One of two types of advertisement, a sandwich board is made up of two boards that are put in the front and back of a person, making a human sandwich or a triangle hinged at the top with advertisements on it. These boards are usually displayed in a place that will capture the attention of those who pass to buy and a business owner who wants to draw more people to his store may be interested in knowing where he can purchase a set.
Print and copy store
A store owner who designs his own sandwich board can take his designs to a print and copy store. There, he can work with a graphic expert who can ensure that his sandwich board is what he needs and desires. Store owners should check the reputation and price range of a variety of stores before deciding on one. Look at work that has been produced at the shop and decide if it is the quality you want. Care should be taken to choose a sandwich board sign that will withstand inclement weather.
A variety of companies offers to help a store owner or business manager with sandwich board creation. These companies often require a faxed or emailed copy of what is desired before they give a final estimation. Those who consider this route should check the company's reputation and see if there are any complaints of fraud. Ask to see a catalogue of the company's work and if possible, get sample work sent to you. Financial information such as bank account numbers should not be given until you are sure that the company is legitimate.
Graphic designs departments at a local college or university
Junior and senior graphic design students are eager to add another project to their portfolios. Contact a local college or university to see if there are any students who would be willing to work on your sandwich board. An advantage to this is what you would save. Since the student is not fully qualified, they often do not charge as much as a professional. Choose a student who has a reputation for good work and honesty and create a contract that goes through the graphic designs department so that you are covered legally.
