“And the Sign Said…”
Under New Management
Neighborhood Yard Sale!
Right Turn Only
Back in 1971, the song “Signs” was on FM radio almost hourly. The lyrics were catchy: “Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs…” The Five Man Electrical Band was not wrong (and now some of you mature ones are humming the melody). Signs are everywhere.
Think about your daily exposure to print advertising. When you have the opportunity – and without endangering yourself with distracted driving – pay attention during your daily commute or when running errands around town. When you do, you will realize just how many times you view printed signs, large and small. Dozens a day? Multiple dozens?
There’s a reason for repetitive advertising: No matter the state of the US economy, individuals and businesses need signage to attract customers and advertise products and services. Both “Now Open” and “Going Out of Business Sale” are commonly-needed signs for new and established businesses. In brick-and-mortar stores, there are always a barrage of “Clearance” and “20% Off” signs to grab customers’ attention and encourage impulse buying.
Directional signage is also found all around construction sites, for safety and organization. And we have all driven through them – the gauntlet of “Garage Sale” signs assaulting our eyes every weekend. They pepper every corner of suburbia. How else could you find them each Saturday morning if you didn’t have helpful arrows?
You may know the pleasure and pain of taking your kids to the innumerable parties for their schoolmates and teammates. Parents hosting kids’ parties and people having their annual garage sale choose to use lightweight signs they can easily remove after each exhausting event is over. Local politicians and people promoting social causes also choose to use temporary signs, which are perfectly suited for the need since opinions change so frequently.
Businesses Need Temporary Signs
Corrugated plastic signs aren’t just for parties, candidates, and yard sales. More importantly – and more frequently – small and large businesses choose corrugated plastic signs as an easy way to promote their products and services.
With real estate as hot as it is right now, seeing multiple “House For Sale” and “For Sale by Owner” signs are a daily occurrence. What about your beloved lawn guys who save you from mowing your lawn on Saturday mornings? Or your neighborhood pool cleaner keeping your water crystal clear (for your Saturday morning swim while the lawn guys keep the Homeowners’ Association from pestering you)?
Roofers, real estate agents, window cleaners, remodeling contractors, and many other businesses temporarily plant these signs at their customers’ homes to advertise their business and make them stand out from everyone else in the same occupation. As a low-cost and easy option, corrugated signs are an great way to catch attention with eye-catching designs and messages without breaking an advertising budget.
These lightweight, durable, and affordable corrugated plastic signs are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. They are versatile and easily sell themselves when customers realize their value. Sometimes they have to see it to believe it, so have a few of your own signs on display at your business to show how they can be customized and how effective they are when paired with a message or logo.
A few applications for indoor and outdoor advertising or promotions:
- Yard signs for contract businesses (“Roofed With Care By AXAX Roofing”)
