Default New Design

Im trying to design some new door hangers

theyll be printed on some colored paper in black and white
maybe color..not sure yet

i need something thats apealing in just black and with color

i cant decide what to do

its going to be completely based towards fall cleanups

i want to include that ill come back a second time if needed for only 10$
and i want to include they start at 20$

im on a huge time crunch leaves are beginning to fall (started late this year) and i need to get these out

im gonna be printing them at a kinkos or my library for 5c a sheet

so if i 1000 flyers i only have to print 500 and it will only cost 25$

could you guys post what your using? maybe some ideas to help me out and ill post a bunch of templates filled in and not so you can use them too

lets work together

Heres a blank template for door hangers

at 100% its 8.5 x 11"

its dashed in the middle to show where to cut and where your boundaries are
and the hole is 1 inch

i use a 1 1/2" hole punch

it is perfectly symetrical

Looks good but personally move the $ back to the left.

I don't use door hangers my self. If I do not like someone hanging stuff on my door, I surely will not do that to others. Just my personal feelings on door to door but it works well for many.

You want to stand out from everyone else that is doing the same thing. How about something like this?

Remember that just because you add humor does not mean that you loose professionalism. It is how you add that humor that matters.

I don't know what you are using to create the hanger but I did that one in just a few minutes with Open Office Impress which is like powerpoint only FREE!

Some things to keep in mind are the fonts... Keep them simple and easy to read like Times new Roman, Veranda or Aerial. You can use a goofy font for one thing that you want to emphasize but not an entire design.

Remember if it looks cheap that is what people will think of you.

Now you asked so her it is. Personally I don't like either one. Maybe it is the font that is throwing me off. I can't put my finger on it.

Now that I look at it more, it IS the font that is throwing me off.
