Made popular during the height of the pandemic birthday yard signs are a fun way to acknowledge a milestone beyond (or instead of!) a party. Yard greetings made of oversized letters can be customized with names, ages, and hobbies, or used for any welcoming purpose from the first day of school to a new baby’s arrival.
Read on for information on getting a birthday sign into your yard!
How Do Birthday Yard Signs Work?
A few local franchises rent these colorful, giant celebration signs in the East Bay. Not only do they look fantastic and surprise the birthday kid with a wonderful place for photos and cheer, but they also encourage neighbors and passers-by to cheer them on all day — sort of like the front yard equivalent of having a restaurant sing for your birthday. Unlike a loud song, these giant sign rentals last all day and are 100% reusable, reducing waste in our communities.
Justin from SG Bay Area says, “We pride ourselves on offering a variety of letter color and style choices, hundreds of personalized graphics, and full setups that make a big statement.”
The terms of sign rental are generally that they are delivered and installed the night before your event and removed the morning afterward. The letters are reused so the renter must not attach anything to them (balloons) or let kids climb and play on them. Bad weather will result in cancellation.
No yard? No problem! Hold yard sign letters up at an event.
How Do I Order a Birthday Yard Sign?
A couple of yard sign rental franchises operate in the East Bay and around the Bay Area. Hopefully, you can find one serving your zip code before the next big sign-worthy occasion strikes! (Or, create your own by ordering letters with stakes from Amazon.com)
