you can look at vistaprints.com or uprints.com or taradel.com

i believe thats the correct spelling of those but a google search or someone else here will clear it up if im mistaken

What i personally do is go to staples to get bright cardstock for fairly cheap and print B&W over it but they have a prettyy good turn out around here

we have trucks flyin around allover with little door magnets that no one can actual read and one big competition...who is actually my neighbor..

were not enemies..but this is all beside the point..the point is if its not necessary i would get bright flyers and print B&W with a nice clean design on them..if you have an office..show up early and use there copier a few times..that is if you do get cought you wont get in a lot of trouble ahah

to cut the holes..stack em' up
clamp em' down
use a hole saw on a drill press
sounds cheap but if you do it right its a very suprisingly clean cut..try it on an old notebook or something first to get a feel for what your doing..

to cut them in half its a longer way out than the holes but i cant think of any better ideas.. just get a box cutter and a straight edge and make sure they dont move on you..

i hope this helped
and if anyone can give any better tips or add on to any ideas ive had..
id be glad to hear them as well :

What do you use the holes for on your flyers?

Oh you know what i described how to make the door hangers..

im sorry you guys..but at least that gives you a good idea if your making door flyers..

Another way is to go to a hardware store and just get a die..
its a bit slower but if your a perfectionist its a cleaner cut..

Oh that got me thinking. If you are drilling a larger hole for a door hanger, what kind of bit are you using?
