Deciding what type of campaign yard sign to use is very important to your campaign. Campaign yard signs are one of the best ways available to put your name out on the streets and have people know exactly what it is you are running for. Even better, a supporter with a sign in their yard may cause neighbors to share the support for your campaign. To all of the new and existing political candidates, RUNandWIN is here to help you through the process of selection and design of your political yard signs and to best reflect your image and project your candidacy.
When choosing a yard sign, there are many factors to consider. You need to take in account: budget, weather, size, ease of use and reusability.
Take the time to weigh the options before choosing a sign. Are you in a short campaign and simply need a sign to use economically? Poly coated poster boards may be for you. Are you in an area where there is severe weather? Then you should consider corrugated plastic. If you have a large area to cover and want the convenience of easy packing, then you need bag signs.
Corrugated signage is one of the most durable forms of outdoor campaign advertising available and is still economical. They will outlast poly coated cardboard signage and can be reused for future campaigns. Corrugated plastic will also stand-up to rain and bad weather during your campaign.
Poly-coated poster boards are thick poster boards (24pt mostly) that have an Ultra Violet and weather resistant coating to protect it from the weather. These signs are typically the most economical of the signs. While these signs are weather resistant, you may not be able to collect all of them and reuse them. They handle inclement weather but may curl at the corners with extended periods of rain. These signs may have scoring where you fold and then staple them before placing the signs on the frame. These are also the most time consuming to put together though.
Bag signs are made of flexible, inner lines polyethylene material that can hold-up against the weather. Typically printed at 16″ x 26″, these signs are large enough for great exposure. Since the material is light, it is a very easy to use sign, and the shipping is less than other products. However, pricing in smaller quantities tends to be high. At large quantities, bag signs will be your most economical option.
