Heading in the Right Direction!

Directional Sign for Bobby's Bike Shop

The trick to getting you headed in the right direction to create your own pair directional sign inserts may actually seem a bit strange.

So you put together the design for your insert and you think I am going to be putting the sign right outside my store so both arrows should point to the left so everyone will see it and come in ….right?

Wrong! The secret to getting both arrows to point to in the same direction is to make the arrow on one insert point to the left and the arrow on the other insert point to the right. The reason for this is that the inserts on either sides of the sidewalk sign face opposite directions so if both arrows are printed pointing the same one side of the sign would be pointing people into your store and the other side would be sending them across the street. So to avoid sending mixed messages to your customers make sure both your arrows end up pointing them right to you.

Inserts for Open House

This pair of inserts was made for a Realtor that ordered a large sidewalk sign to attract people to the Open House she was having for a Model Condo.

The signs are perfect for applications just like this because they are light and easy to transport to any location. Creating instant advertising for people passing by in a car or on foot.

Inserts can be ordered for your A-Frame Sign.

Easy to change

This sandwich board sign increased attendance the first night it was usedThis unique line of Sandwich Board Signs also known as A-Frame signs or Sidewalk signs are easy to change!  They also support dozens of accessories providing the most versatile sign for selling on the market today.

A community Arts Council was frustrated with attendance, the town common was well traveled 18,000 cars drove by everyday while attendance had stagnated at the Monday night concerts.  The group had a concept for a hand built sign to publicize the event but the weight of the A-Frame sign was to heavy for some to get it off the common at the end of the night.

  • The lightweight sturdy nature of the On The Step A-Frame sign provided a great base for a set of interchangeable signs.
Attendance increased immediately according to organizers “The signs had instant impact, people told us they forgot that the event was on Monday.  We even had people that never knew we had concerts all summer.  I guess they normally just did not drive by the common on Monday nights.”

Music Tonight on one side, Music Monday on the other easy to change A-Frame Signs

With one side imprinted with “Music Monday” the other with “Music Tonight” along with a whimsical music note they were timely to.  Setting up the Sandwich Board sign on Wednesday with “Music Monday” inserted, then changing it to “Music Tonight” on Monday morning people noticed.  “The sign no longer blended into the background as it was always different”

Although not required the sign was removed Monday night after the concerts, and returned on Wednesday during the day.  This helped people to notice it as something different caught their eye.
