    I said that a long time ago H. Why waste money on fancy flyers when 90% of them will go in the bin.

    why bother designing them yourself when most printers offer free design and have experience

    I think it works out cheaper to do it yourself and that way you can make yours stand out rather than using a standard template.

    It also means you can print then when you need them, no need to wait 12 days or whatever for vista print lol

    Plus I can also focus on certain services. For example at this time of year ill be pushing te gutter cleans for winter, and may time ill be pushing Upvc and driveways from the dirt from winter :)

    Each to their own though, everyone's requirements are different...

    Yeah your right H but once you got that that's it. Also you can just take them & get em photocopied. You can design your own & get 4 leaflets on I sheet of a4. Get a 100 photocopied for about a fiver & you have 400 leaflets. You won't have to buy loads of ink & a4 paper is dirt cheap from tescos.

    I think any effort, is worth a shot when it comes to gaining monthly contracts. More than likely you will only have to get one, and you'll make the money spend on those flyers back in one month.

    But why do you want a minimum for 10 harunh, IMO when you running a small business, its better to have 300 small jobs, than 15 large ones, because if you loose one or two of those large jobs, its a big dent in your income. where as you could loose 10 small jobs, and still be able to recover. IMO those big ones will be hard to replace if you do loose them.

    I don't think you shouldn't go for them, or take on large jobs. But you don't want it to be a major part of you income, when your still trying to establish yourself.
