We all know what yard signs and lawn signs are (hint: they’re the same thing), but what about letter yard signs? What are they, and how can you use them to spice up your lawn?

In this simple guide, I will show you what yard letter signs are — and more! You’ll learn:
How to use them for special events
Different configurations you can utilize
Cool ideas to try on your lawn

Let's dive right in!

  3. Chapter Three: Fun Lawn Letter Ideas to Try
  4. Chapter Four: Benefits of Large Letter Signs


Chapter One: What Are Yard Letter Signs: The specs

Technically speaking, large letter yard signs are printed on a durable 4 millimeter coroplast material. So what does that mean? Coroplast is a waterproof, extreme heat and cold resistant, yet lightweight plastic. These features make these signs ideal for lawn placement, especially in locations where the weather can be like playing rainy roulette. 

The letters can be cut as high as 18” and the width will vary depending on the font that you select. Speaking of fonts, we offer three engaging typefaces to choose from:

  • Capouncine basic black italic
  • Helvetica Neue
  • Urbane Rounded Heavy

That was the physical breakdown of the attributes and details for these letter signs. Next we will cover how to use them for your events.


Chapter Two: Using Letter Yard Signs for Events

My mom and her neighborhood friends always decorate each other’s front yards for birthdays. They place pink flamingos in all sorts of places to surprise the Birthday Girl when she returns from Bible study or the craft store.  It seems fun, and everyone enjoys the gesture! 

Now, imagine if they added some custom flamingo-pink “Happy Birthday” lettering? The landscape would be complete. 

Yard letter signs can be ordered in a prearranged birthday message, in many different themes and color patterns. This manages certain design decisions that may not be easy for everyone. It is like choosing a premade cake at Dairy Queen instead of designing one yourself. No shame in that! 


Chapter Three: Fun Lawn Letter Ideas to Try

So we all decorate for birthdays, the holidays etc. What about events like the first day of school, passing a drivers test (the third time's a charm). There are many other occasions to be celebrated besides the obvious. Just use your imagination! 

You could also display letter signs for getting good grades or just for fun! Cheer up the people in your life with alphabet-shaped plastic lawn implements. Yard letters can be used like a “just because” card or random flowers on the kitchen table. But in this case, the whole block gets to see it! 


Chapter Four: Benefits of Large Letter Signs

The benefits certainly outweigh the risks! Who wouldn’t love some colorful yard letters in their dandelion-sprinkled grass? These decorations are:


  • Easily removable
  • Customizable
  • Water-proof
  • Low Maintenance
