    I was thinking about a lawn sign that I could put up at my customers yards.
    Does anyone havve ny thoughts about this?
    Where can I get 5-6 made?
    Do you folks that use them leave them at your customers yards all day?
    Do you give them a price break if you do?

    I have one in my own yard. I also leave them in garden install yards, 10% off and I leave it there for 60-90 days. Signs on truck and trailer do the job for when we are mowing.

    Now I tell some people 5% off for x amount of days. I build the 5% in the price, they think they are really making out now.

    Paid $20.00 for mine, 2'x18", and if I get 20, I get them for $7.00 each. Also, my 3'x2' sign on trailer was only $20.00 WELL worth it, already paid for itself.
