    I have a client that wants some 48" x 48" yard signs for a political campaign. I've never made yard signs this large and I'm not sure what to use to stake them. What type of stake should I be looking for or do I need some type of frame for something this big?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Home Depot or Lowes sells stakes for fencing. They're only a few dollars a piece.

    What's more important is.... a 4' x 4' Cor-X sign isn't going to hold up well if you make it double sided with posts out at the ends. You're going to have to straddle both posts with 2 pieces of Cor-X.

    We put grommets in our 4x4 election signs. 3 on each end that way the customer can just zip tie them to a "t" post.

    Ok. That would make it much easier on me. I could just print the signs and put grommets on, then let them deal with the mounting. I like that.

    They use the stright rods like what a H-stake is made out of, put 4 of them in the flutes and stick it in the ground, done!
