    Here's my new flyer. Tell me what you think. The emphasis is on trying to get some work for my tractor (JD 855 with loader, hoe and brush mower).

    Now that looks excellent. At first you were going to post that crappy lawn again. But, that looks like good quality to me. ;)

    Thanks. No, the other was for fun. Bash bait if you will. This is the real one. The one change I've already made is I've taken "service" out of "courteous service".

    Very nice, well thought out flyer. I particularly like the border that runs around the perimeter of the entire page. What will you be spending to make full color copies of those? Seems like that could get pretty pricey. All of our flyers ive done black & white and put on neon colored paper to attract more attention...the color copies was always too expensive.

    Thanks. I think I'm going to reduce the print size on the address and phone # etc. and increase the size of my company name. I'll just print them myself with the HP and mail them. There's less than 100 houses in the subdivision I'm targeting, so it shouldn't be a big deal. The only problem is that it's a Deskjet, and the ink will run if it gets wet.

    That's great looking. I'll bet you use up the ink cartridge on the HP printing it. Who's house is that, a customers?

    I don't like the word "Honest" as your own description.

    Just a red flag for me. I trust you really are, but I don't like to see that advertised. Perhaps the word "reliable" as a substitute.

    Photo looks great.

    Bob - Yes, that is a customers house. I only do the mowing. He has a Master Gardener doing the beds and OrganiCare does the fertilizer & pest control. The house formerly belonged to the president of Stop & Shop.

    What's with honest being a red flag? I wouldn't think anyone would have negative feelings about that.

    Yeah, I might burn through a cartridge printing it, but I can live with that.

    How about "Honest & Courteous Service"? I do not know why, but the word honest sticking out does look peculiar, maybe cause it is dab smack in the middle.

    Burn <b>a cartridge</b>?? What kinda printer you got?? I am buying stock in them right before you print...:p
