How to Make an A-Frame Sign
An A-frame board is essentially a double-sided poster frame than stands outside a shop or business to drive traffic inside. That means the only thing you’ll need to design is the poster!
First things first, you’ll need to choose one of the sizes we offer; they range from A2 poster frames all the way to A0 if you want a really large poster frame!
Then, make your poster design to the size you’ve chosen. Make sure you add 3mm bleed area to each side to account for the bleed area and remember than a very slight area (around 10mm on each side) around the edges of the poster won’t be visible when it’s attached to the frame – just keep your main message central!
We recommend going for big fonts that can be read from a distance if you’re placing this outdoor sign outside your place of business. That way passers by will be able to read it easily.
The same poster is used on both sides of the A-frame sign so you only need one design. If you want to switch up or change your posters, you don’t need to order another A-frame – just order another 220mic PVC poster to replace them.
What Are the Best Ways to Use A-Frame Signs?
An A-frame sign really makes a statement, but they work especially well in places where lots of people pass by – like busy roadsides and shopping streets. We print your graphics on a weatherproof stock and the stand itself is made from brushed aluminium, meaning they’re ideal for outdoor use to tempt customers in. They’re especially popular amongst restaurants and cafes, because it’s an eye-catching way to promote offers and specials.
A-frame poster holders aren’t just for pavements and street corners! They also make a big impact when used indoors to advertise sales and promotions.
How to Replace A-Frame Graphics
When you first order your A-frame, it’ll come with two poster graphics already pre-fitted so you can use it straight away. However, you can reorder PVC posters to replace the graphics whenever you want.
Our A-frame advertising boards have a snap frame, meaning you can refresh your graphics quickly and easily whenever you want. The corner parts of the frame will click out, allowing you to remove the current poster design and replace it with fresh print whenever you want.
