    Looks good to me!!! :clapping:

    The only thing I might question would be the 'crazier' font.... the two fonts are kind of totally opposite if you will.... one old/boring and the other sort of modern looking, other that that, I like the layout and use of colors!!!! :drinkup:

    We don't do business in Georgia but the only thing I would say about the flyer is the first paragraph is a little technical.

    also, would that be considered two colour? I had a green and black flyer and was able to get it for two colour price. Usually, green is a mix of colours and so automatically a 4 colour print. I forget all the details of it though but I design my own and had to save as a certain type of file or something.

    Like Bohaa said, if you're printing that yourself your going to soak your page with ink and with laser, its' going to cost a fortune. When a high yield cartridge says 7000 pages, they mean at 5% coverage.

    My thought exactly. Looks GREAT on things that are on the computer screen... But prints HORRIBLY!

    I would consider changing around that....

    First paragraph - Most people are going to get twisted up reading it. It needs to be simple and in plain English.

    Maybe some more information? Maybe a website? Or...? Something to give you some credibility...

    Or maybe some kind of offer??

    The font might be a little hard to read and may give the customer a reason to STOP reading.

    i changed the font and took some confusion out of the first sentence, as far as the black goes, designer said it stays (designer=wife) it will be printed professionally not on my computer.....thanks for all the input:waving:
