    I am mailing out a flyer in the next couple of weeks and would like to know if anyone sends a letter about yourself and company with flyers to gain new business. Any help would be great.

    I send a flyer, letter, and a biz card.

    I haven't done it myself, but it seems like it would be a good idea.

    I have only done the flyer. Figure there is no need to overload them with stuff, if the flyer is done well you will gain their interest and they will go to your site if you have one or call you.

    I agree about wasting paper and expense. I have read on here where others do a brochure or a binder which includes a letter, company info and services provided but seems they are used for commercial properties and getting your name out with them. I'm in the process of trying to put something like this together for that seems like an expense worth having but not for the average residential job

    some might take offense to that statement.. since tax dollars and you are using the equipment for personal business.

    Keep it short and to the point. Remember 99.9% are going to toss it without even reading it.

    Catch their attention but the less words the better.

    You meant to say......

    " I work in a school system. The local copy place gives me a discount on copies so I can practically make unlimited copies for peanuts"
