A small business in Butler County is showing a big presence in the community with large yard signs that are meant to bring joy to those who maybe can’t celebrate surrounded by family and friends during this time of social distancing. Card My Yard, run by Erin Herman of Hamilton, Ohio, is a 24 hour sign greeting company that specializes in larger than life, personalized sign displays for celebrations such as birthdays, graduations, retirements, anniversaries, etc. The company delivers and sets up the signs and then subsequently returns to take them down.
- The original Card My Yard started in Austin, TX in 2014.
- It has since expanded into more than 75 franchises across 20 states. Right now, the company is seeing an uptick in rentals due to the coronavirus unfortunately cancelling many in-person parties and gatherings
Card My Hamilton franchise owner Erin Herman says prior to COVID19, on a typical week, they would put up five or six yard signs — now they’re up to five or six a night.
Erin, along her with husband Matt, and with their three children, runs the franchise in the zip codes for Hamilton, Middletown, Monroe, Trenton, Oxford, Fairfield and several townships. Ordering a sign can be done at www.cardmyyard.com.
According to Erin, she does her best to accommodate all requests but availability depends on inventory. She recommends scheduling yard greetings at least a week in advance. Orders can also be made via phone at 513-259-4362
