A-frame signs, also called sandwich board signs or sidewalk display signs, are the perfect combination of sturdy, portable, and customizable for advertising a sale or event. Placed directly on the floor near high traffic areas, these signs are easily displayed and moved for a custom, a versatile sign that is certain to assist you with your advertising and messaging goals.

A-Frame signs in NJ are often the best ones to use to draw more foot traffic into your store, announce a product, service, or special, or direct event attendees looking for where to go for their next meeting.

Perhaps the best part of these signs, besides their durability and portability, is the fact that they’re able to 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.

If you want the best of both temporary and permanent signage categories, A-frame signs are the way to go. At Blue Dot Signs, we offer many customization options for this popular type of sign, and we are ready to get started crafting the perfect A-Frame sign in NY for your marketing needs.

What is an A-Frame Sign?

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.

NJ A-Frame signs are relatively lightweight and easy to pick up and move wherever you want them to be. They’re 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.

A-Frame Signs Sizes

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.

Face Designs

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.

With faces that can be quickly and easily altered for whatever purpose you need, these signs are convenient, practical, and attractive. No matter what business you’re using them for, they’re sure to be beneficial.

Frequently Asked Questions About A-Frame Signs

A-frame signs

Are any a-frames only one-sided?

No. All of our A-frame signs are double-sided to maximize your sign’s visibility.

Can a-frames be kept outside for long periods of time?

Unless there’s extreme weather, yes. It is recommended that they must be taken inside when their immediate purpose is finished, such as at the end of the day or event. This will keep them looking better for longer, avoid theft, and make sure that the signs aren’t knocked over and damaged.

Can you help with sign design?

Yes. If you don’t know what you want your sign to look like, we can help design one that best reflects your business and its brand.

How do I clean my A-frame sign?

You can use a soft, slightly damp cloth with mild dish soap and lukewarm water to gently wash off any dust or dirt. Make sure the sign is completely dry before storing it.

How long do a-frame signs last?

With proper maintenance and storage, a-frames can last up to about five years or more. Keeping it dry as much as possible, inside when not in use, and stored in an upright position is ideal. Often the only limitation to A-Frame signs is the type of design that is displayed in the front, and whether it is still relevant over time. That is why most people come back for future sign faces.

How long will it take to get my A-frame sign?

Unless a great deal of customization is required, it typically takes about three business days to fabricate and ship an a-frame sign.

How much do a-frames weigh?

Depending on the dimensions of your custom sign, about 18 pounds. This doesn’t take into account the sand that the base of the double-sided panel signs contains, which can add another 10 pounds when full.

What are the a-frame interchangeable inserts made with?

The A-Frame sign inserts are usually made of corrugated plastic. They’re held in place on the frame with stay tabs on the sides.

What color are your A-frame signs available in?

The plastic a-frames are available in white, gray, or black. The metal ones are only available in black.

What kind of assembly is required for A-frame signs?

The panel stand model will need to have sand added to its base. Otherwise, whatever kind of a-frame you order, it comes ready to display.
