We have talked about this in the past, but how about a road warning sign that says mowers ahead with your phone number and business name on it?

There is good and bad. Bad being the cost like said unless you can get a large quantity or smaller ones so that they do not stand out so much in yards. I have seen some companies around here that use smaller ones and place them in flower beds close to front doors so guest will see the sign but it still does not stick out too much in the yard

I have TWO. I traded a cut for them - I think they would have cost me around $40. (full color, two sided)

I don't think I'd bother with those little ones that are left out. They tend to look trashy in my opinion.

Your truck should be your sign. It requires no extra work for you and its showing all of the time. Put your money into decaling your truck and not in signs.
