Cheap Sidewalk Sign

March 28th, 2014

Easily the least expensive sign frame in our catalog, this two-piece a-frame sign is a welcome choice for those looking for a cheap, temporary, or the proverbial "use once and throw away" application. The sides fold open like standard A-frames and the material is white styrene. Attach your own signage or draw right on the surface to communicate your intentions. But let us reiterate; this sign is not a wipe on/wipe off sign. Draw with a marker and it's not coming off! However in the grand scheme of things, portable signage has its place and it should be affordable enough. Absolutely.

Fillable-Base Sign

March 14th, 2014

We sell a number of signs with fillable bases which are great choices for windy locations. Most of these sign frames feature a wide base constructed from molded plastic with the sign frame rising up from the center. One particular model sports an a-frame look with futuristic styling. It may not look like it but the plastic frame located on both sides of the sign is hollow and therefore fillable. Wheels are standard on models such as these, because the added weight of sand or water would make them too heavy to pick up normally.

Rugged Plastic Outdoor Signage

February 28th, 2014

A little street advertising can go a long way. Take a look at this Polyethylene A-Frame Sign evidenced in the image at right. It's advertising for the store next to it, but if you were a motorist you might not have paid attention were it not for that sidewalk sign. You see, these portable signs extend the marketing reach of your business. Your company name, logo, or slogan is now that much closer to the curb, where people walking or driving can see it often way before they can see your place of business. These are made from super-tough polyethylene too, a good choice for curb side!

Black Markerboards

February 14th, 2014

Outdoor sign advertising doesn't have to be difficult. One of the easiest ways to attract attention is with a black chalkboard. Unlike sign frames that display printed posters, with these types all you need is a stick of chalk and some imagination (or at least some writing ability). These pavement signs are always double-sided so you can point your messages in both directions. These sign tools advertise food specials, menus, new additions, and other sales promotions with old-fashioned style. Check out the our large selection of black markerboards and chalkboards with solid wood frames in a number of fine stained finishes.

Sidewalk Letter Boards

January 31st, 2014

Next time you're out and about reading the specials on Cafe Letterboards, take a look at the actual sidewalk. Older cities had what they called vaulted sidewalks, evidenced by the glass you sometimes see embedded in the concrete. These little glass prisms are designed to send outside light underneath the sidewalk to help illuminate the basement (before electric lighting was used). Yes, older building footprints often extended beyond the face of the structure. Vault lights are an extinct animal as they are no longer used, and many preservationists have called for their restoration as they provide historical and architectural interest to the concrete jungle.

Real Estate Sign Frame

January 17th, 2014

These Steel Sign Stakes are standards of the industry. The Real Estate Industry, that is. The reason for this is two-fold. First, property agents need a way to get their message out fast and clear since the majority of properties are discovered while driving. By sticking the sign frame into the ground, the agents are able to strategically position the sign for optimum exposure. Second, real estate agents need to communicate what the available property is, and include an easily readable phone number. But real estate companies aren't the only ones to take advantage of these outdoor signs. Building contractors and lawn service providers are just a few of the business that like to advertise their services while working on a property.

Popup Sideline Signs

December 31st, 2013

Sponsors like to do a little of their own advertising when they back an outdoor event or sports game. And when they do they choose soft fabric sideline banners. There are a couple of reasons behind this. First, the signs are printed onto mesh fabric which is stretched on a thin fiberglass frame. This lightweight assembly can be folded and transported in its own bag. Stakes secure the sign to the ground. Second, the fabric banners have no sharp corners and collapse on impact, an important consideration when displaying them along sports field sidelines. Portable signs are an uncommon, but beneficial way to advertise your corporate business!

Polyethylene Pavement Signs

December 13th, 2013

Rugged Polyethylene Signs defy the elements with their corrosion-proof makeup. No wood frame to decay or steel body to rust here! These types of pavement signs take a licking and keep on standing, no matter how much abuse is handed to them. They make excellent choices for construction sites and parking garages, in addition to your average sidewalk. The company stocks standard sandwich board styles (A-Frame), along with vertical signs that feature fillable bases. These frames display posters but can also accept pre-printed boards that slide into the sides of the frame. Marker boards are available too and there's even the pylon-shaped totem (shown at right). Lots of signs for sidewalks using this indestructable material are stocked for same day shipment.

Aluminum Sidewalk Sign

November 29th, 2013

Not all Poster Signs are created equal. Many proprietors simply leave their signage outside too long until the inevitable happens. We take pride in applying heavily-coated and protected materials in which to brave the elements. While the sign at right is predominantly manufactured from aluminum, the base section and feet are painted steel. Without this protective layer, the sign would perish and die a quick death...or at least stop looking very nice. Once outdoor signage starts looking dingy and run-down, it directly reflects on your business. And if your business is busy during tourist season, you need to stay on top of that!

Rolling Letter Board Sign

November 15th, 2013

Not one for handwritten messages on a marker board? Letter Boards are versatile sign displays that can be used by every one. You get five to six rows of lettering area to help promote your business. The individual letters speak loud and clear and can be read from a great distance. In addition to standard sandwich board styles that fold flat for transporting, these signs are also available with fillable bases. What's more, these bases feature wheels and convenient carrying handles as part of the molded plastic base. So when the base is heavy (once filled with sand or water), moving the sign is very easy!

A-Frame Sign Markerboard

October 31st, 2013

Sidewalk Marker Boards bring out the artist in all of us. That may be a bold claim but in the hands of someone capable, a blank slate can transform into a work of art that just happens to advertise for your business! All of these writable signs come in the familiar A-Frame style with two sides that fold flat for storage. Most feature a black engineered chalk surface with shatter-resistant properties, which is a good thing because traditional slate would not hold up in outdoor extremes. Wet erase markers are the writing tools of choice. These provide vibrant colors that jump off the black surface, perfect for advertising your cafe or retail shop! (We sell them too!)

Poster Sign with Water Base

October 15th, 2013

Poster Signs with fillable bases provide easy mobility for an outdoor display. They are best used in locations susceptible to offshore winds or breezy alleys. Of course these can be displayed filled with sand or water or unfilled, depending on your preference or outdoor conditions. Like a-frames and sandwich boards, these fillable base signs help to extend the reach of your establishment by presenting promotional posters or adverts out on the sidewalk. Oftentimes passersby will notice these displays before they'll notice your place of business!
