    I am looking for some new marketing ideas other than the conventional door hangers. What are things you have done to improve your business?

    Chloroplast signs. I ordered 50 of these with 3 colors. As soon as weather starts staying warm...out they go...probably around early to mid April.

    I found a guy on eBay that sells 50 for $195...including stakes. There are 18" X 24", one color and both sides printed. You can use you logo and they will design it for you....with no extra fees for this. You can add $85 per color. www.screenart1.com

    I didn't need the stakes, so he took a little bit off. I think these came to a total of $385......$7.70 each. I have a designer that charged me $25 to design this sign. I uploaded the files to Screen Arts. Here is what they look like. I have some actual photos on the camera, but have not downloaded them from the camera yet.

    While in your work truck with your sings on it, get arrested for something really sick so it will make the 6 o clock news and get some free publicity
