Winter has passed and people are ready to fix up their homes…make sure they know that you’re the right company for the job!

The winter weather is abating at last, and that means homeowners’ minds will turn to: fixin’ up the house! It seems to be something in the air: as soon as the leaves begin to bud and spring beckons, people are ripe for remodeling. Which means it’s the season for home services: contractors, roofers, house painters, construction companies, landscapers, all — come feast at the banquet of new business.

Of course, your first step is letting potential customers know you exist. One of the smartest ways to do this is by placing a lawn sign on the property of a current client while you’re working on their home. Ask if they’d mind a small, tasteful sign that lets the neighbors know what you offer. If the client doesn’t want a yard sign left on the lawn overnight you could take it with you each afternoon when you leave.

Here are a few tips for creating eye-catching, customer-pleasing lawn signs and bandit signs:

  • Color me appealing. Even if your personal taste runs more to chartreuse or neon, it’s best to stick with tried-and-true colors for advertising your business. Use your company colors, ideally no more than two: red and blue, blue and gold, or a single color on white are all excellent color combinations for your home service yard signs or bandit signs.
  • Just the facts, Ma’am. Keep the information basic: the name of your company, what you do, and contact information. If your company name describes the business (e.g., Jackson Construction, Lawson Bros. Landscaping) all you’ll need to add is a phone number.

    Keep it simple.

    Keep it simple.

  • Make it sturdy. Just like your good work, our plastic yard signs are built to last. Corrugated plastic is a lightweight, weather-resistant material that performs admirably under adverse conditions. You’ll be able to re-use the yard signs you create for years to come.
  • One size doesn’t fit all. While standard yard signs are 18×24″, our signs come in eight different sizes. So again, think about what will best suit the information you need to include, as well as placement and portability, and select the size that fits your unique home services business needs.

We wish you a successful year — that’s a sign of the times!
