Outdoor Daily Specials Sign? Mon, 02/11/13 12:05 PM (permalink)
One of my clients is looking for a new daily specials sign; the legs on their old one (which uses plastic replaceable letters/numbers) are about to fall off. 
 
Any recommendations? It needs to be outside in all kinds of weather. They are not married to the current format, either.

    Bumping. A couple of more details:
     
    1) It won't be out overnight or in extreme weather (hurricanes, blizzards)
    2) We are looking mainly for one that can be written on (melamine?), preferably with a marker that won't wash off in the rain.

      I was going to write a how to (with pictures) on this but I just haven't had time to do it. sam's Clubs sells plastic saw horses or "A" frames. They are perfect for signs to be attached to. They aren't real tall but at 2 for $18.00 the price is right. I looked at their web site but couldn't find them or I'd send a link. Go to any Sams Club and they are on the shelf near the gloves and winches.I have a drive up so I bought 6 or 7 sets to line my drive up path with a picture of differant items on each one.

            The sign would have to be changed on a near-daily basis, though; that's why we are looking at something that can be marked (maybe with a removable plastic cover?). The old sign took 15-20 minutes to put together every morning.

              Here is a picture of a slightly different version of what I bought from Sam's Club. They are plastic and I plan on using velcro to attach signs to both sides. I have an excellent printer and can print large scale pictures of my food to attach to any surface (I'm using aluminum blanks the size of a highway speed limit sign) which can then be attached to the sign frame. They are light weight and very sturdy so they should suffer the weather well. You could velcro or screw any material to both sides and bring it in lay it flat and change your wording in a mater of minutes. I hope you understand this? LOL

                Dr. sorry took so long to respond. I have four of these in the back yard gathering dust and grime. Good idea, thanks.
