Advertising Bags

I know it seems unprofessional way to advertise ,but where do you get these small bags with your name of your company on it and information and are usually thrown on driveways with sand in it . I often see driveway guys doing it. I was thinking of using these to get large amount of advertisement out to people.

Why waste any more money than you have to on the tackiest form of advertising ever created. Use Glad sammich bags or zip locks.

Throw some weed seeds in the bags instead of sand so that you can gain a spray customer.

Great way to get a customer...throw some litter on their property, lol. It's illegal in most areas and the fines can be really steep. Enforcement varies.

Uline.com has every type of bag you can imagine though, in case you insist on this approach.
