    Has anyone used the 18inx24in yard signs with your company name and # on them? Have you had any luck getting new customers from them? I was thinking about getting a few and putting them in some of my lawns, if the customer will allow me to. Just want to know if they work?

    We had an agreement with a association (high end area) to cut a small grass area outside their pool tennis in exchange for advertising, the 2 signs were nice too ($175), but were trashed the very first weekend...

    We've layed out aeration signs before as well, but no dice.

    On a private lot, thats well maintained, at the right time of season...I'd do it again.

    I have 4 in each truck..full color logo, phone number, and a few service bullets. On installs, they go in the yard the day before we start and stay a week after completion. I have different signs for hydroseeding that are basically our logo and phone number, and occassionally on a high traffic area, we will place a sign out by a busy road when mowing or spraying.

    Here is a guy that will make them for a very good price. You can get 50 made, double-sided and one color for $195...not extra charges for you logo and that price includes stakes. If you want somebody to design them, I have found a guy that will do it cheap and give it to in the required .eps format. The first link is the printer and the second is the email of the designer.

    I am personally going to have 50 made with 3 colors. I will uplaod a pic what I get the final copy tomorrow or if you give me your email address (through a PM) I can upload a copy of the .pdf format tonight. It's too large to add here and I dont have a pdf editor to resize the image.

    Matt, that is an awesome price..We pay $ 22.00 per sign($ 18.00 each 2 years ago), double sided with stakes. Our signs have 6 colors on them, how much extra does that guy charge for 5 more colors?

    $425.....This is based on 50 signs....$195 for one color and $85 for each additional color. For 25 signs it's $165 and $75 for each additional color. For no more money than it is...I would definetely go with 50 signs. There are price breaks for the more you purchase...like most anything. Both guys I listed above are very quick to get back with you via email.

    Ok...here are the signs I just ordered. Not the actual sign, but what they will look like anyway.
