Yard signs are now more convenient to mail and easier to carry
Months ago, Iowa State University’s Admissions Department contacted us about having yard signs created. They know yard signs are well-liked by newly enrolled college students (and parents) to showcase their educational next steps. Of course, it’s a “win/win” situation since universities can also benefit from the visibility and advertising the signs provide.
Until now, however, it was difficult to get these into the students’ hands or yards. “The size made them cost prohibitive to mail, with the fixed frame and rigid sign,” said Erica Fischer, Associate Director of Marketing & Campus Visits at Iowa State. “Even handing them out at events became awkward as people had to lug the bulky signs around during their visit,” she explained.
Well, we vowed to find a solution to this challenge and teamed up with a trusted partner to create an easier method of distribution. We’re happy to announce that with our newly designed, collapsible metal stands and soft polybag signs, yard signs now are able to be easily packed in tubes to be mailed or distributed on-site.
Magellan Promotions can handle the complete solution – from simply providing the yard signs and frames to packaging the tube and to mail them out on your behalf.
