I see alot of generic brochures, where the same service is using the same template from Vista or Microsoft. I think a brochure like your business cards should be unique. I would advise sitting down with a local printer or marketing firm from your area.
I use a program called Art Explosion Publisher Pro that you can buy at Sam's Club. The template is all set up for making a brochure. I do a lot with design and know some designers so making it my self has been pretty easy. Its not the same as having a designer do the work but it is cheaper. I don't like using the same templates as Vista as everyone looks the same. This is part of the reason I can stand out more from the competition. All my materials look the same from web site to business card to brochures. Then I upload it to Vista for them to print. If I only need a few printed I them print them on my laser printer.
