    I went to dgpink.com and am ordering 2500 of these. What do u think? I'm not a master at photo shop by any means so It may seem kind of rough. I like it and let the season begin. Oh, it took me 12 hours to get this done! :dizzy:

    looks pretty good. One question though, the black where your name is on the front,is it a screen or a solid? if its a solid you may have a couple of issues. 1. it can look linty unless you are using gloss paper. 2. the black can tend to be a little inconsistent. (my full time job is printing,also I did the same type of thing when I ran my first set of flyers about 5 years ago, so I want to keep you from having the same issue.) anyway, ask the people printing them about it (always ask lots of questions!) just my 2 cents, hope it helps.:rolleyes: Jeff

    If you have a magnifing glass you can look at almost any picture, newspaper pictures for example are screens, when you look at them there is hundreds of dots, usually just 4 colors (red, yellow, blue, and black) that is what gives the picture the color and image it has. If it is a solid there will not be dots and no white paper showing what-so-ever. I probably didn't explain it very well, but if you get a chance look at a colored picture in the newspaper.

    ok so just out of curiosity I went to "www.dgpink.com" and found that the site is ad site. Also, are these going to be 8.5x11? If they are you are doing 4 color glossy, probably 60 pound paper, I am guessing...if so you will be looking at anywhere from 1200 - 2000 dollars to print that. Just to make sure you are aware..good luck

    Just an idea to save money

    Instead of 1 8x10, I split the page into (2) 4x10s
    Double the flyers or half the cost however wanna think about it

    On the back, you should use either "we" or "I". Not Both...

    Go to postcardmailer.com before you do anything else.I had 5000 color bi fold brochures printed for a little over $500.Also,you can download templates to use as a base for your design size.
    If you need any help,pm me and I'll get back with you as soon as I can.Personally,I don't care for the design.It's too plain and not what a brochure should look like.Nothing personal :D
