Types of Yard Signs
Yard signs come in various flavors; some are semi-permanent; others are lightweight and portable. There is a sign for everyone and every budget.
- Swing post (colonial post) sign
The swing post sign comprises an inverted ‘L’ shaped frame made of wood or metal (typically, aluminum) affixed directly into the ground. A signboard is attached to the horizontal bar and can be free hanging or rigid. Signboards can be fabricated out of acrylic, wood, and metal; they can even be vinyl banners.
Durability Level: Strong; can be used as semi-permanent signage
- H-frame sign
H-frames are comprised of two poles with a sign affixed between them. Together they form an ‘H’ shape and are used most often for temporary advertisements. The sign itself is usually made of coroplast (corrugated plastic); the narrow poles are typically made of plastic. The sign is relatively light and great as a short termsign. These are incredibly inexpensive and easy to deploy in large numbers, requiring no special tools to plant in front yards. No wonder they are by far the most popular yard signs in Michigan.
Durability Level:Lightweight; best for short term promotions
- A-frame sign
Also known as a ‘sandwich board’ sign, an A-frame sign can be made from wood, metal, or plastic, depending on how it is intended to be used. Two panels open in an ‘A’ pattern and are completely self-standing. Both panels can be used for display, allowing you to advertise in two different directions simultaneously. These signs are portable, too, ideal if you plan to reuse the same sign at various events.
Durability Level: Should not be left out in harsh weather; portable signs
- Vinyl banners and flags
Flags and vinyl banners are incredibly customizable. Choose from small or large signs, get custom shapes and, of course, print your unique design. They are great options if you are looking for a ‘dynamic sign’ that will catch attention with gentle flapping.
Durability Level: Long-lasting; light, and easy to roll up
Choosing the Right Material
Metal, wood, coroplast, plastic,and vinyl are the most common materials used to fabricate commercial yard signs. Each material has its advantages and uses. If you are looking for the cheapest yard signs in Michigan,the coroplast is your best bet. No wonder we receive orders for hundreds of these. On the other hand, if you want a sign that exudes quality, wood and metal are the way to go.
