    I'm creating a stringing advertisement for my club, but I'm no good at making it look attractive. Anyone want to help?

    This is what it looks like in Microsoft Word: The String and Prince are more spaced out on Microsoft word, and these are Canadian Prices, so theyre good prices.

    Professional Racquet Stringing(in Big Letters)

    String Price

    Wilson Natural Gut 16 60
    The ultimate in tennis string. Natural gut is a top-of-the-line string
    which provides maximum power, control, and superior playability.
    Recommended for tennis elbow.

    Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power/Natural gut Hybrid 45
    A pro tour favorite. Used by many top pros such as Marcos Baghdatis,
    Tommy Haas, and many many more. Great blend of spin, and control.

    Luxilon Big Banger ALU Touch Hybrid 40
    Go for your shots with this control hybrid. Combines Alu Power 16L
    with Supersense 16L, this extremely durable hybrid is an excellent
    choice for power hitters.
    Recommended for string breakers.

    Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power 16L 35
    One of the most popular strings on the ATP tour, used by more than
    70% of all ATP players such as James Blake. Great spin/durability.
    Recommended for string breakers.

    Wilson NXT 16 30
    One the best playing synthetic strings on the market. Multifilament
    construction that looks, feels, and plays very much like Natural Gut.

    Wilson Sensation 16/17 25
    Excellent playability and feel using Wilson's proprietary Xycro-micro
    fibers. 17 gauge for added spin and power, 16 for more durability.
    Recommended for non-string breakers.

    Wilson Enduro Gold 16 20
    Designed for hard hitting players who demand the utmost durability
    from their string. A durable polyester with good control and spin.
    Recommended for string breakers.

    Babolat Superfine Play 16/17 20
    A traditional all-around synthetic gut. Above average in spin, power,
    And feel. 16 gauge for more durability, 17 gauge for more power/spin.

    SP Synthetic Gut 15
    A classic all-around synthetic gut, a great value-oriented string

    What should I add? How can i make it more appealing?

    Thanks.

    What do you want exactly? Like a printable flyer with graphics and a layout and stuff? Text is text if you're just using word so I'm not quite sure what you have in mind.

    is this something you are going to put up on a message board for everyone to see, or are you going to hand them out as flyers? if you are going to put it up on a board or up on fences you will want some color to catch people's eye. maybe even print it on colored paper. are you the stringer? might want to add your experience and professional title if applicable. good luck with it all!

    One question...Why would you select these strings for club level players? They are overpriced and don't perform well. Why not get some performance strings that will make your customers happy and allow you to stand out? ie Look into the LaserFibre line and go with a decent copolymer. The Luxilon is more hype than substance and does not hold playability. It works fine for the pros, but they restring every 9 games. Club level players will not change out often enough and will risk arm/elbow pain.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    I know alot of players who love Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power, and they break it once a week. Thats why i carry alot of Luxilon.

    Im going to put the ad on a board, so Ill try to make it more colorful.

    These are Canadian prices, so it isnt that bad. Babolat Superfine play is 26.95 at a store, so 20 bucks is a good deal.

    Any more thoughts?

    kirbster, you might want to add Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex. It's supposed to be the best selling string in the world, and probably be a safe bet. For customers who know very little about string, it might be the only one on your list that they are familiar with.

    Yeah, I think ill add that after a few months. I just spent around 400 bucks on string, so I want to pay off a bit before I buy anymore. I get a deal when I order in bulk so Ill wait a bit.

    Anyone want to help with the design of the ad? I dont have Photoshop, only Illustrator, but ill try still.

    Hey,

    thanks for the help ayyhwang. E-mail me @ kirbster 123 @ hotmail dot com, and I can send you my ad, and you can tell me how to improve it.

    Babolat Super fine Play is 4 bucks at TW. With added shipping and converted to Canadian dollars. 20 bucks is a good deal, plus at stores its around 27 plus tax.

    You should add a labor-only price for installing customer-furnished strings.
