Re: My SMB Forum Business Card

When asked by family or coworkers what my sprinter conversion cost I tell them about $12/pound.

My SMB Forum Business Card

When I park in two parking spots some places it's not because I can't park it. It's because I want someone to ask "why do you park like that"? My answer would be "when you have a $70k+ vehicle you should be able to."

An answer like that could buy you a ruined paint job or some severe tire damage. Not even Mitt 'couple of Cadillacs' Romney is dumb enough to say something like that.

We should all remember that if you go out in public and act like an *******, you run the risk of meeting up with an even bigger *******.

Re: My SMB Forum Business Card

Card looks great Mike. I do get asked the "how much did that cost?" question quite regularly.

Vistaprint is willing to print on the backside. Still inexpensive.

That's the best answer yet. And cheaper the more you pack!

Wow. My SMB is only $5.83 per pound. Maybe I haven't invested enough in my rig. Guess I'd better start spending more money.

No Mac, you just need to buy new instead of used.

It's also that extended bed cut versus the regular bed that makes the difference in price per pound.
