    I bought 600 12" x 18" US flags with 600 "Never Forget" cards from The Flag Company and had business cards printed from VistaPrint I had to cut 2 small slots on the "Never Forget" card that holds my business card. I gave 300 Flags/Business cards out Last Friday at a local Parade and they went over great. I could have given away 2 times as many! I plan on using the rest of them to stick in lawns of local home owners in my service area.

    Any one have any other ides?

    Yes, those are plastic flags. A real estate agent did something like that in a area that I mowed. Most of the people left the flag up for a week or longer.

    Yep they are, that's the only thing I didn't really like about them. Next time I will get nylon or better.
