    It may be cheap, ask yourself is this your target area and how many times have you called a service on one of those benches? I prefer flyers.

    Better somehow verify that their signs are of good quality. I wish you well.

    I don't use business cards, people throw them away!! I use pens I have gotten most of my busienss through pens. They cost .18 each and contain all of my business info just like a card. The big diff. is that people keep the pens some times for years. In an old business I would track the pens by ordering diff. colors every time I ran out and would offer a discount for those who showed me a pen at the time of service (auto detailing). On several ocasions I'v had pens from new customers that had gotten the pens 3 years prior. Try to find someone that still has a flyer 3 days later! I use about 3000 pens a year. I hand them out instead of business cards.
