Sounds about the same price I am looking at.
I am only going to do my church, running about $480 for 52 weeks, with the option to change the add 3 times during the year, for like snow, fall, spring.
I think the return is worth it, maybe not just on the work side, but name recognition. People catching a glimpse of it every week will start to recognize it. Then see it on the truck, doing work, etc.
Thanks for the input.

I have been running an ad in the church bulletin for four years now. Generally, I get one or two jobs annually. This more than pays for the ad and it's good community relations. I volunteer a bit too. I feel good and generate biz!
