Low Flat Rate Shipping Pricing from Atlas Signs and Plaques

Delivery Truck

Honestly, We think that shipping prices most always seem to be a rip so we are always searching for ways to get them lower

The truth is that FedEx, UPS, and even the USPS charge what we think is a lot to get your new plaque from Lake Mills, Wisconsin to your home or business. Many shipping options are also based on distance and that complicates the issue even more.

The latest and greatest way Atlas is using to save customers money is by using Flat Rate Shipping on as many signs as possible. Shipping rates are now based on the dollar value of the order and are valid for shipping to the contiguous 48 states. The only catch is that we choose the shipper. Your package from Atlas could be shipped USPS, FedEx Ground, or UPS Ground. All are good at what they do.

Here are the current flat rate shipping prices.

  • $0 – $100.00    –    $11.00
  • $100.01 – $250.00    –    $17.00
  • $250.01 – $490.00    –    $22.00
  • $490.01 and up    –    $33.00

If you go to the Atlas Shipping Page, you can learn more about some important shipping issues.

Flat rate shipping is proving to be less expensive for you, the customer, and the rest doesn’t matter. It is all about you.

New Design for Ground Mounting Stakes

Ground mounting stake for signs and plaquesNew stake design makes close-up viewing of signage easy

Atlas Signs and Plaques ground mounting systemSome clients using plaques as identification signs have desired ground mounting stakes that placed signs meant to be seen from fairly close at an angle for viewing and to keep the stake shorter.

The  new single stake does just that. Now when educational or wayfinding signs are placed near a path or in a garden setting, they are pointed at the viewers eyes.

This stake mounting system was designed by Atlas Signs and Plaques and is made of quality materials to look good for a very long time. Everything you need, except a screwdriver, is packed for easy and quick installation.

Of course you can still choose the straight, non-angled, version. When you are placing your order, just choose the desired stake length, and whether you would like straight or angled. Easy!

Speaking of installing signs and plaques, go to the Atlas Signs and Plaques Installation Page for more information and other sign mounting options.
