"Mulching & Bed Maintenance" is sort of out of place. "Mulching" is apart of landscaping, and bed maintenance is apart of landscape maintenance. It looks good though. I need to get on with getting my post cards designed and ready.

I saw it on some other postcards he has done. I think it goes pretty good spreading mulch and bed weeding/pruning.

Are you going with PLAN-It again?

Yeah I think so. I know how to pick my routes I want, but I'm still trying to figure out the whole process for getting the postcards set up and sent to the post office and all that.

I'm thinking of doing 2500. Comparing Bob's prices to the price sheet my UPS store gave me (I have a mailbox there) of color both sides & glossy.

Plan-it:
Design - $150
Print - $275
Bundling - $30
Mailing @ $.145 x 2500 = $362.5 so $365 roughly.
Total: $670
That seems way too cheap?? My doorhangers were $350 designed, printed, & shipped plus I paid $130 for them to be handed out.

UPS:
For a 6x12 (Idk why their sizes are so off) it's .44 each so = $1100
PLUS design fees. They do specify that they print, bundle, the mailing manifest (w/e that is??) and bundle cover slips for your entire mailing will be completed and your mail pieces will be delivered or shipped to the appropriate Post Offices.

I don't think Bob will send them to the post offices but the ones I'd be sending them from (3) are within 10 miles so that's not a big deal.

I like "Mulching & Bed Maintenance" better because they are two different services it just better, because you're not going to be maintaining the mulch itself.

Also, when you select routes, what do you do if you go slightly over the 5000 or in my case, the 2500 mark, I'm guessing you have to take that as an automatic loss or have to reduce you amount of routes and then you have 70 or so leftover?
