    At home depot they have 50 packs that you peel the sticker and stick your card to them. They work and look pretty good. I sent 1 with each proposal this year. Just becareful sending them as they aren't light. Buy the way, they are 10 bucks a pack.

    I havent used them yet, But I know a guy who owns a couple of franchised mold and water damage, and carpet cleaning businesses and he has used them for years. He says its really cool going in to a house and seeing them on the fridge.

    They give the customer to keep YOUR name hanging around.

    He buys in LARGE bulk so he gets the for like .20 each still not cheap. But the sticker idea from Home Depot sound cool, if they stay on the magnet

    I used these last year, and will be using them again this year. You can get them at Office Max, and Staples too I think. Its not a bad idea at all, I usually give them to all my customers when they sign up or include it in invoices to any one time landscaping jobs. I have had a some people thank me for them. I think it is more convenient for people to just stick it on their fridge and know if they ever need you they know where to look, and they dont have to try to see if it is their wallet or purse...most business cards can get lost pretty easily. The cards stick on their really good, the only hard part is centering it on there, also even if you get in the magnet perfectly, the business card is a tiny tiny bit bigger than area for you to put it in. But when done right its not too noticable.

    That's actually what I did yesterday. Well what I had my kids do. I told them it was time for arts and crafts, so 600 cards later they were done. TAlk about cheap labor. I posted this in the business managment section. Talk about some negative response. It seems some people were wanting to get into the great mailbox debate. That ain't what it was all about.
