Yard sign designs, share yours below

Hello all, just got my yard signs in from https://www.dopemarketing.com/yard-signs/
Team worked with me on the design and was very responsive and helpful so I’d figure I’d plug them in here, think I got 100 for $450 with stakes. Curious to hear and critiques on my design and see what everyone else’s yard signs are looking like

Also any strategies on where to place them for best results? Busy multi lane intersections or exits of neighborhoods? Going towards downtown or away?

The simpler, the better, imho.

Yep already noticing that you can’t see the logo from more than 25 ft away. Does not having a phone number affect it at all?

My response rate on these went up when I dropped the phone number.

I hate to assume, but everyone does get the double sided ones right?

I live in a rural area, I am not putting the area code on mine. I do not see the need for it, because if you live or regularly visit here you know the area code is the same for all landlines and cell numbers.

I don’t use the area code either. Mine are simple. The “house washing” has white letters with blue background. The phone number has blue letters with white background. The website has white letters with blue background. I’ll try and post pictures later.

Yeah I’m definitely regretting the design I chose. They look really good from up close but aren’t very visible from afar… might keep these to put in people’s yards after my work and get some simpler bandit signs to slap down around town. Can barely ready my number and black background shows thru to the other side making it hard to read the “soft”. I think your design is best @marinegrunt buy I didn’t heed to the simpler is better warnings

Put out 15 yesterday morning and haven’t received a call off any yet

Just a bit of advice. Put them in the yards of customers who agree. It takes longer but when people only see your signs in yards they realize how much work you actually do. It makes them trust you more. Anyone can put out signs in common areas and it doesn’t give potential customers any idea of what kind of work you do or who you work for.

Man fully agreed. I can’t stand the idea of “bandit” signs. It’s such an eyesore and like you said, any knucklehead can go out plastering signs everywhere. Signs being in a customer’s yard are much more legitimate in my eyes. Bandit signs were never an issue in my area until this year. There have been two new companies throwing them up at all major intersections and neighborhood entrances (I will give it to them for that lol. If I were to put them out, they are doing a great job at their location selections.).

My dad goes around town and picks up any he sees. I agree they are a major eyesore but right now there are 10 on any intersection due to the upcoming election. I put 2 at Lowe’s 2 at Home Depot and am going to put them at any house I do plus at the entrance to the neighborhood they are in

@sgb has the right idea. Super simple. Some signs there’s just no way to absorb all the information while driving past.

Thanks. All my stuff looks the same. It’s not as eye catching as a big “House Washing followed by phone number” but in the long run it makes a difference.

That is some excellent branding, I am jealous

Thank you for this, I was trying to figure out how to put a sign on another side of my trailer, the lettering on the tank is perfect. The sign on the rear of your trailer how high is it? I’m guessing 18-22".

I believe it’s be 11”x72”

You need some black or white shirts. That green doesn’t have very good contrast on gray.

Thanks again, very helpful.
