That is a very nice offer!

Thanks Steve,

I think it all depends on the business. If its something your starting out and you dont have a truck that is used just for your lawn care business I would start out with Magnets. They are less expensive and if its your family vehicle theres sometime you dont want to have any info on it.

Now if you have a truck just for it then graphix direct to the vehicle all the way. Looks more professional in a customers eyes. Shows that you are a established business that will be around for a long time.

My views are just that my view. I hear the same from lawn guys local but hey I think its what works for you.

Do you find that when lawn care businesses get magnetic signs, do they tend to go with two signs and get everything on them or do they have a separate magnetic sign for their phone number and website to make it stand out more?

I am looking into possibly getting some magnets for my shop truck. I would like some design similar to the one in my signature but realize that may be unrealistic. Is a simple design better since you are kind of limited on space?

I know I would definitely want my Shop name, and telephone # on it.

Something else I thought about is to have a sign made for my tailgate that says something like "Follow me to the best Power Equipment Shop in Boone County!"..... Any ideas?

Thanks,
Eli

Sure thing, Here is something that I threw together. I moved the lettering around a little to make things stand out and grab attention. I like the logo but I think to grab more viewers it needs to stand out a little more for the use on a vehicle. You only have a few seconds to catch the eye of the customer..
