Here is an example of some decals/stickers we made for a client we have. He wanted to give out buckets of ice melt to his customers but wanted his name and company info on them.

Here is what we did.

We also made "Please keep Covered" and "Use Gloves" stickers for the lids.

When i find that picture i will post it also.

You can re-use them every year too.

Oh! Great idea!

How much should a lawn care operator charge for such items? That is fantastic!

Oh I see that they are complimentary!

You know that would be an amazing way to market too! Can you imagine dropping those off to people in your neighborhood?

What would you suggest Tony? Use it as a marketing tool or sell it?

How much would it cost to create each one?

In this case he is giving them to his curent clients.

You could sell it, or give them out for marketing.

The price is realy dependent on the number ordered, but let for informational sake let say:

15, 5gal $3.25 each
30, 5 gal $$3.00 each

15, 5 quart (the small on pictured above) $2.60 each
30, 5 quart $2.35
50, 5 quart $1.90

These are all for laminated (so they last for years).

If you were selling them and not colection the empty buckets you would want to use UN LAMINATED to keep the cost down.

50, 5 quart UN LAMINATED $1.19

How much would it cost for salt per bucket and for stickers?

I'd like to promote this for you further.

24-48 hours depending if you want laminated or not.
(lol, put it this way if ordered right now they would ship tomorrow.)

Just to be clear this is for just the stickers, you would get whatever buckets you want to use and put them on and fill with salt, ice melt, etc.

Send me an email to tony@amw-graphics.com and let me know how many and your zip and i can give you a total and send them right out.

Well they would want to buy the salt them selfves, shipping would be a killer. 5 gal. will hold about 50lbs i think..somewhere around there.

if they buy balk salt...about $2
buckets...5 gal...$3-$5

Tony,

You know, you probably could sell the buckets and stickers together as a package deal!

Something to consider.

how about magnetic calandars for the frig, with your logo/phone/web on it.

keychains would be another idea.

We do locally sell them...the shipping for 15 5gal is about $30-$40 which is why we dont...the shipping for the stickers by them self is about $6

If people want them though we will ship them.

Yes...i noticed the days of the week too...but it was just a design to test the ability to do this work.

We would add the days before we start selling them.

As far as prices, i will let you know as soon as i do...lol
We are working on it though!

How many do you think you would be wanting?
Like 250, 500, 1000, 10,000?

For sure 4" x 7"

Maybe 2" x 3.5" also, but we haven't tried it that size yet.
