A-Frames (sandwich boards) have become very popular form of advertising for local businesses. They are called A-Frames because they look just like the letter “A” when setting up. If your business gets a good amount of business from foot traffic than an A-Frame would be a smart investment. A-Frames are portable signs that are ideal for business to place on the sidewalk to inform customers of any running promotions. Businesses have also been able to use A-Frames to direct people to hard-to-find entrances or exits. You typically see A-Frames used by real estate agents because of the ability of the frame to be packed up and brought to different properties.
One important thing to consider when designing you A-frame is that they can be single or double-sided. If you are going to use your A-frame for the sidewalk in front of your store, then choosing a double sided option would be the right choice. Typically, business owners choose to have the same design on both sides of their A-frame but you can choose to have unique designs on each side. Another design consideration is the color of the A-frame while having a simple white color is preferred for future usage, many business owners will use the color scheme of their business to help the frame stand out more. Remember that you can have your panels swapped out in the future, so designing your frame with a neutral color will allow more versatility in the future. At Dawn Sign Tech, a-frames come in about six different sizes and many different materials and weights. You can even add ballast to some of them so they don’t blow away in a high wind. You should also keep in mind who will be carrying the frame when you order it. A 200lb man will have no problem carrying a 40lb weighted frame but a 5’ tall 110lb woman might find it difficult.
