- Signs must be printed single-sided, on corrugated plastic or Correx material.

- Signs must be delivered to the front desk at the Mercer Island Community & Event Center (MICEC), 8236 SE 24th St, at least five days prior to the requested posting date.
- Signs must be picked up from the MICEC no more than five days after the Point of Contact is notified that the sign is ready for pick up. Signs that are not picked up during this time will be recycled.
- Patrons will be responsible for storage of signs.
