You have the store sign, which is usually hanging outside of the store. Then you have the billboards, which are bigger and are held high with metal support.

What do you call the store ads that are standing? Usually, outside of a store?

  • @RonJohn I was thinking of that, but then found out I didn't know what to type on Google. – alex Feb 21 '18 at 1:48
  • pictures of the front of an (urban?) restaurant might have them. You could highlight the sign(s) you mean. – RonJohn Feb 21 '18 at 8:34

Sandwich Boards are generally worn by people standing or walking around outside stores (referring to the person wearing them as the filling in a sandwich), although the name can refer to floor standing signs normally called A-Boards. Other signage which stands on the ground can either be Swing Boards or Forecourt Signs. All types of floor standing sign can generically be called forecourt signs or pavement signs.

All these signs can have changeable graphics or permanent graphics.


I believe you are talking about a Sandwich Board
