    Does anyone have a pic of a "Your windows were cleaned today" style card/slip that they post through the letterbox when the custys are out and know of a cheap online site that will produce them.
    I have done some digging online but they all look too business card like and are too expensive for just a simple notification.
    I have previously had some printed with Vista Print, but the quality is too good (so to speak) and too costly. I am looking for something simple on paper or card but don't really want to do them off myself.

    Hi Jack,
    Mines just says

    Fife window cleaning services
    Your windows were cleaned today
    PayPal info
    Bacs info
    Collection info
    My telephone number

    I know of one cleaner who uses a stamper instead, and I'm personally spending far top much on ink so had thought of vista print.

    Surely its cheaper to do tickets with them,I'm literally doing a few hundred tickets on my printer and that annoying low ink light is on

    I designed ones on vista print and just photocopy them on photo paper from the pound shop and then guillotine them out, it's annoying to do buy I usually stock up with plenty for a few months , takes a couple of hours just

    I print my own but it would be cheaper to just order 5k as leaflets I reckon. Ink isn't cheap

    Mine are quite wordy. They say windows cleaned, how to pay, number, other services I offer.

    Sometimes I stick an offer on like 20% off carpet cleaning for September or free clean of u recommend a friend et . Mix them up every month. Of course there never really deals just my normal prices but does spark a bit of interest

    Only thing that puts me off ordering like 10k clean tickets off vista is what if I change anything IE payment options or phone number.

    Would be stuck with a good quantity for bonfire night right enough
