When making signs, the Missing Pet Partnership recommends following the "5-5-55 rule":

"At any typical intersection, you only have five seconds and five words to get your message across to drivers who are passing through the area where your pet is missing."

Here are some tips the organization offers when making traditional lost or found signs:
  1. "Make them GIANT so that people driving by cannot miss them.
  2. Make them FLUORESCENT so that the color attracts the attention of everyone.
  3. Put them at major intersections near where you lost your pet (and in areas of sightings).
  4. Keep them BRIEF and to the point.
  5. Let them convey a VISUAL IMAGE of what you have lost."
