You’re probably familiar with yard signs for real estate, garage sales, and fundraisers. However, yard signs come in handy for lots of other purposes, especially when they’re custom-made.
- Yard signs can help you promote your business in multiple ways.
- Yard signs can tell the world about things that are important to you.
- Yard signs can bring beauty to your world.
Custom Yard Signs for Businesses
If you run a home-based business, your front lawn may be valuable real estate for advertising. An attention-grabbing yard sign with your website or phone number on it can garner a great deal of attention as your neighbors, visitors, and other people drive by. Before you have your signs printed up, though, check to make sure you aren’t running afoul of any local ordinances or homeowners’ association rules. If it doesn’t break any rules, you might strategically place signs at intersections and other high traffic points nearby. As a bonus, it’s easy to move a yard sign when you want to try a new location.
Custom Yard Signs Using a QR Code
One unique spin on using a yard sign to advertise your business is to use a QR code on the sign. It creates an air of mystery, and people will scan the code just to see where it leads. When programmed correctly, the QR code takes visitors to your website or a social media location for more information about your company.
Custom Yard Signs to Support Charities
Your community is probably full of nonprofit organizations doing great work with children, animals, the elderly, and many more great causes. A custom outdoor sign with the charity’s logo
and website can be a great way to spread the word about the great work the organization does. You want to keep the information on the sign clear, brief, and memorable as it directs readers to another source, such as a social media page or a website, for more details. Volunteers, staff members, and other supporters might agree to put up the signs around their neighborhoods. Aim for the busiest locations you can find and be mindful of local ordinances related to custom outdoor signs.
Custom Yard Signs for Political Campaigns
Whether you’re running for office yourself, advocating for a piece of legislation, or supporting a candidate you feel strongly about, putting out a yard sign is an excellent way to get the word out to voters. Yard signs create name recognition, which carries through to the ballot box. The name of the candidate or title of the legislation is the most critical part of the sign, but if space allows, you can add a photo or campaign slogan as well.
Custom Yard Signs for Fundraisers
Schools, children’s organizations, religious institutions, and nonprofit organizations all lean heavily on their annual fundraising efforts. A yard sign is a great way to let the neighborhood know that cookies, raffle tickets, or event tickets are available. You can list a phone number or email address for customers to place an order. The more signs you put out and the busier the area, the more traffic you’re likely to see.
Custom Yard Signs for Real Estate
Real estate signs are probably the most familiar yard placards. Their longevity in the industry is a testament to how effectively they get the word out about properties for sale or rent. The familiarity is a double-edged sword, though. Because they’re so common, people often overlook them. If you’re a realtor, you want to choose a distinctive sign in shape and color. Consider giving it a catchy tagline to give the reader something to remember. Using a sign with a container for brochures is another way to draw attention.
Custom Yard Signs for Celebrations
Birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations are just a few of the special occasions you can commemorate with a custom yard sign. If the party is at your place, a sign makes it easy for guests to know they’re in the right place. If the directions are complicated, you may want to use multiple signs along the route to lead people to the right place. Even if there is no party to attend, a custom yard sign can show your graduates how proud you are of them or wish someone a very public happy birthday.
Custom Yard Signs to Share Job Opportunities
In an era of massive online job boards and government listings, it can be challenging for small employers to get the word out about job opportunities. A yard sign might just be the thing to draw attention to the vacancy. If you have room on the sign, the critical pieces of information are title and pay rate; add work schedule if you have space for it. Using a yard sign to advertise a job opening has the added benefit of promoting the name of your business to potential customers and job seekers.
Custom Yard Signs for Big Events
Business conferences, concerts, plays, and other significant events can use yard signs in many ways. When displayed in advance, yard signs can help you sell tickets. On the day of the event, they can provide directions to parking, restrooms, concessions, and more. You can also use yard signs to mark restricted areas where visitors should not enter.
Custom Yard Signs to Brighten Someone’s Day
Imagine your best friend’s surprise when he or she wakes up on the morning of a milestone birthday and finds a custom yard sign wishing for the happiest of days. Signs can cheer up someone who is stuck at home recovering from surgery or illness, welcome home new babies, and congratulate graduates. With custom outdoor signage, your imagination is the only limit to how you can use it.
Custom Yard Signs to Let Customers Know You’re Back in Business
Almost every kind of business experienced some level of shutdown or change in operation due to the pandemic. When you’re ready to reopen, you want to be sure your customers know it right away. Posting a yard sign is an excellent way to spread the word about the reopening.
Custom Yard Signs to Say Thank You to Heroes
Healthcare workers and first responders are some of the heroes of the pandemic. You can use a custom yard sign to say thank you to these frontline workers. Ask the administration of the local hospital or health department if you can put signs on display there. It may seem to be a small thing, but it’s encouraging and can brighten a difficult day.
Custom Yard Signs to Communicate Information
You may have rules for your home or business that you need to communicate to guests before they enter. For example, you may want to let visitors know that masks are required or that pets are on the premises. A custom yard sign is ideal for sharing this kind of information.
Custom Yard Signs as Decoration
Yard signs don’t have to provide information. Sometimes, they’re just pretty to look at and entertaining. Signs with colorful butterflies or flowers can brighten up your garden, welcome visitors, or celebrate a holiday. You can even have a custom yard sign printed with a favorite saying or Bible verse in a pretty font.
