What-Are-Real-Estate-Riders

What are Real Estate Riders?

A sign rider is a smaller sign that accompanies a larger sign or graphic in a real estate frame. Sign riders are usually placed either below or above (or both) the larger graphic in the frame. Additionally they are used on posts and even hang from other post signs in some cases.

They are most commonly 24”x6” but can be other sizes including 36” x 6”. They are most often used to provide additional information to a bigger sign, such as: “Under Contract”, “Open House”, etc. The primary use of sign riders is within the real estate industry.

Q:
Can I order custom-shaped sign riders – circular, triangular, etc.?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Sign riders are typically rectangular signs that measure 24" x 6" with a thickness less than ½-inch to be compatible with our real estate frames. However, we do offer custom-shaped signs for aluminum, plastic, and yard signs (corrugated plastic). Simply navigate to the respective product page in our top nav and customize your sign however you want!

Q:
Will my real estate rider have rounded corners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
We offer rounded corners in our riders for posts and for custom orders. Our riders for A-frames and metal frames, however, do not have rounded corners.
Q:
Can I order a double-sided sign rider? Can I print one message on the front side of my sign and a different message on the back?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Yes, sign riders can be printed single- or double-sided, and you can indeed have separate messages printed on each side. Simply select the double-sided option in our design tool to enable this. If the back side of your sign is different, just upload a different design to the back side of the sign using the design tool.

Q:
Do you print directly onto the surface of the sign rider? Or do you simply print onto vinyl and then adhere that to the top of the sign material?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

The design portion of the sign rider will be printed directly onto the surface of the sign rider material using UV inks. Printing the design directly on the material permanently adheres it, resulting in a long-lasting, vibrant design that's also weather-resistant. Visit the individual material page for more information about the printing process we use.

Q:
Are drilled holes an available option for sign riders?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Since none of our riders need drilled holes to be installed in their respective signs, we do not offer drilled holes for riders.
Q:
Do you offer blank sign riders?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes, blank sign riders are available for purchase. In our design tool, select a blank template to order a blank sign rider.
Q:
What are some of the common uses for sign riders?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Real estate sign riders are specifically designed for use in real estate frames. As we noted earlier, sign riders are primarily used to display additional messages and designs that complement or support the main graphic of a real estate frame or post. They're ideal for displaying at open houses, pending sales, and recently sold properties for real estate purposes. Riders can also be used for point of purchase locations and outdoor events, as well as for political and advertising messaging.

Q:
Are sign riders weather-resistant?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes, all of our sign rider materials (corrugated plastic, rigid plastic, aluminum, etc.) are designed to be weather-resistant, including the design portion of your sign rider. To prevent damage to your sign rider, do not display during heavy wind or inclement weather. We recommend visiting the specific material product page for more information on weather resistance and indoor/outdoor compatibility.
Q:
Are your sign riders resistant to fading and/or scratching?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Yes, our sign riders are designed to be fade-resistant as well as scratch-resistant under normal display conditions. Frequently displaying a sign in direct sunlight for extended periods of time, however, can result in damage to your sign. To avoid scratching the sign or design area, keep it away from sharp objects. When inserting the sign rider into a frame, carefully slide the sign into the frame with the tension clip fully pulled away; failing to do so can result in scratching the sign as it's inserted. Also, when storing your sign rider, be sure to cover it to avoid any scratches.

Q:
Is there a limit to how many sign riders I can add to my real estate frame or post?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
It depends upon the specific frame or post you purchase. Metal Frames are available in three configurations: Standard (no sign rider); Single Rider (one sign rider placed below the primary sign); and Double Rider (two sign riders, including one above the primary sign and one below the primary sign). A-Frames, meanwhile, can accommodate just a single rider. And posts can fit one rider on the top of the post.
