bags for flyers

Does anybody put flyers in bags so they can just throw them in the driveway?

If so, how does that work and how much do they run you and where do you get bags?

I put them in bags and hand them on the door handles. I think it makes it look more professional.

putting them in bags and putting it on the door is a good idea, or door hangers, I have seen people just go up with a piece of paper and lay it right down in front of there door!

Where do you get your bags and how much do you pay for them.

I was thinking about tossing them into the driveway like a newspaper. I have a lot of areas I want to hit up and going door to door would be a lot of time.

looks very unprofessional...to some people it could be considered littering, and you miss the opertunity to speak face to face.....

I like the face to face, but I can only get so many houses done like that. I like to both types.

Has anybody tried passing them out like this. Just tossing onto driveway. Seems like you would need to put a rock in the bag to keep it from blowing away.

I found a place where I can get 8000 bags for around 50 bucks. Does that seem pretty good?
