    Not sure I would on a Sunday, others will disagree.
    Just be confident and don't panic if you don't get any for a few hours. Just keep knocking and the work will come.

    Good luck.

    tip- plan ahead, dont do just one stint, itll be "every sunday till march", or "every saturday morn till june" whatever its got to be drawn out to get the really great results

    i used to print my own leaflets over Xmas break armed with several reams of yellow paper -and id promise myself once the leaflettin got underway in Feb it wouldnt stop till the last leaflet got delivered which took months
