Oversized Flat Sign FAQ
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our oversized flat sign shipping! We hope these answer your questions.
What Is Freight Shipping and How Does It Work?
To ship items freight, they are put on a pallet and shipped via a trucking company. Due to UPS shipping guidelines, any boxes over 3’x4’ have the potential to be bent or damaged during shipping. We ship your items freight to ensure their safety.
Why Do Unscored Flat Signs over 3’x4’ Get Shipped Freight?
Due to UPS shipping guidelines, it’s very expensive to ship large flat items. They may be easily damaged since UPS may bend the packages to fit. This runs the risk of breaking your sign. If your oversized flat sign can’t be scored and folded, we will ship them freight to ensure the safety of your products.
Why Can’t My Sintra Signs Be Scored and Folded?
Sintra is a type of rigid flat sign and doesn’t have the hollow flutes like Coroplast does. Because of this, scoring a Sintra sign would cause it to break apart and be damaged, which is why we ship it freight.
What Does Scoring Look Like?
Scoring allows your sign to be shipped at the lowest possible cost while still maintaining their structural integrity. Below are some examples of what your signs will look like scored, both open and closed.
