Sign construction

Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 9:52 AM

So, I'm going to make a double-sided sign for the concert that I can hold up while my dad takes video. Or the other way around.

Anyway, I'm not gonna say what it says because it's my idea and I don't want anyone stealing it and yeahhhh. But I would like suggestions as to what to use to make it.

What kind of posterboard should I use? I don't wanna use paper because I'm gonna put lights on both sides, plus glitter and sparkles and stuff so I can get noticed.


But yeah, what's the best materials to use? Do you have any tips on making posters? : D

    Go to an art supply store and look for foam core or cardboard. Its the same stuff people use for school projects. But, before you spend too much money, remember that if it isnt easily put away or folded, you probably wont be allowed to bring it in the arena, since it would interfere with other concert goers.

    Yeah definitely call your arena and get info on how big signs can be. I had to sneak my sign in to her speak now concert in Greensboro because they were saying they couldn't be larger than a certain size. I had the normal poster board kind so I folded it up and stuck in in my shirt!

    If you're using the lights i think you will use, I think it'll only work on one side. Because if you poke the lights through, the wire threads in and out of the back. And if you were going to flip it over, and you wanted to put lights in the back, all the wires would be showing on both sides.

    :/

    For the poster itself, use a thick piece of something. It can be cardboard if you paint over it. Arts and crafts stores sell a kind of poster board that has something in the middle. You'll know because you can put your fingernail against the middle and on top of the poster board and it'll make an indent. And it's very sturdy, not flimsy

    Okay, let's say I didn't use lights.
    Instead, I used glow-in-the-dark duct tape and put sparkles and glow in the dark stickers all over it. I'll be fine with that.
    But what's the best material to use if I don't have lights? xD

    If you use lights, get a thick poster board so you can attach the battery pack to the back of the poster without the poster bending. I used 6 strings of lights on my poster last year and got a thicker poster board from Michael's (I think it was like 1/2in thick) and it worked really well! It'll be in the same spot all the other poster boards are :)

    If you're not gonna use lights, just get regular poster board I guess! Really anything will work. You can still use the thicker kind for that though. Its a little more expensive (not much) but its way easier to hold. So that's probably your best bet!
