Need advice on carrying a sign in freefall Can't Post

Hey everyone, I could use some advice, tips, warnings, etc. on carrying a sign in freefall. Im thinking of the typical Will You Marry Me? type sign (though my wife might insist that it say something else Wink). So questions:

1) What material? Im thinking the thin, lightweight corrugated plastic with rounded corners so its not dangerous if it gets dropped.

2) How big is manageable? Im thinking 24 wide x 12 tall, with oval holes in each end for handholds.

3) How do you exit? Holding the sign with two hands or one? Where do you hold it against your stomach?

4) How difficult is it to keep the sign vertical in freefall while staying stable?

5) What do you do at pull time? Drop it (seems like a bad idea), hold it in your left hand, or what?

6) I assume you need to exit last so theres no risk of someone colliding with the sign if it gets loose?

7) Other safety / logistics concerns?

In general Id appreciate thoughts from jumpers who have done this or assisted others in doing it. Thanks in advance.
