CUSTOM SHAPED LAWN SIGNS
While lawn signs are popular because they’re very effective at getting noticed, you can improve their impact even more by going with a custom shape.
WHY ARE CUSTOM SHAPED LAWN SIGNS SO EFFECTIVE?
Ever since our ancestors began drawing crude images on cave walls, symbols have been a useful tool for communication.
In modern times, we see symbols everywhere.
They show us the right direction, they provide warnings and they present us with choices. They do all of this more efficiently than text and for the most part they’re universally understood by crossing language barriers.
It may sound like we’re over thinking this when it comes to lawn signs, but considering how competitive it is to grab people’s attention these days, custom shapes can help your message cut through the noise and stand out from the crowd.
CUSTOM SHAPE LAWN SIGN IDEAS
What are some practical examples?
The industry that takes advantage of custom shapes for signage the most is probably real estate.
Whether it’s an arrow shaped sign to point people towards an open house or a house shaped sign to advertise a home for sale, realtors use these tools because they know how crucial it is to grab attention and get noticed.
Some other examples of custom shaped signs include:
- Matching the sign shape to a company’s logo to increase brand awareness
- Outline of candidates head to add another dimension to political lawn signs
- A dentist sign in the shape of a tooth
- Hand shaped sign to signify “stop” or “slow down”
- Puzzle shape to advertise a toy store
- Rounded golf ball shape protruding from the typical rectangle border to draw attention for a golf course
- Custom shaped lawn letters and numbers as part of a graduation or birthday celebration
Due to the material used to create the custom shaped signs, there’s really no limit to the number of design options available.
HOW ARE CUSTOM SHAPED LAWN SIGNS MADE?
Since most lawn signs are made from corrugated plastic (aka coroplast), they can be custom molded into practically any shape.
Using a precise die cut process; your custom shapes will come out with a perfect consistent finish every time.
It’s due to the rigidness of the coroplast material used that they can be cut into a custom shape while still being durable when stuck in the grass using a lawn sign step stake.
Like regular lawn signs, custom lawn signs are available as single or double sided, in unlimited colors and in a variety of sizes.
HOW MUCH DO CUSTOM SHAPED LAWN SIGNS COST?
Since custom shaped lawn signs must be made with corrugated plastic instead of polybag material, determining their cost is simply a matter of adding an additional $1.00 - $3.00 per sign to the usual cost of lawn signs.
For example, if you are planning on ordering a batch of the most popular lawn sign size of 24” by 18”, you’d just need to add $1.50 per sign to the standard costs in order to figure out what the custom shaped version of those signs will cost.
There is also a standard $40 set up fee added to any custom lawn sign order.
