:-( :lol:
I need to write more stuff in it? Wouldn't be more crowded?
I am not sure if I need to add more informations as well and how much informations do I post without making my flyer boring!
I will try to make the writing bigger and I will post it in a second! :smile:

It's already somewhat better to read, but still not optimal.
As viewer I wanna read the info immediately, I think it's the background that makes it a bit hard to see the text.
Personally I'd remove the swirly background on the right top corner. Also put the tagline (balloon decor....) more centered since all elements are centered (or come with something different of course). Unless the tagline is part of logo that has to be used this way.
Btw the letters J and C are kinda hard to recognize the way they're used right now (if ie the J would be the first letter of a word I could connect it better as letter J)
How big is the whole flyer gonna be? You have a clue how the photos will look like in the printed version? Do the photos give the right info of your business or what you'd like to communicate?
You mention that your preferable target is schools, perhaps you can stress that a bit more in your text? And I dunno how it works in the USA but unless you have specific plans, is it an idea to start with mentioning English and then Arabic and French as serving languages?
Perhaps some more questions later, but for now is enough :-)

Thank you Wazowski, I will try my best to figure out something else, I appreciate that a lot! :-D

You are so right about writing English first but I thought because my mane language is Lebanese "Arabic" I would post it first but yes, you are totally right, it is more respectful because I live in the US and I am a citizen after all to use English first.

I need to change the font then for the top writing.
If you go to my page and read the info you will know a little more about my work.
I do Face Painting, Balloons Decoration, my target is schools because I can find so many people there interested in Birthday parties and so.
I never saw if the pictures will be good when printed, I think not sure yet that the paper will be A4, maybe B&W but the original sent will be colored, schools don't use colors in my knowledge.

Thank you again for pointing things out specially the language thing! @};-

Well, as I said I dont know how it works in the USA and if it's up to me you dont have to do it out of respect for a country (for example, you can start with Arabic for the fact that you want to offer your goods to mostly arabic schools in the USA, or indeed for the fact to show your background).
I dont say it's good or bad with what language you started, but think about why you'd start with what language first. Same with the rest of the flyer: who is your target (I guess widespread, but with a certain focus on schools -and then what schools?) and how to communicate to them. What you want to show from yourself to your future customers and how to convince that you can offer them something great.
Pretty easy said, no? ;)
