    This is one of my street signs I had made for Aeration advertising. They are 24 by 24 coroplast and go into the ground on H frame stakes. I was supposed to get them double sided, but they screwed up the order twice and gave me this batch for free. I have a batch of double sided signs coming. I placed them around the area at intersections, on and off ramps, and highly visible areas. Calls for estimates have finally started to roll in, and from what I can tell these signs are what are pulling in the calls. I've got a radio ad, handed out fliers, and these signs for aeration advertising. These guys seem to doing the job.

    I personally thought they turned out really well. They stand out and grab your attention along the side of the road. I purchased them from a company I work for in the winter, they do directional signs for new real estate, as well as commercial signs like these. I've got a design on order for Fall Leaf Clean Up as well.

    :D

    It was supposed to say "Aeration with TJ's Lawn Care" but they messed that up, as well. They spelled Aeration wrong the first time, too. Areation?

    :D

    I too am interested in how much you paid for those signs?

    I am going to make my own. I was going to try and get them finished befroe aeration and overseeding season got here, but just running out of time. I have received my H stakes, 50 cloroplast signs and my screen, but now I am going to make it my winter project.

    I got a big discount because I work for the company in the winter. I don't really feel that I should say what I paid, but I think they normally run at about $12 per sign for 50. That includes H stakes. The company will design for you, and they ship all over. If people are interested, drop me an email and I will put you in touch. I don't want to post phone #s or email here, I think it's against the rules. These things are really bringing in the business. I got 12 calls today alone.

    Your lucky they only mis-spelled aeration slightly the first time..... guy I used to work for had card printed... told the guy what he wanted listed...... card said:

    Mowing, clean-ups, dethatching, air raiding............

    OOPS!
