Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I order from CandidateSigns.com if I'm not running for office?
Yes. We sell to everyone. Our business has been around and in the political world for over 50 years! But if you love our printing and want to order it for your business, we do corporate work too. Our history in political jobs has allowed us to set our prices at the lowest possible, and those prices apply to business print jobs as well!
Q. What is Screen Printing?
Screen Printing is the process in which we take your campaign artwork and through a chemical and light process, we burn that image onto a screen. Ink is then pressed through microscopic holes in the screen onto the substrate. From there the ink is allowed to dry.
Q. What is the Union Label?
We are a Union Shop, and like all unions we are proud of the work we complete! A small "Union Bug" is printed in the right corner of ever sign that we produce (unless otherwise requested), but don't worry it won't be intrusive on your design. It identifies your signs as union made!
Q. Do I need the Union Label on my Signs?
Did you or the candidate you are order for receive Union Dollars in contributions? Does the candidate support or receive an endorsement by unions?
If yes, then we would recommend Yes, you should have it. It helps to show your support for the people that supported you.
But be aware! If a shop says they have a Union Label or Bug "Available," this usually means they are renting the Label and are not an actual Union Shop!
Q. Is the listed production time, when I will receive my signs at my house?
Unfortunately, No. The production time actually starts when we receive your approved artwork. Artwork is approved at your convenience - But the faster we get this, the faster you get signs! After approval, the production time begins. Most of the time we can beat or deadline, but we are never late! After production, you still have the standard ship/transport time - This will vary based on your location from us.
Q. Is the white coated paper in which my signs are printed on considered on of the colors I pay for?
The white substrate is not one of the colors in your printing process. This means if you order a 1 Color Sign, you will receive a white sign with the color you choose printed over that. A 2 Color Sign will appear that it actually has three colors - Your two colors chosen and the white substrate.
Q. How many Yard Signs should I order?
You need to ask yourself 3 questions:
1) How many registered voters live in my community? Remember people that are not registered to vote, probably won’t need a sign.
2) How many polling places will I need signs at on Election Day?
3) Will I be competing in both a Primary and General Election? If you order larger quantities of signs on the front end, to cover the entire race, then the price per sign is dramatically decreased!
Most campaigns for races such as State Legislature, School Board and other community boards, typically order quantities of 250 or more. City and County district races usually order 500 or more. And, City wide and State wide are almost always 1,000+.
Still not sure? Don’t worry. Call our sales team and they can help you decide!
Q. Are Stake Signs reusable?
Definitely! If your volunteers are good to your signs, then they can be used at all your events and places.
But remember, these signs are weather resistant, but not indestructible. Hail and dangerous winds may eradicate a few along the way.
No matter what sign you choose though, more signs will be lost to vandals and the opposition during your race, than will ever be lost to weather damage!
Q. How will my products by shipped to me?
Our standard shipping method is UPS ground, and we deliver to your home or office. Depending upon the size of your signs, they will come 100-250 pieces per box. With signs that ship with stakes or frames, they are packaged and shipped separately in order not to damage the printed product.
