    I would not do flyers the the pouring rain, but a drizzle or light rain, sure espically if I cannot mow during that time. Make the best use of every minute that you should be working. A few might get wet, but you sure might get a new customer.:rolleyes:

    Also, to add to this it might help if you had flyer bags. I do not flyer in the rain, but that is not saying that I wouldn't.

    If they get wet they go straight in the trash. At least in this house they do :)

    You design your flyers while it is raining out. You pass them out when it stops! LOL

    I have done them in the rain before, not a downpour, but normal rain. Take one out and leave it in the rain and see what happens to it. It gets wet, nnothing more, the ink wont run a single bit.

    OK well it was just my opinion, but.. I did not mean leave it out in the rain. I mean putting it in the paperbox by the mail box. Unless it is pouring rain the flyer will not be soaked or probably have more thna a raindrop or two. So lawman, why would you take one out and leave it in the rain. Not good idea.
