Real Estate Sign FAQ
Do all real estate signs have to be placed in the ground?
While some of our real estate signs are designed to be placed within the ground (metal real estate frames and yard signs). We do offer other products such as plastic or metal A-Frame signs that do not have to be placed in the ground. These products can be placed on harder surfaces such as concrete or dirt.
Is professional installation assistance offered when I purchase a real estate sign?
We do not offer any professional installation when it comes to real estate products. Most real estate signs we offer require little to no installation. If you do feel as if you need professional help, we recommend finding someone local to you.
Are your real estate signs easy to install and set up?
Real estate frames and signage is usually super easy to set up and display. The only sign that will require a bit more installation or set up would be the real estate post.
Can I purchase different types of real estate signs using the same design (ie. flag banner, yard sign, sign rider with same design) in a single order?
Yes, this is possible. To order different sign types with the same design, you will need to design each sign type separately in our design tool.
Can I use real estate products for other display and advertising purposes?
Real estate signs do not have to be used for real estate at all. In fact a lot of these signs are used at sporting events, political campaigns, or any form of advertising for any industry. It all comes down to what information you put on the sign.
Are the signs included with the purchase of a real estate frame? If not, where would I go to purchase compatible signs for the frame?
When purchasing a real estate frame you will need to include the 24” x 18” sign with your order. We do not currently sell any of the frames separately. Additionally, the 24” x 6” sign riders are not included with the purchase of a real estate frame but can be selected easily in our customizable options.
What exactly is a real estate frame? What about sign riders?
A real estate frame is a metal frame that can contain one or more signs. Typically, the frame has either one or two sign riders above/below the main display area that holds the 24” x 18” sign.
A sign rider is a smaller sign that is placed above or below in a real estate frame. The industry standard size for a sign rider is 24” x 6”.
What material is the frame made out of?
The frame is made from iron with a black powder coat finish. The black pwder coating helps make the sign last longer outdoors.
Is the real estate frame similar to the yard signs you offer?
The real estate frame is a sturdier iron while as the yard sign with h-stake is more flexible wire bottom. Typically, the iron frames can be placed in harder surfaces and the yard signs would need to be placed in a softer surface.
Can I order a double-sided real estate frame sign? What if the back side of my sign is different from my front?
The real estate frame comes in double sided. Simply select the double-sided option in our design tool to enable this. If the back side of your sign is different, upload a different design to the back side of the sign using the design tool.
Do you offer blank signs for the larger graphic of the real estate frame?
You can order any of our signs blank. You would simply select the blank template and order from there.
Can you remove the signs from the frame and switch it with a sign of a different material?
Yes. Switching out your signs to a different material type or updated signage takes less than a minute with the frames easy tension clip that allows you to slide your sign(s) into place.
How long will a real estate frame last?
With proper care and storing, the real estate frame should last 5-8 years. This lifespan will vary depending on weather conditions and storage. We recommend not leaving them outside for weeks on end. Try to frequently store away to make the lifespan last longer.
Do you print directly onto the surface of the sign?
We print directly on all of the materials offered for our real estate signs.
What are the common uses for real estate frames?
Real estate frames are primarily used for open houses, pending sales, and recently sold properties for real estate purposes. Metal real estate frames can also be used as point of purchase displays at outdoor events, or used as directional signage at fairs and community events.
How does the real estate frame remain in the ground? Are there are anchor points to tie the sign down?
The real estate frame is designed to be placed into solid ground or soil. The bottom of the legs are pointed in nature for this exact purpose. The legs of the frame can be driven into the soil using a soft-head mallet (to avoid damaging the rider frame). There is also a foothold on either side of the frame to help insert the frame into your desired location.
Installation & Care
How do I display or install my real estate frame and sign riders?
Begin installation by placing your larger graphic and sign riders within the frame. To do so, you simply need to pull back the lever on the back side of the sign that will pinch and hold your signs in place. For each sign slot there is a small level on either side of the frame to hold your graphics in place. Pull these away from the frame and easily insert your respective signs into their locations. Once your graphics are installed, take the frame and place it within a soft surface such as a lawn or grassy area. To secure in the ground, drive the frame 4”-6” into the soil using a soft mallet or hammer or the footholds below the bottom sign rider area.
How do I care for my real estate frame? What is the best way to store it?
Caring for and storing your real estate frame is simple. Use a damp cloth to remove any surface dirt on the frame or on the signs. Do not use heavy cleaning solutions to remove the dirt - this could damage the sign and frame. To store the sign, we recommend keeping the box it is shipped in - this will provide sufficient protection when storing on a shelf or against a wall. If you’ve discarded the box we recommend storing the frames upright so they don’t scrape against each other. Do not place any heavy objects on the frames while they are stored. We recommend removing the graphics from your frames and storing these separately to avoid damage to the signs themselves.
