forgot to add... if you're not sure about setting up your printer, if you contact BSU they will be able to help. I don't do our posters so can't really give much advice but I know it's reasonably straight forward.
I can also e mail you the template we use for our homing posters to advertise cats who are ready for homing. We use a 2 cat poster for most advertising but do a whole A4 poster for each cat for our shop window and for fayres and events.

Sharon, with the CP ones you can put them in the printer and print on them instead of sticking a label on and they look lovely.

Can you email me some photos and maybe pop in the post a couple of examples of flyers that you like (e.g. the CP HQ ones)?  You have my work address...

A watermark effect would look good and be easy to print, I think.  It would be good to have the same feel as the leaflet, but with less solid yellow.

Hi Christine
You're a Star!!
All we need is a nice A4 or even A5 flyer that i can use for our website downloads (at the moment our branch flyer is the branch leaflet that Niall did)... so perhaps something like that vain.. But sadly it has too much yellow for people to print out in vast quantities.
I saw a lovely poster once from a Cp branch, it has a cat face as a watermark and just a name address, contact details and abit about us.. The idea is that CP HQ do lots of nice flyers but to personalise them we have to put a label on them with our details...and it kind of spoils the effect.. we dont actually have a branch flyer.. the lovely yellow leaflets are still going strong though...

I can send you some photos .. no rush.. But it would be nice to have something we can use..

Fling me the brief and I'll get Niall to have a look at this for you.

Anyone with a bit of flair for design who has abit of time to produce a poster for our branch.. We do have a lovely leaflet but no posters...ideally a A4 with abit of colour that can be printed out and also uploaded to our website for others to print out as well. So not to heavy on the colours.. we do now have a colour lazer printer that has been donated to us...

Doesnt really matter what program is used. CP do bog standard flyers and psoters that you can add in a branch address and contact details but they dont quite have the same impact.. i can supply a few lovely photos.. but the rest is up to you...

Anybody can help.. sadly i just dont have the time and indeed the right software to make a good job..
