Printed A-Frame Signs by Blue Dot Signs

Named for the way they are often placed on a sidewalk outside a storefront, the signs are meant to get the attention of people walking by. Your sidewalk sign can include printed graphics that can be swapped out when needed, or a chalkboard surface to write your own message on. The customizable messaging makes this sign a lasting investment for a business.

Customization Options for Sidewalk A-Frame Signs

A-frame signs are freestanding signs that are easily distinguishable by their standalone, “A” shaped appearance. They consist of either a:

  • Folding Frame – These are shaped like a capital letter A with a handle on top to make them extra easy to fold and transport.
  • Panel Stand – These are made of one large, tall panel connected to a base filled with sand to stabilize it.

Both models are double-sided so that the message on them can be seen from either direction.

The panel stand frames are available primarily with face dimensions of 28”x44”. The folding frames have more face dimension options, including:

  • 13”x24”
  • 18”x24”
  • 24”x24”
  • 24”x36”

The height is also variable for folding A-frame signs, from 31.5” to 46” depending on the particular model.

Types for Sidewalk A-Frame Signs

We offer three kinds of face designs for A-frame signs, with each type presenting different advantages in different circumstances. These face types are:

  • Message Boards - These simple faces offer five or seven lines depending on the model for letters, numbers, and symbols to communicate simple messages that can be quickly read and understood by passersby.
  • Chalk Boards - If you want to change your sign frequently, if your business is a restaurant with daily specials, for example, a chalkboard a-frame lets you erase and rewrite a new message as often as you want.
  • Interchangeable Inserts - These have the advantage of being able to perfectly replicate your logo, photographs, and any other graphics you want for your sign. You can get multiple, full-color inserts printed for your menu, ad campaigns, or any other purpose you want and change them in and out of your frame.

The signs are made of metal or plastic and can be kept outdoors for longer periods of time, although they should be taken inside and properly stored at the end of a day or event to help them last longer and keep them safe.

Benefits of a Custom A-Frame Sign

Outdoor message boards are a long lasting sign that many companies use to share a temporary message. Their design and flexibility offers several benefits such as:

  • Convenient - With easy set up and the ability to change out messages, A-frame signs are simple to manage in terms of placement and graphics.
  • Noticeable -A-frame signs are generally placed in walkways where their closeness to the ground puts them in people’s line of sight.
  • Durable - Plastic and metal frames help A-frame signs endure exposure to outdoor weather conditions like sun, rain, and wind. They should be brought in during more extreme conditions to lengthen their lifespan.
  • Portable - Whether made from plastic or hollow aluminum, A-frame signs can be folded flat and lifted by almost anyone, making it convenient to transport them from place to place, or simply to bring them inside at night.

Perhaps the best part of these signs, besides their durability and portability, is the fact that they’re able to be reused. With interchangeable inserts, chalkboard faces, and message board faces, once your event or ad campaign is finished, you can easily take it off your A-frame and replace it with something new.
