Reusable A-Frame signs are an excellent investment for restaurants, motels, and retail businesses.  These signs are often called signicades, sidewalk signs, or sandwich signs.  They are portable signs and can be easily set-up in the morning and brought in for the evening.  Some models even have wheels, making it very simple to move them around.  Made from durable plastic material, all of these signs support a front and back replaceable graphic panel.  Some higher end models have side panel signs, and some even have an eye-catching rider sign that sits on the top.

As restaurant signs, they earned the nickname of sandwich signs.  Often used to advertise the daily special, these signs became synonymous with the sandwich of the day.  This is an excellent example of where these signs perform.  A short term event, business special or sale is well promoted with an eye catching graphic along a busy walkway or street.


As retail signs, A-Frame signs perform very well advertising special events and sales.  Used as sidewalk signs, for example, passersby are caught by the colorful graphics and pulled inside by the promise of a short term special opportunity or bargain.  Shown above is a signicade Metropolitan, an upscale version appropriate for a jewelry store.  It has wheels, side sign panels and a catchy rider sign at the top.  When our client, Berning’s Fine Jewelry of Tempe, AZ held a special event, they turned to custom printed sign panels from Blue Chip Signworks to pull foot and vehicle traffic into the store. The Metropolitan model worked great.  The front and back panels could be designed and oriented for autos driving by, while the side panel signs were easily read by foot traffic through the mall area.

Signicade Deluxe

As hotel signs, motel signs and lodging signs they can be used to show vacancy status during peak periods.  Recent business changes like a grand opening, opening for the season, or holiday special are just some of the times a sign like this makes a lot of sense.  The above Signicade Deluxe model was prepared to announce the opening of  By the Brook Bed & Breakfast in Bourne, MA.  The sign was place where it could be read by heavy weekend traffic visiting Cape Cod.  As a simple way to promote the opening of the business, this type of sign works great.  Working with the expert graphic designers at Blue Chip Signworks, a photo of the historic B & B house was incorporated into the eye catching sign.
