This is a pretty amazing idea too. If you lived near a beach, can you imagine advertising your business by using these sand imprinters?

Isn't this pretty creative?

That is interesting. My only concern is how long the imprint lasts and how often is it redone.

This made me think of another idea for advertising. Banners pulled by aircraft. We have a company that sets up shop at the local airport for the summer. The rates are pretty reasonable. He flies up and down the coastline, probably about 15 miles either side of my home town, so boaters, beach bums, and so on, all see the banners.

I've talked to business owners, mostly restaurants, that hire the company and they all indicate it does help. Customers do mention seeing the banners.

I wonder how much text you can put up on such a banner?

Ideally what would you write? I am guessing one wouldn't have much wiggle room to create too much of a catchy headline.

Somethng like "NO TIME TO MOW? 229-XXXX" or "GRASS TOO LONG? 229-XXXX" might work.

Oh that would be really good! I like those headlines.

Do you have any idea how much that would cost?

When the owner shows up in May I'll ask him about his rates.

Looking forwards to it! It would also be interesting to find out if he ever performed that service for any other lawn care operators.
