if you have CS then i am sure you have Illustrator. go to file, export, Illustrator or something like that.

from what i read online, thats basically all you do. not saying do it right now but just saying. fyi..

and your right, fonts make or break the design for sure.

Before I finalize it, is it possible that I can put your phone number, email address on there?

This way people dont call 123.457.7890 LOL :P

Usually I save the file at 300DPI, which increases it's size. So when you place it within Vistaprint, it'll shrink itself but maintain high quality.

Default My military lawn care service

My business name is "Avets Lawn Care", you can check out my site at www.avetslawncare.com

I just started my business after being in the Army (infantry) for 5 years, although I had a business for 6 years before joining the military.

My slogan is, "From the front line to YOUR front yard"


Please give me any input and advice or changes I should make to my site. Thank You.

Thanks, went to the print shop this morning. looked a little off so i resized a few things but overall looks good i think.

as for the above website, i really like that you put your face, history and current pictures. one thing i like more than anything is the before and after picture. maily that you dont have to open a picture in a new page, close, it, open new one, etc etc. you have slides and this is very nice. cant make a website a pain you know.

a rule of thumb.. 5 seconds on a website, if you cant figure it out, the client will leave.
