Hey everyone (again)! After posting my first attempt at a flier, I got a ton of helpful suggestions on how to clean it up & make it look better.

My old flier:

Some of the feedback I got was:
-Too much going on with the font
-Poster gave off a metal show vibe (rock sign, red color scheme, etc.)
-Too hard to read some of the info
-Change to a standard paper size
-Remove the glow on the text

Here's (http://imgur.com/pbFVr) my new try! How does it look now guys? Thanks again so much for the help!

it is much better, now, bring everything into the middle a bit more

this is a business card template to illustrate but you'll understand why, when you send it for print you will need a "safe" zone for your text, otherwise when when its cut by the guillotine you will lose half your text.

so your background image needs to fill the whole canvas, but your text etc should be with the greed box area and to be extra safe, the red box too. i generally use backgrounds to the edge, graphics/images filling the green and keep all text in the red,

Alright, awesome. I'll have to make the Headline a bit smaller, but I can simply move everything else in a bit.
