    kinda boring. I dont think you need to entertain the reader or anything but at least provide a little more info like a brief list of services.

    I should have explained that it will have a list of services on the front. I designed it online and had to e-mail in the list to be added before printing. Anyway, the list will floow the Free Estimate line down the left hand side.

    I thought about having a coupon on the back left bottom corner but decided against giving anything away or discounts.

    DON'T BOTHER MAILING THAT!!!!

    If your going to spend money on a direct mail, drop the extra 100-125 and have one PROFESIONALLY designed at DESIGNOUTPOST.COM

    They come up with great designs for post cards. Well worth the 100!

    mrusk is right, DO NOT mail this postcard. You may get one caller out of a 500 at best.

    Please redesign with a title up top that is not your company name. You are using this as an advertisement not a businesscard.

    Its not how professional an advertisement, but how different it looks and its ability to sell.

    Appreciate the advice. I have ditched it and will go to a professional. Only thing is that my other "professional" was worse than this. Anyway, I will redo and probably use that designoutpost.com. Thanks again.
