HERE IS AN ILLUSTRATION OF WHAT WE PREACH (Your price for this sign will not change)
Opaque or not?
- Go with a standard size!!
- Stick to 3 Line Rule
Customers tend to put as much as information possible on their signs, but the golden rule says: 3 lines make your yard signs effective.
- Upgrade to 2 colors
2 color sign on a short wirestake vs 1 color sign on a long wirestake
2 color sign is a perfect choice if you are trying to have professional signs and have a good price at the same time. Full color signs get to be pricey, while one color signs usually don't have that "professional look" that we try to present.

Are you a local politician who is looking to run for office? If you are, you and your staff may currently be in the process of developing your campaign, if you have yet to already do so. When it comes your political campaign, it is important that you use yard signs to your advantage. In fact, political signs are a vital component of a successful election campaign.
As important as it is to know that political signs can
help your campaign for office, it is important to familiarize yourself
with them and their proper uses. Before your staff runs around town
handing out your campaign signs, there are a few important points that

When relying heavily on political signs, it is important to choose the right sign. You will find that you, literally, have an unlimited number of options. Many politicians choose from standard designs, while others prefer to customize. No matter which option you choose, it is important that your signs are colorful, easy to read, and locally unique. If your signs are unattractive in appearance, unreadable, or too similar to other campaign signs around town, your campaign signs may actually end up causing more harm than good.
Another important point that you will want to take into
consideration is distribution. While many of your supporters will ask
for your yard signs, you and your staff should also distribute them to
voters in or around your community. When doing so, it is important that
you keep location in mind. Ideal locations for campaign signs are busy
roadways, namely ones where the speed limit is at a low to medium speed.
You will also want to target walkers, as well as drivers, as they are
more likely to stop and thoroughly examine your signs. That is why your
political signs should be distributed to homeowners and business owners
that live near schools and parks.
Yard signs are not aimed at the party faithful but
rather the undecided swing voters who often determine elections. The
campaigns are appealing to their desire to be on the winning team. The
more signs we see for a particular candidate, the more support we assume
that candidate has.
"If I see a lot of the yard signs I think, 'Well, someone else thinks they're doing the right thing, too,'" said a woman in St. Paul.
There are so many yard signs along the streets these
days, I'm not sure if there is a run on the real estate market or just
run-on sentences regarding my voting options.
