Lawn Signs-Yes or No?

Before I get started on this topic, I have something to say. I DON'T HAVE A COMPUTER!! Yes, that is correct. My MacBook Pro, which I have had for close to 3 years I believe, just started having some problems. It's actually the first trouble I have ever had with it, so I really can't complain. Any regular PC would have crashed and died by now, with all the wear, tear and mileage I put on that MacBook over the past 3 years. Thankfully though, my AppleCare Protection Plan doesn't run out until this May, so I was able to drop it off for repair-and they're saying I should have it back in about a week. Until then, I am borrowing a laptop-I am thankful to have something to use, but after 3 years of Apple awesomeness, this is taking some getting used to!

Okay, I'm done with the public service announcement, and we can return to regular programming-which today, happens to be about Lawn Signs. What do you think-something useful for businesses and officials during election time, or not such a good idea? I have seen some that are really great, and others that make me just shake my head, or, more commonly, get frustrated with people's lack of grammatical or spelling knowledge! It goes back to being raised by an English teacher (my Mother); and I drive friends and family nuts by always correcting the spelling and grammar on signs, bulletins, announcements, and anywhere else.

Right now we have a stretch of road that is covered with signs for the upcoming local elections. On our way back from Tae Kwon Do last week, E commented about one of the signs for a school board election. It's a piece of wood painted yellow, with block letters painted on, asking you to vote so and so for the school board. While it does get his name out there, it just doesn't appear real professional. There's another candidate who has signs that were made up by a professional sign business, and they just look so much better! If I were campaigning for someone, I would definitely recommend ordering signs-not just making them myself on a piece of plywood!

  1. I agree! Some of the homemade signs really look bad. They may be saving money but I don't think the general public likes them!
