    What do you guys think? I'm just getting into the lawn business part time now.

    Is there anything that I'm missing? Anything that should be different? Thanks guys.

    Looooove it! The red phone on the green grass really pops out! 2 tips - take 'em or leave 'em. Unless you plan on using all of them for the Spring, you might consider dropping the "this Spring" so that you can use them at a later time. It may even save you an art charge when you go to reprint. Also, I don't see an area code. Where we are, there are 2 area codes we serve. Also, with so many people keeping their cell #'s, I'm never sure where I'm calling anymore!

    Good luck!

    For your first postcard it's not too bad. Like Firstdew said, I'd put an area code in there. It would balance out that text area. But the thing I dont like is i think it should read "Tired of mowing the Lawn every year? The reasn why is... The heading calls it "Grass Mowing" and your next bullet calls it "Lawn Mowing."

    Put a discount offer on there 20% off first cut... whatever. You need a reason for them to call you.

    My opinions!

    I might change the mowing the grass every year to tired of mowing the grass every week. I dont know why really just reminds them they are going to have to do it every week and makes them remember all they time they spend. Just my opinion do like the design though

    I like it!

    But yeah, add your area code simply to "fill in" the space there.

    And change "every year" to "every week".

    I updated it. What do you think? Does it make you want to call Mike's Lawn Care??

    I would throw some discount coupons in there so people have an incentive to call your biz not the other million competition out there.

    the first letter style is MUCH easier to read. You did the right thing to get rid of the word "yard", though.
