I use GotPrint.com. Pricing is better than Vista. However, you must be able to create your own brochure, and what not before uploading.

As far as making a flyer, brochure, catalog or business card, I would get with someone who knows how to use photoshop and start creating. You can do a lot in that program and by doing it yourself, you can try several different ideas. I would also suggest looking at brochures and catalogs that you get in the mail. They are made by professionals. Use them to get ideas and suggestions about how to layout your pics and what info you want to put in it. Once you have it drawn out, print a few copies and give it to friends and family and ask for their opinion. Use their opinions to focus your efforts.

I know that this sounds like a lot of work and it is. However, this flyer is the face of your business and you always want to put your best face forward. Once you get the general layout figured out, the next editions get easier as most of the groundwork is done.

This is a postcard that I designed.

Below is a 1 page flyer that I created. This shows both the front and back pages.
