Yard signs: they’re a staple of the all-American neighborhood. They also have a powerful effect on communities. One study even found that one yard sign can be seen as equal to six votes in an election.
With that in mind, it’s easy to see that yard signage has an important role in our country. That’s why they’re a great choice for celebrating the Fourth of July!
But what makes these holiday signs so impactful? And should you consider using yard signs for other holidays? Keep reading to find out!
Easy to Install
Unsurprisingly, yard signs are lightweight and very portable. Since most are made of thin metal and plastic, they are very easy to set up and take down.
The benefit of this ease of installation? Even (supervised) children will be able to partake in setting up a holiday sign.
What better way is there to celebrate the Fourth of July than working together to decorate as a family? After all, the holiday is about celebrating American values, like teamwork and kinship.
Wide Variety of Yard Signs
Holiday signs for the Fourth of July come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.
When you think of a yard sign, you may think of a rectangular shape. But in reality, they can come in the shape of a star or waving flag – perfect for July Fourth. You can also get designs with a sparkly finish, which mimics the shimmer of fireworks.
Yard signs are customizable, which sets them apart from other decorations. One look at a site like Printmoz demonstrates how much you can customize: text, color, and even shapes.
Unlike inflatables or lights, you can display patriotic messages specific to your neighborhood. “Happy Fourth, California!” is a more special message than just “Happy Fourth!”
Durable and Versatile
Despite their light weight, yard signs are actually very durable. Most yard signs can last between 2-5 years out on a lawn. Their design also allows them to common windy or rainy weather.
If you choose to use your Fourth of July holiday sign only for a month each year, your sign will last much longer. Where other decorations may be a one-time use, a holiday sign can last a decade if used seasonally. This also makes yard signs more cost-effective since you won’t need to replace them for a while.
Lastly, the yard sign is often associated with togetherness and patriotism. It’s been used for all sorts of community events, campaigns, and celebrations. Because of that, it’s become a part of American history, too.
Over 311 million people celebrate the Fourth of July, and your yard sign can make you a unique part of that group. The opportunities are endless with a varied, customizable decoration like the yard sign.
From durability to variety, there are many reasons to celebrate July Fourth with yard signs. You can even use yard signs to decorate for other holidays as well. No matter the occasion, you can always find a way for a yard sign to help you celebrate.
