This is the Ad I'm running in the program for the American and National league Championship program plus the World Series Program. About 800.000 Copies will be printed.
I'm trying to Brand a few of my web sites.
What do you all think of my AD?

I think it's misleading. The photo shows a stretched canvas, while in smaller print below it says rolled.
So how many unhappy customers (because people don't read the details) are going to be contacting you because their little canvas is useless without the stretchers?

What type of "maze" does one have to run through to obtain the "free" shipping? Do they have to visit all three sites, assemble a code, and then return to your site?

Bate and switch?

Yep, that's called "False Advertising", showing a mounted/stretched canvas in the ad, and then later when the customer receives their rolled up print instead of what is featured in the ad, they will NOT be a happy customer, kind of like bate a switch.

I know I would not be very happy, and I'll bet most of your customers will be upset with you.

It's best to be upfront, and show the customer what they will actually be receiving for their $4.95, like on the website listed below, they clearly show what you get and also have up-charge options for mounting like you are featuring in your ad.

Regardless of whatever the "deal" is that ad looks like crap. Sorry, just how I see it. The "washed out" fireworks background with the magic perspective photo and the 30 lines of slanted copy all SCREAM 1986. I almost expected the guy in the photo to be Max Headroom.

Your gonna lose your azz on this deal. Canvas and ink $1 sq ft. Shipping $2. Pissing around with customer supplied photos 15 minutes each $15. Equals a net profit of minus $12

If it's anything like the 98cent banners, the customer will be spending a lot more money than they thought!

BTW, the layout is nothing special but it might work for your target audience.
