BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Stork & birthday sign rentals is a fun and happy business.

 

Our Stork Lady stork signs are rented and placed in the yard of a family that has welcomed a new baby. It’s an exciting time for them and it’s fun for us because we get to help people celebrate one of the happiest events of their lives.

 

Our signs are rented by parents, grandparents, other family members, and friends. Often another sign is rented for the grandparents’ yard . . . to announce to their friends that a grandchild has arrived.

 

Our giant cupcake and 6-ft tall flamingo birthday signs are fun and rent for many different occasions, including graduations, anniversaries, bridal showers, pool parties, garden parties, barbecues, etc.

 

 

This profitable home business will fit around anyone’s schedule.

 

Our business owners come from all walks of life: single parents, married couples, stay-at-home moms, full-time professionals, retirees, and young families. What they all have in common is a desire for a steady stream of extra income and a willingness to do the work to earn it. 

 

 

Our signs are copyright and trademark protected . . . not to mention beautiful!

 

Everyone who sees our signs loves them. They’re made of the highest-quality materials and are easy to install. And they’re very eye-catching . . . which will bring your business a lot of attention!

We have three baby sign designs: stork, carriage, and sailboat.

 

The most popular rental is the pink or blue stork because it's traditional.  Stork sign rentals will be the bread & butter of your business.  But the carriage and sailboat are fun and allow you to offer variety. They are designed so they may be used for either gender simply by switching out the accessories. They may be ordered in the following colors: pink or blue for gender specific, and navy or lavender to use for both sexes. 

 

 

We offer many designs and color options for our cupcake birthday signs.  And we have a 6-foot tall flamingo sign. Our cupcakes and flamingo signs are not included in a business package. They may be purchased as the per sign price by our affiliates. 

 

Our cupcakes signs were designed to give our partners many options to match the theme of a party or the personality of the recipient by using interchangeable toppers that coordinate with each sign.

 

Our 6-foot flamingo is loaded with personality and can change moods depending on the hat he wears.  We offer party hats, mortarboard with tassel, sombrero, crown and a top hat. 

 

 

We have two business start-up packages to choose from. They are limited to stork signs. The smallest business package is 4 stork signs and the largest is 6 stork signs.

Most of our partners begin with the 6-signs package. It’s the package I began with 20+ years ago and it will give you enough signs to work with so you won’t have to turn down rentals as you’re growing.  The 4-signs package is usually purchased for very small towns or rural locations.

 

Both business packages include stakes, hardware and all of the accessories necessary to rent, as well as information you need to know to be successful in creating search engine friendly social media accounts, how to write effective website content for the search engines, as well as everything you need to know to build a successful lawn sign rental business. We have 20+ years of experience operating a yard sign rental business and we are available by phone and email to give active help, support, and advice as you build your business. No matter which package you begin with, needing more signs is a “problem” everyone wants to have.  You may order additional signs via our online store as you need them.

 

 

Once you receive your signs, you’re ready for business!

 

Our signs are ready to be rented the moment they arrive. Each sign comes with a strong, heavy-duty stake, hardware, all accessories and simple installation instructions. You will have to purchase a cameo silhouette vinyl cutter to make the lettering and embellishments for the signs (hearts,  polka dots, confetti), as well as a few additional supplies you will need.  

 

 

This is not a franchise so all profits belong to you. We do require a $200 renewal fee each September if you choose to renew and continue in business.  

The $200 renewal fee due each September, assuming you renew your business, is banked to help cover the costs of  legal fees to protect the TM from people who copy the designs and begin businesses with them.  As of September 2021, we've spent several thousand dollars each month for the past 18 months to protect the TM for the benefit of all.  We believe $200 is fair. The proceeds from about 2 rentals per year will cover it. It pays for 1/2 hour of our attorney's time.  Protecting the TM is in the best intereset of us all so we don't have infringers in our back yards competing with us using the same designs. 

 

We do sell the supplies you will need to continue in business (bundles, sibling stars, dog bones, clouds and scalloped plaques) via our online store. 

 

We won’t add another partner within a 20-miles of your home.

 

When you decide to become a Stork Lady© affiliate and purchase a package, we will not sell to another person within 20-miles (driving directions) of your home address.  We a 20-miles buffer zone between all partners.  If someone near you is interested in a package, we will use Google Maps driving directions to determine whether their address is within 20-miles of yours. You are not limited to renting storks within your 20-miles buffer zone.  If you are willing to drive the distance, you may rent anywhere you’d like to. We have no policed areas, as that is a feature of a franchise and would require costs none of us want to pay.
