Thank you for coming by – I would very much appreciate your input and feedback.Â I am working on a brochure for my business – something I have wanted for years!Â I am getting a brochure as a thank you for sponsoring the brochure giveaway … and I need your input – please!!Â This is one side of the flyer (the outside)Â – the middle column is what is at issue here.Â The other side of the flyer is the inside. Â This is a tri-fold brochure – it gets folded into three parts.Â Please see the end of my post for a reminder of my current FREE giveaway!

The images of the merchandise are not finished yet – there are issues with these images so far – and I am not sure which items I will use.Â But the main issue is the readability of the middle column of online shops and sites.Â Can you read it better centered or left aligned? Also, which way do you like the look of better?Â I want it to be useful to people – for sure! This is the column blown up to make it easier to see – I think it is bigger than life – so please keep that in mind!

One of my friends said the centered version gave him a headache.Â Susan and I both think we can read the centered a lot more easily.Â Because the websites are staggered, then we both think it is easier to read the actual website addresses.Â Plus I like the way it looks much better centered.Â But I want my collectors and clients to be able to read it – that is the most important thing!Â I really want to hear your feedback – even if it differs from mine.Â Does it bother you that some of the columns are centered?

I am very excited to be doing this brochure – for years I have been thinking about it.Â I have been wanting to promote my vibrant, colorful paintings and also my graphic design and web design business.Â But this last week I needed to actually make decisions and put all the information into a brochure.Â At first I had trouble thinking of what to put in it … then there was too much – so I couldn’t include things like my Artists Statement.Â Here is the column in question – how readable is this to you?Â Remember it is large here.

Someone asked about the inside of the brochure – so here it is.Â Perhaps I am trying to do too much … but I would like one brochure for the different things we are offering.Â Thank you again for your feedback!!

Here is a newer version of the outside – I think I have incorporated most of the ideas that people have shared.Â Thank you so so much for all this input!!Â The images aren’t technically accurate yet – I am doing the layout first and then will go back and make sure they are all 300 dpi tifs.Â Thank you again!! I would love to hear what you think of this version!!
