    First time purchasing yard signs. Who do you guys recommend for yard signs and postcards/door hangers???????? I'm on a very tight budget.. :-/ And for those who have tried this form of advertising... was it worth every penny? :rolleyes:

    Yard signs will pay for themselves. Got 50 more on order right now. Looking at doing a target mailing, but not sure I want to spend that kind of money.
    Hope this helps.

    All my nice big yard signs got stolen about 7 years ago. Sometimes in as little as 20 mins. I would never buy yard signs again.

    i always put in a yard sign while i am working on a landscape job or patio, ask the owner first if he doesnt mind, and when you are done leave it there until the home owner takes it down or what not.. nothing like putting your stamp on a landscape job you did :) but i would never just go and stick them around on streets.. never works

    For my doorhangers, I looked for a hole-in-the-wall print shop because I knew they would be cheaper. I ended up getting 1,500 doorhangers for $46+tax. I would definately call around to different print shops first.

    Yard signs are good but they do end up disappearing after a few days.
