They are just new outdoor business card holder but a little less money.

I have a company out of china sending me a sample of 4x9 outdoor Brochure Holder. I will get it on Wednesday.
I will check it out and hopfully order them.
My minimum order has to be 1000 so if I do order them I hope they sell.
If they are nice I would be able to retail them for about $12.99 each.

I will keep you updated.

Thanks!
Artie

Artie, I was just thinking.

You could also sell some precut vinyl letters that say take a card like you have in this picture. I bet customers would buy it and you could make a couple of extra bucks on each upsell.

I have been looking into that too.

Steve, How much does people pay for full Color Pair 12 x 24 Manetic signs?

I am looking in to them aswell, do package deals card holder can go on the Magnetic signs.

What do you think?

The cost for a pair Magnetic signs and a pair of Outdoor card holders.
I would sell that package for about $60.

Let me know?

Thanx!
Artie

If you are looking to resell signs and stuff like that, maybe contact one of our fellow forum members who has a business that prints them. Tony@696signs.com

See what he has to say to help you.

I would think that you could sell the vinyl letter of Take a Card as an upsell for like $5.00. Maybe you would pay $.50 per unit or even less?

You might find that it's easier and more profitable to do niche things like this than go and offer sign printing that will take time to format and design and ship and provide customer support.

But let me know what you think.

Looks like a good idea for populated neighborhoods. As for the brochure holders, until you come up with something, what about the ones realtors use? They have the big rectangle ones as well as the tubes for rolled up flyers. Both are made to go on those posts in the yard with screws so some modification might need to be done. I'm just not sure of the usefulness of it for myself. I've never had someone approach my truck or trailer (its wood anyway, hopefully an enclosed painted upgrade next year, as I think its the best way to really have the most professional image) and I don't have an office or anything to display one. One thought just popped in my head somewhere in the middle of that last sentence... Since I'm doing a few short sale/ forclosed/ vacant properties with for sale signs in the yard, maybe I could talk to the realtor about putting one up on the post right under his? Sometimes I wonder why I don't work for NASA. Thats a great idea! Especially when neighbors see horrible looking properties look great all of a sudden, and even if they're not interested in buying, don't we all snoop around to see how much the neighbor's house is selling for? And then POW! There's my info with before/ after pictures of the yard they're looking at. Thanks for kick starting my brain guys!

Also what if you put one of these business card holders on certain realtors for sale signs? Would that be helpful too?
