If your being talkative keeps bringing good ideas and money-saving notions
into my inbox, keep it coming. I've been thinking for way too long that I
need to print up some flyers or brochures or something, particularly since
we're thinking to go back to market again this year after a two-year hiatus
from same. Now I'll have some more motivation to go develop something,
without spending a fortune in the process.
Happy New Year, everyone, and here's to a great 2013 for everyone and their

The printed copies haven’t come yet, so I can’t show them off. And I don’
t know just how the colors are going to print. But here is a link to a
double-sided brochure, a flyer, and a double-sided business card that I
designed last week. I have grumbled about farms thinking they need fancy full
color brochures, but Staples had such an incredible deal (ended already,
sorry), that fancy color wasn’t much more than me printing black on colored
paper at home.
(http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151372823091287.531240.261550161286&type=3) They aren’t perfect, and I’m sure they break
some “rules”, but I’m pretty proud. I am not at all artistic, so doing this
is a stretch. Now to update the website to get the immediately important
info up on the home page. I spent an hour or so trying to figure out how to
give the website the same background as the flyer, and then updated my
Wordpress, and the update makes it a breeze.
Staples.com has a deal now for 250 business cards for .99 plus shipping,
but free shipping on orders over $20. 100 flyers for 19.99. Free shipping
on orders over $20. I may order more. Wondering if the flyer would be
usable in half or quarter page size, for sticking on folks doors.
I’ve had a week off from markets, and feel much more energetic and “
talkative”. Hope I’m not bothering you with too many things.
