    The postcards and door hangers look great! Don't listen to people that say you are expending too much on lettering the truck. Like some people say on here. You are building a brand and you need to adversitise to help build that brand.

    Final proofs. I decided to leave tree planting & removal instead of wood fences.

    I just paid for my order.
    10k postcards bundled in packs of 50 (best option ever)
    5k door hangers.
    Printing and shipping came in at $1390.00 for
    15k awesome looking marketing pieces.
    Came out to $.08/piece for postcards and $.11/piece for door hangers or together as a bundle $.09/piece.

    I had issues with got print last year. They screwed up my order twice. And they don't bundle the cards.

    Krayz - I know we've both been around this site for many years. I have enjoyed following your company and all of the wild things you do, even if I don't comment a ton on all of it or agree with your path. I also have a great respect for your service in the military and law enforcement. You're a "can-do" guy but I will echo the sentiment of what some others are hinting at…

    I guess I'm borne from the "slower, more conservative" school of business thought - grow smart and slow, with a focus (niche) in mind and try not to be a jack of all trades and master of none. But I also understand not everyone is built like me!

    You will be happier this year with a narrowed focus. Honestly, all I ever read in your threads is stuff about going to look at/buy equipment, going to look at/waiting on a bid or a proposal, going to meet with/estimate this or that property. But (correct me if I am wrong) there never seems to be an outcome to any of this. Trucks, vehicle wraps, advertisements, marketing, etc, etc etc…. Bushhogging, property demo, abandoned property maintenance, flood control, irrigation, mowing, landscaping, tree work… there are a million things you are interested in! I just get the vibe you spend a ton of time on a ton of ideas and "stuff" that drag you away from what you really want to do, including the actual work itself. Anyway, I just wanted to echo the "K.I.S.S." advice mentioned earlier here. But I am glad you are hinting at a return to your roots, so to speak. I think you'll be more focused and streamlined in doing so. Hell, I'm no business expert- do what you want, but when it's hard to keep up with you, then you must have a hard time keeping up with yourself! :)

    Best of luck this year! I'll be rooting for you.
