A-frames come in many shapes and sizes and can serve as a solution for many signage needs. Great for both indoor and outdoor use, common applications for a-frame signs include: wayfinding signs, sponsor signage, event signage, and promotional signage.
Plastic a-frames, commonly known as sandwich boards, are constructed of a durable plastic and fold flat for storage when not in use. Sandwich boards are used in conjunction with prints that are easy to change in and out as needed. Sandwich boards are a great and easy to move solution for any promotion or event.
Sideline a-frames are commonly found on the sidelines of football, soccer, lacrosse, or field hockey fields. We have two standard options for sideline a-frames: padded a-frames and non-padded a-frames.
Softline A-Frames™, our signature padded a-frames, keep your athletes safe while showcasing your sponsors or team branding right next to the action. These padded a-frames are great for courtside or field side placement and are available in 3’x 8’ size. Softline A-Frames™ feature vinyl banners with a quick-change Velcro® system which allows for easy and affordable season or game-to-game graphic changes. They also fold up to store flat.
Coroplast A-Frames, our non-padded a-frames, can be customized to almost any size and are constructed to ship and store flat to maximize space. Coroplast a-frames can have graphics printed directly to the coroplast material for long-term use or can be outfitted with a quick-change Velcro® system for easy and affordable season or game-to-game graphic changes.
Yes! The most commonly used hardware for sandwich boards holds a 36” high x 24” wide print on each side. There are also options that hold 24” high x 12” wide prints on each side or 24” high x 24” wide prints on each side.
The actual hardware for sandwich boards is most commonly white, but other colors are available.
If properly weighted and secured, a-frame signs will hold up in a reasonable amount of wind. A-frames can be weighted with sandbags and our padded a-frames have loops sewn in the corners to allow for the a-frame sign to be staked into the ground.
As with anything, please use your best judgment and if it seems too windy for the a-frames, even when weighted and secured, bring them inside!
Yes! A-frames are a great signage solution if you need to have graphics that are easy to change out. Sideline a-frames usually use vinyl banners with Velcro® for easy change graphics while sandwich boards typically use Velcro® in conjunction with a more rigid material like coroplast or styrene.
