How to Choose the Right A-board Pavement Sign for You!

tipsigngirl1

Sometimes choosing the right pavement a-board sign can be a daunting challenge! Should you opt for a poster holder, a chalkboard or even a swinger?

Hopefully we can iron out some of the wrinkles and make the whole process an enjoyable one!

One of the first questions to ask yourself is what would you like your sign to do for you? Bring in more customers, give directions, advertise your products or provide health and safety information. Your answer will indicate whether you need a sign that you are able to update and change or whether it will have a fixed permanent message.

Location is next! Where will your pavement sign be situated? On a high street, on a windy roadside, a garage forecourt or perhaps a shopping centre. Weather and environment will affect the longevity and success of your correctly chosen pavement sign and needs to be taken into consideration. A high street will need a slimmer perhaps smaller sign allowing pedestrians to manoeuvre, whereas a swinger sign would suit a windy roadside location perfectly.

Weight is also a very important factor that is often forgotten about.  Will you need to bring your sign in at the end of the day? If so it will need to be lightweight enough to move but sturdy enough to withstand the elements of mother nature, the larger water-filled signs are great for this situation. If your pavement sign will remain outside permanently then the heavier the better!

The last but most certainly not least decision you will need to arrive at is style. Your sign will represents your brand and business, it will be the first thing a customer sees and therefore must be a true representation of your business and ethics. If you have a woodland café then a metal sign just, will not, cut the mustard, only a rustic traditional wooden a-board would suffice, and we have a good range of those to choose from.

I hope the above key points will help you arrive at the perfect a-board pavement sign for you, however if you need some specific advice please don’t hesitate to log on to our live chat or give us a call on 01353 665141, we will be happy to share our knowledge with you 🙂

A-Boards & Pavement Signs

 

Swinger Pavement Sign

Swinger Pavement Sign

A-boards and pavement signs are a great way of advertising your promotions but choosing one can be a little daunting. The first thing to recognise is the purpose that you need your a-board for, is it permanent advertising sign, to display a poster or for you to write a message or a combination!

Our Swinger Pavement Signs can be digitally printed in full colour on both sides, which enables you to display a permanent message, this type of sign is very versatile and suitable for all types of business from hairdressers to garages! The swinging ability of the sign ensures it is suitable for windy locations and will get noticed.

Our popular and most economic poster holder a-board is our Snap Frame A-board, which is lightweight and easily transportable making this a-frame perfect for exhibitions, indoor advertising and outside in sheltered locations. If you need something a little more substantial then our Swinger Poster Holders are perfect for the job. They can be filled with water or sand to ensure stability, the poster holder itself ‘swings’ in the wind and therefore this pavement sign can be used in many locations and is a popular sign for most high street stores.

If it’s a chalkboard pavement sign that you are looking for then the decision has to be the price!

This a-board is available in A1 size, is suitable for chalk and chalk pens and is perfect for cafes, restaurants, greengrocers and butchers.

You can also combine the two and have a pavement sign that is a chalkboard, holds a poster and has your name or logo at the top!
