Does your business or organization have a message to share with the community? When you are deciding on marketing tactics, consider using signs that can be placed in a yard or along a roadside.

Whether you are selling a home, promoting your landscaping business or inviting neighbors to your charity’s fundraising dinner, custom yard signs can be an effective tool for educating local residents about your products, promotions or events. Yard signs are not only eye-catching and easy to install, but they are one of the most economical forms of advertising available. But, you must know where you can and can’t place them so that you are in compliance with local ordinances.

The return of warmer weather brings with it a proliferation of road building and repair projects, with construction crews and equipment visible along the country’s local streets and highways.

As the number of workers on roads and highways increases, the risk of crashes and fatalities also increases. The risks apply equally to drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians. It’s no surprise that a host of organizations, including the Federal Highway Administration, state Departments of Transportation and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, sponsor National Work Zone Awareness Week in early April each year.

Winter weather can take a toll on road signs and sign posts, which often sustain damage from snowplowing operations and vehicle accidents resulting from slippery conditions or poor visibility. Traffic signs are critical because they communicate the rules, warnings, guidance and other highway agency information that drivers need to safely and efficiently navigate roads and streets. Well maintained signs help drivers make good decisions, so it is a traffic safety imperative to repair, reinstall or replace signs and sign posts that are damaged or missing.

While we help schools stock the usual supplies like paint for athletic fieldsparking signs, and snowplows and spreaders to keep the grounds clear, we have been busy creating plenty of custom signs and banners as well.
