I can't seem to recognize the file type you are using.

Please save it as a .doc and we'll be able to open it

Kind of hard to read, not because of the colors but because the font.

Maybe change the font to something easier to read then your flyer is all set.

I'd suggest to change it to Arial or something

I was kind of thinking the same, but I wanted some responses. I made a change. Now what do you think?

Better ! You can delete your 2nd page if your going to print the document, it's going to print a blank page for nothing

Comic Sans has weird kerning that I just can't like. The number is still in that old font and you definitely want that legible. It is at least readable now.

bigger image? and if ones a door magnet than id deffinately take alot of the detailed text off..

cars drive by..you need it quick and simple..Name Number and maybe Motto with free estimates and a website..dont go into alot of detail..the text needs to be big enough to read and easy enough to catch the eye
