Who will see the yard signs?
Whether you are "talking" to your neighborhood pedestrians, car or bus passengers passing by, yard signs (or lawn signs) could become an effective way to share messages.
Here are suggestions to help you determine how many signs to order
- Bring awareness: Consider the dimensions of the plaza, the access roads, parking area and traffic flow.
- You might need at least 6 signs + some for neighboring roads. If it is a wide road, consider placing a couple of extra signs on the opposite side. We suggest double sided printing.
- Events: Arrival and departure from events, especially if those occur in large open spaces. Instead of attaching large signs to trees to guide traffic, yard signs are perfect!
- Visit the venue to plan the ideal circuit and design the signs. Expose visitors to the signs at least twice. People hesitate in unknown territory. Good signage means great comfort for visitors.
- We offer several pre-designed arrows.

- Indicate where parking is available.
- One venue, multiple buildings/events: Order lots of signs!
