Door hangers are one of the most effective advertising products. It’s almost like hand it to your neighbor. Door hangers should have a very clear massage, not too confusing and not too busy. The same way that they are effective they can have reverse result. They should not be annoying. The massage must be presented in one or two different design. Putting the same flyer on neighbor’s door over and over will become annoying and customers will not pay attention to the content any more. It is highly recommended to hire a professional graphic designer who has marketing understanding to represent your massage in a best and effective way.
