These new baby announcement yard signs typically stand between 18” and 48” high, depending on which one you purchase. Generally, the larger the sign, the higher the price.
Most of the stork yard signs are made from a high-quality corrugated plastic material which makes them weather resistant. If you want the sign to hold up in the weather, be sure not to buy the cardboard ones. If you are buying for indoor use, then cardboard signs will work fine.
When ordering your stork or baby announcement yard sign, you’ll want to make sure that is comes with a wire stake (larger signs will generally require a larger metal H-Stake or something similar). Note that you can buy wire H-Stakes at the Home Depot or Lowes.
DIY installation is really simple. Just insert one end of the wire stake into the yard and place the other end through the flute of the sign.
If you are ordering the baby announcement sign as a surprise for someone who lives in a different state, get in touch with one of the neighbors and ask if you can ship to them and have them install it.
If you or the person you’re buying for is having twins, matching stork sign sets are also available to announce the new duo (see examples below).
