We've been lovin' this celebration life for years, and we've learned a few things! Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions!
What is a yard card?
A Yard Card is a display made up of different elements such as phrases, numbers, letters, and decorations to celebrate a special occasion or commemorate a significant event. These items are then arranged in your grass to create a stunning visual sign referred to as a Yard Card!
What are yard cards made of?
Yard Cards are made of durable and resilient corrugated plastic. The bright and vibrant images are printed directly to the material creating a waterproof and weather resistant material. We love that we can reuse our materials over and over again, cutting down on waste like that of single use decorations.
What kind of things can you celebrate with a yard card?
You can celebrate or commemorate any event or occasion with our signs and displays. We have the honor of sharing birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, graduations, retirements, engagements, births and baby showers! Some of our FAVORITE celebrations are MILITARY HOMECOMINGS!!!

We will not participate in profane, obscene, or offensive activities or displays. This policy applies to use of Take & Stake materials in any manner which may reflect poorly on Big B's Yard Cards based solely on the discretion of ownership.
What happens if it rains?
Great news our yard cards AND our artists LOVE the rain! We don't mind a little liquid falling from the clouds, and most of the time we can find a rainbow somewhere near by to enjoy. Our yard cards are made of durable and waterproof corrugated plastic.
What if a BAD storm springs up?
As we all know Florida weather can change rapidly. In the event a severe storm system moves into the area please call 904-333-3444 for assistance.
Should I take the yard card down if the wind is too bad?
In most circumstances our displays can handle wind, rain, and heavy thunderstorms. That being said, we respect your property and home, if you are ever uncomfortable with the level of wind please contact us immediately. We will work with you to find a mutually beneficial solution.
In the event of severe weather your yard card artist may delay installation to allow the storm system to pass. You will recive notifications via text with the estimated time of arrival. In the event of prolonged severe weather you will be given the option to reschedule or request a full refund.
In the event of a tropical storm or hurricane, yard card rentals will be canceled. You will be given the option to reschedule for another date, or request a full refund.
