yard signs

I have been using the rnd 4x6 yard signs for many years and have been happy with them but it seems like the last couple of shipments do not last near as long as they used to.I put flags out yesterday and this morning the flag was drooping off the stake and sometimes completly gone except for the circle around the stake. I not sure if they are meeting the letter of the law because they are not up 24 hours.I remember putting out a stake one round and it was still upright 5 weeks later.I justify the cost of the paper flags as they are good advertising,but not if they blow off the next day.Has anyone noticed this.

I do full color signs with them and I noticed that the color is not as good as it used to be. The sturdiness of the sign is still as good.

Instead of ordering them off the net. Find a local sign company to make them in shop for you.

They have cut their own cost by cutting the quality of materials used. Bet they didn't cost you any less.

RND, why are your products getting a bad review? From the posts, it seems like you are sending out a bad product. I still have around 250 signs left from my order, and they have done fine. I ordered them a couple years ago.

Mine from rnd seem fine, infact despite 10+ inch of rain in June I've still found flags in place when I arrived for next app in July, perhaps they have different quality flags they offer?

I have the same results.. Most of my RND signs are worthless after about 24 hours and I have a lot of issues with broken or severly curved sticks..
