Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
The entire thing.

You need to use one of these fonts as they are easier on the eyes

Times
Aerial
Veranda

It may look cool but it is otherwise very hard to read. Confuses the eyes so to speak.

Come on guys help the kid out and give your suggestions. I can't be the only one with an opinion. LOL

Definitely stay away from the font in your logo. It is ok for the logo but too much for a document.

Print them out and have your folks look at them. Don't tell them to pick the best one just ask them to tell you their first impression. First impressions ONLY! That is what counts. Don't let them have time to think about it. Less than 15 seconds are enough to get the impression and what a potential customer will react like. If they say something is wrong but they can not put their finger on it then trash that design because your customer will feel the same way. Normally you have less than 5 seconds to impress someone enough to make them curious.

I think that is the key, peak their curiosity and they will read on. First 2 lines is all you will get most likely. Ask a question or shock them into reading more.

Don't ask something like "Is your yard full of leaves?" Duh does a bear......

Maybe something like

Football or Leaves
Which do you want to do?

Retire to your man cave while we clean up!

We shrink honey do lists
like preparation H shrinks ......

If you are going to go with printing them in color and you will be doing your own printing, make sure you set the print preference to draft, that way you will get many more copies and the difference is not that bad. Don't feel that you will need to be at normal printing mode.
