    I invested $200 in 3 signs + 1 banner for my trailer advertising for leaf cleanups. They've been up for 3 days, only at my house (so far). Already i've lined up enough work to pay them off several times over. I've acquired 2 new clients for next spring as well. both of which were currently unhappy with their current LCO. They decided they didn't want to give them another red cent, and to try someone new.

    Next spring i'm hitting hard with the advertising!

    I am glad the signs are working for you. I have 50 blank signs and a screen. I am going to screen print my own signs over winter (just one of my winter projects) in prepartion for next spring.

    Congrats!!!

    the signs were definitely expensive. I bought some supplies to make my own signs, I printed up a similar design to what the graphics people made me. Then i printed them on 17x22" paper. I've clear coated them twice so far. another 3-4 coats and they should be just about water proof and ready to go out into the weather.

    this entire season has amazed me. nice setup mike, for me the trailer could be a little longer for more pieces of equipment but then again our game plans may differ.
