I just use simple printouts and then use packing tape to give it a
pseudo-laminated surface. It works well enough (I tend to find low-tech
solutions are often more practical.)

Signs are weak as enforcement mechanisms. I try to use them more for
information. I've found the best practices are:

1) Put packing tape over them to make them a bit more durable.
2) Use a large Arial Black font to make them readable.
3) Use as few words as possible. No one wants to read a novel.
4) Link to the wiki for more details, including qr code. Use the
nburl.netURL shortening site.
