of the order they will offer to double the order for a minimal charge you can do this too. Send these out to business etc... or place these in a high volume area.

    I would keep track where I put them, and when you get a call ask where did they hear of you so you can keep track of what works best.

    I work over in Anderson co. I started to advertise last week, I don't do alot because I'm part-time. I bought 500 + 100 free postcards from vistaprint for $50. Sent a couple of hundred out and used the rest to put in gas stations etc. I also sent out 1000 flyers. Had 8 calls this week. 2 for hardscape (I don't do that) 3 for renovations, 3 for service. So far 2 service signed up and I just sent out the renovation bids.

    Try the templates in Microsoft office and then have b/w copies made.....cheap ..yes ....but very cost effective and you can just go attach them to doors or mailboxes on your own in areas that you prefer to grow your business in.

    If you have Microsoft Office, depending on which copy of office you have, you can use online templates like Buckeye said. The only thing is that you need to have Microsoft Publisher for most of the templates which is a program that comes with the premium copy of Office. If you don't have Publisher, you can download a copy from office.microsoft.com for a free 90 day trial

    Microsoft publisher is what I use for flyers and business cards and they look better than most of the ones I've seen here that were done by printing company's.
