Friends Don’t Let Friends Throw Signs Away

Today, April 5th, is another election day in Missouri. Tomorrow, hopefully, will be another cycle of trying to remember where all of your campaign signs are so you can remove them from the public eye.

For various reasons, not all of them will get recaptured. These feral signs become an eyesore to passers-by and cause voters to become reluctant to place signs in their yards when they are asked. I personally know of several signs from the loyal opposition from the 2010 election that are still up almost six months later.

Of those that do get picked up, most will be tossed in the trash. Which compounds the problems as many candidates have chosen to go with coroplast signs. Archeologists 1000 years from now will find Obama/McCain signs in landfills in perfect condition. These things do not break down.

We are proud to say no client of The Rocket Group will be choking up the environment with signs we designed and contracted printing on. Our signs are cardboard and coated with a degradable coating that will break down in a landfill.  Better yet, our candidates have a very good winning percentage and usually use their signs for re-election campaigns.

Regardless of your outcome tonight, please find a better use for your leftover signs than landfill fodder.

 Thanks for reading!
