As suggested by the name, A Board is manufactured in such a way that they take the shape of the Alphabet "A". A Board is being used since many years. Earlier A Board was made of wood which used to be heavy. The message or signs on those wooden A Boards were either imposed on it using some sharp tool, or they were written with oil paints. Whenever they wanted to change the message or signs, they used to wash it away. They are being used by all kinds of businesses and households in large numbers these days. Here is why they are so successful-
They are best to put up any message, sign or pictures because of the convenience and durability they provide
Scientifically, the shape "A" gives the board extra power to support the sign board. That is why it becomes little difficult to get damaged because of small accidents. As the two different faces of A Boards are connected from the middle, they absorb the external shock easily. This makes it strong enough to be used for years.
The PCBs of yesterday were mostly rigid. In this modern era of mobile technology where everybody is inching toward miniaturization, aneed was felt for boards that were lightweight, flexible, thin, small and had high wiring density. Flexible printed circuit boards were invented to answer these requirements. These are printed boards that can be three-dimensionally wired and can be reshaped to fit available space.
A flexible PCB is made up of a flexible board, wirings provided on the flexible board and connection pads to be conductive through wirings, which are provided on the edge of the flexible board. A copper foil is laminated to a resin substrate the layers and joined with adhesive or with the application of heat and pressure into an integral board. There can be more than one conductive layer for making circuitry on both sides. There are insulating layers, adhesive layers and encapsulating layers between the conductive layers to ensure sufficient insulation. The plastic substrate of flexible printed circuit boards is formed of polyimide or similar thermoplastic material, such as polyetherimide.
They are available in a variety of sizes and have not only animations, but also sales messages and some can even display the time and temperature. They are flashy and demand attention!
Animated signs are usually available in full color and monochrome. Full color is just that - many colors of LED lights combine to make incredibly life-like pictures and text. Monochrome signs are single color and are best suited for signs with very basic text and pictures.
Using these signs outside your business has many benefits. The most obvious is that you are going to draw the attention of a lot of eyes towards your business. Beyond that, they are great way to let people know about the products and services you offer that they may not be aware of. If you are having a sale or are offering a special deal, an animated LED signs is a great way to promote it.
Having fun with your sign is another way to get it recognized. Full screen animated LED signs offer you a lot of room to be creative. Giving people basic information such as time and temperature is great. You can also use motivational or funny quotes. Although t5his type of information is not really sale-related, it can help you make people remember your business.
Today, there are different ways to display the product so that the customers are attracted to it and make their purchase. Of these different ways, acrylic is fast becoming the material of choice for use in the display industry. Although it looks like glass it couldn't be more different. Designers are opting for acrylic over glass due to it being light wight, versatile and relatively inexpensive.
Acrylic is available in a huge range of different colors, thicknesses and strengths. It is often used as an alternative to glass shelving as it is lighter and much easier to ship. Glass is a very fragile material and can crack and break with minimal pressure. Acrylic however is tough; is takes considerable force to break it which is what makes it an ideal choice for shelving.
Acrylic can also be manipulated by using heating to create bends and shapes. Pocket displays that are often seen in Estate Agents and Restaurants windows are usually made of acrylic. The pockets are simply a piece of acrylic bent round using applied heat to form a 'U' shape into which the graphic fits.
Designing a hoarding is a little different from designing a brochure or an advertisement. There are various reasons fo this. First, a hoarding is read from far as compared to a brochure or an advertisement which is just a few inches away from your eyes. Second, you get more time to read a brochure or an advertisement but you may get a few seconds to read a hoarding. When you see a hoarding while driving, you may have the time to just glance at the hoarding. Third, hoardings are only support/reminder advertising mediums. That is, you use this media to remind your target audience that you exist. While driving you do not expect the customer to stop on the road or the highway to read what is written on a hoarding. These three factors have to taken into account while designing a hoarding. Keep your message simple or the advertising idea for a hoarding should be as simple as possible. Actually, if you want to test how well your advertising idea is, try and see if it works on a hoarding. If the idea can be used effectively on a hoarding, you can sleep in peace, assured that you have a good idea for your advertising campaign. In fact, I recently had an experience which proves this. We were supposed to design a small 10CC classified display advertisement for a client and whatever designs we made did not appeal to us.
