Q. How do I fasten the signs to a fence?

Ans.
Use our inexpensive fence clips. They come in pairs. For most people, fastening a sign with our clips is actually a 'one person affair'.

Q. We have had an accident. Although no one was seriously hurt, we are worried that we need a better sign at the street corner. Do you have any suggestions?

Ans.
Consider adding a 'Blazer' to your sign. This fluorescent reflective sign snaps into the sign's metal post. It is hard to miss and could really help. Also consider a replacement sign. Over time, a sign's brightness may decrease.

Q. What’s the best size for a Video Camera Sign?

Ans.
Certainly, the larger the sign, the further away your message will be seen. The sooner someone contemplating an illegal behavior (vandalism, graffiti, trespassing) becomes aware of your surveillance system, the more likely you will be to help deter this activity. Savvy property owners actually post several signs - not just at the perimiter of your surveillance camera range, but also in traffic-heavy areas. Multiple signs reinforce your surveillance system and leverage your CCTV investment. The rule-of-thumb for legiblity, is that each 1” of letter height gives 25 feet of viewing distance. Other factors matter, however: lighting, angularity and, if you in a car, speed. The three signs below are most common/ The larger sign (24” tall) might be used along roadways, the 18” tall sign is often used on entrances, sidewalks or pedestrian areas and the smller 10” tall sign is used at the door.

Q. Do I need to add the penal code number to our No Trespassing Signs?

Ans.
The short answer is no. In fact you don’t even need to post a No Trespassing sign for it to be illegal. However, it takes out the ambiguity and makes the rules clear. A threatening sign will deter potential violators from trespassing.

So to, there is no penal code requirement for your sign. The warning is sufficient. However, posting the penal code can add extra emphasis on the fact that trespassing is breaking the law, and this extra boldness may thwart even more trespassing. In sum, the penal code is not essential, but it helps.
