We need to create a paper newsletter to be mailed to our database of current clients, prospects, and Centers of Influence (CPAs and Attorneys). (Yes, I know... hardly anyone mails paper newletters anymore!). A lot of our clients are very old school. Especially those that are already retired, they really will take the time and enjoy reading the piece...
We want a template for an 8 page self cover newsletter (11 x 17 that will saddle stitch to 8.5 x 11, refold to 8.5 x 5.5) with one of the 8.5 x 5.5 panels used as the address panel. See the quick and dirty mock up that I did, attached.
IDEALLY, its a background that we like the look and feel of, and that I, with my extremely MINIMAL graphic design skills, can do text placement each quarter. OR, perhaps we develop a relationship and for a minimal fee, you might like to handle text placements and tweeks 4 times a year...
Our PMS Colors are:
Words I would think that would describe the feel of the project would be: professional (people are trusting us to manage their money after all), polished, clean/minimal (as in not cluttered). As I said, I have minminal design experience, but I did put together a mockup that I hope helps.
