    Hi guys i used to work for a "traditional" lawn care company and we had custom signs that i know we got for less then the local sign companies want to charge me. ( I need signs for my organic fert apps not trad warning signs)

    The signs we used were sticks of platic to which we attached cardboard signs. yes the rain did them in but peeps dont leave them in the lawn for long anyway. the little sign will be free advertising and let people know i was there. How much do you pay for custom lawn signs and where can i get some. Im in canada but am fine with ordering from the states if its still cheaper then the sign stores.

    What kind of signs do you use, how much do u pay, where do u get them?

    A quick note to say ty lawnsite and ty post people, got my signs today from blackburn and my cost is 10 cents per instead of the one dollar per the guys who use the local sign store pay. great free advertising at a low price per application. and thats a custom sign with my logo and phone number not a standard warning sign which is cheaper.

    Try a company by the name of RealGreen Systems. They have software and do custom signs. They even have 8 1/2 X 11 plastic coated signs. I think they are out of Detroit. http://www.realgreen.com/
