Sign and Banner Making

We will have some signs and banners available at the rally, but not enough for thousands of demonstrators.

We encourage all participants to make their own signs and banners.

Can you host a sign and banner making party in your neighborhood?

All that's required is:

  • Floor space or a yard with something firm to work on. Plywood will do.
  • Material - canvas is good, but sheets will do.
  • Water-based paint in bright, bold, or very dark colors. Old house paint will work.
  • Wood to attach to either end of the banners and a staple gun. Even bamboo will work.
  • People, and you don't really need more than a few.

We suggest the banners be roughly 3' x 9', but smaller will do. Cardboard signs are easy.

For individual hand-carried signs, white cardboard or foam-core board are really good. It’s often possible to find old political yard signs on which to superimpose your own sign—and those yard signs have a central stick or two thin metal rods that are easy to carry, so you can hold your sign up high. Get big markers and use large print with fairly thick letters. More than one color is a good idea. If you put the words on both sides of the sign and hold it over your head, it can be seen front-and-back.

To answer further questions and find out what to do with the banners and signs when done, contact: Katy, katypolony@gmail.com, 510-763-1266

Below are some slogan ideas for signs and banners, but creativity is encouraged:
