    Where do you all get your signs to use in cheers from? I’m shopping around for some and was just curious where was best for everyone

    We use a local screen printing company. It helps save on costs a ton and a quick turn around time.

    I actually use a friend who owns a vehicle wrap business...so when looking don’t think sign businesses only.

    Also, ask your parents-some may have useful equipment and can silk screen or do cut vinyl at home.

    Local sign company. Ask if they print vinyl on a white coroplast signs. Then ask what sign thickness they offer. Cheer signs are usually between 4-10mm. 10 is the heavy duty ones that hurt when they hit, but will never bent or dent. 4 is your lightweight ones for games and quick use.

    Standard size is usually 18 x 24 inches. When you tell them the colors you need, they will ask you to verify the choice related to their vinyl pantone colors so you can select the ones best for your program.

    Don't forget to use the backs and plan the rotation correctly so they are usable! :)

    This if it's simple word needed. We have ordered our signs in the past but needed/wanted some to take to camp so I did them on my cutter real quick. They sell the plastic at home depot.
