Many businesses need a way to advertise and share information outdoors but want something that is portable, low-cost, long-lasting, up-to-date, and useful where traditional signs are difficult to use. Metal A-frame signs fit this bill perfectly!
A-frame signs (also known as sandwich boards and A-boards) are a great, cost-effective method for instant advertising outside your business where traditional signage can be difficult to arrange.
Metal A-frame signs are made to last and can withstand harsh weather conditions. And at Not Just A Copy Shop, we can help you create a professional and appealing Metal A-Frame that will attract potential clients on the sidewalk and street. What better way to get your message across to your customers and those passing by than with a custom outdoor signage from Not Just a Copy Shop?
A Metal A Frame sandwich board consists of a metal stand and 2 separate corflute inserts. This gives you the added flexibility of changing the advertising message periodically, without replacing the entire frame. Once you are ready for a new promotion, simply pull out the existing boards and slip in the new ones. This is a cost effective solution to always keep your message fresh and new. Our A-Frame inserts are extremely weather resistant as well.
Advantages of Metal A-Frame Signs
Here are 4 great reasons to incorporate Metal A-frames into your local marketing strategy:
- Cost Efficiency
Metal A-frame signs have a higher initial cost than printing a run of posters but they will last for years and can be reused again and again.
All of the Metal A-frame signs boards that we offer are made from high-grade materials that hold up in harsh weather conditions.
Another benefit to having a portable sign is that it can be stored away after business hours to prevent vandalism or theft.
- Increased local awareness
If your location is hidden behind other businesses or hidden by obstacles like trees, Metal A-frames can help you achieve visibility. Simply placing your Metal A-frame on the roadside is an economical and practical alternative to renting space on a stationary sign or billboard.
Tips for Designing your Metal A-frame Sign
Tip 1: Let customers see your products
This classic business saying is so important: “customers can’t buy what they can’t see”. So if your business or storefront is hidden from view, your customers can’t find you. Remedy this with an eye-catching, can’t-be-missed advertisement: a Metal A-frame.
Tip 2: Bring customers to you
A frame signs are a great way to direct potential customers to your store, booth or display. Place one strategically around the corner from your business and direct foot traffic your way – ensuring customers can easily find and recognize your business.
Tip 3: Take advantage of walking/driving space
Don’t wait for customers to enter your store to get your sales pitch started. Pique their interest even earlier with sidewalk advertising. Generate more sales without any extra work by using Metal A-frames to promote new products, advertise seasonal sales, or highlight a daily special.
Tip 4: Increase readership and expand message
People notice new and different things. So change up the message on your Metal A-frame every few days to promote a new product or advertise seasonal specials. You’ll boost your readership, and ensure potential customers notice your business. Because the messages are swappable, you are in charge of what your signs say, and how often the content changes.
Tip 6: Location, location, location
Metal A-frame signs make great advertisements because they’re lightweight, portable, and durable. Take advantage of your sign’s mobility and strategically position it so that it attracts the greatest attention from foot traffic or commuters.
Tip 7: Keep it simple & use graphics
In the digital age attention spans are even shorter, and commuters can only read so much before they pass your sign. Remember, a creative graphic or image of your product is worth more than a jumble of words. Keep your message short and your pictures big!
