Rain gauges?

    Everybody likes something free.... it's no secret.

    Here's my idea.... when I have someone in front of me that seems like a potential buyer, I'd like to leave something durable, with my logo and contact info on it (in addition to biz cards & flyer)

    Any biz has frig magnets, note pads, pens, etc. For our line of work, a rain gauge seems to make sense. (customer keeps it and looks at it once a week or better)

    Does anybody here have a good contact to get customized rain gauges made?

    Or.... am I totally off my rocker with this idea?

    Wouldn't work here. Rain? What's that? Actaully we have had several good rins this month but most of the year it never rains. I think it sounds like a novel idea. Years ago when my dad was still running his small bsuiness he got a box full of promotional nail clippers from one of the companies he represented. I still use those today and still remember the name of the company too even though Ronald Reagan's cost cutting caused them to go out of business. Set yourself apart.
