Contracts and Agreements
Have clear contracts and agreements ready for customers to sign, outlining your terms, payment details, and responsibilities.

Backup Inventory

Always have a few extra signs and supplies on hand in case of unexpected events, damages, or last-minute bookings.

Storage Solutions

Keep your inventory organized and safe with storage bins, shelves, or racks to ensure your signs stay in top-notch condition.

  • Storage Bins: You can choose from a range of storage bin sizes and customize them to suit your needs for letters, numbers, and frequently used decorations. This smart storage solution keeps your items elevated, safeguarding them from water damage, spills, and dirt while simplifying the process of locating what you need. Additionally, you have the flexibility to leave some pieces stacked and flip the bins upside down with the stakes facing upward for added convenience.
  • Storage Bags: Themes and sets can be conveniently kept together using storage bags with handles. They are designed to be stackable, allowing multiple bags to be placed in a vehicle without risking any damage or scratches to the cards.
  • Shelving: Shelving can be used to organize storage bins or create cubbies to store your flair or themes. Whether you are handy and can create custom wood shelves or purchase metal or plastic shelving from the store, there are lots of options.
  • Pegboards and hooks: Pegboards and hooks are simple and inexpensive storage solutions. Pegboards can be found at any home improvement store and come in various materials and sizes. You can organize and hang your stakes and tools on the boards for easy access. You can use hooks or long screws to hang staked inventory directly on the wall. With long enough hooks, you can put 1-2 staked happy birthday sets including flair on the wall. Since this is shallow wall storage, you can still utilize your space for its intended purpose.
  • Clothing racks: Clothing racks are ideal if you like to keep everything staked. Simply use metal boot hangers with clips to secure your inventory and then place on the clothing rack. You can organize your racks by themes, sets, or colors to make set ups a breeze. The clothing racks are typically on wheels, so you can move them around to make the most of your storage space. 

Cleaning Supplies

Keep your signs looking fresh by having cleaning supplies on hand, like wipes or gentle cleaners.
