Pavement Signs

Pavement sign with weighted base Pavement signs or kerb signs exist in great variety. One variant is known as an A Board. Typically comprising two rectangular boards or panels, each joined to the other at one of the rectangles’ short edges by a hinge. The available movement of the hinge is usually constrained so that when the boards are moved apart around the hinged axis, the assembly assumes an A like form and is free-standing in repose.

Other designs of pavement signs are known. For example a free-standing design comprising a footed frame retaining within the frame a panel held in a hinge-like fashion on the uppermost of its short edges. The panel will move and so catch the eye in even slight breezes.Rotating style pavement sign

Also using the wind as a means to animate it, a known design employs an aerofoil-like cross-section in two opposed member elements with an air spill-way between the two. This construction causes the element to rotate in wind and so display to the observer a first surface and, upon rotation a second. Basic animation techniques in the print design applied to such sign create the illusion of movement in the sign’s subject matter.

Some pavement signs are safe to leave on the pavement in all weathers. Designs featuring two opposed sheet steel members “luff” in high winds and so spill the air that would otherwise move them or blow them over.

Pavement sign with a weighted basePavement signs can be conveniently deployed and folded and stored when not it use. The can be moved from one location to another and so are useful for mobile businesses, for example roadside cafes, to identify their whereabouts.

Pavement signs are typically “decorated” using digitally printed matter. This printing technology makes low volume viable and so keeps the costs of producing and supplying pavement signs affordable and cost effective in terms of the effect achieved.

Pull-Up Banners

Roller BannerPull Up Banners comprise a printed banner rolled upon itself and contained, under gentle spring pressure opposing the winding direction within a piece of portable and protective hardware. The rolled banner can be deployed by pulling it against the spring pressure and retaining it once extended with a strut abutting the banner edge and the hardware. The hardware serves as a foot and the pull up banner is thus free-standing when extended.

The materials used in free-standing pull up banners are usually of premium quality. This means that they are mechanically sound and so resist repeated winding, and have a highly developed surfaces so that they resolve high levels of detail to photo quality. The materials are also resistant to various modes of photo degradation such as fading, yellowing and cracking.

Pull up banners’ stands are very compact being only marginally wider than the banners they contains. It is reasonably light when loaded and usually has a handle making it easily portable. This design of display is not particularly stable in winds and so is best used for indoor applications, for example at exhibitions, experiential events and seminars.

Pull up banners can, if required, have the printed banner element replaced. This is a job for a person ideally skilled in handling print and such banner hardware. The life of the hardware unit is considerably greater than that of the printed graphics it contains and so is designed to be used with repeated content changes.

Many hardware designs are known with the primary differentiation being the aesthetic element. Various sizes are available with the largest widths only being limited by the practicalities of handling. Costs, while not in the same spectrum as unsupported banners are very reasonable and because of this, roll up banners are pressed to many purposes including the construction of basic exhibition stands.
