Yard Signs Cost $6 Each
We are selling yard signs at cost: $6 each. (When we buy 100 yard signs and stakes it costs around $600) No one is making profit on this (except the sign printer and stake maker). Everyone on the yard sign team is a volunteer.
Give ‘em Away, Or Ask For Donations To Help Cover The Cost
Some people might choose to buy a bunch of signs and give them all away. Some people might choose to ask folks for donations to help cover the cost of the signs. If you’re asking for donations you might want to suggest a $10 donation, with the extra money being used to put up free signs, perhaps on busier roads.
It’s Best To Put Up Yard Signs On Private Property (ask permission)
We recommend that you put signs up on private property where you have the permission of the owner or renter. The signs are more likely to stay up a long time on private property.
Quiet Streets Are Great, Busy Roads Are Best
While signs on quiet roads are great, strategically the most important places for the signs are on busy roads. Ask your friends if they know folks who live on busy roads who might want a sign.
Distributing Signs (how to):
Phone All Your Orca and Salmon Loving Friends
Phone (way better than email) your orca and salmon loving friends, and ask if they would like a sign. Calling is better than emailing because you can give a quick explanation about how breaching the dams will help salmon and orca and get a quick yes or no. A simple explanation will usually suffice: When the dams come down, the salmon will be able to get to a lot of spawning grounds in Idaho. Increased salmon mean increased food for the orca. And lots of folks may miss or never see the email.
