How about putting those business card holders on the signs too? Would that help you more?

Oh, heck yeah. Craigslist has been incredible for me - completely the opposite of what I expected. I haven't even run my ad in over 3 weeks because I couldn't keep up with all the inquiries. I still get a call or two a day - proof that people DO use the search on Craigslist, and proof that keywords are important to include in your ad.

You know, we're either both geniuses, or you're just as dumb as I am because I considered doing just that! LOL!

The signs take up enough room as it is though, so I don't know about adding a card holder that I need to worry about too... then again, I could do the "velcro" thing and just add one when it would be most suitable. Hmmm...

Something to consider is, if you redesign your lawn sign in the future, you could have an arrow on it that says take a card and points to your card dispenser. And maybe you could have a special offer on your card only, so you could change the cards in it at different times.

^^^ I'm leaning towards "genius".





Great idea. Those wheels are always turning aren't they?

Lawn sign "action shots". LOL!

I planted the signs while I worked on these customer's lawns...

Note: I didn't eff those hedges up like that! They were already screwed up, and crooked - I just buzzed off the little, scraggly new growth for them as requested!



Sign in the front...




and in the rear...





Exciting stuff, huh?

Yes it is!

You do such great work with your graphics, I was looking at your truck thinking about the potential you could do with a vehicle wrap graphic! Can you imagine that!

Thanks, man.

You know, I was going to do one of those "see thru" graphics on the back window (with the little pinholes that allow you to see out from inside), but I'm already having such a hard time seeing when backing up with my trailer (three layers of tinted glass) that I'm now leaning toward something very basic.
I wanted to do my logo very large and in color on the back. Even if I skip the see thru graphic and go with straight vinyl, it would be even worse because my logo would block a large portion of my rear window.

As for a vehicle wrap... I don't think so. Maybe when this truck becomes a 100% work vehicle, but for now, it's still my daily driver as well.

I am sure whatever you ultimately decide to go with, it's going to look fantastic.
