These Signs Are The Perfect Companion For Restaurants and Retail

A-frames, sandwich boards, or sidewalk signs, are portable and effective means of displaying information.
A-frames are most commonly made of 2 pieces of hinged plywood or MDF and a handle for carrying. Sign faces can be graphical only, or chalkboard/dry erase for frequently changed information.  Most commonly printed on 2 sides but can be printed on all four sides for more flexibility in communicating different messages.
Our customers have had amazing results with their street sign sandwich boards.  Many of our Calgary clients are using these sandwich boards in front of there places of businesses such as restaurants and coffee shops to grab the attention of passbyers.
Sandwich boards are effective for this reason because they are right in of a person walking on the sidewalk as they approach your business. 
Then the sidewalk/sandwich board signs are unavoidably right in front of your potential customer, while this person is right in front of your place of business.
It's great to see our signs peppered along 17th Ave Calgary to make our city much more welcoming.
To note; 24" x 32" inch sandwich boards are the most common size.
They are pretty large without being too hard to move around and can easily be brought in and out of a store daily without being a burden.
Our 19' x 24" are easy to put in any vehicle and are popular with real estate agents.
One thing to consider is the kind of graphics to be utilized.  Vinyl cut is often the cheapest, we use our stock color of vinyl and cut out of it any text or shapes/images designed into the proof.  usually 1-3 colors are used.  When more colors, complex graphics, or photos are used, it is usually best we print.  With printing, there is no limitation to color or graphics.

For additional protection and longevity, we may laminate the printed graphics.
This will protect the image from UV damage, fading from the sun, and abrasions.  Perhaps the sandwich board is stored in the back of a pickup bouncing around with other tools and such.  Lamination is a clear layer of vinyl that is applied over the top of the printed graphics.  For most applications, lamination is not required, as the printed graphics themselves seem to be sufficient and durable for use.
We see landscapers, construction folks, and real estate professionals use our A-frames / sandwich boards in front of homes.  Our sandwich boards communicate the scope of a project being done or promote your goods or services being used at a location.  With our high-quality designs and printing, our sandwich boards / A-Frames are impressive and eye-catching.  Lawn signs can be a good option for this as well.
Graphical inserts for interchangeable display systems such as Signicades are most commonly made of cut or printed vinyl applied to corrugated plastic. The frames come in a variety of sizes and are constructed from plywood, plastic, or metal.  Signacades are specifically a very durable polycarbonate, sandwich board A-Frame that allows inserts to be quickly changed.  Signacade sandwich boards are easy to use and fairly light for their sizes.  Available in several different sizes.
