    Jodi... I meant to ask you in another post but I can't find it. How much did the post-its cost for the newspapers and what price ranges were offered. Here it's $6,000-12,000 depending on what zones you target. I was just curious if this was a going rate or if it was a rip-off. thanks

    Hi,
    I moved this from the other thread since it was going off topic, and figured I would start the discussion here.

    For prices it depends upon size and color of paper.
    4 x 3 size is $65 per 1,000
    4 x 6 size is $75 per 1,000

    neon color paper is $80 per 1,000 for the 4x3 size
    neon color paper is $85 per 1,000 for the 4.x6 size

    This pricing is for the mininum purchase amount of 15,000 post it notes.

    We've tried the neon paper before, didn't notice an increase fluctuation in calls that year, so we went back to regular paper.

    this year we did 20,000, split in two runs.

    Very interesting. I've done flyers for years but they go into the mail box with all the other junk mail. Toyed with Door Hangers, I like them because they are more visible BUT they do take longer to distribute..and more expensive (paper thickness and cutting)

    I even thought about trying a glue stick on 20lb paper but dismissed it. This Sticky note thing is good idea.

    Shhh.... don't tell anybody.
