    Yeah, you got some typos there. Other than that it looks nice.

    I guess the 13 people calling each day could care less about the typos. Out of the 13 how many jobs have you gotten and what is the readership of the newspaper you advertise in?

    lol, I didn't see that,

    A designer does all that. I just proofed it. wow, i really didnt realise. I guess its because they have to translate from french to english as it runs in 2 different languages.

    Out of 180 calls i signed 28 new lawn customers and got about 10,000$ in extra jobs. not bad for a $1000.00 add. :)

    That's funny. The "weekly" thing is one of those things that when you read it, it doesn't matter how it's spelled. It looks the same. There was a thing on here (off topic) a while back that someone posted about that. They had a paragraph that was all spelled wrong, but you read it clear as day. That was definitely observant, I must say...
    Anyway, the ad looks great. Also, there's something about it...it has a nice "retro" look to it. It reminds me of an old ad you would see in an old newspaper page that you would find.
