I have a friend in the sign biz. I got 12 of them for around 560 so I would say about 47 each for two sided three color. Next time i am going to get them without the white trim. That was on there from when he did my doors at my shop, because they are tinted glass and the black would not have been easy to read. He said that would cut $8 each off.

I like the white trim - it helps your business name stand out. Nice signs, I hope it brings you plenty of business.

I would say they are well worth it. If one sign brings in one job they have paid for themselfs. So up front it is a good amount of money but in the long ron it is worht it.

Hi Groundcover Solutions,

Your marketing material always looks top notch!

Hi Groundcover Solutions,

That is what we are going for. A uniform look to all of our marketing material, looks more professional that way. I would not consider getting anything of less quality. It is nice to see that people can see that our materials match up and look good. Also the signs are maid with the top end corrugated plastic, and vinyl graphics. they are not screen printed. Much better quality in my opinion. This is why they cost so much per sign.

Are you calling my signs junk? :) I will admit that our are screen printed, but they have proven to hold up just fine. Ours are made with Coroplast signs, and to tell you the truth, I would rather have 50 signs for the price of 7.

You will find out that you will lose them faster then they are worth. Just my opinion.

I am sure your sings are great!! That is not waht i was saying, also if I put a sign in I usualy don't entend to get it back. If it is in my area I might swing by and pick it up. Most of the time I consider it a loss. I just like to have topend stuff, just a personal preferance. I am sure the screen printed ones would have looked just as good. I just feel that these stand out.

I was just messing with you :) But I would concider giving the screen print a try. If you are not planning on getting them, that is a lot of money. Do you only put them on high profit jobs?

I typicaly put them on our residential jobs, we have a min of 10 yards so most residential jobs we do are highend homes. I will put ones out on sites we are working but only for the duration of the project. Once we finish the project they come with us. I am just feeling them out at this point, I am not sure how well they will work for this type of work.

You might consider having smaller ones made and left at the entrance of the home (with permission). This would work really well on commercial jobs though. I have walked into many of restaurants and seen the small signs that read "this landscaping was installed by XYZ company"

If you make them small enough (but still noticeable), and decorative (maybe have them craved into wood, there was a guy on the forums a while back that did this type of work. I have his email still, if you want it. He made me some signs a few years ago). I think residential customers will let you stick one in the mulch bed. I don't know, it was just a thought.

Keep up the good work, and good luck in the future :)
