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 change out the sign rider’s existing message?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Because we direct-print our riders with durable UV inks, you must replace the rider to change out the message. With all of our real estate signage solutions, it's easy to swap out one rider with another – so, you can quickly change "New Listing" with "Pending Sale" and "Reduced Price" to "Just Sold!"

Q:
How do I display or install my sign riders?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Installing a sign rider is simple and can be done in minutes. Our sign riders are specifically designed to fit inside a real estate frame without hassle. To insert a sign rider, pull away the tension clip on the back of the real estate frame – this will allow the sign rider to slide into place. Once you've inserted the rider, release the tension clip to secure it in place. For ½-inch thick material, we recommend using the pre-drilled holes to further secure the signs inside the frame. After the rider has been installed, use the foot mounts to place the real estate frame into the ground and complete your display.For the A-Frame and Posts you will insert the rider in the clamp at the top of the sign and tighten the screw, securing the rider in place.

Q:
How should I maintain and care for sign riders?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Caring for your real estate sign riders is easy: You can remove any surface dirt from the sign rider by just using a damp cloth. You should avoid using heavy cleaning solutions (like bleach) to remove dirt; doing so will damage the sign.
Q:
What's the best way to store my sign riders (and signs)?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

For storage, we recommended repurposing the box the sign riders were shipped in as a protective case. Storing them in the shipping box will allow you to place them on a shelf or against a wall without worrying about scratches, being bent, or experiencing other damage. If you haven't retained the original shipping boxes, we recommend storing the signs on shelves and covering them with a protective cloth or material to prevent any damage.

Q:
I have a standard Real Estate sign with a phone number on it. I want to replace my phone number with the phone number of my agent. So I would like to have some kind of rider with the new phone number on it that I could put over the existing phone number
Asked 4 days ago by William H.
A:

Ordering another rider is good. But all you want to do is cover up the phone number. Covering it with a decal is another option of doing it. Make sure to measure the size of the phone number and choose the exact size when placing an order for a decal.

Q:
how do I order a sign rider with hanging holes on top and bottom with grommets?
Asked 17 days ago by Jordan P.
A:

Real estate rider signs come with no grommets. as a standard order. We can have this requested. This would be a custom order. Or by the grommet kit accessories where you can install your grommets to the signs.

Q:
I need a rider with name and phone number on it how long does it take to produce and rush ship
Asked 4 months ago by Kim H.
A:

Riders have a 3-day printing turnaround time, plus shipping. Please make sure to finalize the order before the cutoff time, 6 pm PST.

 

Q:
Do you hole punch the sign rider to hang below my company real estate sign?
Asked 8 months ago by Bonita R.
A:

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. An option to add a punch hole is not standard on the site, but this is doable. Feel free to call or chat with us to have this added finishing for your riders.
