Default How your truck can be your salesman...www.mytakeacard.com

Increase your sales with this addition to your marketing campaign



I have found a fantastic new product that I have to share with the green industry. Pictured to above is a clear plastic business card holder that affixes to your vehicle, store front, signs…you name it.

I received mine a week ago and installed it right away. It went on very easy using adhesive strips. I would recommend that you measure and level where you want it on your vehicle to avoid crooked placement. It also comes with a handy “Take A Card” vinyl graphic to go above or below your holder…I put mine above the holder.

The holders are made from durable plastic and are virtually water proof. They have a strong spring snap down lid that won’t let water in. Trust me we have had sever thunderstorms here in Central Ontario for the past week and my business cards are still bone dry. I would recommend that you take out the cards if you pressure wash your vehicle as the extreme water pressure will cause the flap to lift if you are not careful.

I’ll post a photo to show it on my work truck. I placed the holder on my rear door window for maximum visibility.



The card holder works for you when you are not around. At the jobsite, hardware store, buying groceries, the mall…it will hand out your business card for you 24/7, just as long as you keep it stocked up. I put 10 business cards in mine eight days ago now and refilled it up today…seven were missing, I am very pleased.

These card holders also come in different styles. One with different color lids to stand out. And if you really want an impact the round holder jumps off the page making sure potential clients take your card.

To learn more about these great products and to see what else they offer visit www.mytakeacard.com

Just to let everyone know that this is not a sales pitch and I am not collecting any profits from sales here. This is just my honest opinion about a great product. It still amazes me that the simplest of products are usually the best ideas.

EDIT: About 15 minutes after I posted this I received my first phone call from a woman that took my card while I was shopping yesterday evening. I now think I need another one for the passenger side. Everyone that owns a business needs one of these.
The Lawn Blog rates this product a 5 out of 5.

I'm debating on putting it on the driver or passenger side. Since my side ramp and when I pull up to the side walk, I would imagine putting it on the passenger side would be ideal.

I think you need to get another one for the other side, I should have just sent you two.


Yes I would think, the side that will be on the curb most.

Justin what is taking you so long to put this on your truck? You had this holder for 2 weeks now after bugging Artie for it? LOL

I don't know if you have this on your website or not, but I think it would be great if you had a three pack offer and then have a testimonial and an image from a lawn care business owner on how happy they are that they bought the three pack from you.

You take Paypal ?

I can send you the payment after I collect my money for this month. I hope you don't mind.

If you can ship me one, and I want a tracking number please
