Brochures? Do you mean flyers?

Just had a quick browse at the brochures and to be fair, there are some great layouts!

Brochures aren’t as graphically intense and creative as flyers are, but they take equal skill to design. Getting type layouts to look good on a page, dividing everything up and making it all flow and well laid out – it’s difficult.

I also find it tedious due to the lack of ‘creativity’ that goes into it and hard to keep focused, but like I said, to get a brochure right, it takes skill.

I disagree that it’s a problem on the whole. There’s nothing on here you wouldn’t see on the front cover of a magazine at the eye level of a school kid in a shop.

However, I would agree that it is a problem with people who just put a semi naked girl on the front, and the overall flyer is shite.

The more important problem I’d say is the quality of flyers being allowed to pass, not the content of them.

...After all, aspecially in Britain, the nights these flyers are advertising.. I mean, have you seen what girls wear to go out in? haha

girls get in free

That’s massively popular in busy clubs. I was in London the other month and turned down entry because my friend and I didn’t have girls with us! haha!

It was £15 entry to men who had girls with them, free entry to women and no entry to men on their own!

WTF !?

nothing wrong with something that is perfectly eligible to go on show in a shop, on a billboard or in an advert…

So you see this isn’t much of a debatable topic, let’s not make it so.

Yes master. Anything you say master.

Yeah I agree that flyers are a more generic sort of file, however to an extent saying that they contain the same information – so do business cards right?

But I suppose the problem comes as you can get one client (a bar for example) who requires different flyers on a weekly basis, but once a client has bought a business card design, that’s it – that’s their image, once.

But still, would be nice to see the price of flyers go up a little :)

After all, you can’t (or at least not from me!) get a custom flyer design for less than £50

@Hertzel, you’re welcome! Keep up the good work :P

I’m a big fan of the business cards here on Graphic River and a big fan of the business card designs from the likes of Kaixer, Hertzel, Rayzong, etc – so just to make clear, I am not complaining about business cards themselves, I think they’re great…

however it makes me wonder, why do business cards have a minimum price of $6, whereas Flyers have a minimum price of $4?

Flyers obviously take much much longer to design and they are saving the person who downloads a much longer amount of time, etc

What’s you opinion on this?

The business cards category is more expensive, but also seems to have a higher consistency of quality files, whereas the flyers category seems to on the whole be full of cheaper files, with products of equal and higher quality, but also a lot more files of lower quality…

my opinion would be to rather than reduce the price of business cards (after all they don’t have as large a scope as flyers) but increase the price of flyers, along with the quality.

:)

p.s, not a rant, just an opinion/observation
