Realtor Signs

Postby teardropper » Tue Apr 03, 2012 5:30 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the 4x4 PVC posts used to hold the yard sign for realtors? They attach to the ground with a metal stake. You can get solar yard sign power. If it works, it would be easy...

Yeah, yeah - OK. I thought I would make a erasable whiteboard sign to announce the daily drink specials -- if it would hold up. It didn't sound so crazy a while ago...

Louise uses PVC in a rectangle:

(That's one of our happy models modeling her new clothes.)

We drive a couple of rebar into the ground and slip the rectangle legs over the rebar. Louise uses fabric for the sign, but you could use whiteboard or chalkboard, depending on what works in the desert. If you made the fabric of velcro, you could velcro letters to it, so long as you don't mind some creative Burners playing with the message.

My camp rolled like that in 2002. The year previous was the first time it felt like everyone was fighting for space in a subdivision rather than camping in the wide open, so we were looking for more curb appeal.

Yeah, curb appeal. 'Location. Location. Location.' had a tough spot last year, didn't give away enough liquor - had to bring some back. Location and signage. And Open Bowling...

That was the year a lot of us went with boxy conduit & pipe structures, looked like a half-scale Levittown.

I plan to use one advertising the lapfront property I have to offer.
