Soup and Sandwich Boards: A Winning Combination

By | A-Frame Signs

Big city restaurants and small-town diners are often the best places to get a bite to eat when you’re hungry and tired. Travelers come from far and wide, stumbling from feeling famished and thirsty. They happen upon a sandwich board sign for a beloved eatery. Relieved, they step inside and get the meal of their dreams. All right, so maybe that is a little dramatic. But sandwich boards really can help your restaurant advertise specials, new deals and more. Hungry for some more knowledge about these handy exterior signs? Read on to learn more. The Anatomy of the Sign Sandwich boards are traditionally made of wood, with a black chalkboard panel on both sides. However, these days, you can get one made out of plastic or even lightweight metal. Your panel can have a section to place in letters, or it can just be the chalkboard or even whiteboard. Usually, these signs are double-sided, so that passerby from both directions can read what it says. Sometimes they only have one side, though. This works best when the sign is up against a wall for whatever reason. We recommend the double-sided sandwich board, as it is more effective at getting customers to come in. Advertise Your Daily Specials How can a restaurant benefit from a sandwich board sign? Well, let’s say you’re an Italian restaurant with a delicious freshly-made pasta dish that your chef just thought up. You could write something witty on your sign, or simply just write down the name of your masterpiece plus the price. Informative and delectable! The Future of Sandwich Boards These days, you have probably seen the single-post sandwich board signs around. These are usually made of a sturdy plastic with a water-filled base for stability. These signs are potentially what all sandwich boards will…

Do You Have These Retail Store Signs in Portland?

By | A-Frame Signs, Banners, Point of Purchase Signs, Sidewalk Signs

There are stores and restaurants in Portland that don’t have any identifying markings. They instead rely on word-of-mouth and online publicity. And, even then, they need to have extraordinary products and services to keep people coming back. This might work if you’re trying to market to hipsters, but these enterprises are the exception rather than the rule because they’re essentially missing out on attracting foot traffic and building their brand in favor of creating a mystique that generally fades in time. On the other hand, you stand out in a crowded marketplace when you put retail store signs in Portland, Oregon to work for you. Fortunately, Specialty Graphic Solutions has markers that will attract your target audience, even if it’s hipsters. A-Frame Sidewalk Signs A-frame sidewalk signs are the land mines in retail war. They’re what you’re trying to get consumers to run into and take notice of. We recommend putting these in any areas that get a lot of foot traffic. These signs are ideal for displaying your store’s name, logo, and colors to boost your brand awareness. You can also use them to list your products and services. Bars and restaurants use these signs to promote their daily specials. Swooper Flags Swooper flags are great for catching the eye and bringing attention to your storefront. The wind from passing cars or the many Pacific Northwest storms keep your message flapping. And, the flags can be quite tall, so they’re visible from great distances. Swooper flags are the perfect way to promote annual sales events. And, we can provide you with a number of different fabric flags to install on the tip-proof post. For instance, when it is near the holiday season, one of our clients likes to use a flag to promote their gift wrapping services. Exterior Hanging…

You may have run into a “For Sale” yard sign in this instance. Both sidewalk signs and yard signs in Vancouver, WA are valued for their ability to forcefully enter the consciousness of those who pass by. Today, we’re going to examine these markers a little more closely and see how they might be used to promote your business. Walk the Walk with Sidewalk Signs The most popular type of sidewalk sign is the A-frame. It gets its name because it resembles the letter A when you look at it from the side. Both the front and back of the marker can feature you unique message. There are a few different types of A-frame signs: Classic Permanent Sign – These markers feature your information rendered on a vinyl adhesive film on each face of the A-frame. We recommend using these signs if you have a message you need to get across that won’t change anytime soon. For example, you might use permanent A-frame signs to point the way to overflow parking or to simply let people know you’re currently open. Sign Inserts – Other A-frames take inserts. We can print these out and make them all professional looking for you. Or, you may want to print your own on your office printer. This option is best if you have seasonal sales you want to promote.
