I own a small contracting business and one of the most effective ways I advertise some of our less technical activities is through the use of lawn/road signs. Road signs can be fairly expensive when I get them professionally made so I started making them about 3yrs ago and came up with a way to make very good looking signs for about 25 cents a piece (depending on where you buy the supplies).

Thing you will need.
glue, paint roller, corrugated plastic sheets, computer, can of clear spray paint,sink or tub.

steps.
1.design a sign on your computer and get them printed off at a cheap print shop on regular large format paper for cheap.
2.cut corrugated plastic sheet to size
3.use your sink or a small bucket and fill it about 2''-3'' with water.
4.fill a small pan with white contractor glue.
5.roll glue onto pre-cut piece of corrugated plastic sheet
6.lightly dip underside of paper sign print-off into water bath and apply to corrugated sheet(smooth out with hands or squeegee.
7.let dry for a few hours.
8.(most important step) spray dry sign with clear spray paint to make sign water tight and weather proof.

I hope this helps anyone out that needs to make good looking signs for dirt cheap.

This is actually a really good idea. It sounds like a very good way to make effective signs. I am not very autistic and so I don't know how they would turn out for me.

Pretty good idea. Signage is actually really expensive to get made.

In fact, great idea, those signs will probably look great. Even so, you don't need a permit or pay a license to use signs by the road?

Yeah. Actually paper would do the job the cheapest, some used paper or cardboard, recycled materials which cost 0$.

Cheap and simple, I like it! I'm guessing the start is kinda hard, the first few signs are going to come out a little off until you get the hang of it. But is it legal? You made it sound like you spread them all over the place as business advertising. Don't you need some sort of permit?

By the way. If you lack resources another option would be to stencil things on pieces of wood or other materials.

This is a good idea, and i do it too.

However. Making the signs are the easy part. The challenging part is going to be finding people who are willing to let you post your sign on their property. This is a problem that i did not consider when i purchased the my signs. I bought more signs than i was able to post. People are very particular about these things. They will bluntly tell you no. All you can do is keep trying until you fin someone who will.

Brace yourself, because it is going to be a frustrating experience.

I live in Calgary, Canada, so we are allowed to put them all over the city except for major roads or in front of traffic signs. for a quick video check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr5GU-UurTs
Most important thing to remember is to use a quality water based glue or else the paper wont stick as good.

In my opinion, a weed eater is a very important part of our garden. First of all, we make our lawn look nice. This is very important when some guests decided to visit your house and they will definitely pay attention to your garden first. So, you should be ready and know how to Trim That Weed (https://trimthatweed.com/) in a right way.

Guys, how can I improve my allotment besides making the lawn look better? I'm thinking about getting cool solar lights for outdoor (https://www.liferejoice.com/best-outdoor-solar-lights/) actually. Do you think it can make it more beautiful? Or should I focus on, say, planting trees, improving fences and so on?

Secure the strip with hot glue. Add landscaping stakes through the strips at the bottom of each of the letters and numbers. Hold the top of the landscaping stakes so they don't slide up and push the stakes into the ground. Place the signs in the yard to surprise the birthday boy and girl!

Signs come in various shapes and sizes, but are most often rectangular and between 12 and 40 inches on each side. They are usually produced in packages that include lawn sign wires since most of these lawn signs need to be placed on a grass or dirt surface.

If yard signs can win elections, they can certainly win customers for your business. Like brand mushrooms popping up on lawns, they blare the name of your company and increase your brand recognition. While yard signs can't talk with customers, they are an affordable, low maintenance way to advertise your brand 24/7.

Many men are serious about their hairstyle and for this, a trimmer is most often bought. But no matter how new or good the trimmer is, sooner or later it will be necessary to buy a new battery or batteries. But more often and best of all, buy acamulatory trimmers with a separately sold charger or complete with the trimmer itself. But it also happens that people just don’t know where and how to buy it. I also don’t know where and how to buy this stuff, but I was lucky and I found a site where here (https://homendgarden.com/best-cordless-string-trimmer) you can find out about the best trimmers, how to use them and where they are the cheapest to buy.

The easiest way would be to print the signs on paper and glue them to very sturdy cardboard, which you would later attach to a wooden stick, which you would insert into the ground and set firmly. My lawn also needed this manipulation, but there were so many trees near my house that I had to remove them. I usually hadn't thought about it before and didn't know anything about the subject, but my neighbor had been doing it for a while and told me about https://www.growgardener.com/best-rope-for-pulling-trees-here-are-5-best/ (https://www.growgardener.com/best-rope-for-pulling-trees-here-are-5-best/), which helped me decide on a way to get rid of the extra trees.
