    I have seen a lot of posts asking how to letter up your truck, what to say, what this what that blah blah blah

    I've had an idea for a long time and done nothing with it........perhaps some of you can make use of it.

    Idea:
    Truck pulling trailer has your info right? Take a banner on the trailer and have different ones that display different messages at different times of the year. Same goes for a truck body/sides. Maybe your logo takes up the 1st 1/2 of your sides and the below takes up the 2nd 1/2 or your logo is on your door and this is on your sides.

    Feb: 'Call us for your spring clean up'
    Apr: 'Ready for some plants'
    Jun: 'Want a patio'
    Aug: 'Ready for some more plants'
    Oct: 'Call us, we'll do your leaves for you'
    Dec: 'Tired of shoveling your driveway'

    -You get the idea, short, sweet and to the point. Makes the person think ahead, hey thats coming up.

    I think it would be a great advertising opportunity and something you don't see. Go get some $ now since I'm not using the idea.
