Ordering Political Campaign Materials: The Ultimate Checklist 

Are you preparing to run for local office? Whether you’re a first-time candidate or a seasoned politician, you want political campaign materials that will make the most impact, especially when working with a limited budget.  

Don’t worry – we can help! Here’s a checklist with all the campaign materials you need for success. 

Yard Signs  

There’s a reason yard signs are a political campaign must-have. You can use them to increase visibility and awareness of your campaign in residential areas, encourage supporters to display them in their yards and place them strategically in high-traffic locations to reach a broader audience. 

Vinyl Banners  

Utilize vinyl banners at campaign events, rallies and public gatherings to showcase your message, attract attention from a distance and create a professional look. Vinyl is the most common banner printing material and is great for both indoor and outdoor use.  

Direct Mail  

Send direct mail pieces to voters in your target area to introduce yourself, communicate your platform, share endorsements and encourage voter turnout with personalized messages. When you work with a printer to send direct mail for a political campaign, they can pull mailing lists based on voting history if needed to reach the right audience.  

Palm Cards  

Distribute palm cards at campaign events, rallies, door-to-door canvassing and public gatherings to provide voters with a concise and informative overview of your campaign. This might include your name, photo, key messages, platform highlights, contact information and relevant endorsements. 

Road Signs  

Road signs provide essential campaign information and direct supporters to polling locations or events. 


Launch petitions to collect signatures from supporters and voters, rally community engagement and address specific issues or initiatives relevant to your platform. You can even add branded clipboards or pens for a polished touch!  

Precinct Maps  

Make it as easy as possible for voters to show their support for your campaign. Create precinct maps to identify and target specific areas within your constituency, prioritize campaign outreach efforts and coordinate volunteer activities. 

Car Magnets  

Distribute car magnets to supporters and volunteers to display on their vehicles, increasing visibility for your campaign. They are easy to remove after election season ends and don’t leave any residue behind.  


Rally support and create a lasting impact with personalized political flair. You can keep it simple with just your name or add a campaign slogan.  

Door Hangers  

Opportunity is knocking to get your campaign message out there – and it’s easier than you think. Distribute door hangers in targeted neighborhoods to introduce yourself to voters, communicate your campaign message and provide essential information about your platform. 

Bumper Stickers  

Drive your message home with custom bumper stickers! Offer them to supporters to display on their vehicles, increasing visibility and awareness of your campaign on the road. 

Lapel Stickers  

Elevate your campaign with custom lapel stickers. You can provide these to volunteers, staff and supporters to wear at events, rallies and public appearances. 

Event Tents  

Durable, easy to set up and customizable with your campaign branding, event tents provide shelter with style for outdoor engagements. They allow you to create a designated space for supporters, distribute campaign materials, showcase signage and banners and engage with voters. 

Campaign Materials FAQ  

What information should I include in my campaign materials? Include essential information such as your name, the office you’re running for, your campaign slogan or message, contact information, website or social media handles and any relevant endorsements or affiliations.  

How do I ensure that my campaign materials are visually appealing and effectively communicate my message? Work with a professional graphic designer to create visually appealing designs that convey your message clearly and resonate with your target audience.
