On friday night I hit the streets with "Sharkb8" and we got close to 50 signs all together. We mostly hit Overland Park. (Santa Fe, Blackbob, 19th & Strang Line Rd.) Got some of the side streets in there too. Many of the signs were high up on the poles, but we've got a great tool that gets those in a few seconds (I'll attach photos of it to a future post).
Anyways...the most exciting thing was seeing that at a few of the intersections someone had already sharked the signs!!! So we have a shark in the OP area who doesn't know about us yet. I did sticker a few signs (ones that were close to places where cars stop, & close enough that people could read them) so we'll have to see if we get a response here.

>Actually someone posted research on costs of signs to another discussi
The signs probably cost at least $2 each. I found a site (www.premiumgraphicx.com) that's recommended by one spammer. If you're ordering the small size, two colors, and you order 200 signs, you can expect to pay $1.66 each once the $50 setup charge is factored in. When you add in the cost of the sign stakes, that's another 35 cents each. For the larger sized signs (18x24) usually nailed to telephone poles, that's $2.17 each not counting the sign stakes.
That's pretty expensive stuff to be going to the landfill (or to the recycling station, in the case of the metal stakes).

Some of the signs I saw that were on "Steaks" were on metal ones. I later looked more closely and realized that the metal "steaks" were actually welding rods....Just thought that was interesting.
Yes it was great fun..and the funniest thing was that over 80% of the signs we got were up about 10 feet up on the telephone poles. So these sign spammers must have put a lot of work into lugging a ladder around to post those up. And with just 2 swift slices with my new sharking tool they were no more
I'll get detailed info on how to build the stick we used...once I have time to write it all down (and come up with a kewl name for it)
