Postcards.com, they are amazing, They had a small back-up with printing and fell behind a few days, I emailed them and let them know i had a deadline for when these had to be mailed out on my end, They finished printing them and paid to have them over nighted to me from CA, It was close to 300 bucks out of their pocket to ship them over night to me.

I will now be a fan forever, and will use them for thing i need in the future.

Good to know I will look into them when I have mine printed up.

Also, I'm interested to see how your herculiner holds up. I did the bed of my '99 Chevy with it before I put the EZ Dumper in, and the bed itself is holding up great, but the bedrails on top that actually sees the light of day seems to have faded really bad over the last 2 years. When I raise the dump body I can really tell a difference, the inside of the bed thats usually covered by the dump body is still black like the day I did it but the bed rails are almost gray now.

I was told you could spray the herculiner with something to seal the color in, i didnt do that, I was also told you can hit it up with some armor all to bring the color back if it fades.

Herculiner makes something called the "Uv Protectant". http://www.amazon.com/Peak-Herculine.../dp/B0008DBU0S
Otherwise I have heard of guys spraying a good automotive clear coat over it that takes care of the issue.

cards look good, are they double sided, and how many are you sending out, also I didn't see an offer there, like 20% off any landscaping jobs over 3000 or something like that. I'm no expert in advertising and you seem to be much more established with your business then me, but my advertising guy says a good flyer has an offer, and if you look at subway and dunkin donuts, they always have an offer in their mailers. anyways good luck, let me know how it works for you. I think timing is key and right now and the next 4-5 weeks is key timing to pick up more lawn customers and shrub pruning jobs and mulch jobs, which i assume are what you are really after.

I didn't put any offers on the card, i really don't do that. I just wanted people to see the card and check out my website.

They mailed out today and i allready got a call to go check out a new lawn tomorrow morning, so hopefully that's a good sign and alot more people call me.

It's deff a sign. also yours looked much better then mine, i went cheap and did black and white...mine were also only 300 for 10,000 of them, full 8.5 by 11. but timing is key and right now is the best time for getting new work which reminds me i need send my flyers soon. what are your goals from these flyers another 30-40 mowing accounts?
