How To Choose The Right Sidewalk Sign

Posted by Kristyn Jones on

More than ever stores are looking for new ways to bring customers in. One of the best marketing strategies that all businesses have is signage. This is especially true for the traditional brick and mortar stores. We all need more customers to come into our store, but how exactly do we get them in the door? Sidewalk signs are a great solution to this problem. There are several types of sidewalk signs to choose from, but don't worry. Here are some tips that will help you choose what frame is best for you.

Budget Friendly Frames

In current times, a lot of small business owners are looking for ways to boost sales without spending hundreds. For that store owner, we would recommend our Signicade Deluxe or our Spring Ready-4-Graphics frame.

Signicade Deluxe

The Signicade Deluxe is an industry staple. This option is popular because it's affordable and offers a traditional a-frame look. The deluxe unit comes with space for 24" x 36" graphics, which is sure to reach passersby. Another benefit of this system is that it's easy-to-use. Each unit comes with "stay tabs" that keep your panel in place. This eliminates the hassle of securing your graphic with tape or velcro. Each frame can be ballasted for extra stability.

The Springer Ready-4-Graphics frame is another great options for those on a tight budget. Each frame comes with a blank white 24" x 36" panels, which you can apply graphics to. Crafty individuals can even apply their own vinyl or DIY graphics! If that isn't you and you need a professional to make and apply your graphics, we can do that too. The black sign base can be filled for stability. This particular frame features strong metal springs, making it a great choice for windy areas.

Change Your Message Frequently

Some places want to change their message on a regular basis. Maybe you feature weekly sales or dinner specials. If that's you, one of our message board frames might be the best option.

One of our new, and favorite, items has to be the Portable Rolling Message Board sign. This option is great because the wheels make it easy to bring outside each day. The shape of the sign is also sleek and unique which will make your sign stand out among the rest. This option also features a 24" x 36" changeable message panel and deluxe message set.

You're In A High Traffic Area

Not all locations are created equal. If you are trying to reach cars passing by instead of pedestrians, I wouldn't necessarily recommend any of the above. Instead, you'll benefit from something larger that allows for more visibility.

Our Roadside QLA Sign is the same style as our last frame mentioned. It offers the sleek curved profile and wheels for easy portability. This frame is perfect for businesses looking to build their brand recognition with the public, because it allows you to insert your own branded panels to each side. The overall size of the panels is another huge bonus with this sign. This frame accepts 60" x 48" sign panels, making it perfect for catching the attention of car traffic.

Portable Roadside Message Board Signs

Our Portable Roadside Message Board signs will work for those looking to change their message frequently and reach busy car traffic. This frame is made from the same look as our last two frames feature. The panel for this frame is different though. This panel is offered in a straight look, not curved, which gives it a floating appearance. The frame is also easy to move each day thanks to the wheels at the base of the frame. This frame comes with our deluxe message set so that you can spell out just about any message you want!

The above options are great for those looking to get a new sidewalk sign for their business. When choosing, consider your location, traffic type, brand, and what you want to advertise with your sign.
