How much is shipping?
Your shipping cost will be immediately calculated for you!
Shipping costs are determined by the number of boxes, total weight, destination zip code, shipping method, and specifics related to your address (i.e. residential or commercial). This order info is communicated directly to the UPS database, where the exact total is returned. Due to volume, we receive a reasonable discount from UPS which we pass along directly to you.
What is the set-up charge for a sign order?
We do not charge setup fees. Occasionally, if you are adding a logo or graphic and do not have a 'Print-Ready' file there may be an art fee but we will try to offer a free version first. If you have questions about whether your file is 'Print-Ready' contact us and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
How do I mount my signs?
Corrugated plastic signs can be mounted in a variety of ways, but most people mount them on wood stakes, telephone poles, or metal stakes (H-wires or Step Stakes). The plastic sign has lines or "flutes" that run either horizontally or vertically.
You must request that your signs have vertical flutes if you want to mount them on H-wires. This is the default setting on our ordering page. Horizontal flutes are better for wood stakes because the sign is less likely to fold in the wind. You can attach the signs to wood stakes with a staple gun, but we recommend using roofing nails that include a plastic washer to keep the sign from tearing.
Can I add a logo or other graphic image to my sign?
Yes, we can add your logo or other graphic to your sign, but we require it to be a vector graphic converted to outlines or curves. Common vector formats include:
- AI (Adobe Illustrator)
- EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)
- PDF (Portable Document Format)
- SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
We have a more in-depth explanation of these files on our file types page. Files in .jpg or .gif format, especially graphics copied off the internet are raster or bitmapped files and are not suitable for sign printing. We typically charge $10 to $95 to set up your logo if you can't provide it in a vector format. This is a one-time charge and is not charged again when you place future orders with us. You can contact us and we will give you an estimate of the art setup charge. We also have a variety of clip art images available for $0 - $15 each.
Can I get the 1,000 price even if I only need 100 signs right now?
No; our pricing is based on the number of identical signs printed in the same production run. Once a set of signs is completed, we break down the screen and print the next customer's signs. The screens cannot be re-used.
