We offer professional weather proof corflute garage sale signs to help people find you. The signs, if you haven't already seen them, can be purchased here. You can still print off our free garage sale signs by clicking here. (They're on the right hand side)

The new garage sale signs have proven to be a big success with most visitors buying a few to place on the road side in order to attract more people on the day of their garage sale. In fact, I have received emails from garage salers who have bought the signs saying just how great the signs were and how happy they were with the response they got from using them. I must thank everyone for their supportive comments!

As we all know the best way to advertise your garage sale is quite simply - GOOD SIGNAGE. I cannot stress that enough! I dont know how many times Ive seen bits of torn paper and scribbled cardboard dangling upside down on street corners - that you just cant read! Its a sure fire way of missing out on potential visitors and sales! This would have to be one of the biggest mistakes made, and I see it all the time. Remember - GOOD CLEAR SIGNAGE attracts people - which means more sales and MORE MONEY!

Anyway, Im getting off the point here, but I just feel for people who miss out on sales because of crappy garage sale signs! 

The signs we sell are basically similiar to everyday real estate signs that you see placed around the neighbourhood. Our garage sale signs are BIG (600mm X 450mm), BRIGHT RED and and have a large heading saying "GARAGE SALE" with plenty of white space for you to add your address and other details. Its always best to write with a thick nikko pen if possible for two reasons. 

  1. Firstly, your signs will be clearly visible and readable from a distance 
  2. Secondly, if you are to ever have another garage sale, you can use a bit of methylated spirits and a rag, and simply wipe off these details and re-write your new details! It works a treat and it SAVES YOU MONEY.

You can clean your signs up and give them to friends and family to use or keep them for another time -- its up to you! But it sure saves having to pay for new signs each time!

Just be sure when wiping off the details that you dont wipe over the coloured section or you'll probably wipe that off too - leaving you with a blank piece of corflute!

Have a great week, and remember for those that may have purchased our signs -- be sure send in your comments. Oh, and for those who are after some garage sale signs here is the link.
