Have you ever walked down the sidewalk with your head delightfully in the clouds when you were jolted back to reality with a Dick Van Dyke-like trip over something in your path? Welcome to the power of sidewalk signs!
Have you ever played a little front-yard football only to have your buddy tell you to go deep into the yard of the empty house next door? 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.
Whiteboards or Blackboards – If you run a restaurant or bar with daily specials, you’ll want to update your A-frame sidewalk sign on a daily basis. Chalkboards and whiteboards are ideal for these purposes. We can hook you up with a variety of chalk and marker colors.
Turn Yards into Marketing Tools
Yard signs are used by businesses in an array of industries. You’re probably most familiar with the ones used to advertise houses for sale or rent. However, contractors also rely on yard signs to take credit for their work. Let’s say you’re a landscaper who’s proud of a particular job. You can typically get approval from the homeowner to temporarily display a yard sign with your name and contact information. This will let neighbors and everyone else know where they can go to get pristine landscaping work done.
Yard signs are great because you can get exaggeratingly millions of signs at a reasonable price. This allows you to blanket Vancouver with your message at a fraction of the cost of a TV ad. Plus, you’ll reach people where they least expect to be found! This why these markers are sometimes referred to as “bandit signs.”
