I put out thousands a year found the if u get the kind that have a full circle put just a slit that allows u to slide them on the door handle works much better than the semi circle with a large opening. My first year I got straight up flyers made full page length about three to a page out of card stalk and hole punched them and put a rubber band through it. Probably best for stayig on doors and much cheaper but not sure how it holds up from a professional standpoint

I use postcards and scotch tape personally. I try to tape it on glass only... if there is no glass.. I tape it to the door frame rather than the door. Scotch tape won't harm the paint. Other tapes can have too much glue and cause damage.

Hung door hangers today!

Dstifel those are the kind I put up with the slit in them so I'd like to think the wind wouldn't mess with them to much!

If you haven't purchased your door hangers yet, check out A'Deas Printing. We have different innovative ways to distribute the door hangers. We have our band-it and stick-it products to help keep your piece in view vs. falling/ blowing off in the wind. Both features work really well and would be similar to what you all have been talking about. Our website to check out is www.adeasprinting.com/door-hangers, we also have a few specials going on now that you can check out as well.

What were the doorhangers for Snow removal or lawn service? LOL Sorry it is not funny but to have to think about lawns when snow is on the ground is just crazy.

For lawn service! Yea I agree about the snow on the ground but some people plan early and same wait until last minute. This is only my 2nd year and I'm doing 2 waves of hangers to basically the same area, one just for people to learn who I am and what I offer and another when the season actually starts. I've put in 4 estimates for the first wave which I'm thrilled about considering we got 8" of snow. If I can double that come mowing season I will be happy considering its fairly inexpensive advertising
