    I just threw this together today when a friend offered to print out 5,000 on his laser printer. It only prints B&W so that's why the flyer is B&W.

    Any suggestions before I print them? And don't say "give it some colour!". :)

    That is a very nice friend you have there. Most laser printers have cartridges that last 5000 pages. It will surely use up one of his. And they cost around $60-70.

    Secondly most have paper trays that hold only 250 pages, he has to fill them up about 20 times in that 5000 print run.
    Plus the cost of the paper......easily $3 a package of 500 $6 if you opt for the 99+ brightness.

    The flyer looks good....did you intentionally leave out references to pricing....."lowest value...reasonable contracts etc."

    Just a thought.

    I don't sell price, therefore I won't mention it in any advertising I do, price is the last thing I would mention.

    What I'm doing this for mainly is name recognition. I hope to distribute flyers year round and match the logo with a billboard that will be mounted to the bottom of my trailer gate. Plus the fact that my truck really stands out, I should develop a presence in the communities I service.

    Nice logo! The whole thing is simple and sweet and to the point. Although, I will have to say that guy looked like a golfer at first glance.

    I think it looks great... and you can't beat the price for 5000 copies.
