We printed the design onto a 4 foot by 8 foot piece of corrugated plastic. This plastic is known for being used in yard signs and roadside signs because it is very durable and lightweight. Landscapers can bring these signs with them, step stake them into the ground when they start a lawn and pick them up when the lawn is finished. We have this same material at 4'x8' because it is so lightweight and also waterproof.
After we print the design onto the board, we use a warm lamination system to apply a dry erase finish to the board. The dry erase finish covers the entire board and works best if you use a black Expo brand marker. When the tournament is over, be sure to remove the dry erase from the board in order to avoid clouding.
To save you money on shipping, we score the back of the board so that it can fold down into a smaller box. This also helps when transporting your scoreboard from one tournament to another or just the original tournament it was designed for. The 4'x8' then folds down to fit into a 2'x4' box. When you receive your scoreboard in the box, you will open it all up, remove the tape provided, and reapply the tape over the scored seems. This will make sure that your board stays open during use.
Mounting your scoreboard is probably the best thing that you can do to insure that it doesn't blow anywhere. Down by the ocean, you never know what kind of winds you might get, so use 4 screws and 4 washers to screw it into a large board or the side of a building. We recommend the washers because it allows the screw to hold onto more surface area. Try not to attach the corrugated plastic board to 2 posts because it can act like a sail if the wind gets picking up fast enough.
Shipping days are counted by weekdays (no weekends or holidays) and the day count starts on the day following the ship day. So if you need a check by Monday and you order on Friday, you will need to choose "Overnight" delivery. We can assist you on choosing what shipping option would be right for you to make it to meet your deadline. Use the chat on the left hand side of the page to ask us for advice.
Ground shipping is the cheapest shipping that you can choose. Some of our items are large and when you use anything but ground ship the costs go way up because they are then measured by dimensional weight instead of the actual weight by UPS.
Below is a chart for UPS and FedEx Ground shipping. 3 Day - Next Day - 2nd Day options also available in cart.
FedEx Ground to a HOME that would be scheduled for monday delivery based on week days will be delivered on Sat.
