Brochure Design


We are looking for someone to layout and design a brochure for our small home improvement company. Not sure if we should use a local company or someone "out there". Seems like it might be tricky to come up with the photography needed for one for a local printing company where we are. We have laid out a rough idea of what we would like for text and such. If you have some information that might help please let me know.
Looking forward to some Spring here!
Thanks,
Dave

www.kbkgraphics.com I just used this company for my new business cards, I will post some pictures next week. Several people on this site use them for their design and printing.

BTW, nice site.

Re: Brochure Design


yeah i believe it was about 2 grand. but it was a lot of bach an forth and a lot of worh for him. the brouchures were bi fold with a pocket for the estimate and cut out for business cards. they are printed on the best paper i could get and 2000 of them were about $2,500. but well worth it... don't do it online

Re: Brochure Design


If you are looking for something really reasonable check out vista print. They have templates etc that look pretty decent.

Re: Brochure Design


Just did mine at vista print. Easy to do and they look pretty good. Cost me about $75 for 50 pc. I will order more after I get the design the way I want it.
