Ok...


1. Your name is not a headline. Place it somewhere else.

2. Overall, it's a symmetrical layout but that "box" on the right is taller.
If you can't make that one shorter, make the one on the left the same height.

3. It looks like there are double spaces between words in a few places.

4. Bump everything down so it's not "up against the top" so much - give it some breathing room.

5. Maybe make the space between the three images and the image above a little bigger. (Like at the top portion of the ad)



Headline suggestion using text already used:
(spacing/fonts limited with what I have to work with here - just showing to give an idea)

Or even consider some kind of special offer at top too. It looks very nice though.

Not the designer here so you mention a three step process you might want to explain that instead of leaving them guessing.

Remember, you want your attention getting headline or offer at the top. You want to grab the readers attention as quickly as possible so they will read the rest of the flyer.

Hi friend!

Here are my inputs, and as Steve says, try to put the offer at the top to grab the attention quickly. I think you can reduce the size of both boxes and distribute the text more efficiently to gain space for the coupon.

If you send me the elements, I can re-do it for you (at no charge!) using photoshop. Let me know.

Good luck!

That looks good. While you are experimenting, why not try putting the 25% off coupon at the top where you now have the 'we make it green' wording.

What do you feel would grab your eye more on a flyer 'We make it green.' or '25% off!'

Now it looks much better!

I think you can add the 25% OFF coupon inside the left box at the very bottom. Just play a bit with the spaces.

Hi i was trying to add a coupon like Steve mentioned before but i would advertise more for higher end clients and a 25% coupon on the top would bring in clients who are looking for a deal and i can only give them a deal with a contract so what you guys think about this one?

I think you are on the right track.

You may want to experiment with one flyer for one section of town and another flyer for another section of town and see which pulls in more customers. Then you will know which flyer works better.

That's good. Are you going to limit the offer for a limit or expiration time? or does the coupon has to be mentioned or presented in order to be honored?

If so, I suggest you to write in a small note about that at the bottom of the ad.
