Yup digital lizard is my local one. Only problem is no band-it devices or post-it-note peel and stick adhesives.

I called Adeas today. Will decide by Monday Tuesday...? Since I'm not full service I may be better off with limited runs of flyers in full color off my laser printer and more service specific...?

Hello everyone, I've used Gotprint.com in the past and they do awesome work. Their door-hangers have both the adhesive backing and door nob hole so that every door gets one. They also have a graphics department to make you and your business look professional. (Note: We're not affiliated nor do we endorse them.)

That being said, if you're going to door hang, you should definitely have a safety vest and hat to be very visible and obvious to the neighborhood that you're a professional landscaper. This will give you the look and put good old "Grandma Jones" at ease.

We'd be happy to give you a quote on customized hats and vests with your logo. Check us out at www.soduniforms.com to see our selection of apparel and uniforms. Don't forget to use the coupon code LAWNSITE for 20% off until 3/15.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks everyone,

Sure enough today I drove through my service area neighborhoods and saw "some guy" with a orange or lime green saftey vest knocking on doors...waiting for an answer....?

Honestly the high.visibility vest will get attention but once the resident sees that it's just some guy peddling XYZ...that would probably irk me personally if I lived in a development. I'd think..., "what...no gas leak...get OUT".

Totally agree, if you're going to wear a safety vest without your company logo on both the back and left chest, you may as well be anyone. People will have different reactions to your presence, but at least they know you're there to do business. One thing we've always done with our canvassers is send them in pairs. It tends to keep both the canvassers and householders at ease.
