Even if you are not familiar with the term “A-frame sign”, you know what it is. You have seen them all over San Diego, mostly on sidewalks outside of restaurants, bars, and retail stores. A-frame signs often list daily specials or witticisms meant to entice people to come inside businesses. A-frame signs have two sign panels to display and are called such because, when viewed from the side, the edges of the sign panels, along with the horizontal crossbar, cause them to look like a capital “A”. They are also sometimes called “sandwich boards”.
A-frame signs are popular for a number of reasons, but perhaps there are two major ones. First, real estate is at a premium on the streets of places like Carlsbad and it can be hard to put up a sign big enough on your storefront that can really get you noticed. A-frame signs stick out and create more impressions with pedestrians and motorists. A-frame signs are also popular because they are often changeable. You can have a chalkboard or whiteboard installed on one or both of the panels and this allows you to change the message for your restaurant’s new daily special or your store’s new sale. These types of A-frame signs look best when they are branded with your business’s name and/or logo at the top or bottom of the sign. If it’s just a chalkboard, that will look unprofessional.
