    I want to make a quick flyer to offer all my neighbors a special price for plowing with the effort to get most of the 10-15 homes in my neighborhood. Anybody have any ideas on how to make the flyer look. I want them to know that I live in the neighborhood and that's why they would get this deal. Any ideas would be great!

    For neighbors I have found refrigerator magnets work real good. Most of them already know what I do for a living and having there neighbors phone # handy helps.

    thanks for the idea!! how much does it cost to get magnets made up? as my flyer says i'm not looking to make a living out of it but i figure i have to go out and plow my drive and the parking lot at the hair/tanning salon we own so i might as well do a few drives while i'm out and make a few bucks. i'm not looking for a 8 hour job every 3 inch snowfall. I spend about an hour with travel time doing my own stuff. think it would be worth it to make magnets?

    Any business supply store will sell blank magnets that are sticky on 1 side and magnetic on the other about the size of a business card. I put my business cards on them and hand them to the people I think will use them. Cost about .10 each or less.

    I've used vistaprint.com for b-cards, postcards, etc. Prices and product quality have been very good.

    Donny O.... not that im an expert or anythign but any means, but I just think it sounds corny how you put just wanna make some extra cash ect. Makes you sound like a lowballer and people will think or hes just doin it for extra cash, 10 bucks will do. Ya see where I'm coming from? people dont read that long stuff. Keep it simple. Phone number, list services, name, ect.

    Try the folks at DCP Print. You can find them easily by using Google search. I just got a thousand business card magnets that I was able to design on line for less than $200 shipped.

    I won't plow for anyone that I can see their house from mine. I don't need neighbor problems if something goes wrong. I do plow my moms drive for free.....

    I charge friends a lower rate, but they understand and know they are getting a deal. They also sign an agreement like anyone else.
