Interested in improving your sales to political campaigns? Then read on for some quick pointers on making the absolute most of some of the most popular election items.
Quality Control: To get the most mileage from your yard signs, look for weatherproof materials such as corrugated plastic that will easily survive a long period of outdoor exposure.
