Hey Justin. Like the flyer. Maybe the stump grinding will become a good extra for you. I send all my stumps to a guy I know. He stays very busy grinding. He has a Rayco grinder that he spent over $30,000 on. I think renting is a good idea. Then you can test the waters without making a huge investment.

On a side note, you may want to check your expiration date on your flyer. I think it says 2008 instead of 2009. It would suck printing 1000 of them with a bad exp. date!

That's one reason I name my business Just in Time Yard Services

So that I can use my business name in that kind of sentence and make it play on words

I am so smart... SMRT... DOH !!! (Simpsons) lol

Not sure if you have snow down there but fall usually starts mid september so I'm gonna send them then. Probably Sept 15. It is a monday so it will give them by Oct. 1st/2008 to sign up if they want to save (use that coupon)

Because I am assuming my lawns will be done by mid september so yeah

I got to send about 1250 flyers at 10 cents each.

I got printing cost of 10 cents per flyer. But I'm trying to think of something to print on the other side of the paper.

Maybe advertise for next year ?

I don't know...

I thought i'd see what I could do with your stump grinding flyer.

What do you think?
