Bandit signs, whos the cheapest?? - Posted by Corey (ND)

I am looking for a supplier for bandit signs (cheap signs you see on the roadside everywhere) I did a search of the archives but couldn’t find a previous thread about them. Someone gave an address and price from a company who did them cheap.

Thanks in advance

How about door hangers? - Posted by Tony (OH)

Anyone know of a good source of cheap door hangers? I have had very good luck with them in the residential side of my contracting business. Just a thought, and question too.

Good luck,
Tony C.

Personally, I would not make your own sign, unless you are a very good artist. I tried making my own and they looked bad.

If you hire a company to make them, they may be able to do it for $3.00-4.00 a sign. I do not mind paying that much because they will more than pay for themselves after one deal. Also, they give the appearance of a more professional company.

I’m not knocking the homemade signs, I just like the pre-printed ones better.

Another recipe - Posted by Jim IL

I also make my own signs on occassion.
The recipe that was given will work, until it rains.
The paper will fall apart and the marker will fade.
So, I went out and bought 50 of those plastic orange and black “For sale” signs, the back side was white.
I then cut them in half, making two sign surfaces.
I then got some stencils and spelled out my “We Buy Homes xxx-xxxx” and painted it on them with rustoleum red spray paint. Nice and bright, and the paint did not fade when it got wet.
Next, I took a drill and drilled two holes in the middle if each sign. (the whole stack at once actually).
Next, I got some 1.5 inch drywall nails, and some washers.
Then I attached the signs to phone poles around town, using a 4 foot step ladder.
This placed the signs just high enough that the village inspector could not reach them to tear them down easily. Since it is against the ordinances to place them this way.
They lasted up to 2 weeks this way, and then a village truck was sent out to remove them. No problem though, I got calls from them in the 2 weeks.
The total cost was under $50, and I still have paint, washers, screws, and stencil left.
So, next time, it will only cost me for the plastic.

Since there are not phone poles everywhere, I will also make some with stakes next time.

Try it, it is cheap and it worked for me,
