We chose some of the questions from sandwich board buyers and collated them for you.

Why do I need an A-Frame?

What size is a sandwich board?

We offer a range of standard sizes for your "sidewalk" signs. Everything from the min 600x600 A-Frame to the giant 1,200x1800mm A-Frame.

It all comes down to what you need to display and what room you have to place your sign. Feel free to tell us your size requirements for your A-Frame signs.

Can I use a sandwich board when it is windy?

A-frames are designed for the outdoors but they can act as a big sail in heavy wind and extreme weather conditions. It is always recommended to secure your A-Frame signs if strong winds are predicted and also to stop anyone from stealing them too. You can tie them to a pole or use some heavy weights to secure them in place. Even better, if it fits your budget, we suggest investing a little more in your A-Frame and getting our heavy-duty outdoor A-Frame which comes with a solid base and super strong wheels that can be filled with sand or water to create additional weight without compromising on style.

Why is it called a sandwich board? Why is it called an A-Frame?

The sandwich board was a popular form of advertising in the 19th century when merchants carried the two placards on their shoulders and travelled up and down the street to promote their goods and services. Charles Dickens was the first person to refer to the carriers as "sandwich men" and from there, they became sandwich boards. Over time, the world changed and business owners stopped paying for sandwich men. Hence, the A-frame was constructed to keep the sandwich boards in place. A-frame signs get their name as they look like an A when viewed from the side. The A-Frame Signs are still widely used today.
