I've been a computer geek for many years and yes all my own design. It would have cost me about $500 to get someone to design such a piece like that. If anyones interested and not in my area, I would modify it for them for a small fee.
Okay, I need to review the artwork while writing. I haven't printed yet, wanted to maul it over for a few days first.
Starting with the couple. I wanted to show something personal that would scream, "Just Relax and Let Us Do The Hard Work". I think that couple on the nice green grass does just that. Why work when you can love?
The insured sign is obvious, I have since enhanced the lettering to look like it is etched into the steel.
The Hands Logo are for branding and I moved it to the back page. I want customers to see my bill board (soon to come) on my trailer and when they get that flyer they will say, "I've seen them, old friends". When they go to my site or pick up my business card they will see that same branding.
Many of my wording came straight from ideas I got from gopherforum, thank you so much. This forum is a godsend and I try to put my two cents in every day.
The back was about all those people that won't bother or can't reach my website. It was like putting my site in print form. Actually my site, http://www.afpettijohns.com
is about to be modified to reflect that flyer rather than the other way around.
I also added the very bottom of the fronts lettering and phone number to the back of the flyer.
After designing it, I will upload it to Vista Prints that will charge me about $16 for 25 copies, front full color and back greyscale. That way I can make a final approval for the order of 500 I plan on placing.
I'm pretty long winded huh? lol Glad to be here!
Thanks Again, Aleister

Can you give us a little background on what you were thinking as you were having these put together?
Why do you feel you went with such design elements?
