Campaign Signs: Everything you need to know.

It’s been a busy Primary season for us in 2014. For Which we are very grateful. There are few industry standards that everyone should be aware of:
Standard Sizes for Campagin Signs:
18″ x 24″
24″ x 48″ Signs
4′ x 8′ or 48″ x 96″

Colors:
Of course when it comes to campaigns, you have your colors for all your materials.. But when it comes to signs. You want good contrasting colors so that the signs are very clear to read. I like to used the term 35 Miles Hour Rule. Which basically makes the point that you need to be able to read the sign if driving by at 35 mph.

Design:
When it comes to designing your signs. It does matter. I have seen some terrible designs and some great designs. Let me be clear. Less is more. Simple is better when it comes to signs. Allow the sign to be readable. You want to make sure to emphasize your name and office running for. Contrast is important.

Material:
Generally most campaign signs are 4 Mm or 4 Mil Corrugated Plastic. There are also 10 Mil, which generally will cost more but will be longer lasting and durable.

Sides:
So there is an eternal quesiton of do i print 1 side or 2 sides on these signs. There are some factors to consider
1 – Placement of Sign – Many times I see 4′ x 8′ foot signs 2 sided with one back in a low visibility area.
2- Cost – Generally, 2 sides signs cost more.. I do recommend this for 18″ x 24″ and make sure to place them in high visibility area for both sides. I also generally think this is great for 24″ x 48″ signs, but on most occasions I don’t recommend this for 4′ x 8′ signs unless both sides are high visibility areas.

Stakes and Mounting:
Okay. for 18″ x 24″ signs its a very simple H Stake. They are fairly inexpensive and and readily accessible for your sign supplier. (Hopefully us)
for 2′ x 4′ Signs 2 there are really 2 options 1. you can use 2 H stakes Side by side, 2. Re-bar on the Side of each sign.
When it comes to 4′ x 8′ it’s more a free for all. I have seen wooden posts, or taller rebar or Green Steel T posts.(usually found at your hardware store)

Well.. I hope this has been a helpful and cursory view of all this Campaign signs. Please check our whole line of campaign products out @ http://www.123decal.com
