    One thing that I am doing this year, that is not discussed very often is flags. They can be cheaper than doorhangers and you can pass them out faster. I will stick them near mailboxes so the client doesn't have to walk far to pick them up. I am going with the florescent lime, 4" x 5" with 15" wire stake. In black print will read my logo, a list of 3 different services and my phone number. The cost is around $55 per 1000. I am guessing in an 8 hour day I could stick probably close to 1000 of these in the ground. Some might consider this trashy, but it's better than throwing plastic bags on peoples lawn or stuffing flyers under windshields.

    www.blackburnflag.com
    It was $54.30 per 1000 for those flags, but also a $17 set up fee (which is waived if I order the same flags later) and $18 for shipping.
