So one of my site promotion ideas involved making up flyers or business cards that our users (that is, you guys) could tack up on community boards and leaves places and so forth. We at CHAOS were thinking we could make these digital, so that y'all could print 'em out yourselves and tack 'em up wherever they needed to go.

Jin, our designer, and I were talking and he asked what kind of text we wanted on the flyer itself. Needless to say, the question flummoxed me. So I'm taking it to the community: what do we want the flyer to say?

Incidentally, for the near term, I figured we'd "steal" the look of the back of the DIY business card design:

How about something along the lines of:

Improvements welcome & I'm sure someone else can do better.


"We've already asked the Home Depot employees so you don't have to."

"There is no such thing as DIY electrical work, only potential Darwin Award nominees."


How about a series of cards, specific to different areas of home improvement. They could be based on the most popular tags.

Before you measure, or cut... Ask!

Though that might sound like you're promoting Ask.com???
