Better than a Bucket: Ideal Shield’s Sign Bases Offer Stability & Appeal

Parking lot and storefront signage have been around forever. But that signage is more important than ever now because of the Coronavirus pandemic. These directional and informational signs have become a necessity for all businesses as curbside pickup, delivery, and designated parking is the new norm for retail shopping and dining. 

With so many signage needs, most businesses have gone in one of two directions: The quick route or the quality route. 

The quick route consists of putting together a make-shift sign system made from a plastic bucket, bags of concrete or gravel, a 2×4 wood post, and a stapled on paper sign. This is by far the cheaper route (roughly $30-40 each) but the problem with going that route is that it’ll also look that way to the customers. And that’s not the only issue. If you go with the basic bucket, your signs and stands can confuse customers as it looks like they’re pulling up to the wrong store since the buckets all brightly feature the logos and color schemes of whichever home improvement retailer it was purchased from. 

 

Yeah, not the best look. 

The other option is taking the more valuable, reusable, aesthetically appealing, quality route and ordering the market’s top-selling curbside signage option from us here at Ideal Shield. 

Made of HDPE plastic, our Pyramid Sign Bases are an upgrade over DIY or concrete sign bases. Fill with water, pea gravel, base gel, sand, or even concrete depending on stability needs. Available with wheels to make it portable, our Sign Bases can be done in any color to meet branding needs. That includes the base, signpost, and we can even get your custom signs for you as well.
