Coroplast lawns signs are a tried-and-true method for bolstering public awareness and showing solidarity during the political campaign season. Ardent followers enjoy placing these yard signs along their property, as a way of expressing their support for a favorite candidate, ballot initiative, or grassroots measure.
Your organization doesn’t have to be a multinational endeavor to merit the purchase of political campaign signs. At Image360, we offer bulk yard signage at a discounted rate for amounts ranging from hundreds to thousands of signs.
Local campaigns stand to benefit from plastic yard signs more than high-profile competitors, simply because television coverage, newspaper advertisements, and radio airwaves are prohibitively expensive. Name and party awareness is a hurdle that a lesser known politician must struggle to overcome. But, with the right placement, design, and strategy, political campaign signs can give these candidates a leg up on their rivals.
What are political campaigns signs made of?
There are three principal types of political yard signs, all of which are recyclable and durable. They range in function, and differ in the following aspects:
Read on to discover which substrate of yard sign best fits your budget and needs.
Looking for a tough, yet lightweight material that’s weather resistant? Corrugated plastic, often referred to by its brand name Coroplast, will withstand the elements for up to two years – more than enough to last an election season.
What differentiates coroplast signs from other plastic signs is their layered design. A corrugated plastic sign will have two sheets of plastic, separated by fluting within. They’re generally manufactured with a copolymer polypropylene resin. As intimidating as the material might sound based of its name, just know that the same plastic is used in Tic Tac boxes, as well as laboratory equipment.
Coroplast yard signs use an H wire frame and two metal posts to maintain stability. This facilitates placement, though you might be hard-pressed to keep them in the ground during windy weather. We’d recommend a sign with wooden stakes if you’re constantly dealing with routine gales or thunderstorms.
Corrugated pollical campaign signs are the most versatile on the market. Let Image360 put together a custom Coroplast sign order for you today.
Poly bag yard signs have grown in popularity among those looking for an even lower-cost alternative to standard political signs. While these signs have less rigidity (you’ll have handle the seem of the material gently), they are waterproof and extremely lightweight.
Foldable steel wires allow this type of sign to be planted anywhere in soil or grass, though installation takes a little bit longer than it would with Coroplast. Their lack of a true frame design means they’ll be a little flimsier on the campaign trail, even though they’re weather-resistant. But if you’re placing signs all around Phoenix or San Diego, for instance, these detriments won’t make much of a difference.
This type of sign has history. The traditional, fold-over design has served politicians for decades, and despite their heavier nature (not necessarily heavy, per se – just heavier than their counterparts) they make a great addition to any campaign in quantities between 250-500 signs.
Polyboard signs are coated with polyethylene in order to protect them from moisture. The quality of this coating will vary depending upon the sign manufacturer. 24-point stock paperboard is the standard thickness; a good supplier won’t deviate too far from these dimensions, so look out for any company attempting to sell thinner stock.
