  • Where to buy "To Let" boards (and supporting poles)?

    Could someone tell me the best place to buy TO LET boards?
    Thanks in advance

    Yellow pages if you want someone local
    I once contacted http://www.sign-maker.net/ who looked quite good but in the end owing to the rather high cost for a one-off, I went and DIY'ed with a laminated A3 card knocked up with PowerPoint and ProntaPrint!

      Got mine from a company called 'Greenleaf' can't remember the website address, try a search.

      Cost about £35 each for two. If you email them a rough idea of what you want they will even design them for you.

        I just did a quick google search of 'letting boards' and found this one

        http://www.owner-sales.co.uk/html/online.htm £19.95 and you can pay a little extra for a fixing kit.

        and also found this link back to landlordzone where there is a whole directory of names

          Sourcing posts for 'To Let' boards

          I've decided to produce some 'To Let' boards for my own use. Finding a graphics company to knock them up was a piece of cake, but I can't find the slotted posts that they attach to for love nor money. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Please don't suggest that I make my own; I'm DIY impaired :-)

              Go to a DIY store or a timber yard.

              You are probably aiming for sawn timber of 45mm x 45mm x 2.4m (or thereabouts). They tend to be sold in packs of four.

                Greengriff came;
                Your "sawn";
                I concurred.

                  I used to go to Wickes, but it is a complete pain. Lets say you need 50 posts at so much a metre (no idea how much they cost). You then have to paint them, store them, fix your boards to them and fix the posts to wherever you would like to afix them to.

                  I use a company who store my boards, and erect my signs with posts which they supply for £4 a board - worth it just for the time factor for me.

                  Kind regards,

                  John

                    I think you just need a post and then get two foam boards printed. Stick them together but leave a gap in the glue between the boards to push the post through. Staple, nail or whatever the boards to the post.

                        I see loads of them with agents' boards attached to them - generally outside blocks of flats where the said agents are almost certainly fly-boarding (which is illegal).

                        I try my best to be accurate, but please bear in mind that some posts are written in a matter of seconds and often cannot be edited later on.

                            Yes, I've thought about stealing some, but I couldn't pluck up the courage to do it :-)

                              I have no problem in you stealing boards and you would be doing a public service. I have a significant problem in my area where agents will just stick up boards around a railings on a blocks of flats, most of them are fakes and only put there for advertising. But if you look in the local area, you will quickly be able to figure out which are the fake companies doing this...

                              Though the single boards outside individual houses are real. So don't steal those ones.

                              I had one agent who had the cheek to nail it to my building and I knew it was a fake. I called the agent concerned, but they were arrogant and took 5 weeks to remove it. If I had the time, I would have taken the board down and throw in accross their office.
