What’s the best way to direct guests to come inside and take a look at the products and services your business has to offer? For the casual pedestrian minding their own business, it’s right at their feet — on the sidewalk leading up to, or in front of, your business, restaurant, or street festival booth. Sidewalk and street graphics come in many forms, some of the most popular forms of sidewalk and street graphic signage are A-frames and decals, both of the floor and wall variety. SpeedPro has the know-how and technical skills needed to create compelling sidewalk and street graphics custom designed to your specifications and are sure to bring in street traffic.
Often referred to as either sidewalk or sandwich signs, A-frame signs are among the most portable forms of signage. Simply put, they are called A-Frames because when seen from a side view they look like the letter “A.” A-Frames often have custom messages printed on both sides. They are two-sided outdoor displays that are easy to fold out and place wherever and whenever needed. Sidewalk signs are a great option for maximizing business exposure when there is a lot of foot traffic walking past.
A-frames are popular outside restaurants and stores to display, menus, specials and options. A-frames are primed for pedestrians because they are mostly low to the ground and smaller forms of advertising. Perfect for maximizing curbside appeal for people who want fast food on the go. Advertising take-out options using an A-frame will grab busy customers who are trying to get something done and don’t have time to wait. A-frames have a small footprint, which is perfect for busy sidewalks because the signs won’t interrupt travelers. With SpeedPro printed graphics, create an A-frame that is eye-catching and reflective of your brand values. A-frame signs excel at highlighting deals and other promotional information for both retailers and restaurants. A-frame sandwich boards are considered classic marketing material for restaurants and bars who often use them to showcase chef’s specials, promote happy hours, and recommend the soup and sandwich du jours. Customizable to different sizes and shapes retail, sidewalk signs can be used on crowded streets or in wide-open shopping plazas. Construction options include various materials, such as fabric, wood, metal and plastic. When you choose the highest quality type and construction for sidewalk signs, understand that they will be reusable for years. A-Frames are portable, attention-grabbing, cost-effective and most of all flexible advertising for your brand.
Bigger is better, and the most effective signs are always the ones that people see. From wall-to-wall custom murals to awning-installed backlit graphics or towering-pole-mounted street-side signs, businesses want graphics that turn heads and catch eyes. To work towards this goal, consider installing signs above eye level. This will ensure a large sign radius for walking or driving customers to view on the street. Always strive to avoid visual obstacles such as nearby buildings, trees and parked vehicles. Be creative with embellishments like branded color schemes, bright LED backlighting, digital components and high background-to-text contrast to make sidewalk and street graphics even bolder, bigger and better.

When deciding where to place street and sidewalk graphics, first determine the perfect location for your street and sidewalk graphics by asking yourself, “which streets near my building receive the heaviest foot traffic? When do people walk past the front entrance most? Are there adjacent streets that receive more foot traffic than bordering streets do? What parts of my city or town does my target audience most often frequent? And what high visibility locations near highways and major roads do I have access to?”
