"A board" questions

does anyone have any good suppliers for "A" boards?
swing or rigid?

is there a standard price to sell a vinyl lettered board at?
or even an average price?

how do you price them up?

Cherwells do quite a reasonable range. 01280 840297

I don't know how they compare price-wise with other suppliers.
I always make my own A-boards and price them as I would any other sign.

Hi Sally

I use DES, they're very helpful. Tel 01663 744824.

I just add a mark up on to the bought in cost and price the signwriting up just like any other job.

cherwells are nice with the ft cover so you can letter the standard message
and do posters that slip in for special offers

2 bits or more of the cherry
tell the customer a quality a board is X £ then ad the sign work cos they all seam to think a Abord is £25 think again mr consumer

Giraffe do the best range, but on the pricey side, but you get for what you pay for. Or a company called A-Display where I get most of my pavement signs and there well made as well. dont like these cheap pavement signs when they use plastic clips that break in the end, all the swing signs I get have stainless steel brackets for the sign panel to swing on. I see other companies signs fall apart cuz of plastic fittings
