    I think you should spend a little more time on it. Try to find some better pics. They don't really go with what you are saying. It kind of like this:

    We can make your lawn look good

    (look, a pic of my mower)

    we are affordable and professional

    (i have a weed eater too)

    no contracts, free estimates

    (hey, another mower)

    I hope I don't sound like a dick, I'm not trying to be. I'd scrap the pics. Maybe use some clipart pics or something. Are you printing these? If so those full color pics will eat up some ink and take longer.

    Maybe you could put a sun pic in there, to remind them how hot it is and how much it sucks, and then something green to kind of show what you can do. Just some thoughts. Please keep in mind though that I'm just a plumber and these thoughts may not be worth the time it takes to read them!

    My opinion, I'd say back to the drawing board. Be more creative with it.

    You have been in business for 20 years with advertising like this? It looks like a 15 year old kid put that thing together.

    First off....It is not the fact that I cannot "afford" to pay $100 for flyers...I don't see the sense in it. I have a fulltime job that pays 100K-plus (that is to awnser your question about how I can afford the truck that I drive). I do not need this lawn thing at all, My regular job pays all my bills and then some, yes I do enjoy doing lawncare and respect those full timers that work hard for their money but it is not a must for me...so while the other guys are sweating gas prices, weather, lowballers I have the advantage of being able to put my toys away and watch the other guys stress...not bragging just stating my situation and addressing this a$$whole comment!!!
