Molded Plastic Signs Made To Last
"The clips are molded as part of the sign," says Steven Branscom, operations manager for Evermark, Inc. The lettering and color graphics are also part of the high-density polyethylene plastic mold. That design process along with a UV-protectant, allows the signs to be sold with a 7 to 10-year warranty against fading or cracking.
"They are lightweight - 1/3 lb. - but will withstand 80 mph winds when horizontal," Branscom says.
At $5.95 the 5 by 12-in. signs come with a big variety of standard phrases - "No Hunting," "For Sale," "Private Drive," etc. Blank signs cost $3.95, and come in a variety of colors, including the purple signs recognized as "No Trespassing" signs in several Midwest states.
Custom signs are available with company logos and artwork, with metallic, fluorescent, holographic and other options.
"They're 100 percent recyclable and made in the U.S. out of 70 percent recycled material," Branscom says. "The farm and ranch industry is our biggest customer base, but we are also growing in urban settings and other industries."
For example, Evermark donated 1,000 address signs to Greensburg, Kansas, to help people find their way around town after it was destroyed by a 2007 tornado.
