You have probably seen this in your neighbors’ year this year more than any other year, that’s right… a yard sign. Yard signs are a “thumbs up” statement for the displayed business/individual/cause that people are proud to share and advertise to those around them.
They are a frequent sign now, but where did the notion of a yard sign begin? How effective is such a small and common lawn display? Read on to learn about the history, assortments, and impact of the yard sign.
The History Of Yard Signs
The origin of the yard sign is believed to have started in Ancient Rome; the Romans would scribble on walls to advertise their political purposes. They didn’t have much room to write, so the message had to be short and concise to get their point across. Much like we see on yard signs now, there is little writing, but enough to make a statement. America embraced the yard sign in the 1820s when John Quincy Adams wanted a leg up on his political opponent. He convinced townspeople to put his signs in their yards. Since this election, yard signs have been used in every presidential election.
The Different Types Of Yard Signs
While it may seem to dominate your neighborhood during this election year, yard signs are for more than just political campaigns. Think of all that you’ve seen in your community; whether to show what school you support, the church groups you want to drive awareness to, or community events you wish to help promote, yard signs come in different forms. One other impactful type of yard sign is those that promote local businesses, specifically in the home improvement category.
