    i'm having problems deciding how big, my layout design, where to purchase.

    i have a spot in a main road in which i have a realative that lives right next to. who ever drives through town goes this way

    i would like about 3 signs

    i might just set out the signs on the weekends sinse i don't want to get in trouble with the city or state. i might put one at my house too.

    i don't thing this would look good if i went with the 18" X 24" sign
    would it look better going with 24" X 24"

    i got a quote for just the vinyl i would supply the wood and i would do all the labor. the quote was $25 a side. by the time i buy the board and the steaks this is going to be expensive.

    someone point me in the right direction!!:waving:

    here is my layout

    Don't bother with the signs just have some flyers or door hangers printed. This way you can better target your customers.

    We have two high quality signs that say Maintained by... and then all our information. We sometimes ask an account if we can place the sign in their yard for a month and discount their lawn service. We did this on a corner property at a busy intersection and received several calls along with picking up the neighbor's accounts. The investment has definitely paid off.
