You will want to customize the flyer template by adding your Scout's first name and last name or first-initial-of-last name and your phone number or email address. Feel from to add multiple scouts names and we can split the sales when tallying.   Your customers will include your Scout’s name on their online order form, so a name must be provided to ensure that your Scout gets credit for the sale. 


If you are not comfortable putting your Scout’s name on the flyer, you could instead use a code name/word – just be sure to let us know what it is, so we can match up your Scout’s orders up correctly. Adding a photo of your Scout to the flyer is optional (hidden box left of the name); do so only if you are comfortable with that.

 

You can also send out a link to the ordering site in an email. Personalizing the email is a nice touch. The following link leads to the Square website from which your customers will order and pay for their wreath, garland, spruce tops, door swag, centerpiece and/or wild rice. The flyer includes directions for the site.
