you cant winterize a sprinkler system, what are you going to do, dig up all the pipes and wrap them up?? they underground its all fine:) the only thing that sticks above the ground are heads for bushes, and wires to the controller, everything is is underground:)

I know for sure they carry the clean edge at Walmarts and Staples. And I'm sure you'd be able to find the Avery clean edge at other business and paper supply stores.

Where I live (northern Indiana) winterizing is pretty much a must to prevent lines from freezing/breaking. I'm not sure what all is required, but I know they blow all of the lines clear, and I believe they may even put some type of anti-freeze solution in them as well.;)

The scanner messed up the green, it's supposed to be much darker than that.

About your inqiries on winterizing the systems. In areas where there is frost lines and deep freezes, the systems should be winterized by blowing them out with an air compressor. If not, as the water in the pipes freeze, it expands and breaks the pipes, valves, heads, manifold tees, backflow preventer, etc. Just because it's underground does not mean it will protect it. Frostline can go more than 3' in areas.

I've never heard of an anti-freeze solution put in the system. This would cause problems with the valves and probably with the heads as well.

If you have more questions about it, check out some of the posts in the IRRIGATION section of this site.

Sprinkler systems in the northern climates have to be blown out. It's a disaster trying to find the burst lines in the spring.

Here is my current card. However, I'm currently having a new logo designed; so hopefully soon I'll have a new card. I just print these from an Ink-jet on to card-stock and cut them out.

ROTFLMAO

DUUuuude,
it sucks to be green.




It gets pretty cold in Albany NY, where my brother owns a Sprinkler Co, he uses a compressor and blows out the line.
I've asked about the Antifreeze stuff in the past, he said no.

As low as $14 per cut really gets the calls to come in. No iron clad contracts easily sell the deal. Of course, many customers don't qualify for a $14 cut. Works like a charm.

I work on my every now and then. Lately I have been experimenting with using SDS in a logo. I haven't come up with anything I like yet. For now I'm using this one I made with Print Shop. If I ever decide what I like for sure I think I'll take my design to a pro and see if they can tweak it and make it more professional. These are printed on Avery Clean Edge paper I got at Office Depot.

A lot of nice ones. The examples that Team Gopher shows almost looks like something that I would use. My wife, bless her heart, went out and got a ton of some plain old run of the mill cards just after I started my business - I won't bother you with those, but the card below is used by a couple of ex-coworkers of mine. Nice card, but they paid for it.

And as a side note... in this state, if you maintain, service, build, or touch irrigation, you have to have your landscape contractors license. In addition, you can not advertise landscape construction or any form of irrigation without having a license and indicating the license number on your card. Don't know how it is in your states... but do be very careful on what and how you advertise. It could be a costly mistake.

What program you guys using to make your business cards?

Wells

Alpine692003,

Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, but there are cheaper programs available and some are specifically designed to create business cards.

1MajorTom
01-05-2004, 09:07 PM
Ok, let's see if I can explain this.

Go into your album where you have your photos or whatever stored at Digitalstar.com
When you find the image that you want to post here, right click on it. Go down to where it says properties. Click on that.
There you will find the URL. That's what you want to post here. That URL will end in a .jpg format, what you need to post here.
Use the IMG in brackets like you were doing, and it should work fine.
Hope I explained this somewhat good.

BTW, your card looks nice.

The URL you are trying to use is not correct. You are trying to use this one copied right below here.

This is the one you need to use.

Put the www in front there, and don't forget to use the img in the brackets. get rid of the other stuff.
