I'm just starting my home baking business concentrating mainly on cupcakes. I've done all the legal stuff and want to start advertising.
I'm designing a flyer and have one side of it listing my flavours, prices etc. but am stuck on what to put on the front.

I have the business name and contact details on the top, and a lovely photo of some of my cakes on a stand on the bottom right corner.....but nothing in the middle.

Would anyone have ideas or links I could look at please?

I would suggest you go to Constantcontact.com THey have MANY, many, templates, designs and graphics. I used to make all of my customer notices that way and then send through email and make copies for my retail store.

Valkstar, how big is your flyer?

Your lovely photo shouldn't be on the bottom right corner maybe, if it's lovely. It should be the center of attention, the image that pulls the reader in.

And that's what should be in the center?

I hope these are samples that don't belong to you. The first link, although it's nice, isn't too impressive... the first thing you see are spelling errors:
"I HEARED YOUR HAVING A PARTY!!!", should be...
"I HEARD YOU'RE HAVING A PARTY!!!"
(To me, it doesn't matter how pretty it is, it will look more professional without the errors.)

No, they're not my samples. Those are the only ones I could find on my search that I thought could give the OP an idea of what to do.

I'm a graphic designer and I have good spelling and grammar skills. Yes, I noticed the errors, but the OP has her own text to add to her flyer.

I'll PM the OP anyway to see if I can help her directly. It's too hard without seeing what she has on her page.
