They will outlast poly-coated posterboard signage and can be reused for future campaigns. Corrugated plastic will also stand up to rain and bad weather during your campaign.
Corrugated Plastic Campaign Signs
Corrugated plastic, sometimes referred to as coroplast®, is essentially a plastic form of cardboard. It has the internal fluting similar to cardboard box material, and corrugated plastic will be able to withstand more rain that poly coated poster boards, that has the tendency to sway over during high winds.
However, another downside to corrugated plastic signs is that the print will not be as crisp as poster board signs, due to the slight variations of the material because of the fluting. While still a great sign, you may notice lines in your artwork.
Poly-coated Poster Board Signs
Poly-coated poster board yard signs are thick poster boards (24pt mostly) that have an UV and weather resistant coating to protect them. 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.
Signs such as these, that have to be stapled, come in many sizes. The most common campaign yard sign is 14″ x 22″ at its folded size and tend to be slightly smaller than other signs.This may be a positive or negative thing for your campaign, therefore there is a poly coated poster board yard sign that has the convenience of being pre-sealed so you do not have to staple. The signs come in 16″ x 26″ and have an economic price tag. This campaign yard sign is one of the most popular signs available for political campaigns.
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.
These campaign bag signs are sturdy and could possibly be reused, but will take on some wear and tear. Campaign bag signs are becoming more popular due to their ease of use.
