There is no law, but they should be placed at reasonable intervals of all points of entry and exit, such that they can be seen and noticed.

Do you know if there is a prefered or nesessary size of lettering?
Do I need to put NO HUNTING signs up or is NO TRESPASSING signs sufficient or should I put both up alternating.

Another expert found particular definitions of a posted land, which is how to properly mark a lot. He also pointed out that the destruction of your signs is also a crime.

Here are the applicable laws:

(4) "Posted land" is that land upon which reasonably maintained signs are placed not more than five hundred feet apart along and at each corner of the boundaries of the land, upon which signs there appears prominently in letters of not less than two inches in height the words "no trespassing" and in addition thereto the name of the owner, lessee or occupant of the land. The signs shall be placed along the boundary line of posted land in a manner and in a position as to be clearly noticeable from outside of the boundary line. It shall not be necessary to give notice by posting on any enclosed land or place not exceeding five acres in area on which there is a dwelling house or property that by its nature and use is obviously private in order to obtain the benefits of this article pertaining to trespass on enclosed lands.
