Frequently Asked Questions
Are the displays weatherproof?
Yes, graphics are printed on coroplast and, therefore, are weatherproof. We purchase our graphics from the best vendors. Each graphic is costly to replace as we only pick the best options for our yard card displays.
Do you set up displays in the rain or snow?
Weather can play a role in the timing of the setup of your yard card display. Yard Card Genie LLC reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a set up for pickup of your display. If this happens, we will contact you immediately and will work with you to arrange an alternate date and time. An alternate date and time is subject to availability. We do not set up in severe weather. We define severe weather as heavy rain, hail, lightning, winter storms and blizzards and heavy winds.
