    Very nice, What size did you get them in. Im interested in getting some made but my village is impossible to do anything with, They want me to buy a sign permit and they also want me to buy a solictors permit @ 100 per person to hang door hangers in the village. Crazy

    i actually didnt buy them yet. i only created it online. im thinking something along the lines of 9x14....might get a few bigger ones for commercial properties by main roads but dont like to put large signs on residentials.

    It looks great
    My question is, who's lawn do you put it on.

    1. Weekly cutting customers? where and how long?

    2. Maintenance customers. Like trimming and mulching and how long?

    3. Or would you put it in work and then take it out?

    You could make some and put on plastic stakes like the fert companies and get the neighborhood walkers. They might need to be somewhat waterproof and not easily blown apart.

    Change the ones for main roads. There is too much small print. Plus add a call to action on the signs to get more calls

    both...weekly customers and installs....ideally i would have 2 diff ones where it says property maintained by and something different for installs but its cheaper the more you buy of just one design...would leave up first 2 months in spring time and maybe something similar amount of time after installs

    How much are you paying per sign? I got a quote for $7 per sign.

    I think you need to make your name and number A lot boulder people driving 40mph will not be able to read it.

    I had signs like that before and no one could read them from afar .
