    I've seen that alot of you guys put your fliers in local newspapers. Someone on here said they put 5000 in the for around $200. Does that include them printing them and everything, or do you have to give the newspaper company your fliers to put in there?

    I just called out local paper yesterday. It is pretty expensive here. 10,000 piece minimum. There are two different ways. The first is a 2inch by 2inch sticker they put on the front page that people can't miss because they have to peel them off. But this costs 135 per 1000. The other is the flyer insert which is around 100 per 1000. It is a little cheaper if you do your own flier. The 10,000 piece minimum is keeping us from doing it.

    I had checked with a local free weekly paper that comes out around here. They go by the zip code. I don't remember the price but it was more then what Precision stated for his area.
    So it will depend on your area. I passed for now.
