After Catherine’s Tour de Utah last week in search of a worthy Best Darn Yard Sale Sign winner, I didn’t have high expectations going into today. To my surprise, yard sellers were out in full force today and there were a lot of quality sign designs. It was interesting to note the sign competitions going on since a lot of sales where in the same neighborhoods. This made the need for good signage all the more important. Some rose to the occasion and well, some didn’t.

What contributes most to a successful yard sale? Well, here at Signs.com, we think that great signage is one of the most important factors of success. We’ve all seen some really horrible yard sale signs – you know, the ballpoint-pen-on-a-piece-of-cardboard sign that no one can read? But we’ve also seen some really great signage – clear and succinct with stellar design and placement.
