You're given everything as directed. My biggest surprise was the size of the sign and the materials. It's much larger than I was anticipating, and it's made of a very study material, I want to say some kind of metal. The post holding it is also a metal-like material. Be careful, I cut myself on the edge of it. It looks like it'll last a long time - also, be careful applying the stickers. They seem very high quality and ARE reflective, but they are not forgiving if you don't put it on correctly. They are very sticky. Overall I'm very satisfied with this order, and got exactly what I was hoping to get.And yes, the stickers are in a small envelope on the back of the sign. If you miss it, then you need to get your eyes checked.
