How did the prices from vista compare with having bob print them?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Seancody, there are several things that I like about your flier.

1, I immediately noticed how you used the line "are you tired of thinking about your lawn" and then the grass is a part of the person's "brain". It gives it athe appearance that the person had really been thinking about the lawn to the point where grass is almost growing on his head in stead of hair. And with his head being in the grass level it gives it the appearance that their head had literally been in the grass, brain storming.

2, I like how you used your first name. This gives you a very "personal" and friendly feel to the customer.

3, "we are insured and trusted". You are immediately implying trust and I think this helps people trust you. It almost implies that everyone trusts you. I believe this is a very powerful psychological tool. The first name thing that I just mentioned above also helps with the trust issue. People tend to trust someone more when they know the person's first name.

4, On the flip side, I think it is only fair to also tell you that it appears to me the head is crooked in the grassy flat tophair cut. Now maybe it is just because I wear a flat top haircut and I notice flat tops more but I think that gives you a less professional image. If it's not too late I would try to even up the head in the hair cut. This gives off the air that the barber (in this case, you) is not capable of giving a good haircut (or in this case, an even mow job).

Just my 2cents worth,

Good luck,
Eli

I could have got Justin better prices on printing that he got from vistaprint, but since he is in Canada the shipping would have been very expensive.

So Justin opted to just get the design and have vistaprint(in canada i believe) do the printing.

What is your minimum on printing door hangers ? I may get you to print those since I can't find anybody that can print them with the cutout

WOW !!! My postcards are in already.... They were suppose to be only shipped in 3 weeks but then ended up coming in today. I am happy they are in and they look PRETTY NICE. They were suppose to come in 3 weeks (slow shipping), i only payed 16.95 instead of 49.95 and I got them in 3 days (ordered them on Saturday)

The colors are great, they are exactly what I was hoping they would look like. Maybe it was the proof that was just looking weird with the faded watermark
