    Yes there was a background picture on my flyer. If you want me to send you a scan of the flyer post an email and I will.

    I can do you one better. put all addresses and prices in a computer. Design a flyer with a blank spot, have the flier printed then do a merge and put the flier through your own printer, let the computer fill out the addresses and prices. Then hire day labour to deliver it door to door just like a mail man. I've done this for years with window cleaning. Works great.

    Only if the mailman had already came. Otherwise I put them on the door. By the way door hangers are sturdy but not sturdy enough to stay on the door knob.

    Just a heads up - I believe it's a federal offense to place anything in or on a mailbox for anyone other than the postal carrier. In most cases hanging something from a hook on the post is OK. You just can't mess with the mailbox itself, including the flag.

    According to USPS.com, "no part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items or matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle."

    Yeah that's what I thought that's why I was asking.

    Your marketing strategy teamed up with our 1-800-MOW-MY-LAWN vanity number would do wonders. It is a number they remember.

    I've seen all of the above work for some people.

    I have a new printer coming in in a few weeks that I bought just for printing brochures. I'll have prices up at my website in due time.
