    Im getting ready to get my flyers made up and am curious if you guys have noticed a difference in results by the quality of the flyer. For instance, is it worth it to get a two color flyer made for a couple hundred dollars more vs just printing black text on colored paper. I figure 1 account would more than make up the dofference but I would like the opinions of the guru's.....:D

    plain and simple, I feel you will get out of them what you put into them, and like you said, if you get just 1 client from them, they are paid for.

    I made up some real nice door hangers last year for aerating season, and got compliments and comments on how people called me just because the flyer looked so much better than the other 10 they got.

    I'd say go for it.
    Good luck, let us know how they worked

    Color flyers are always going to be more eye catching than black and white. If one account will make up the difference then I say do it.

    Woulld you consider posting a copy of your aerating flyer? I've seen some of your work on other flyers that are impressive and I'd like to see what you came up with for aerating.

    I personally feel much easier to read, and more professional.
    let me know what you guys think

    Spreaking of what colors to use, my business card is orange with black lettering. I want to attach this card to my flyers, but not sure what colored paper to use for the flyers so that the business card and flyers look god together. Any suggestions? The orange is exactly the color of the Philadelphia Flyers colors. (I'm a Flyers fan obviously)

    The door hangers look great by the way

    Anyone else got comments on the door hangers?
    I'd love some input, as I have not printed them yet.
    Will be going in to print them next week.
    Thanks Everyone

    I'm thinking about using Green and Blue as my primary colors.
