4 Advantages of a Sidewalk Sign

Sidewalk signs have a lot of benefits for small business. For instance, placing a sign on the sidewalk, when you want to advertise your services or goods, can attract people who make purchases impulsively. This effective yet simple sign brings in big rewards!

Let’s look at four other advantages of sidewalk signs:

#1: Attract Attention

When you are placing a sign on the sidewalk, you are likely to increase your profits and your sales. You can use it for telling people what they’re going to find inside your store. Make that first impression good by keeping messages short and straightforward. It’s also a good idea to leave blank space all around your text. When you add a border, it will make it easier and faster to read.

#2: Multiple Designs

If your sidewalk sign is changeable, you can change the sign’s message and test the signs impact. If you can’t use this type of sign, there are always poster frames and marker boards. Whether you’re telling potential customers about a sign or you’re offering a great deal, a sign on the sidewalk will let you alter the message as needed. There are also a lot of signs that let you put messages on both sides.

#3: Convenience / Portability

Signs that you put on the sidewalk are made from waterproof, durable materials that will hold up even in bad weather. Signs that are made of fade-resistant, high grade plastics often last for many years. Some of the models even let you add water or sand to their base so it will withstand wind.

  • Sidewalk signs don’t require much maintenance

  • Design an easily readable message. Think about the size of letters, the spacing, and the colors.
  • Properly using contrast, white space, and color will let people read the sign much faster.
  • Use colors that contrast instead of colors that are similar


These are just some of the advantages of using a sign on the sidewalk. If you’re looking for a cost effective way to advertise your business, you won’t find a better option.
