Back to school; upcoming holidays; political races…what do these have in common?

They are all events that bring customers to you to order signs.

Given so many signs to choose from, how do you know which one is right for the occasion?

The most popular signs are Fold-Over Posters, Stapled Posters, and Corrugated Signs -which are the most frequently ordered. These signs can all be used for any event, but depending on your customers’ needs, there are different points to consider.


Fold-Over Posters are made for outdoor use. Sold with or without frames, the posters are shipped flat but scored down the middle. Light assembly is required to fold and staple the posters. These posters are great for any event but are used most commonly for political signage for local and regional campaigns.

Fold-Over Posters are also used in retail settings to advertise an event or sale.

Pros Quick turnaround time – usually 6 working days for quantities of 2500 or less Less expensive than corrugated Lightweight material Available in 4-color process

Cons Frames are extra Smaller quantities are more costly than corrugated Same imprint on both sides

Stapled Posters are made from 18 point weather-resistant poster board, pre-stapled and ready to slip over the supplied frame. Because no assembly is required, these are more commonly used for larger campaigns. These signs can also be used for local and regional campaigns, schools, and retail settings.

Pros Quick turn-around time – usually 6 working days for quantities of 2500 or less Frames are usually included in the price Available in 4-color process Signs are supplied pre-stapled – no assembly required

Cons Fewer options for finished size

Corrugated Signs are the bulk of all sign orders. The reasons for this are cost, durability and range of sizes. Made of all-weather corrugated plastic sheeting, this 3/16” thick material is also known as Corroplast. This sign can fulfill any sign need but is especially popular for political campaigns, service industries and special causes. This material is extremely durable and has an average outdoor life expectancy of one year.

Pros Durability – average outdoor life expectancy of 1 year Most economical sign for quantities under 500 Different images on different sides Smaller sizes can double as a hand sign 12 different standard sizes: 4’ x 8’ is the largest size; 18” x 12” is the smallest size Won’t rip, tear or warp

Cons Heavier weight than other sign options = higher freight costs More costly than fold-over posters
