How do I maximize the benefits of the changable panel feature?

Part of the value in this type of signage lies in the fact that you do not have to decide on that at the time you purchase your first sign. As your inventory, market or emotions change, you then create a new message.

Can my sign shop do different kinds of graphic designs on my SignSpin Sign panels?

Yes, your SignSpin Sign panel comes flat. It can be vinyl lettered, screen printed or digitally printed with full color photography.


How easy is it to change panels on my SignSpin Sign for new specials and promotions?

Very Easy. You can change your 4ft or 2ft panel in less than a minute. This allows you to purchase differently designed panels for all your promotions at a very economical cost.

How do I ensure that my SignSpin Sign is both assembled correctly and working properly?

Easy assembly instructions come with each sign. Follow those instructions and you can be sure that your sign will be assembled correctively and will spin maintenance free.

Ensure you have located your sign where the wind flow is not being blocked and don't place any obstacle in the winds path. Remember wind currents do change. It is very easy to maneuver the sign to adapt to changing conditions.

What is the difference between SignSpin and other outdoor signs like a-frames, banners and posters?

SignSpin Signs have motion! Motion it is proven to attract the eye faster. Their purpose is to get attention first and fast. In addition, SignSpin Signs are dynamic, messages can be changed in less than a minute.

What is better, a single or double freestanding Sidewalk Spinner© SignSpin Sign?

They are both excellent at getting attention. It all depends on your needs, the space you have and your budget. A double gives you more message for your money, but takes up more space.

What about heavy winds?

These signs have been built to withstand winds up to 25 - 35 miles per hour. If your sign will be located in a place where there are consistently heavy winds, you might consider a cement block, sand bag or a barbell weight on the base for stability.

Should I letter the same message on both sides of my SignSpin Sign panel?

It depends on the message and whether or not one needs to see both sides in order to understand the entire message. Also simple words like PIZZA, SALE or OPEN can easily be used 1 per side effectively. However PIZZA on both sides would be more easily seen for example on a very windy day.

Since a SignSpin Sign has moving parts, does it require a lot of maintenance?

Some cities have strict sign codes. Should I be concerned about that?
