Yard Signs can also be ordered with Grommets, Contour cutting, Pole Wire w/ Zip Tie and more combinations. To order additional stakes. Select Yard Signs with Stakes from the "Large Format" dropdown menu.

Marketing Tips

Yard Signs are effective marketing tools because they can be used indoors and outdoors, and are durable enough to be left in place for longer periods of time. Commonly used for real estate and political campaigns, Yard Signs are effective for increasing awareness of a brand, company, or person in any setting.

Because they are made from sturdy corrugated plastic, Yard Signs are ideal for outdoor applications. They resist the elements and don't flop around like thinner materials.

In addition to outdoor, Yard Signs are also often used for indoor applications. They are strong and light, and available with grommets in either 2 or 4 corners for easy hanging.

Custom Sizes

 

Available in custom sizes ranging from 12"x 12" up to 48" high x 46" wide.

4mm White Corrugated Plastic

 

Strong perpendicular to the flutes and designed to withstand the elements or for indoor use, 4mm White Corrugated Plastic is durable and lightweight. The channels between the flutes accommodate yard sign stakes perfectly and the bright white finish showcases colors and designs. It can be printed on both sides.

6mm White Corrugated Plastic

 

The 6mm White Corrugated Plastic is slightly more durable than the 4mm. The channels between the flutes accommodate yard sign stakes perfectly and the bright white finish showcases colors and designs. It can be printed on both sides.

Yard Sign Stakes

 

We offer 2 options for Yard Sign Stakes.

  • H-Wire:
    Designed to support yard signs 14" off the ground, these stakes are constructed from 9 gauge galvanized steel. While they will hold a sign stable, they are recommended for one-time use. The bottom rung of the H-Wire increases stability, though it may also be used to assist in inserting the stake into the ground.

    These stakes are NOT designed for signs over 48" in width.


    Beefy Stakes:
    Designed for resilience in wind and to withstand the elements, these stakes are made from a titanium byproduct. Two beefy stakes are necessary to support a sign, though signs wider than 24" will likely require 3 stakes, while signs wider than 36 "may require 4.

Grommets

 

Grommets are round, metal hole reinforcements. They are a convenient addition to use for mounting your printed piece. Grommets are available in 2 or 4 corners or placed every two feet for larger printed pieces.

File Preparation

 

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.

  2.  

  3. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.

  4.  

  5. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.)

  6.  

  7. Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

  8.  

  9. Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

  10.  

  11. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.

File Orientation

 

Please click the link below for an explanation of file orientation.

Bleed and Safe Area

We require that you extend any images that run up to the trim line a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") past the trim line to create "bleed". Depending on what program you use to create your file, this may or may not change the total image area of your file. Programs like Photoshop that do not allow the creation of "bleed" or the addition of crop marks will require an image area that is 1/4" (0.25") larger than your desired final overall image area in both dimensions.

Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. If you choose to make less than this minimum clearance, we will NOT be responsible for items that are cut off in this area.

Proofs and File Check

 

We offer three proof options:

  1. Online PDF Proof: You will be sent a link to view your proof via email. Please keep in mind that this is only a proof for content and positioning; the color on your screen may vary from the color of your final product, depending on your monitor and viewing conditions.

  2.  

  3. Hard Copy Proof: The Hard Copy Proof can either be picked up on-site or shipped to you. Please keep in mind that this is a proof for content and positioning and is not printed on your actual job stock. Color may vary slightly when printed on the stock you ordered. When ordering a Hard Copy Proof, you will receive a complimentary Online PDF Proof, as well.

  4.  

  5. No Proof, Run As-Is: This option is for the industry professional who is certain their project is ready to hit the press and does not require the additional security of a proof.

File Check:

If our prepress department sees anything questionable with your file, we will contact you via email with our concerns. Should prepress email you, please note that your job is not considered fully submitted until you respond to this email. This should be factored into your turnaround time.File check does not apply to No Proof, Run As-Is. No Proof, Run As-Is jobs print from the exact file(s) you upload unless it is not possible to print because your supplied file does not match the specifications ordered.

How to check your Online PDF:
The black crop marks indicate the final trim size. The Red line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Score) The Green line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Perf). The Red Line (Solid) indicates the ( Cut or Trim ) line. The verbiage on the file, this will indicate the page position after folding.

If they note technical concerns with your file, they may email you with their concerns so you can upload a corrected file. If subsequent uploads still contain errors, you may be charged an additional prepress fee to review your file again.
