    What do you guys think about this for my ad in the yellow pages?
    We made this in illistator 9 in about 20min. Pretty cool program for this kind of stuff.

    Aren't the yellow pages supposed to make the add for you? They did for us and it looks great; yours does too. But If I'm going to pay $6,000 for a phone book ad then I'm going to milk them for all they're worth; eh?

    That ad is gorgeous!! And I'm not kidding.

    I hope the ad works for you. My Yellow Pages ad really sucked!

    BTW, your stripes are a little crooked. :D

    OK, I'm kidding...........I know you're going to say that you planned it that way.

    Really good looking ad though

    Very neat, and professional looking ad.

    IBgreen how long does 6,000 get you in the phone book?

    get your wallet out! That ad is going to cost you your know what. All that color is expensive.

    Looks good though

    One of my accounts works for them, the ad run 360 a month. However she loves our work and is hooking us up for $80 a month. Full color, dollar bill size ad. Can I get any more lucky!!!

    Sun shines on a dogs @$$ sometimes.



    You guys should look into buying the software I mentioned above, it will save you a ton on advertising designs. You can do bus. cards, ad, website you name it. Once you get the hang of it there is almost nothing you can't do.

    Thanks for the input, I will let you know how it turns out.
