Yard signs: What is this product?
The plate is one of the most inexpensive and useful advertising media. This is a small but necessary business tool.
Yard signs are such special signs that are most often installed in the yard and can help you establish any order or help with the sale of real estate.
They are manufactured in small sizes and do not have specific manufacturing standards.
An information plate is an important attribute of any organization, regardless of its field of activity. They can display a variety of information, but the main difference between the labels is where they will be used – indoors or out. For the production of information plates that will be located on the facade of the building, materials that are resistant to atmospheric precipitation, which are easy to clean, are chosen, and most often customers prefer metal. External labels have large print for inscriptions, since the data should be clearly visible from a long distance.
Office labels indicate the office number or personal data of the employee, so their size can be much more modest. For such plates, we consider plastic to be the best choice, because it is distinguished by its durability and affordable price. Door plates in hotels are selected according to the general decoration of the room, because they are a kind of interior element.
A separate category consists of warning or prohibitive signs, which may contain signs and international symbols. The need for this arises in public places in order to properly zone the territory and help people navigate the terrain.
What is the process of making plates?
After creating a template on a computer, a program for creating code and robotic dense material is loaded into it, cutting out the border sign and symbolism on a sheet of self-adhesive film. Like the one from which we see ads in the windows of many stores about discounts and much more.
After that, everything is checked for defects. After checking the quality of the layout, prepare the frame from the polyester fabric necessary for the signboard manufacturing process. It is coated with a thin layer of photosensitive paint. When the paint dries, a template for a previously cut road sign is pasted onto it then it gets placed in a vacuum frame and air is pumped out to remove wrinkles on the surface.
When the process of pumping air is completed, the fabric emits light from a special luminous flux up to 6 thousand watts. Sample etching. Special purpose sign template fabric. In this case, the surfaces are placed under the aluminum plate. Cut them into pieces of a fixed size. Subsequently, the drawing of the sign is applied to these parts. This is done using a small industrial guillotine. Close corners on future signs and make holes for fixing bolts.
After the cleaning of sheets in tanks with special chemical solutions, remove residual grease, dirt and other particles.
The last stage of preparation for printing.
Now you can go directly to the drawing. To do this, use screen printing technology. Polyester is a lot cheaper. The station for the production of road signs paints on an aluminum plate through a screen with a layout made earlier. The paint penetrates through the hole in the fabric, thereby forming a colorful background on the surface of the road sign. After applying the paint, it should be in the drying chamber, where the temperature does not exceed 66 degrees. To make a street name plate, the aluminum plate is covered with a reflective film as a background, and then the street name is applied by screen printing. Or this method is not as durable as silk-screen printing.
For the manufacture of multi-color characters, only the screen-printing method is used. We apply paint, thereby interfering with the mixing of colors. The applied paint is sufficiently transparent in its composition and does not affect the reflective film deposited on the sign with a layer below. This sign has a reflective ability, not just letters.
We manufacture products based on plastic and aluminum – the simplest to use, durable and inexpensive materials.
Aluminum is a great option if you need to create a stylish tablet. Painting for metal (silver, golden) looks solid, because the product can be used in institutions, large companies that value their reputation. Another plus of aluminum is its low weight, thanks to which the plate can be mounted on the door from any materials.
Plastic is another practical material with wide design capabilities. For the production of plates and pointers, two-layer plastic is used. The colors of the layers can be the same or different, which allows you to beat any color scheme, for example, in corporate colors.
Like aluminum, plastic weighs virtually nothing; it is easily mounted on any surface.
Both materials are highly resistant to external phenomena. They are not afraid of dampness, frost, ultraviolet or temperature difference. Therefore, such plates can be used both indoors and outdoors.
The durability and good preservation of the plate for a long time are guaranteed.
Yard signs: How to make?
Where are pointers of this kind most in demand? As a rule, they are simply necessary when it comes to crowded places.
- Bus stops, metro, supermarkets – difficult to imagine such objects without the presence of information plates. It is these signs that help customers navigate in the immense sea of opportunities. Such signs not only allow you to correctly,
- send people by providing them with information about the location of a particular object, but also often serve as a smart marketing move.
For example, having placed a sign with the word “snack bar” and a pointing arrow in the lobby of the railway station, you can significantly increase the level of sales even to a modest station cafeteria. Also, information stands are often used as signage for offices of a certain type of enterprise. For example, the state structure is unlikely to order a bright neon sign. But a solid information stand is just what is needed.
What can we give recommendations for the operation of yard signs?
To use the signs for a long time, we recommend that you observe the following rules:
- Use soapy water or 1-2% to remove traces of dirt and dust
- soda solution.
- Use mineral spirits, gasoline, solvent or nefras to remove oil products and coal dust.
- Use detergents on the surface of the mark with a spray.
- Wipe the surface of the mark with a soft cloth or a cloth dampened with plenty of water.
- Do not use hard brushes for cleaning.
- No dry cleaning of signs.
- Do not use fuel or organic solvents for cleaning.
- Avoid exposure to high temperatures, in particular, do not use devices designed for cleaning with steam.
- Do not use snow and rainwater to clean signs.
What are the signs for?
Labels can carry a variety of information. Inside buildings, they can serve as location indicators:
- special rooms
They should be clearly visible from a distance with a relatively small size. Conveniently, along with the manufacturing order, installation of information plates is offered, both inside buildings and outside. This is an important point, because the correct and reliable installation of sign plates requires appropriate consumables, tools, equipment, and most importantly experienced craftsmen who will quickly and accurately do the entire amount of necessary work.
Benefits of yard signs
Since these signs are made of relatively cheap materials, they are very affordable. Yards Signs are by far one of the most cost-effective marketing solutions available. You can deliver your company’s message to an audience for less than billboards, newspaper advertisements, or television and radio commercials.
Although they are made from inexpensive materials, this does not necessarily mean that they are not durable. Coroplast or corrugated plastic is actually durable and able to withstand harsh weather conditions. You do not need to worry about moving them when the weather worsens. As long as they are securely installed in place, these signs can be left outdoors for a long period of time and maintained.
A feature of the address plates is a bright and memorable design, attracting the attention of passers-by and quick search of the address. Thanks to the use of modern technologies and high-quality materials, such plates are reliable, durable and resistant to adverse environmental factors.
By design, it can be simple pointers or light boxes, and they are made of plastic, acrylic and metal, composite. As a backlight, ordinary incandescent lamps or economical LEDs are used.
At the client’s request, it is possible to install photocells that work automatically and are characterized by energy efficiency, reliable operation and a long service life.
To apply images and inscriptions, laser engraving, double-sided tape, and self-adhesive film are used. They can be of different sizes, colors and configurations, which makes it easy and quick to choose the right option.
The information stand has several advantages:
- Low cost,
- The ability to quickly change information (in stands with replaceable content).

- Structured information on the stands.
