I just ordered some large magnets from vista print. they are about 5" by 4". I got 1000 of them for $285 including shipping. I like them because a lot of people have metal doors so you can just stick them to front doors. The home owners then take them off the door and and stick them to their fridge. Here is the flyer magnet I used. It's in pdf form.

I can't thank you enough. I called today and they hadn't gone to print. I am uploading the corrected one now. the only change is i switched shurb to shrub. Thanks again you saved me.

My company prints doorhangers.

Tell me the quantity that you desire, and your zip code, and I will do my best to help you.

As far as printing on one side versus two...

Think of it this way-
In most direct marketing efforts, one of your largest expenses is DELIVERY. I don't care if it is a doorhanger, a postcard, or a sales letter.

Most guys I know, spend between $.10-$.15 per door hanger delivered. Maybe you do it yourself, or have a family member help, but time still equals money.

So why not spend a little more, print on two sides, and give your prospect twice as much information, and twice as many benefits in calling you?

Too many marketers only pay attention to what they spend versus, what is cost to gain a new customer or generate a sale.

On another thought... Why not consider a 6" by 9" postcard, and do a saturation mailing to zip code you want to grow your business?

The cost is close to what you would pay for a doorhanger campaign, and I believe that they are more successful.

That is my 2 cents,

Brandon

my problem with mailing to a zip code is i dont target the house that i want to get. with the doorhangers i simply ride by the house say "oo id like to get that one" but the hanger on the door and go down the road. good idea about the post cards though. quantity of 1000-1500 zip code 21660

Justin,

Yes, door hangers are a great for that on-the-fly type of marketing.

The zip 21660, barely has 1000 residents to mail to, which makes it more expensive.

You would be looking at around $.61/piece to print, and mail to.

In direct mail, quantity is king.

The same campaign sent to 5,000 houses would get closer to $.40 per piece, and around $.33 when sent to 10,000 homes.

For what it is worth,

Brandon

I put out around 300 door hangers last season, and only got one job from it. Now that job did pay for the hangers and my time putting them out, so I guess it was worth it, but I guess I was expecting a lot more to come from these. I am still debating if I am going to do that, or do a mass mailing. Does anyone know if you do a mass mailing to a zip code, is there a company that would make them up and send them out, or do you have to go to the post office to get them sent out? Thanks.

I found http://www.lawncareprinting.com and tried them. I ordered this week, I haven't gotten my doorhangers yet, but the prices were better than anywhere else i found and I didn't have to design it because they offered free design.

Has anyone else tried them?

I'm counting the days till I receive them.

I've been using the magnets for about 5 years. They seem to work good. I get calls throughout the whole year because they saved mine and stuck it on the fridge. Past years I have made my own by having them printed on card stock and then sticking on the craft strip magnets. This year it made more since to get them all done. I also have several brochures made up for high end clients and businesses. I attached some pictures of them below. They cost about $4 each and I make them myself with a binding machine. They have a clear plastic cover, a blue back, bond type edge and are done on photo paper.

I have been trying to decide on what exactly I want to do for my marketing. I've read about direct mail and doorhangers, but I'm wondering if I should try both if I can get them done at a good price. Does anyone have any wisdom on this?

Sonscapes,

I am the Company :)

And, yes, you would simply supply me with a list of zip codes you would like to target. We can then provide you with the number of houses , the average household income, and average age in each zip code!

Then you can pick the zip code you want to mail to.

We can also help you mail in a radius, like a 3 mile circle around your business.

The other options is to target a certain demographic, say golfers over the age of 55. This is more expensive, but often time the best way to target your "real" customer type.

Sorry for the delayed response, and I hope it help!

I shopped around and had doorhangersetc.com and they designed, printed and shipped 5,000 doorhangers for $200.00 which I think is a steal. They were high quality and I was really impressed with them. Their website doesnt look like much, but I would highly recommend them.
