The best thing about a private property sign is that, once it’s up, no one can come and complain to you that they had no idea what they were doing when they were trespassing. You can turn around, point to your sign, and ask them how in the world they expect you to believe that they missed your large, colourful sign with ‘No Trespassing’ and ‘Private Property’ written across it?
Private property signs are the most effective way to keep people off your property to begin with. With just a simple sign, you are informing all law-abiding citizens that this is private land. These signs usually use combinations of red, black and white, to signal a warning to those approaching. You can include phrases like ‘Authorised Personnel Only’ or ‘Violators Will Be Prosecuted’, or a pictogram of a one-way sign, to ensure you get your message across.
Put your private property sign in a clearly visible location, and if you are earmarking a large area of land where you want to indicate that hunting, fishing, hiking, etc. is not permissible, it is important to place several signs with related text all around your property to ensure that no one can miss them.
