    I doubt they even read the thing once they recognized it was for lawn care. There was still snow on the ground. It has been freezing almost everywhere. I feel bad for all the guys who sent them out too early. Lot of wasted money.

    I just dropped off my smallest batch today. It was 65 degrees out hopefully tomorrow is like this too! We will see how it works out soon enough.

    well the good thing is I can afford to re up in the coming weeks if I was too early. I hear you though some people bought 11k now whether or not they sent them all at the same time or not is the real question.

    What size cards did yall send? My first round was the cards i designed in 6.5x9.

    This next batch will be the new card geared towards piking upblawn acccnts that Bob @ Plan-itgraphics did. He said the 6x8 cards are the most popular size. Is the 6x8 card ok for EDDM?

    On most printers sites it does not say it is. However on the USPS site it says 6.5x9 is not right but they work either unless I misunderstood. I would call the PO you will be sending and see what they say. It seems most have different rules than what is out there.

    im glad thisthread is stillgoing. I have had an enourmous amount of call backs from my flier. Almost triple the calls so far from last year. And its still 30 degrees and cold out. Wehave started landscaping/paver jobs with the guys putting in their first 55 hour week. I thank it all to EDDM!

    I plan on sending my mulch cards (all 10k of them) on friday this week. Can wait to go pick up my new truck too. 08 f-250 6.4l diesel supercab.
