Also known as sandwich board signs, A-Frame Signs have a powerful way to attract customers walking by. A-Frame signs are relatively quick to make and they are an inexpensive way to advertise. Angel Gomez Signs has a vast selection of styles including swing signs, chalkboard pavement signs and water fillable signs. Regarding the graphics, we have plenty of options to choose from. We can paint directly on the sign, we can install vinyl, or we can create inserts that can be replaced at a fraction of the cost so you can display a different message as often as you need it without breaking the bank.
Bean and Tree Coffee. An organic feel.
Our friend Tracy at Coffee Bean and Tree asked us to make an organic-looking sandwich board. This A-Frame is made using cedar 2x4s and it has an aluminum board painted with chalk paint for menu customization and a smaller board to display their logo.
Oh yeah, it's that good. See for yourself.
This sign was made using 1/2" thick MDO plywood. It is primed, painted, and vinyl was applied for the lettering. We also added a directional arrow and a included two removable "OPEN" and "CLOSE" plastic signs to be attached with velcro accordingly.
Hophouse A-Frame. Dark.
This particular A-Frame sign was made with MDO, primed, painted, and vinyl was applied for lettering. We also added small casters for easy hauling, as the owner moves it out onto the sidewalk and brings it back daily.
Gets the point across, doesn't it?
We had free range to get creative on this one so we suggested a cyclist silhouette and the customer agreed. We used MDO plywood and as we do with most signs, we prime, paint, and apply vinyl lettering.
Need a more durable sign? Try plastic.
A plastic A-Frame sign is more durable and can withstand more handling abuse. It also gives you the ability to replace the message without spending a pretty penny. Once you own the sign, you can just order plastic inserts which install in seconds and come at a fraction of the cost of an entire sign.
And lastly, this one. Checkmate.
This A-Frame sign has a carved handle for easy carrying. It was made of Medium Density Overlay and was primed and painted. Then, vinyl was applied for the lettering. The sides hold a link-chain to limit how much the sign can open.
