    Had ten made up for $130. They look awesome. Only put one out so far on personal driveway for 5 days. Getting amped about putting up some at customers with permission. (Opinions on putting signs were others do) (not on there own property) seems kinda tacky/sleazy/possibly trespassing. Same place realtors put things. Corners. Stops. (Gorilla marketing) thanks

    No. I used a local business. Even if it cost ten times as much. I like having stores in my town though. Thanks

    I just went to find my lot size app. Its 20,000 sq ft flat easy. So at $3 per i should have maybe been 60 per cut. Pretty sure they would have passed. I think i have been bidding way to high. Only selling about 1 in ten +calls! But if i can get a few in this sub i can make it work. Thanks
