    I found a lot of threads about where to have flyers printed, but what are some good places to get doorhangers/flyers designed? I want some places that you guys have first hand experience with and you know that they do a good job.

    My logo is almost complete and I want a professional flyer to go with it.

    Got your place.
    Go to Elance.com.
    It's free lance designers from all over the world.
    You tell them what you're willing to pay ($150?) and they send you bids.
    You can view all of their portfolios online. They all have satisfaction ratings.
    Look for designers that have at least 10 reviews back, and maybe have a 95% satisfaction rating first.
    I've used designers here in the states, had a couple of great designs from Romania, and one from the Phillipines. All have been great but one, and that one was still good. It's a great secret, or at least it was...

    Let me know how it goes!

    Heres another one to check out: Premium Postcards. http://www.premiumpostcards.com/Doorhangers.htm

    I did a batch of door hangers one year from them with a scratch off gift. It worked out pretty well because it was original and attention getting.

    Not an art contest but it doesn't cost much to have a flier looking 50 times better by someone who knows how to work the programs.

    DISAGREE 1000% with somebody telling you to do it yourself.

    When I started having my ads professionally designed my ROI jumped considerably.

    I use a firm called IMDESIGNGROUP.com They have done work for dozens of lawnsite mebers.

    Here are some examples





    His name is Shawn Honea. He runs a design firm called IM Design. It will cost you about $100 or so to get them designed and then maybe a couple hundred more to get a couple thousand printed up. I use 4over4.com.

    IM Design Group

    Do a search on this forum for Honea and you will find lots more examples of his work.
