Woulda Coulda Shoulda

If You Don’t Like My Prices, Here’s a Box of Crayons

A sign pro offers a facetious alternative to a customer expecting a rock-bottom quote.




Things you wanted to say to frustrating clients, but didn’t.

“I’ll provide you with an old paper bag and a box of crayons.”

To the customer who balked at my price and informed me what they thought a yard sign ought to cost. For that price they might just be able to afford to make their own sign.

Woulda Coulda Shouldas are collected from the Signs of the Times Brain Squad and shared anonymously.

What’s the Brain Squad?

By taking one five-minute survey each month, you will receive access to some of the industry’s freshest data on sales — including your fellow members’ comments on what’s selling and what isn’t — and can make your voice heard on key issues affecting the sign industry.
