How to Use Custom A-Frame Signs

Open Hour Icon12-20-2019

Custom A-Frame signs (which are sometimes referred to as “sandwich boards”) can be an important piece of the marketing puzzle when you are running your company. Understanding when to apply A-frames properly is going to change the way you approach all of your marketing needs. A-Frame Signs are useful because they offer up a form of versatility that most other signs refuse to deliver, and they’re called a “sandwich board” because most restaurants will make use of them. The signs themselves make the shape of an “A”, and you’ve probably seen a few of them around town already.


Using A-Frame Signs is a great way to introduce new products and services into the mix, or simply promote the fantastic items that you’ve already have going for your company Most food-based businesses will have a sandwich board outside of their establishment since it’s so easy to publish daily deals and other useful pieces of information on there.

How Else Can I Use Custom A-frame Signs?

Customized signs are always going to have a personal appeal to them, which is much better than purchasing a generic sign and making use of it. You’ll notice that there are plenty of restaurants that have chalkboard A-frame signs outside of them, or maybe even inside – the daily specials can be erased and replaced the very next day if applicable. Restaurants have noticed that people walking by will read the sign and if they are interested in the dish at hand, they might come inside and check things out.


Every single sign that you make use of needs to offer up your company in a positive light. Signs are an opportunity to create new customers, and making use of a less attractive option is only going to hurt your plans.

Are They Affordable?

Custom A-Frame Signs are one of the most affordable options that you’re going to come across, as they can handle just about anything you’d like. Some signs are going to be very specific and only offer up one level of advertisement, whereas the A-Frame Sign is typically versatile and can be placed just about anywhere.


Use your imagination and apply the signs however you’d like! The most joyous part about using A-Frame signs would be the fact that if it isn’t working in one area, you can just move it around and test out the different results. Regardless of who you are or what your company happens to specialize in, you should know that custom A-Frame Signs are going to give you a flexible marketing platform for all of your marketing needs.


If you’re entirely new to the marketing game, never fear! There is an abundance of different signs to consider making use of, but custom A-Frame signs have to be one of the easiest kinds to implement. There are many different types available to be customized towards your needs, and they are also incredibly affordable – it’s a win-win situation.

I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

  • 5 star review  We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

  • 5 star review  Wonderful experience! Price was competitive, customer service and quality of work was better than expected. I had to replace a store front sign just and these folks went out of there way to make sure they understood what I wanted and exceeded expectations at every point of the process.

  • 5 star review  Michelle and her team work very quickly. When I placed my order with Houston Graphic Signs, I was on a tight deadline. Not only were they Friendly and Helpful but they were also Fast and Professional. The vinyl stickers I ordered look AMAZING and are made with quality materials to hold up to wear and tear! Thank you HGS for a job VERY well done!

  • 5 star review  Used Houston Graphic Signs to wrap one of the trucks in our fleet. We've had a vendor we've used for years that we were satisfied with, but HGS is in our office complex, and we figured we'd give them a shot. The whole process from their quote, to completing the work, to invoicing was seamless and easy. The wrap went on great with no issues, and the price was a significant reduction from what I was used to paying. Great process all around, and I plan on using these guys for all of my graphics needs.
