    Word is not that good for making flyers.....in my oppinion if you are going to do flyers, get them done professionaly....if you're a professional why settle for unprofessional advertising

    It is ok if you are 13 but it won't present you as a professional company with all that clip art...try not to use WORD as your design software.

    And if your professional you should know its not "weed eating" its trimming. yeh it looks a little like a 12 year old did it. try other programs or have it professionaly done, its actually not that expensive for someone else to do it. (which ive found out recently). Good luck to ya!

    You can make a great flyer with MSWord, but I agree it needs more work. Try different fonts/spacing/colors. And get rid of the clip art. Use a good program like photoshop if you have it. But it is an expensive program, so you could settle for the paint program, just take your time and design pictures yourself. If you aren't that artistic, you could take digital pics of some nice lawns that you service and import them into word.

    Or like they said, just pay someone to do it if you have more money than time...

    Agree, loose the clipart. If you want to use images either take some pictures or purchase pictures online from compnaies like www.corbis.com

    Also a good graphic program like Adobe Illustrator will allow you to produce extremly professional looking fliers. Photoshop is more of a photo-editing software where Illustrator is designed around producing graghics.

    Sorry...It looks like your standard, run of the mill supermarket "grass cuttin', bush trimmin', junk haulin', fence paintin', baby sittin', handyman, get 'er done flyer to me. I wouldn't look twice at it. Do a little bit of research on some of the others on here...There have been some nice ones that are well thought out on here. Also, you advertise "fertilizing" on here? On a flyer like this,...it just screams out "Risky Proposition". Again, we'll pass.....

    Ok, so if i took out the clip art and added a more professional looking logo would that make the flyer pretty good?

    Is the words and stuff all good like the services and what the mowing includes??

    Also can yall tell me some programs that I could use that dont cost alot or are free. I looked up the Adobe Illustrations on there website and it said it cost 500 bucks!
