Leaflets
« on: July 19, 2008, 09:56:40 AM »
Want your opinion.
Was thinking of doing up some leaflets, so that everyone can help promote the site.
Firstly are people interested??
Secondly any preferances on pics/style of logo used?? Want to include peoples ideas.
Cheers

Just right click on the image and select "save as.." then print at your leisure.

They are sized to fit 2 on each A4 sheet.

well i said i'd have a go. was pleased with it when i printed it, but when i've put it on here its gone very grainy, not sure why. anyway if anyone likes my effort, i can email you the document and it should come out better.

tbh i dont mind which leaflets are used, as long as people are handing them out!!!!

Thanks for that, i've had another go and think it looks better now. Its sized to fit 4 per page if you rotate it 90 degrees. also i like to put a name and number on leaflts as i feel its important for people that dont have internet to be able to still get help, so to add yours copy and paste into word or publisher and stick a text box over the top.

I know the last post was almost three years ago, but did anything come of the flyers? Never seen a TC flyer. Carltons in my part of the world are a rare beast.

Just save em and print em Kev!
We never settled on an "official" flyer but above are myself, chris and Steph's efforts whichever one takes your fancy will do the job.

If anyone else fancies having a crack feel free - post them here for all to see though!

I suppose I will have to get me arse to the library and get some printed. The last Carlton I saw on the road was in Southend months ago. Other than that the last I saw was at Billing.

I would say come up with a bit more colour / posh looking. i suggest printing them on thicker paper or preferably card if you can.

I reckon cost is not too serious because we are only printing a few each not a large leafletting campagn. Because they are going on SELECTED cars it needs to not get ignored. Make it clear it is specifically for them and their car not just the common or garden marketing shite that I automatically throw away.

I have highlighted the .com as the equivalent .co.uk is unfortunately a male oriented site. I would do it nicer but I just wanted to show the general idea.

I also believe that if it has your handwriting on it then people are more likely to pause and read it. You would only need to write a few if going on the targets windscreen.
