Are you looking for a way to get more business with a small budget? Yard signs are a great way to get more business with a minimal investment. Follow this steps to get started:

1. Determine your sign campaign

Yard signs aren’t just for contractors or home service providers. Any business can take advantage of yard signs when you properly plan your campaign.

2. Create a plan by answering these questions:

  • What’s your call to action? Do you want the audience to visit your store, your website, call a number or simply remember your company?
  • Who is your target audience, and where is the best place to reach them? A busy intersection, specific neighborhoods, business districts, or all of these?
  • Do you need permission to place yard signs where you want?
  • Will you give a special offer, discount, sale, freebie or other incentive to respond?
  • How many yard signs do you need, and who will distribute them?
  • What is the ultimate goal of your yard sign campaign? Can you track it?

Answering these questions will help you determine your yard sign design, printing and distribution. Put together a strategy now to yield excellent ROI from your yard sign campaign.

3. Design your yard signs

Yard sign design should be simple. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Determine the overall size(s) and use plenty of white space.
  • Limit the amount of text and use plenty of white space.
  • Use large, easy-to-read typefaces and use plenty of white space.
  • Use contrasting colors so your yard signs stand out and use plenty of white space.
  • Photos and illustrations can help get attention, as long as they’re relevant and you use plenty of white space.
  • Use a call to action so customers know what to do next and leave plenty of white space around it.
  • Use plenty of white space.

4. Printing your yard signs

Once you’ve finalized the design, the next step is to print your yard signs. Here are a few things to consider when going to print:

  • The bigger your yard signs are, the easier they’ll be to see.
  • Will you print both sides of your yard signs, or just on one?
  • Corrugated white plastic will make your designs stand out and withstand most weather conditions.
  • The more yard signs you print at once, the lower your price per yard sign will be. It makes sense to print in bulk.

5. Distribute your yard signs

It’s best to get your yard signs into the following places depending on your target audience:

  • High-traffic intersections
  • Targeted neighborhoods
  • Businesses
  • Homes you’ve serviced (lawn care, painters, contractors)
  • Neighboring cities
  • Be sure get permission to place your yard signs on private property, and consult local ordinances.

Using this 5 steps will help you plan, design, print, and distribute yard signs that will promote your brand and help elevate your business.

Logo and Shirt Design

image

We recently worked with Mid-Ohio IMB to create a new logo and t-shirts for them. The preliminary design was sketched out by the owner with a basic idea of what they wanted. We took the idea and made a few variations of it and provided them with three or four choices. They decided on one, we made a few alterations based on their feedback and the end result is the logo you need on these shirts. The process couldn’t be simpler!

The shirts are a Gildan cotton blend with two color logo screen printed on the front left chest and full back.
