Yard Signs: Promote Effectively in Your Community

Whether you’re renting a property, advertising your local business, or promoting a political candidate, you can quickly spread the word around the neighborhood with the help of yard signs. Affordable and easy to set up, yard signs are the perfect promotional tool you can use virtually anywhere. From street corners, worksites, festivals, and outdoor events—these custom signs are versatile and can be left outdoors for an extended period.

At NextDayFlyers, you can print custom yard signs for the best price and get them delivered in just three (3) business days. Choose from three (3) standard sizes: 12” x 18”, 12” x 24”, and 18” x 24”. All our custom lawn signs are made from sturdy 4 mm corrugated plastic (coroplast) that can withstand any type of weather. You can also add optional H-wire stands that easily slide into the corrugated flutes for quick assembly and take-down.


Situations That Call for Custom Yard Signs

Yard signs are one of the most versatile forms of outdoor signage. If you are in any doubt whether an event or activity would be an appropriate time and place for custom yard signs, read on for some scenarios where their effectiveness as a promotional tool is in full display:

Real Estate Yard Signs
Got an open house? A quick way to tell the neighborhood and passing traffic about your open house is to put your details on custom lawn signs displayed by the roadside and in the yard of the property.

Work Site Yard Signs
Gardeners, pavers, and landscapers can showcase their work with a site sign. This generates a lot of interest from neighbors and passers-by.

Grand Opening and Sale Yard Signs
Place a few yard signs down the street to let people know that you’re having a sale or opening a new business. Place lawn signs all over town to really get the word out.

Moving Yard Signs
Changing locations is problematic for businesses. Business owners can avoid losing a lot of business by putting up “We’ve Moved” signs at their old location to guide them to their new place of business.

Festival and Event Directions
Inform visitors about your event and use them to guide people to your specific location. Create a series of directional lawn signs and place them on the route to your event. This is especially useful in big locations such as college campuses.

Political Campaign Yard Signs
If you have strong opinions on who should be elected as governor, school superintendent, mayor, or president then show your support with a yard sign.

Sports Team Yard Signs
For local softball leagues, soccer leagues, football try-outs, and other sports sign-ups, a series of roadside signs will ensure your rosters are full!

Charity Fundraising Yard Signs
If you are supporting a charity fundraising event, prop up attention-grabbing lawn signs at key intersections to inform commuters about your cause.

Yard Signs for Garage and Estate Sales
Don’t rely on a flimsy piece of cardboard with marker scrawled all over it. Get more people to your sale with a clear and precise custom sign. Put one at the end of your road and wait for neighbors to arrive!

Company Yard Signs
Launch your brand or promote new products by installing large yard signs in front of your office. This helps create awareness among passersby and current customers.


Design Effective Yard Signs with NextDayFlyers

Yard signs are popular because they can be used by any business regardless of industry. But how do you ensure that your signs get the attention they deserve? Here are some quick tips to help you make the most of yard sign printing.

Keep your message simple. The shorter, the better. The average person only takes less than 10 seconds to scan or read a sign before they divert their attention, so you need a quick message that stands out. Save the details for another type of promotion.

Use the right fonts and colors. You can distinguish important parts of your message with appropriate typography and colors. Be sure it’s eye-catching, but still legible even from afar. Try to stick to a maximum of two fonts and three colors.

Always include a call to action. Potential customers need to know what’s the next step. Ask them to visit your website, call for inquiries, vote, or visit your store.

Our yard signs are ready for shipping in just three (3) business days. You can get an estimated delivery date using the order calculator by providing your ZIP code. This lets the website automatically generate shipping options and costs for you to choose from.

What are yard signs made of?
Our custom yard signs are made of waterproof 4 mm corrugated plastic while the optional H-wire stands are made of galvanized metal.

How much does it cost to print yard signs?
This depends on your order’s size, printing specs, and quantity. A double-sided, size 12” x 24” yard sign with standard 9-gauge H-wire costs about $16.95. You can get an instant quote using the order calculator by selecting your preferred printing specs from the dropdown options.

What are the free print templates for?
We offer free blank print templates you can download and use as a guide for your design. We provide them so you can lay out your artwork and ensure the correct bleed, trim, and safety lines. You can get these from the Templates tab. Just select your preferred size and file format.

Can I hang the yard signs instead of staking them to the ground?
Yes, you can. If there’s no soft ground where you can insert an H-wire, you can use grommets instead to hang your yard signs. Grommets are add-ons to your banner that you can have in two ways: 1) two on top, or 2) two on each corner.

Do you offer rush printing?
We currently do not have expedited printing. Yard signs have a printing turnaround of three (3) business days, no matter how many you order. This means that even if you order 50, you can be sure that your signs are printed within that period.
