FAQ

The best yard signs are those that are easily spotted while walking or driving. Some design tricks you can employ while creating your own signages:
  • Make your text big, brief, and legible.
  • Use bold color combinations and full-color graphics.
  • Keep the design simple and avoid clutter.
  • Add borders to increase reading speed.

Our yard signs measure 24 x 18 inches in landscape, which is the standard size for most lawn signs. These are the ideal dimensions to capture people’s attention in busy areas.

Yard signs are often made of corrugated plastic or Coroplast. They are 4mm thick, durable, recyclable, and able to stand up to outdoor elements like rain and sunlight.

Put your yard sign in a highly visible area, preferably with lots of vehicle and foot traffic. Make sure that no bush or tree is blocking your signage. Check local laws, too, to verify if you’re allowed to place signs in public areas. If you created multiple yard signs, place them every 600 feet or so.
