picframer will become famous soon enough

Timing is everything, My first run went today and our weather is a few weeks behind you, why did I send it today? The home show is this weekend, I was too late into this to get a table so I had to some up with some ideas including the show myself each day with the truck, trailer and one of my larger tractors on the trailer, everything is lettered and ready to go.

Putting flyer's on car windows was a thought however the show organizers will not allow it so, I had shirts and jackets made up and will have my 16 year old daughter & friends, Son and his University friends attend at high traffic times and walk around, they will all have cards on them and if someone asks will receive one. The trailer has holders for flyers with a moderate sized sign saying free flyer, may get in a bot of trouble for that but I can always put it away, if I pay for parking then they can't make me remove the trailer which is all decked out.

I have four separate flyer's/post cards, I believe the response from the first run will be light but I will hit the same areas four times in a 60 day period, my mailing is very, very specific in area, you can do the same using Canada Post, it's cheaper than hiring someone to hand deliver.

As for translating, is your flyer in French or English? Either way if it isn't too long email it for me and I will do it for you, wife is from Montreal and I am from Northern New Brunswick, we all speak English, French and the kids speak Spanish as well, daughter has pretty much mastered Italian and is now working on German, no idea why....

You must be in the Eastern Townships is someone is dropping English only as that would not go well in most areas, and having worked in Montreal with the bank, many would want french only from my experience.

Good Luck
