In my many years of youth ministry I have learned that teenagers love to get mail, and if they get mail, they'll probably look at it. They don't actually get all that much sometimes. And when you send them a promotional piece, there has to be a good attention getter on it.
One of my favorites that we used to send out, it took up most of the page, and it said this: If you have any complaints about our group, please explain them fully in the box provided below. The box was about the size of a dime. Yeah, we really want the complaints. Obviously, the complaint box isn't big enough. For most of us, when it comes to gripes, I'm not sure you could make a box big enough.
