    This latest flyer will be 6X9 4 color on both sides Glossy cardstock. Sold the other side to a pool cleaning business 60K flyers and a Custom furniture Builder who wanted 20 K. Lowered my cost in printing. I should have charged them full price for printing instead of half the cost of printing. With the deal they also get free distribution. Of course they jumped all over it. I know I would if someone offered that deal to me.

    How many lawns did you service before you put out those 8000 cards?

    I just got out of the Air Force in January and mowed 17 yards a week last year in missouri on my off duty time.

    I decided I loved mowing grass and got out in January. Got all my clients in Texas this year. Started this March with no clients. Just read for hours During my winter months on here as to how to get started

    Lawn Jockey you may not even be around anymore but when you do bag where do you put the grass clippings?

    When we bag we place the bag at the curb for trash pickup. most of the time a customer is ok with that. in a very rare instance we will haul a bag of clippings when the person is a nice nicenice customer. Then I just put it out on my curb. my wife loves this.
