    17, 18. 1, truck graphics plus postcard, 2, truck graphics only. love truck graphics, brings more density to neighborhoods we are in.

    advice to all you guys- order what you want for the next 3 weeks now. I am seeing some outages of several key items like bows, clear mini's, etc. Dara is switching around sources since she reps several companies. but as the good deals run out of stuff, prices go up. I always think that hdy's fist out of stock list also represents what they did not get in this year, or had very little left and are discontinuing those items. still, some items on the list were surprising.

    and anything ordered now through next Tuesday or so will probably show up next week. ordering after that and shipping the entire week of thanksgiving is ridiculous and rarely works. so think about how many c9's you will probably sell through the Wednesday after thanksgiving, or minis, or whatever, and order and stock accordingly.

    My suppliers are running out too, huge run on c-7 and c-9 incandescent clear this year. My LED supplier is down to 3500 sets as of 2pm yesterday, I ordered two more case just in case, even if I don't go through all 7 I have, I would rather sit on some than have to say no.

    23, 24. postcard, postcard. man, 4 days without a close. I can always tell when my competition is advertising hard and I am not. they gobble all the leads and closes. but I needed a breath. I am kinda glad. got lots of fixes done and paperwork caught up. materials ordered for post Thanksgiving work not closed yet. 10000 more postcards going out total this week and next.

    had 2 customers call me today that we did not do last year but want up this year. so can't really call them new customers, but always glad for the guys to have stuff to do and make money.
