    On the bright side, without a company name on the flyer, you don't have to worry too much about getting a bad name for yourself with those flyers.

    I stated friend threw it together (I had no say in the content, but chose to use it) and doesn't realy want to edit it. I needed something fast he gave it to me, so I used it.

    Ok, You need to ask yourself what kind of businessman am I that has no say in the content of THE main advertising for your business? I have been constantly redoing mine and still don't think it's finished. It's YOUR business so if a friend (although w/ good intentions) wants to really help you this person would be willing to make any changes you need. My suggestion would be to do a search on flyers here and figure out what you really want it to say before giving it to someone to make up. I do really like the eye catching graphics however!

    I just mentioned to him that I was wanting to get a flyer printed, he is a (graphics designer). He chose without my knowledge to throw it together and sort of surprised me with it. I asked him about the content, and he said he couldn;t think of nothing else. I may ask him to edit it, or just Do one my self. Thanks for all the criticism I believe it is constructive.

    Soooo LawnDreamer,,,,

    Since those 5 didn't fly too well, what are 5 legitimate reasons why someone should hire you?

    How about "I mow better than I spell"?
    :D ;) :p

    Before sending out printed material ALWAYS use a GOOD proofreader. Maybe someone who went to school in Indiana instead of Kentucky... :D
    I have lots of K'tucky jokes.

    You see those Indiana folks just stare over the river like the hebrews, just wishing they could get into the promise land!

    I created a new flyer but I can't upload it cause it is a .pub file anyone know a way around that? So that I can post my new one?

    ??? I'm not so sure about the World history books y'all use there, but modern history books now go beyond Exodus... ;)

    And the KY ed system is evidenced by creating an ad in MSPublisher (I am guilty of that too though). But then I take it to the printer and they convert it to their format anyway.

    Print it and scan it.
    Convert to pdf

    If no luck-- you can e-mail it to me, I can convert into a pdf and e-mail back to you. And I would promise not to edit/change it first. :p

    When you have a .pub document open, click 'file' then 'save as', then save it as a .jpeg or .bmp, that document can then be used elsewhere.
    Depending on size of document and/or graphic ability of computer system, it may come out a little fuzzy on the screen.
