The No Room/World citizen yard sign cover will let the world know where you stand! As the world is slowly dividing between those who welcome diversity and those who fear it, it is more important than ever to let people know that you are a safe person who sees all of humanity as one family. Wearing buttons and T-shirts is nice, but a yard sign makes an even bigger statement.
This two-sided fabric banner is designed to either slide over a standard yard sign frame, or hang from a curtain rod in your window. The front is our popular “No Room in my Heart for Prejudice” design, and the back has our equally popular “World Citizen” logo. You can post your yard sign perpendicular to the road so that people can see both sides, depending on their direction, or you can choose one of the messages to face outward.
The cover is designed like a pillowcase. Just slide it over an old yard sign or sign frame, and use a safety pin at the bottom to hold it in place.
For people without yards, it also has a gap in the side seams so that you can slide a dowel rod or curtain rod through the top and hang it in your window or fly it like a flag.
The size is 25″ wide by 20″ tall to fit a standard 24″ wire frame, or to slide over an existing 24×20 yard sign, such as a “Yard Sale” or “For Rent” sign. (You may have one in your garage right now.) It is printed on 100D polyester. It is designed for outdoor use, but all colors will fade in the sun eventually.
SIGN FRAME IS NOT INCLUDED. You can buy both metal frames and blank signs with stands at most hardware stores. Here are links to blank signs at Lowes or Menards and a link to a sign with a metal frame at Home Depot. Most other hardware stores will also have them. If you buy a blank sign on an H wire stand, the flag will slide over the top and the sign will keep the light from shining through from the back. If you buy an actual metal frame, it will be more expensive, but much more sturdy and last longer. Don’t get the kind with 1/2″ channels that professional realtors use, or the sign won’t slide over it. Instead, get the kind I linked to at Home Depot. This kind of frame often comes with a sign in place, but if it doesn’t, slide a black trash bag over the frame first to keep the back design from showing through when the sun is behind it. Trim the bag to 20″.
For a free yard sign, contact your local political party office and ask if they have any of last-year’s yard signs laying around. Put a trash bag over it, then this sign over the trash bag and nothing will show through.
Why a fabric sign instead of corrugated plastic? Because I can ship this 1st class anywhere in the world for a fraction of what it would cost to send a rigid sign. In many cases, you would spend much more for the shipping than the sign. Shipping for a rigid metal frame would be even more.

Note: While this design has often been imitated, it started with us over 20 years ago. It is one more way to say “Black Lives Matter.”
