Here is the first one I did, I am going to make them with tri-fold holers on the sides, and Postcard holder on the Front. Here is quick video.

Matt, Thanks for giving me this great idea,

Thats actually a really good idea, Not only could you use it for lawn care services (http://www.localedgelawncare.com) or but construction even other food businesses could advertise. Hmm

Yah! Its funny because, I gave Matt MAKLandscaping like 4 of the Napkin Holders to help him out get him started in his new area.

He called me the next day and said that it would be nice to have these Napkin Holders with a postcard holder attached, and that was it for me. I loved it.

MY MIND WAS GOING CRAZY. Now I am working all types.

Artie,

You must have experimented quite a bit with these napkin holder, have you found any tips that work or don't work when it comes using them and any tips when it comes to how to get them in use somewhere?

The key is, Show your face and make it look like you are trying to help them.
Become a friend to everybody!!! That is the way to do business!!

Artie, in which locations do you feel these would benefit lawn care business owners the most?

Gas Stations get the most traffic, restaurants, and Large Company Break Rooms.

MAKLandscaping Matt bought Tissues that will fit in these holders, and trying to get then in the Doctors Offices.

JKLawnCare - Unfortunately some one has beat you to the jump on practicing with these.

I got these from Artie about two weeks ago and i got home and loaded them up with my full color ads (opposite sides on each side, ill post pics). I put one of his AWESOME Outdoor Card holders on the outside of each of them. I loaded one up with napkins and "dropped" it on a table of a local wing shop on one of there outside tables... The owner/Manager called me and said "That was ballsie... thats awesome tho, feel free to drop off a few more and put them on each table..." I agreed (just waiting for money to get better and im loading up on a few cases). I posted an ad on CraigsList "FREE NAPKINS or TISSUES, if you let me advertise!" in the Business section of CL.
I got an email from a Chiropractor in Port Orange (4miles away) that i could put one in his office if i trim his hedges once (done and in his office). I have gotten two calls off of my business cards already. I dropped one on the counter of a chinese place across the street from where i live (no responses). I still have one with kleenex in my truck waiting for another doctors office (best response so far i see).

Any kind of advertising you need to think K.I.S.S. "Keep It SIMPLE STUPID" - and with this you need to ATTACK your biggest possible demographic. For me in the area i am in, it is Older Couples or Single Mothers/Fathers that dont have the time or drive to do the yard work. NEVER promise something you cant complete for the price given, or offer a service you cant actually complete (dont offer tree trimming if you travel in a compact car).

ANOTHER ITEM ARTIE SELLS - that would be good for a independent FAST FOOD restaurant (like a burger place, or local Mexican place with take out). He has an upright napkin dispencer that you can put two post cards in (with a little trimming) and a card holder on the top, it holds about 3 packages of napkins (1500 roughly). I found a place to put it in but, havent made it there yet.

Matt FACT: More than likely, your customer(s) eat out more than those that do their own lawn care.
