We are extremely proud of the quality of our product. Our blank boxes comes stamped “Made in the U.S.A” because all of our products are made in the USA by American hands. We stand behind our products and believe the quality is at the head of the market and competition. We try to attractively price our products to make it simple and affordable for our customers. Our goal is to provide a “direct connection” for those not buying truckloads of product at a time, who normally would have to go through various levels of distributors and pay higher costs. With our firm belief that our product meets the utmost standards and the prices we provide to customers, most products out there we have encountered fails to meet our expectations, and our customers’.

Discount or “wholesale” prices on individual orders are available based on individual order size.
What size of corrugated signs do I need?
We design our sign frames and heavy duty sign frames to work with 4 mil corrugated plastic signs.
What is the difference between your NC100 and NC200?
The NC100 is our most popular sign frame. It is perfect for situations where the sign frames will not be reused or collected for repeated use. The NC200 is our heavy duty sign frame, which has a stronger base but still accepts standard 4 mil corrugated plastic signs. They are great for use in rocky, hard or frozen soil thanks to their added durability and robustness. Additionally, many of our customers in windy locations prefer to use these during such weather conditions for their added durability. They are also better suited for applications where a sign will be placed, collected and later reused.
Galvanized or Bright Basic Wire?
Some of our sign frames are available as galvanized or bright basic. The galvanized wire has a zinc coating which provides significant rust protection compared to bright basic. Bright basic is simply uncoated steel wire with no rust protection applied.
What are gauges?
Gauge is a reference as to the thickness of the wire. The smaller the gauge number, the thicker the wire. Our standard wire usage consists of 7 gauge (.166” to .177”), 9 gauge (.138” to .148”), and .250” for the base of NC200.
Do you have Rider Wires or DWires? What are they?
Yes, we have always had these but are making them available for standard order. Our NC430 is an even lower priced option to our NC100. You simply use two NC430 30” wires per sign (one on each side). The wires are slid into the holes of the 4 mil corrugated plastic until the bend of the wire touches the sign. After inserting into both sides of the sign, place the longer ends of the wires into the ground. Our NC408 can be used to extend the top of one of our existings sign frames. 2 wires on placed on each side of 4 mil corrugated plastic sign until the bend touches the sign. Then the other ends of the wires are inserted into the top of the base sign.
