I am looking for a place to buy posting signs made for chemical apps. Where are you guys buying these from? I know I can get generic ones from Lesco, but our state requires that I must also have my business name and phone number (1/4 high block lettering) and do not remove for 24 hours (1/8 high block lettering). I am considering seeing if a local print shop can do this, but wondered if there is a better way.

Thanks

Thanks Kirby. The signs are on order. They're really not much more than the generic Lesco signs and they will look much more proffesional. Just starting in apps this year and still a lot to get accomplished. Work Work Work!

Thanks again

I liked the rigid, at $0.09 cents each I thought that was a very good deal and was big enough for a small lawn sign. I emailed the set-up information, they should call tomorrow. I added a section that listed different lawn apps, such as fungicides, herbicides, fert.... which allows me to circle what service I just did.

The sign company should know, but make sure and check with your state's local pesticide regulations. Each state has actual requirements for the posting flags that dictate size, color, style, etc....

I purchase mine from A.M Leonard http://www.amleo.com
