    Here is a service idea to offer your customers this fall along with their fall clean ups. Why not create an outdoor fall decoration display?

    Use your talents to combine some hay bales, mums, pumpkins and what ever else you can think of to create an outdoor fall decoration display.

    If you have any thoughts on this, what to include in your display design or how to price it, please post it to share with others.

    Included is a post card design both front and back that might help you. Click here for downloadable templates of these designs.

    I did some fall displays last year, and they worked out well. I would like to get more involved this year and have spoken to someone who will give me a good break on prices of the things I need for the displays.

    Team Gopher:
    I think the postcard in your post is really nice, good work!!!!!!

    Hi Premo Services,

    Thanks a lot! What pricing would you suggest others use for fall displays? What did your fall displays consist of?

    I am thinking 75.00-100.00 for a display. You are going to have to get the materials, take them there, place them and come back to pick them up.
    The ones I did last year, I charged less and the customer said they would dispose of stuff, well at the last cleanups in the fall, they were still there and I disposed of them for them. This year it will be set in the price of the display to come back and dispose of them at the late fall cleanup times.

    Hi rats5656,

    Which program are you trying to edit the file in? You should be able to edit it in a graphics program.
