Advice for Making Lost Dog Fliers
Here's some specific tips you can use to make sure your fliers for a lost dog are noticeable and actually help you find your lost pet.
- Great Headline - The very first thing you want to do is come up with a good headline. While "Lost Dog" is appropriate, you really need to try to come up with something witty (or sad) so that people actually take a moment to stop and read the flier while they're out and about doing their normal business.
- Good Picture - You'll also want to have a recent picture of your dog. While puppy pics are cute, if your dog's older, the picture of them as a puppy is not going to be very helpful when it comes to finding them in the big city. Make sure the dog is the main focus of the picture. Photos with them very small in the background aren't going to work really well.
- Legible Writing - This is a VERY important part of making a flier for a lost dog that will actually work. If you don't write clearly, people aren't going to know what you're looking for or what to do if they have found a dog (or cat). Take your time spelling everything (correctly) or even better, use the computer to print using a font that's easy to read.
- High Quality Ink - You'll want to make sure you buy high quality Ink Cartridges for your printer so that the fliers come out easy to read. It's going to be hard for people to recognize your dog if it prints out like a black and white blob! In all seriousness, make sure you pick good ink so that you're not wasting your time.
Using the tips and techniques above will help you come up with fliers that will help you find your dog quickly - even in a big city like Manhattan. Take the time to make sure you come up with the best fliers possible so that your efforts of posting them around the city actually helps you find your lost pooch. Losing a pet in the Big Apple is NOT fun, but if you work hard on good fliers, you're going to have a better chance of being able to find them - or at least find out what happened. You might also think about adding a reward to help getting people's attention.
