    Anyone ever done this? I think its a good idea. Maybe a lil tacky. Just run a temp drop wire on top of the ground to your sign after new installs. <Id ask the owner of course> Great advertising! Keep it lit for a week or two.


    I havent done one yet, its def. an eyecatcher.

    Yes, we light oyr sign's..hook into their transformer and go ahead and bury line to sign..just get it below the sod or just under mulch since you will be removing in 2 weeks.

    Or just use all reflective vinyl on the sign...

    would recommend against reflective sign...limits placement but most importantly lighting is what you do...light it up!!!

    I have alway illuminated my sign. It is the best advertising that you can do.

    I have always illuminated my sign. If you have done your job well, your new client/friend will be so happy with your work that they will be glad to let you do so. Keep in mind that your lighting work is only viewed after dark, so you really need to light your sign if you want anybody to know who did such great work!
