Cardboard Companions

Special 1: Discover all of the cardboard standees.    

There are a total of 6 cardboard standees to find in "The Signal." Each cardboard standee is different, as each one is a different character. They are all characters from around Bright Falls, and each one has its own little back-story for the player to enjoy. After reading your last standee, the achievement will unlock.

Cardboard Standee 1 (Otis Anderson): After exiting the Tool store, take a right turn, and go towards the side of the building toward the street. You’ll find your first standee, Otis Anderson, there next to the fence.

Cardboard Standee 2 (Sarah Breaker): After hopping over the fence, you see a focus point where there’s a street that’s no longer there. Continue going left, and you’ll see plenty of words to shine your flashlight at. Among these words, is the second standee, Sheriff Sarah Breaker.

Cardboard Standee 3 (Barry Wheeler): After fighting off the deer float, and the truck, you should unlock the key to getting into the Church. Head inside, and Barry Wheeler’s stand is off to the left when entering. Behind all of the pews, near a window.

Cardboard Standee 4 (Cynthia Weaver): After using the massive floodlight shining on the moving words “Bridge,” you’ll see three train carts fall from the sky. Drop through the first one, and look off to the right. The standee is on a little cliff.

Cardboard Standee 5 (Tor Anderson): After running through the area of 1000 streetlights, you’ll come to an the entrance to the Sawmill. Before entering, there is an overturned Crane. Off to the right, you’ll see the
standee behind a tree.

Cardboard Standee 6 (Alice Wake): After jumping out of the warehouse building, you’ll come to the area with the words; “Memory,” “Bridge” and “Bridge.” Off to the right, you’ll see a truck next to a very large crane. Head toward the truck, and turn right again. The standee is in front of a pile of wood, next to the back end of a truck.

There's a great guide for this here: I was finally able to track down the last 2 I was missing (Cynthia Weaver & Tor Anderson).

Why not just use the achievement guide here on the site,I know it's not video but I used it for both the cardboard standees & the alarm clocks & except for a little bump at 6th standee (which is at the 2nd warehouse you jump out & not the 1st which made me worried I'd missed it) it went perfect & must say that the guides are very straightforward & easy to follow so my compliments to the chef lol ;)
