Setting Up Rummage Sale Signs

I need ideas for how to set rummage sale signs up. I have them stapled to wire plant fencing, but the ground along the roadside is often stronger than the wire in the fencing. Also, when there is enough wind the metal wire bends and the sign goes flat. Please give me ideas of what I could add or use to make them stronger. I already have a lot of them made so adding something would be best.

usually when i put them up i repurpose abandoned election signs (that have the metal stand) and affix them to the grass

but it sounds like you don't have grass or dirt to do that with?

another thing i like to do is create sandwich board yard sale signs which requires finding creating a triangle with cardboard writing on 2 sides, the 3rd side is the bottom, and setting it on the ground, with a weight to hold it down on the unwritten side. If you have firm enough board, and duct tape, it is easy to make

I would make the signs larger and then use a stand to set them on. You can easily make one out of wood that can be used to post the signs on.

This way you can fix them and hold them down so the wind won't blow them over.

You can use cable ties. They are strong.

We gave up on wire signs years ago...until we were given a stash of the kind that are the heavy duty ones used by realtors for open house. We found those stay put and work well using heavy cardboard or poster board, poking holes in the sign and using wire rings to hang them.

Before we got the heavy duty wire, we just stapled signs...poster board for big intersections and 8 1/2 x 11 hot pink paper for walking areas...to light poles and trees and a few heavy cardboard ones got duct taped to street poles.

Our code guy is really strict, so make sure you follow your towns rules for how much in advance your signs can be up and when the have to come down.

Hope you make a lot of money!
