Footpath Signs

Also known as A-frame signs, pavement signs or sandwich board signs, footpath signs are very effective on-street advertising. They can attract new customers or promote a special offer. In addition, footpath Signs are relatively inexpensive, durable and easily relocated.

This type of signage can also be fully customised and constructed to match your company image.

BENEFITS AND PLACEMENT

A-frame signage is the ideal tool to attract passing pedestrians into your store. They are placed perpendicular to the flow of traffic and are therefore often more visible than window signage or store fascia signs.

Pavement signs also work extremely well if your shop is situated slightly out of the way, in a remote part of a mall or down a side street or lane. And can direct passers-by from a busy street to your door.

This affordable mobile signage is used by a variety of industries including real estate, events, hospitality, coffee carts and food vans to name a few. We can even provide mini footpath signs made specifically for countertops and reception areas.

Footpath Sign Considerations

Design and Content

These signs are designed for maximum ‘impact’. They work best by having a short but powerful message to capture interest quickly. Use complementary, brand colours to make a sign pop and promote company identity.

Wind

In an area that experiences particularly strong winds, a footpath sign is not always a viable option. The wind has the potential to uplift even the most carefully designed and weighted footpath sign.

In especially windy locations, it may be unwise to have them at all. In this case please chat to our staff who will be able to advise on possible safer alternatives.

Regulations

Certain Councils, eg Wellington,  have legislation relating to pavement signage and a licence needs to be obtained before it is displayed. We always recommend checking council rules before making your order.

Fabricating Footpath Signage

Footpath Sign Unit

There are a number of different footpath signs available and they can be fabricated from wood, metal ACM or a mixture of all.  The majority we supply consist of a weighted polyethene base with a 4mm ACM graphic panel inserted into it.

Image Panel

The ACM panel can be double or single-sided. The image on the panel can be created using cut vinyl graphics, digitally printed vinyl or for extra protection, we can print directly to substrate and coat the panel with a 2-pack clear coating. This method means that any graphics can be used with no issues relating to peeling or delaminating.

Custom Options

We can use our computer-controlled profile cutting equipment to custom shape the advertising board, and ensure that your footpath sign sis unique.

In addition, we can incorporate whiteboard or blackboard inserts or even attach slide tracks to the surface of the sign to allow for the inclusion of interchangeable panels if desired.
