Our sturdy, double-sided metal outdoor A-frame holds a 4 mil corrugated plastic sign on each side. The frame is constructed with rust proof powder coated 2cm steel tube. In addition, solid hinged braces and rubber feet keep the frame from collapsing. A rubber coated handle makes moving the frame easy. In a nutshell, these sandwich boards are stable and weather resistant, but not too heavy to move around.
The size you select when ordering is the overall sign size. The legs of frame add 4″ to the height of the sandwich board. To illustrate, the 24″ x 32″ sandwich board, when it is open and set up on the sidewalk, measures 36.25″ tall, 24.25″ wide, and the feet are 22.5″ apart at the base. In addition, that stand weighs 14 lbs. Because the sign slides into the frame, .25″ along the both side and bottom edges is not viewable.
We use only high quality, Roland Eco Solvent inks that are scratch resistant and look great for years outdoors. Still, it can be beneficial to cover them with a clear vinyl lamination. Think of it as insurance. Laminated signs withstand the weather and vandals better.
The Advantage of Metal Frame Sandwich Boards
In a word, the best quality of metal frame sandwich boards is flexibility. Changing your sign is easy and relatively inexpensive. The sign inserts slide easily in and out of the frame, so you can easily have your lunch special on one side of the insert and your dinner special on the other side. Instead of getting two sandwich boards, just turn the inserts around. We offer rigid and double sided signs to fit.
Get the Point?
Finally, a note to remind you about arrows. Sign inserts with arrows require 2 artwork files. In one the arrow will point to the left and in the other the arrow will point to the right. That way, both arrows will point in the same direction when the sign is on the sidewalk.
