Include price or not?

Iím sending out a few mailings to people who wanted hardscape design done last season. These people decided to wait until this coming season to start the project due to budget concerns. To get the juices flowing for them I thought about sending them the 3d image in the mail with a small letter. Iím not sure if I should include some pricing for the coming season or just tell them to call if they are interested.

I can't make up my mind.

people tell me all the time they're going to hold off till whenever.

Just send a letter telling them you survived the winter and to call you

If you send you rendering and pricing without being face to face there is likely an above average chance you will drive by in a few months and see your design implemented and you never got a call. Discussing pricing without being there in person is a real tough sell cause there is in most areas an abundance of guys willing to go door to door with pricing below most. DVS is right a simple contact if interested is appropriate, a call is better.
