Advertise With Custom Yard Signs On The Job

Working on location has its advantages. Contractors that work at different places can advertise their business to neighbors and passersby while they are on the job. The most efficient means of advertising is to put a yard sign on the property where the work is being done. When the job is done, the sign is removed.

The Basics
Yard signs can be ordered from a make your own sign company on the Internet. These companies allow the advertiser to design the layout, then ship the sign to the business. The sign can come pre-fabricated and installed on a board background. The typical yard sign is 1 foot by 2 foot, 2 foot by 3 foot or 1 and a half by 2 foot. The larger the letters, the shorter the message. The lettering should be large enough to read from the roadway. The person designing the sign can experiment and see what works best. More information is better, but only if the potential customer can see it. A simple statement of what the name, phone number and type of business is can earn plenty of attention.

Purpose
Yard signs tell people about goods and services available and what is being installed or performed at that address. They can be put in by the contractor or by the person that lives or works at that address. For example, a carpentry contractor may put up a sign in the yard advertising custom carpentry while he is working at the house. The homeowner may want the neighbors to know that the home is being improved. On the other hand, the homeowner may not care who knows that the kitchen countertops are being completely redone. Because the contractor offers a 10% discount for anyone allowing a plastic yard sign to be erected in the yard during the project, the homeowner may decide the publicity is worth the money saved. What may likely happen is that anyone passing by that knows the person having the work done will call them later and ask how it all worked out. A happy customer is the best referral a company can ask for, and plastic yard signs point out who the clients are that can give an honest referral.

Materials
Yard signs can be made out of plastic or metal. Pre-cut vinyl can be installed on the metal sign. The rectangle is then inserted into a metal or plastic form which is stuck into the ground of the notable home or business. These custom signs can be assembled in various ways before shipping to the customer. People well-versed in vinyl installation need only the letters, adhesive and a paddle to affix the signage to material. For the inexperienced, it may be worth the cost of paying for the rectangle to be adorned with the lettering message before it arrives. The sign’s interior can be quickly and easily inserted into the frame and gently slid into the ground.
