Yard signs: A guide to their differences.
Not all yard signs are created equal!
Standard Yard Sign (Lawn Sign)
Pictured to the left is what is typically called and considered a standard yard sign or lawn sign. The yard sign you see in the picture is comprised of a digital print (or prints) that are mounted to a piece of corrugated plastic material. Corrugated plastic looks just light cardboard (but in plastic form) with two sides for displaying information. A digital print (or prints) are printed on adhesive vinyl material and adhered to the corrugated plastic, on one side or both, creating the essence of the yard sign (or lawn sign). The finishing touch is a simple two-pronged wire stake which slides easily into the flutes of the corrugated plastic yard sign with the other end of the stake sticking into the ground making the yard sign stand up vertically. This type of yard sign is very lightweight, portable and cost effective and is great for most temporary outdoor uses.
Real Estate Framed Yard Sign
This type of yard sign is very popular in the real estate industry and among businesses. It is sturdier and more versatile than the typical yard sign seen above. The wire-frame stake makes this type of yard sign a little beefier and can hold a sign that can be seen clearly in either direction. The versatility of a real estate framed yard sign lies in the different types of signs that the wire-frame stake can hold (corrugated plastic, PVC and aluminum). The sign portion of this product are easily slide in and out of the wire-frame stake for endless advertising possibilities.
Real Estate T-Bar Yard Sign
This t-bar yard sign is another variation of the different types of yard signs available and is another popular yard sign in the real estate sign industry that can be used for other businesses as well. The sign itself can be made from PVC or aluminum and then mounted onto a steel stake that resembles a "t" that the sign is mounted to. The t-shape of the stake gives this type of yard sign a frame-less design while still maintaining a sturdy base with proper support for the printed sign to be displayed on.
L-Shaped Yard Sign - Metal
L-Shaped yard signs are sleek and classy looking and can be easily moved making it very portable. L-shaped yard signs are yet another popular real estate sign that many other business can still utilize for effective yard sign advertising. The L-shape design of the yard sign post allows your chosen sign substrate (PVC, corrugated plastic or aluminum) to hang from the frame on hooks that are inserted to drilled holes in the sign itself. This type of yard sign can be single-sided or double-sided allowing for coverage on either side of the sign with contrasting information or identical information on either side. The stake and sign combination of this particular yard sign gives it versatility with the option of creating multiple signs to hang from a single post. This type of yard sign is also capable of holding a "rider" on top for additional advertising information.
L-Shaped Yard Sign - Vinyl
This L-shaped yard sign mimics the real estate yard sign above in basic purpose and function but differs in the construction of the actual L-shaped post itself. This post on this yard sign is thicker and made out of a hollow plastic vinyl material that is UV protected and will not yellow or crack. To secure this sign into the ground requires a metal anchor so that no digging is required unlike traditional wood posts. Vinyl L-shaped yard signs can accommodate interchangeable hanging signs made from aluminum, corrugated plastic or PVC with an additional "rider" option on top of the sign for additional information.
