MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR BULLETIN BOARD EASY TO READ

With spring coming quickly,  you should think about your outdoor bulletin board and the information about activities you want to convey to the community.  Maybe your church, neighborhood, or community center already uses an outdoor bulletin board and you want to let families know about upcoming events. Whatever it may be, you need to make sure that above all, your bulletin board is easy to read.

With our product, there are two approaches:

1. If you use a standard tackboard to post notices (use normal pushpins, on our weather resistant self healing vinyl board), try to enlist the help of a school teacher in your neighborhood who knows how to make a board clean (not cluttered) and readable with big cutout letters and notices.

2. If you use a letterboard insert (ours comes optional and usually just sits inside the enclosure having slotted grooves to hold white letters), then you should only put up the most important information such as the date and time of an event.

Either way, KEEP IT SIMPLE and resist the temptation to put all the information on the board.  That is why we offer a top or bottom panel for displaying your web site.  People are often in their cars when they drive by the outdoor display board so don’t expect them to stop and read an essay!

So prepare for the coming warm months. Make sure your bulletin board is easy to read!
