Default door hanger - content feed back please

attached is the door hanger i came up with.

at vista prints i can get 100 8x5 cards full color front, one color back for like 30 bucks.

anyway, i did not want to clutter up the front, but still want to be effective in delivering a convincing sales aid. sometimes when graphics are busy or cluttered, people have a tendancy to over look them. i wanted to make it nice enough that their eyes stop. it could still use some work, but its ok for slapping it together.

the text is still up in the air. i wanted to come up with somehting about reclaim your weeknds, or something, but didnt spend mcuh thought on it. -suggestions on tags lines and such would be appreciated.

on the back i will list all of my services in a form like list, checking off what i services, i feel they need. with a small notes or comments section.

anyway, i will purchase the hi-res images and produce the real one tonight.

thanks again.

I like the bright colors, and the creative anglular positioning of the business card in the middle. I also like the nice big house in the picture, which I think communicates classiness. My only concern is about how the grass in the front/bottom seems darker/duller than the bright grass in the back. Would you like those to match more closely?
Great flyer!

thanks everyone. - i like your lawn is our lawn.

lol, back will be simple black text, maybe repeating the name and number.

i agrees about the grass and colors. yes, when i download the hires images and put a littke more time into it, i will fade the grass out smoother on bottom and make the colors match closer. not exactly, but closer.

thanks for the tip. i never thought about staples i just defaulted to vistaprints. from a company that size, i would think the quality was good too. i plan on getting cards, hangers, and 2 door magnets.

If you have a website, you want to make sure that you put that on there as well.

Looks pretty good.

I'm not a fan of having the business name competing with a headline (because a business name ISN'T a headline), but sometimes there's only so much you can do with the space you have to work with.



Also, check this place out for printing: http://www.overnightprints.com/

I've been very happy with business cards and post cards I've ordered, and if you order/get on their email list they send promo codes on a regular basis that make them equally competitive in price with crappy Vistaprint and you get a better product.
The only negative thing I can say about Overnight Prints is that their shipping prices are a little high depending on when you want the product delivered.

looks really good.

I know you said you threw it together but if you are going to use that pic, you need to buy it from Istockphoto or find another similar one without a watermark.
