Yard Signs: What and how to order, and what to expect along the way

Yard Signs have been a campaign staple since the beginning of democracy. They’re one of the first, most important ways you announce your campaign to the community. When you order signs from Victory Enterprises, you’re assured high-quality work at an affordable price that will help your campaign hit the ground running.

Step 1: Determine Your Budget

At the beginning of your campaign, you should have a sense of how much money you plan to raise. Determine how much you are able to spend on each element of your campaign. Signs should be between 5-10% of your overall budget.

Step 2: Determine Specs

Poster board signs are a thick form of waterproof paper. They are folded and sealed along the edges to form a double-sided yard sign that slides over a U-frame.
Bag signs are made from polyethylene film. They also slide over a U-frame to create a double-sided sign. Bag signs are normally only economical for orders of 1,000 or more. Both poster board and bag signs are generally limited on size and color options.

Corrugated plastic (“coroplast”) signs, however, offer a variety of sizes and colors. They are a sturdy plastic material that ranges from small yard signs to large highway (“barn”) signs. Smaller signs are displayed with H-Frames or EZ Stakes that slide into the flutes, while the larger signs need heavier duty stakes that can be purchased from any farm supply store or hardware store and zip-tied to the signs. Coroplast signs can be printed on large, digital presses, allowing full-color printing on both sides.

Step 3: Compare Costs

Victory Enterprises has an online store  to help you analyze costs and find out which sign is best for you. You can select quantity and specifications and compare the amounts in your quote list.
