Security Yard Signs and Stickers Guide

By: Ari Erenthal, Published on Jun 05, 2017

Many security integrators use signs or stickers with their company name and logo. Posting these in front the homes of residential customers encourages neighbors to purchase their own systems and, hopefully, discourages potential burglars. In this guide, we examine yard signs and stickers, including:

  • Materials
  • Coatings
  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Sizes
  • Placement
  • Security Stickers
  • Sticker Design
  • Ordering Stickers
  • Sticker Pricing
  • Sign Wording

Nope they buy them from us...

Our (Louroe's) stickers are only a couple cents apiece but we also do high volume printing of them.  We also send extras out for free to anyone who needs more of them.

We used to tell our residential clients that they could buy the sticker  for $299 AND we would also throw in a security system at no extra cost 

Could I get the security sticker for just $200? Bet I could sell the heck out of that.

Back in the stone ages when I was an operations manager for a systems integrator, the company owner stated that any employee who gave out alarm stickers to other than a legitimate customer would be docked $100 (1980's dollars) for each sticker. He tightly controlled the sticker inventory and was paranoid that a place with his sticker but no alarm would get burglarized and ruin his reputation. 

Anyone have some online recommendations for custom high quality UV & weather resistant stickers?

Vistaprint, we have been happy with the recent switch for us.

we give them away as part of the cost of doing business and figure it into the price of project, time, or advertising. 

after all so many out there , Just advertising.
