PoliticalLawnSigns.com - Signs printed on poly coated cardboard offer opportunities for unique design applications not cost effective for plastic corrugated signs.

With the large population of signs during the campaign season, how does one "stand out" to be recognized and remembered? Consider these novel ideas.

First, Fold-Over Signs, when manufactured, are printed both ends of a poly coated sheet simultaneously (before folding and stapling). This process affords design flexibility and options not economically viable for conventional plastic corrugated signs.

While incurring no increase in costs, consider these design options for a double sided Fold-Over Sign.

For "attention grabbing" consider the approach side of the sign and the going away side of the sign to have the same copy, but with print "reversals". Note in the illustration one side of the sign is "green on white" type, whereas the other side displayed is "white on green". For a Fold-Over Sign this is still priced as a one color sign.

Most street signs are recognized by passing vehicles both as the driver approaches the sign and as the driver observes it in the rear view mirror. So why not design a two sided sign which reads correctly both "coming" and "going".

The roadways are crowded with signs during the campaign season. These ideas, which are realizable on Fold-Over Signs, without incurring extra manufacturing costs, could well bolster your presence among the pack.
