Check out these 75+ ideas from sayings to images to help you find the perfect homecoming sign after deployment. Near the end of deployment, it is a fun tradition for military families to welcome their service members home with homecoming signs and banners. Not only do these look great in homecoming pictures, but they serve a practical purpose too. Often a unit returning from deployment may have hundreds of service members arriving at the same time. The sign isn’t a requirement, and your service member is probably indifferent to the design. If you aren’t crafty, but still want a custom look, don’t panic!
You can create a design online using Powerpoint, Canva, or any free design program that lets you save your work as a jpeg file. You can then upload it to a place like Staples or Office Depot to have it turned into a posterboard sign. Making a Homecoming sign doesn’t have to be a time-consuming chore. Have everyone bring their own posterboard or sheets , then share supplies like paint , markers , stencils , and glitter so that no one has to make a big investment for a creative sign.
