WATERING & MOWING REMINDER
Please remember to hose or spray down your yard in advance, in the area that your sign will be installed, to help aid in setting up your installation in a timely manner as well as securing your signage into the ground from wind. If it is not watered and we cannot get the stakes in we cannot guarantee the sign remaining in place if it is windy and we may need to come and take it down early. Non watered yards are non refundable if we have to take them down early due to the wind. If it has recently rained, then you are good to go!
Please make sure that your yard is mowed BEFORE your installation date or will be mowed AFTER we remove the sign. If the install is in someone else's yard, an HOA managed area or townhouse complex, please confirm the mowing schedule. We cannot set up if it is scheduled to be mowed. Mowed around signs cost you an extra $50 for the cleaning fee.
We believe life should be celebrated and WE ARE here to help you do it in a BIG way!
Our messages are MASSIVE signs that we custom install to help you celebrate your day in the most outlandish ways possible! Ever heard of yard signs or card my yard? That is what we do! We set signs up in your yard, on concrete, patios or indoors! Anywhere we can find a spot, we will figure out a way to put up a sign! We can make any event that much more grand!!!
So whatever you are ready to say, say it with Sign Gypsies and rent a greeting today!
HOW IT WORKS
PICK THE DATE & MESSAGE
Fill out our request for rental form with your event date and custom message. Submit it to us to see if we are available on your event day with the items needed for your sign!
Within 24 hours we will confirm with you by email that we are available on your event day!
We then send you a confirmation of your order and an invoice by email. You pay online to secure your spot!
Please mow prior to arrival and water your yard from April-October where the sign will be installed. A wet yard helps us quickly set up your sign for your surprise! If you have dogs, please pick up the poo before we arrive. No one wants to hit a landmine!
WE INSTALL YOUR SIGN
We do all the work for you! First, we gather all of the elements for your personalized yard display. Then we install the signs the night before or early in the morning on the day of your event.
WE TAKE IT ALL DOWN
Roughly 24-26 hours later, we will be back to pick up the sign! You don't need to do a thing, except CELEBRATE!
Watering and Dog Poo
Unless we have had a downpour within 24 hours of your event, from April to October we ask that you water your yard 24 hours in advance and on the day of the sign installation to help allow us to secure our signs into the rocky, very dry, hard soil.
It is not pleasant to try and set up in a poo graveyard nor is it fun for the recipient to step in poo while you are trying to take pictures.
Please, please, please pick up the poo.
Windy Season is upon us! While it is always breezy here, the first 6 months of the year tend to be brutal for wind. We have tested out several methods to help secure and "lock in" our signs in heavier gusts of wind, but we cannot guarantee that the sign chosen will work in all conditions. Mini Messages tend to dislike the wind the most due to the larger MEGA graphics used and the nature of wind with large objects. While we will secure the MEGA's to the best of our ability, please beware that the design may need to change prior to installation so that we can better support you and your celebration through a windy day so that we do not have to cancel the set up altogether.

RENTAL INFO & PRICING
We typically set up on the morning of your event starting at 8 AM and are open seven days a week. If you'd like us to come at a specific time, we can do that too! You choose a time and we will schedule you as close to that time as possible. Times are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. The best time to schedule us is after someone has gone to school or work so that they come home to a huge surprise awaiting them! If they are home, take them out for lunch or dinner, close your blinds, put on their favorite movie, have them remote for school from a different room etc.
For events, graduations, dances, festivals etc. schedule us 2-3 hours before the start of your event so that you have 24 hours to enjoy your display! Having a week long event, not a problem! Rent us for the entire week! We can also set-up any of our signs for indoor displays. Use us for Bridal showers, Wedding displays, Baby showers, Prom, Father and daughter dances...the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a smile!
How does this work once we confirm your date? We ask for a picture of the house or the event venue in advance to make sure we know how much space we are working with before we begin our design process. We take from 1-2 hours in advance laying out and hand choosing what design will work for your greeting. After we arrive on location, typical set-up time takes about 30-60 minutes depending on the sign you choose below. Take-down takes roughly 10 minutes.
Signs can also be used for commercial use. Grand Opening, Open House, Open for Business, Dine-in Seating, etc. COVID has put us all into another mode and mindset. Let us help you and your business survive during these times.

$50 for moving any of the signs after we have set up the display due to liability, damage and integrity of the design implemented by a non employee of Sign Gypsies. This includes the trademarked company sign. This is a franchise policy that we must adhere to and will enforce. If you do not like your set up or if it is in the wrong location on your property, please call us immediately and we will come and adjust your display*. If you do not wish to have our company sign set up off to the side of your display please choose another form of celebratory signage from another vendor as this is our only way of signing our displays.
*A fee may be enforced for redesigning or moving the entire display to a new location once it has been installed. Please discuss this with your installer before the changes are made by them.

$$$ Outside Service Area. If you live outside of our service area don't worry! We may be able to provide you a rental or find another affiliate closer to you that can provide you a rental.
*Please remember that we are a rental company and we continue to monitor and check everyone of our signs for wear and tear. Just like the rental of a bouncy house, some of our more popular graphics will experience use and you may see a ding, scratch or a minor fix upon close inspection. This is normal. We do our best to maintain our graphics/signs to the highest quality to save you money and to prevent unnecessary waste into our landfills for a tiny cosmetic flaw. This does not effect the nature of the sign nor the ability to still take amazing photos and surprise a friend or loved one. Just the nature of a rental.
