Default Another way Iíve been making some easy money is by making ďA Frame signs.Ē

Another way I’ve been making some easy money is by making “A Frame signs.” What I do is go to Lowes & buy one piece of plywood, 4’X8” and I have them cut it for me into 4 - 2’X4’ pieces. So I can make 2 signs from 1 piece of plywood. Then I buy some cheap hinges & some white paint. Then I go to my shop & screw two hinges to the top of two boards & paint them white. Takes about 15 minutes.

Then I place a ad on Craigslist in the business section that looks like this:

HEADLINE: 2'X4' SIGN - $65

Large 2'X4' Freestanding A-Frame Sidewalk Sign Board.
Just attach your sign to each side and advertise.
An affordable and effective way to bring people into your business.
Great for restaurants, pubs, video stores, repair shops, jewelry stores and service stations, real estate agents.
Nice, white surface & ready for vinyl lettering, painting or simply adhering posters.
Handmade solid wood construction, metal hinges.
You can search around online and buy them anywhere from $80 to over $200 plus $10 to $20 for shipping.
This One's ONLY $65
Call Jason (509) 939-5683

I don’t want the ad to look like I’m in the business of making signs because it will get flagged. I want it to look like a guy who has a sign he don’t need anymore.

That’s it. I was selling 2 to 6 signs a week. The signs cost around $15 to make so the profit is $50 a sign.

Hope someone can use this info to help out their family.

Thank You,
Jason Hatchet
