How to make a wood sign? Easy! Simply decide how large your sign needs to be. Find a piece of scrap wood large enough and hammer a 4-foot-long (or longer) wooden stake to it. You’ll then have a sign you can set up anywhere. Next, you have one of the most gratifying kid art projects around because they’ll see their art on display every day. The key is to paint your sign with acrylic or any other all-weather paint that will be visible from a distance. I did an outline of letters and the children filled the letters in with paint.

We chose a bright yellow and offset it with a black outline.

We hammered the sign into the ground only a few inches so we can easily remove it and change positions.

We then started our live marketing campaign encouraging passers-by to try our farm fresh eggs.

Always have additional marketing materials on hand to support your startup company’s mission. We choose to encourage an honor system of sorts, leaving extra items that people can take for free and leave a donation if they feel so inclined.

And a mascot or farm critter to help bring in the masses always helps, too.
