    everyone talks about flyers, signs, mail box rapeing, word of mouth but what about simple t-shirts. We all have to wear something while we mow and blow so why not spend a little money on a few t-shirts with our company logo on it and wear it while we work? Get a nice light color so we can stay cool and big lettering so people next door know who we are and who to call the cops on. Makes us look like pro's not joe's and keeps us from wasting good clothes.
    just an idea im looking into this week to see how much 5-10 would cost

    we wear t's just to be profession and uniformed, i dont think its really a form of advertisement nor do i recall it being the way we ever got a new customer. likewise, i think the name on the trailer is only good for name recognition, ive never had anyone call and say they sawy the truck/trailer and needed work, we do get "walk ups" often, maybe because we do look very professional

    We've always worn t-shirts with the company logo on them. Here is a pic of one of them We have them printed in White, Navy Blue, Sport Grey, Red, Forest Green, Light Blue and Pink for the ladies. We also do the hoddie sweatshirts, jackets, and beanies.

    If you notice in the pic our older shirts had the company phone number on them and I have since gone away from printing it on the shirts.
