Realty Marketing Northwest based in Portland, OR is auctioning off a property, and they needed a sign to advertise the auction. “They requested for us to install a wood sign on a four-by-four post into the ground,” Signs for Success designer Kimberly Hoffmann said. “We could certainly do that but I came up with an alternative idea—a skid sign.”
Since the sign only needed to be up for about 2 months, a post sign – usually used for permanent signage – wasn’t necessary. The other advantage to a skid sign is that you don’t need a permit to place one. “If we had done the post in the ground we would have had to file for a permit and have it approved by the city along with having the utility companies visit the job site and mark for underground wires,” Kimberly explained.
Skid signs are perfect for:
- Temporary signs
- Construction site signs
- Real Estate signs
- “Financed by” signs
- Sponsor signs
- Event signs
- Parking & Directional signs
Even though they’re considered temporary, skid signs are outdoor durable and have been known to last up to several years. For any project longer than 2 years, we recommend using a strong ACM (Aluminum Composite Material) sign face. Most of our skid signs Spokane, ranging in use from a few months up to 2 years, are printed on either corrugated plastic or MDO board.
This realtor skid sign was constructed of ½” MDO screwed to skid legs, with a printed coro (corrugated plastic) sign attached to the face of the MDO.
