We're halfway through the development process of a new postcard design for Seann. Check it out - he's already received 32 different designs.
Seann's Advertisement Design Contest (http://go.prova.fm/3)

What do you guys think? Are there any designs you like the best? I like things simple, so #10, 13, 18 are my top 3.

I love the top one, i take it thats #10.

It has alot of info contained on the card, i think people want to know what they might be getting before they even call.

And the colors are awsome, if that fall look doesn't make you think here come the leaves i need someone to get them up, than i don't know what will.

Great look.

mark123,

hah! I WISH I was a designer. When I had my lawn care business, I HATED making ads. It took me days to create & then they never worked. I'm horrible at design & after talking to many businesses, I realized a LOT of business owners don't advertise or do it poorly for the same reasons. So I created Prova.

lawncrafter56,

What do you mean by how long & where can you order? If you want to start your own custom contest, you can click the "Launch a contest" link at www.prova.fm

If you want to know how long it will take, that depends. YOU get to select the deadline (Seann picked 2 weeks I think). If you want to know how long it will take to print & deliver, well, we work with a great printer so it doesn't take long.

If you want to purchase a "template" then you can browse our template directory (although there's not much to sell yet).

If you start a contest this week, I'll print you out 500 free postcards.

I see. I was just wondering because it says "ad designer" under your screen name but I know that designers hate spec work. It was like a strange mix of opposing views that I was trying to get my head around.

I like this one as far as the amount of color.

Thanks Steve,

But I can't take any credit for these designs. They're made by our fabulous design team. Seann's up to 44 designs. I'd love to hear his thoughts with only 2 days left for entries.

If anyone wants to run their own postcard contest, let me know. I'll print you out 1,000 free postcards.
