In a lot of industries temporary vinyl signs are an important way for a company to advertise.
One form of temporary vinyl signs used for smaller businesses is corrugated signs, known as “coroplass” signs. These vinyl signs are usually used with metal steaks to hold the signs in the ground. Some common sizes for these type of signs would be;18″ x 24″, 16″ x 20″, 12″ x 16″. In most cases vinyl lettering is used on these signs, but is some cases like a large quantity of on type of sign silk screening the temporary sign might be the way to go. You would have to check with your local silk screener if he will do signage and where the price break might be. There is even a new technology that alloys you to print directly on the temporary sign from a large format printer. This process is new could be costly.
Temporary vinyl signs are typically simple text with a name, phone number and maybe a quick message on the vinyl sign. Corrugated signs(coro-\plass)can be used in all types of weather(unless really windy, heavy wind could blow corrugated signs (coroplass)down because it is very light).Vinyl lettering holds up the best on temporary vinyl signs the best.
Depending on how many and the complexity of corrugated signs (coroplass) vinyl signs with the above sizes are relatively inexpensive, ranging $10.-$30. each. If you decide to silk screening methods with larger quantity coro-plass sign orders they could be even less money.
All kinds of industries benefit from temporary vinyl signs; Plumbers, Landscapers, Electricians, Builders, Home Improvement Specialists, Sprinkler installers…the list goes on. What most of these type businesses might do is use a temporary vinyl sign on a metal steak and place on a homeowners lawn of the property they are doing the work on(if it is ok with homeowner).
Larger corrugated signs (coroplass) vinyl signs are a great inexpensive way to advertise for an upcoming event. A lot of towns or cities might have existing plywood structures built to rent for temporary signs and coro-plass signs are best solution for this platform. You could even build your own structure on your own property or work out a deal with someone else’s property to place your corrugated plastic sign(always check your local government permits and codes before putting any signs up) Some of the common sizes are; 2′ x 3′, 3′ x 4′, 4′ x 4′, 4′ x 5′, 4′ x 6 and 4′ x 8′ but you can make the vinyl sign any size you want.
Vinyl lettering would definitely be the way to go, maybe 2 or 3 different color vinyls for lettering or vinyl graphics if needed. Corrugated signs (coroplass) comes in many different colors. I recommend using white for most coro-signs.
In any event I believe for a temporary vinyl sign corrugated plastic(coroplass) signs are a good economic solution for your business.
