All of our sign riders will receive a hole pattern that compliments either Oakley Post or Oakley Frame Holes. More detailed information about our holes can be found here. If you need a custom hole pattern to fit products you did not purchase through Oakley, please contact our Help Team here or call our Customer Loyalty Team at 1-800-373-5330.

Some colors may vary slightly from proof to printed product. Most of our customers will be viewing their real estate sign proof on a standard home computer or even cell phone. Variance in phone or computer graphics can cause some colors to appear brighter or more saturated than the final printed sign. For customers who need precise color-matching services, kindly send an inquiry to Help Team here.

The size of the text will depend on the size of the sign, font and layout of the sign. It is good to remember that the more text you add to a real estate sign, the smaller the text will be. For example, each 1 inch of letter height provides 10 feet of readability with the best impact. 3” tall letters make the best impact within 30 feet; however, they can still be seen and read from up to 100 feet away.

We offer hundreds of PMS colors for you to choose from for your real estate sign needs. Click here to view our color chart.

Your document should be created in CMYK mode so that the colors that you see on the screen most closely match the final printed product. If you create your document in RGB, the colors in your printed product may vary slightly. Many of the bright values produced by your monitor cannot be reproduced in print.

CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colors used in the printing process, whereas RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colors used by screen displays such as your monitor. Please note that JPEG files are almost always in RGB.

Yes, we can match color samples you provide. If you have a sample sign you would like us to work with, please contact us for shipping information prior to your order. Hide this content.
