Most of the time around here if there not put up on your own land, some one will take them down....

Pics of Yard Sings

Let us see some examples/or pics of your yard sings!
They are a good tool to put out in the front yard of a job when your doing a land scape install too.

I just ordered 400 of them today just for aerations. 3.00 a piece. Yes they work better than anything, and not by just a little. My signs are printed on both sides but only with one color. You really don't need a lot of color. These are drive by things, remember. They don't sit and read it

I use the real estate signs (black angle iron frames) I supplied the frames and they only cost me $25 each for 3 color (black, silver, and green) I'll post pics soon, I gotta dig them out of all the snow hehehe

Chris

My signs stop people in their tracks, I have no idea why, but for some odd reason, they're laid out good and have a good choice of color....

Randy.....I got my signs done by a local company called Xtreme Graphix. The owner's name is Mike Cotton. He has done my trucks, my signs, and the layouts for my flyers. I'll PM you his number, since I don't beleive that I'm allowed to post it on here. I'll attach pictures of my trucks so you can see what kind of job he does. I apologize in advance if the pictures come out blurry but rest assured I'm very pleased with the work he has done for me and I keep going back to him for all my stuff.

Chris

Here's one of the F-250.....

Here's the Ram.......

Sorry about this one, I didn't realize that you couldn't really see the lettering plus the salt doesn't help much. The logo is on the back door of the truck.
