    I'm new to business and need to pick up as many customers as quickly as possible but without undercutting everyone else too heavily. I was planning to start this out part time on the side but now I have no choice as I have been laid off from my other job that was paying me $17/hr on Friday. Anyways here they are, I haven't decided whether or not to use full color on them though because it seems kind of pricey everywhere except here http://www.clubflyers.com/. Has anyone used them before?

    Looks good. Go with gotprint. 4x6 post card is about 3.5 cents a piece if you order 10,000.

    not bad. fairly generic. loose the addy on the biz card unless its a commercial location where customers can walk in. have the same tele # on both cards. id drop the 15% discount offer and tell the potential customer why they should switch to you other than price. lawnboys that dont know crap use discount offers like that. who cares what your mower looks like. some potential clients will see that pic and think "i dont want that big @$$ mower tearin up my lil yard. K.I.S.S. keep it simple stupid. if you put a pic on the flyer... use something more catchy than an ugly @$$ xmark. go full color. who cares about price. how much cash a company is willing to drop on ads tells a customer how dependable theyll be. we spend $10k a year on advertising.

    but then what do i know.

    technically you should ask permission prior to using the pic or at least not show any logos. at least thats how we had to do it back when i did tv commercials. however, i doubt a mower company is going to give a **** about some small time lawnboy advertising their mower more than his services on his flyers.

    now the question is... why do you want to advertise someone elses product over your services? are they splitting the cost of the flyers with you?
