This is an example on what you might consider doing for your brochure. I’ve designed it based on the assumption that you would only be providing this to insurance companies and agents, but not for individual clients.
Additionally, keep in mind that the images I’ve used are only what I had on file and none of them used in this example meet the quality requirements for print, although I do have some unedited originals that may come close.
NOTE: The size of this example is not accurate to your 8 1/2 x 18, but it will give you and your designer a decent idea on an option to consider using. If your computer/device doesn’t have a retina screen, some text may appear slightly blurry. The bottom section of (Inside)…”We Provide Storage & Restoration…” will need a little more consideration when the brochure is folded. Also, not all of my design ie. edges, corners, cuts, etc. are perfect, but then again, I’m not a graphic designer.
