    I am not completely sure about the design. I will be printing and cutting these out myself to save money so artwork can not go to edge. This was a test to see how much room I had for business card and cut out(cut out needs to move down). The text is also just a sample but the photos are of previous jobs and will most likely stay in the design. Any input is appreciated

    by trying to save money, your going to waste money because people are going to look at this and just throw it out, get something professionally designed its cheap and well worth your money instead of using this thing. Most companies have free design with a hell of a graphic designer, I used adeas who advertises on here and they have great work and great prices.

    I don't want to sound mean, but it's terrible. To be honest, I actually like yours better. It looks so low budget. I guess I see now why they offer a free design. You get what you pay for. Have Bob at plan-it graphics do the design and have adeas print it.

    Also, is their advertisement always on the bottom like that? Or does that get removed? If not how much discount do you get for advertising for them?

    And the Iphone app barcode... does that give info for your company or adeas? And lets be honest, how many people have that app of the people youre distributing them to. I would have that taken off.

    I'm sorry to be so harsh, it's certainly not against you. If nothing else it a compliment, since you did a better layout than them. I would send them a picture of the hanger you designed and have them enhance that a bit.

    Thank you for your input. The stick-it stays im guessing since its new, they want to promote it but since it gives intructions to save and stick to refrigerator im kind of ok with it. The barcode if you scan it, it will pop up with my contact info and website and option to add to contacts or view site. I wanted to try it out as they are being used more. Like now you can scan your prescription and walgreens orders a refill. The app is free on android.

    Yes, Plan-It Graphics is the way to go. Bob's designs are very creative and stand out and pricing very reasonable!

    I second this!

    Bob does great work and knows what works for us lawn guys as he is one him self.......My door hangers were far better quality then all the samples I got from others. I had a couple new customers tell me that that is why they went with me because of my card looking so professional. No joke!

    Bob has done my logo, business cards and door hangers...I love them..

    Your second sample, the letters are way to small...
