What Are Pavement Signs?
Pavement or sidewalk signs are a cost effective way of getting your brand noticed at the point of sale or directing people.
What Are They Used For?
Pavement signs have the flexibility to get your marketing messages across in a number of different ways. You can choose the type depending on whether you need a message that you can change frequently or a permanent branded message. Types of media include:
- Paper and weatherproof posters
- PVC banner
- Permanent printed message
Types Of Pavement Signs
A Frame Pavement Signs
These have the advantage of being foldable so easy to store when not in use. Posters are held in place magnetically or by a snap shut poster frame. Alternatively they may have a chalkboard surface. Many of our customers choose to use PVC posters in a-boards for their weatherproof benefits.
Swinging Pavement Signs
A modern take on the pavement sign, which can have either a permanent printed message or pockets to display posters. They are more stable than A boards in windy conditions.
Forecourt Pavement Signs
These are bigger signs that are used in garage forecourts or outside shopping centres. The distinguishing feature is a larger, heavier base that can be water filled or a made from concrete. They have a variety of different ways of displaying either paper or PVC posters.
Flexi Pavement Signs
These are a great value option where you might experience windy conditions. The simple design has a solid moulded base and a flexible printed panel that bends in the wind.
What Pavement Sign Is Right For Me?
As with most things, you get what you pay for in terms of durability and features. A low cost pavement sign used in a sheltered location and taken in at night will be fine for promoting your business. For high traffic areas or exposed locations it is wise to spend a little more and get a more stable durable product.
Wind and weather.
Certain designs stand up to windy conditions better than others. In general for windy conditions look for a design with a weighted base and/or a panel that moves in the wind.
High traffic areas.
Make sure you have plenty of space available and you’re not obstructing pedestrians. Choose a size and style that is appropriate for your location.
Look and feel.
If you're running a shabby chic café you might opt for chalkboard design, where as a mobile phone shop might opt for a more modern flexi panel pavement sign.
Looking After Your Pavement Sign
Pavement signs are designed for outdoor use but yours will last longer if you can bring them indoors at night and always use common sense in windy conditions.
