    Does anyone have any suggestions for promotional items that can be used as giveaways? T-shirts & hats are great, but can be expensive and pens or mugs just doen't excite me. I'm looking for something unique, that's specific to our industry. Any ideas would be greatly appreciaited!

    Gloves are a paradox giveaway item. If somebody would use the gloves with your name on it, they wouldn't be hiring you to do their work. If they are hiring you for lawn services, they wouldn't be using the gloves and they would be thrown in the closet. I realize some customers might do some of their own work, and use gloves, AND use your lawn services too.

    Both great ideas! There's nothing like seeing the look on a child's face when the "cool guy on the big red mower" gives him a hat or other small gift. It keeps your name out there and their parents will be loyal customers! I'm looking forward to hearing some more ideas. Thanks guys!

    Where do you get the popcorn, and what is the price?

    Try WWW.RAMSEYPOPCORN.COM OR WWW.PRESTONFARMS.COM both are good companies just a few miles from me. If you call them or e-mail them ask them about the private label and they can print whatever you want on the bag. seems like I gave around seventy five cents for five hundred bags. If you don't give them all away_______________darn good eating.

    I like the rain Gauge idea it ties what you do with who you are
