Although roadside signage has become popular over the last hundred years, pedestrian traffic still requires a separate, easy-to-read signage solution. Enter A-frame signs. These foldable, free-standing displays are an ideal choice for retail and restaurant advertising, as well as any business that receives consistent foot traffic.
A-frame signs, also referred to as sandwich signs, sandwich boards signs, and easel signs, are defined by their triangular shape. Both sides of the sign can showcase sign graphics, custom branding, or even a dynamic messaging board for changing daily specials. When it comes to outdoor advertising in heavily frequented areas, few alternatives are more successful at enticing hungry patrons or impulsive wanderers.
What are the perks to using an A-frame sign?
What are a-frame signs made of?
Image 360 hosts a wide variety of a-frame signs consisting of few select materials. Contact us today, and we can help you find the perfect type of material for your restaurant, pub, bistro, or other retail storefront.
The three most popular types of a-frame signs are wooden frames, metal frames with interchangeable placards, and heavy-duty plastic. Read on to discover the pros and cons of each one.
Because the material has the potential to rust or blow away in inclement weather, we recommend taking these signs in at the slightest hint of rain, sleet, or snow.
We’d suggest using them only for indoor applications unless your business resides in a temperate, mild climate. Precipitation and snow can cause wood rot and corrode metal hinges.
Plastic a-frame signs may not have the heft of wooden signs, but they can be filled with water or sand to provide further stability in the wind. And weighing down the sign after placing it on the sidewalk can save you the heartache of having to lug out a thirty-pound sign each morning.
