Default Printing needed

This is not mine but when I saw it I knew I wanted to "borrow" the ideas used in it to come up with something that I will either hang on door handles or stick in newspaper boxes. So I'm not completely sold on any particular type (hangers vs. flyer).

I like the font type used, I like the black background and yellow font. I am looking for somebody to come up with some options for me. I guess glossy is the way to go but I am open. I'm thinking I need you to tell me how much for how many because I am not sure how many I want to print yet. But I will tell you this, I will not miss any opportunity to pass these out this coming year as I'm looking for lawn care and not plowing as my message. These will be in the hands of every home owner I come across next year. I am looking to double my accounts in the spring and by fall have 3 times what I ended with this year. So here it is.

By hand. I plan to use every free moment I have passing them out. This will be better than doing it while I am doing the route just in case I need to talk to potential new customers.

Have you looked at my site? I can design that postcard/flyer for you, and print it for you.

I like some of it too, but I really think we can come up with something better.
Did you happen to see the one I did here...
http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?t=7760

I also did there a couple of weeks ago...




Let me know if I can help,
Bob

OK let's talk some ideas for spring. I want something that will translate well into summer. I did pick up some accounts over the summer last year with a little foot work. But being that I am in the northeast I will likely start hanging these when the snow is still on the ground - you know, July? JK little joke for you guys up here.

I have considered postcards but at the end of the day, I really just can't afford it right now. Maybe next year. So door hangers it is. I could use the exercise after the long winter.

I may consider a spring version and a summer version depending on your cost and minimums.

Pounding the pavement and banging on doors has been my best form of getting the word out. Can't wait to see what you come up with Big.

I looked over my example and yours again and I have to totally agree with your point of view.

I like the second one but the first one is totally speaking my language. The pictures are talking much louder and the written message is short and sweet. Perfect for marketing.

Rob,

Are you going to create a winter package like in that postcard? Like for instance, cleaning an average driveway will be $49.95 or something like that?

What's the plan?

If money is tight you should consider postcards like the ones above instead of door hangers. If you notice the ones above are designed not to be mailed. The ones above will be used the same as a door hanger. In essence they are really nice mini flyers. 4x6 postcards are half the price of 4.25x11 door hangers, (e.g. 5000 cards are $215 hangers are $425) (the ones above were over sized 5.5x8.5)

Just a thought on how to save some money.
