The source of political yard signs may be somewhat of a puzzle. Politicians are always thriving on the free advertising to promote themselves and boost their public campaign status. The more they can do for free, the better, and politicians have no qualms about doing it by putting up their own yard signs.
The main source of yard signs for political candidates is probably the people themselves. In fact, the majority of yard signs are put up by people in a community or neighborhood. These signs are usually put up by people who are passionate about their candidate and their cause, and who want to support them. However, the campaign will also do their part to ensure that there are plenty of these signs out there on the streets in order to generate some free advertising for themselves and for their cause.
The basic requirement for a lawn sign is a large piece of wood, preferably a board with a large flat surface on one end and a flat surface on the other. There may be some signs available that have a vinyl backing, but these do not do as well as the wooden ones. Since these signs have to stand up to the elements as well as being placed in an area with people walking around and driving by, they tend to warp easily and tear out with a breeze.
Most political candidates prefer a long piece of wood for their yard sign, because it will give them enough room to write their name and a slogan. They also like a larger piece of wood than they would like in their garage for obvious reasons. Some signs are even attached to the side of their house or their car in order to maximize their exposure. Some candidates may also try to attach their yard signs to their vehicles and cars in order to increase their visibility even more.
There is no end to the ways in which political candidates are trying to market their yard sign. Some will even take it down if the wind is blowing too hard and damage it. This is done most often when they know that their political opponents are already placing theirs up. Although it may not be as much fun as actually placing your own sign up, you will still have it up long after the election is over.
