Printing and Shipping

Please submit your order at least 10 business days before your in-hands
deadline. Final artwork must be received 7 business days ahead of your deadline
in order to ensure a timely delivery. Rush orders are possible but make sure to check with your sales associate.

Sign Materials

Signs are printed on corrugated plastic (Coroplast®). The material is highly weather-resistant and has a low-gloss finish. Coroplast® is inexpensive and extremely lightweight. This combination makes it a popular choice for temporary outdoor signs, such as construction notices.

Mounting Hardware

Mounting hardware is included when signs are attached to barricades prior to
shipping. If you are ordering signs through OTW please let us know if you would
like hardware shipped along with your order. If you are printing your own signs,
please note that the barricades themselves DO NOT include mounting hardware.
The hardware we use to mount the signs include the following (per side):

  • Four (4) tap bolts, 1/4” diameter by 1/2” length
  • Four (4) flat fender washers, 1/4” inside diameter by 1 1/4” outside diameter

Custom Sign Ideas

Advertising

The most common use of our custom printed barricade signs is for sponsorship. By using this advertising space, your barricades can actually pay for themselves! Make sure your advertisers know the artwork instructions for the barricade signs, such as canvas size, file types, etc. You can print out the PDF below to use as a resource.

Branding

The second most common application for our custom barricade signs is branding for venues and events. This may include the event or company logo, images, slogans, or mottos. Having a consistent brand presence helps to increase awareness and establish positive associations, especially if the event is photographed and shared on social media. Barricade signs are also a great place to feature upcoming events. Create an event calendar to let visitors know how else they can get involved.

Directions & Instructions

At large events, on campus, or in parking lots, help visitors navigate with signs featuring arrows and maps. If your event has specific safety regulations, you can feature a list of guidelines. This will help keep the event organized and make sure guests stay safe and informed
