Also.....I actually decided to go with the POST-IT note idea......

But I just found out that the area I was planning on targeting has a "No Solicitation" policy.....which the Sheriff's department includes any kind of door hanger/POST-IT type advertising.......

That sucks.......any ideas about working around this??? I don't want to break the law.....

Mail it to them. Or get the newspaper to include it for that area. Probably a small price and technically not soliciting just advertising.

My opinion is also that it is technically not soliciting...

But apparently the Sheriff thinks differently....

Maybe I need to look at the law itself....
