I've been making flyers like the one below for quite a while now. Up till now I only have been giving them to my dealers but I have decided to make them more generic and then make them public. I'll be linking them off my website by the end of the day hopefully. I know my dealers love them and eventually if I make enough of them they could make a great catalogue. They are full page images and print nicely on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and yet are an easy download, under 100kb.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Graphically, they are quite nice. Colorful and easy to read.
However...

Where is the lead or the hook? Is there a pitch? How are you going to draw folks into buying these from you as opposed to other online vendors?

Do you offer discounts? Perhaps free (cheap shipping)?

Free WL's on orders over $75.00? :devil:

You need to make your product stand out further than the other guy.

You need to go to lengths that the other guy won't dare.

Just constructive advice. This is not a criticism. And good luck.

I even customize them for each of my dealers who want them. I have no problem with sharing them.

Very nice, Gary. I like them.
I also like the idea of mentioning new castings.
I think that they would make a useful reference tool for collectors like me.
Being able to print them on 8 1/2 x 11 paper is a great idea.
Thanks for bringing up this topic.

Cheers. Cobra

I like them better than the JL news letter check list! Not to put down the check list but having pics helps when your out looking. Especially when your at a retailer that stocks a ton of cars you've seen for the last year that haven't sold.

My website has a printable option that gives this organized breakdown of a particular series or search result. I have never added pics to it but perhaps I could in the future.

is it me, so early on a sunday morning, or is your pez picture a mirror image ?
Yep it's a flipped image. I do that simply for the asthetic design and appeal. Some times it works and sometimes it don't. In this case it don't since I just noticed the words are backwards ... redo.
