    Well for those looking to print some fliers and want to get the best out of them this is what you should do.

    On one side print your advertisement and hope people trow away your fliers on the floor, why? because on the other side of the flier you gota print a paper money note on it. that way people will actually think its money and pick it up.

    This has been beaten to death by many illegitimate companies looking to scam people. Consumers are getting smarter.

    Here's what the government says ya gotta do if you're printing images of U.S. currency:

    Reproduction of US currency in color or black and white is permitted as long as the reproductions are less than three-fourths OR more than one and one-half the size of the original and one-sided. Size restrictions apply whether using the whole or a portion of any bill. Additionally, care must be taken to dispose of negatives, scans, or other materials used in creating the reproductions.
    Authority: 18 UNITED STATES CODE; 504: Treasury Directive Number 15-56 FR 48539 (September 15,1993) 411.1 Color illustrations authorized. (a) Notwithstanding any provision of chapter 25 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, authority is hereby given for the printing, publishing or importation, or the making or importation of the necessary plates or items for such printing or publication, of color illustrations of U.S. currency provided that:
    1. The illustration must be of a size less than three-fourths or more than one and one-half, in linear dimension, of each part of any matter so illustrated;
    2. The illustration must be one sided; and
    3. All negatives, plates, digitized storage medium, graphic files, magnetic medium, optical storage devices, and any other thing used in the making of the illustration that contain an image of the illustration or any part thereof shall be destroyed and or deleted or erased after their final use in accordance with this section.
    There's probably even more rules than that, but that's what I ran across. I knew this already from my previous life of doing design in a print shop.
