i thinkyou have to check with the council as to wether you can display an a board outside, ( i think!!)
in case it disrupts people walking down the street, or causes a hazard,
like i said not sure, maybe someone else will confirm this?

mmmmmmm, singing pavement ..... what song would it sing ?
The Killers "Read my mind" :lol:


Seriously though if you are thinking of an A Board or sign....check with your local council as there are a lot of bye laws regarding them. The last thing you want is to pay out your hard earned money for an A Board and the council come and confiscate it and fine you!!!!


Nikki...I definitely am reading minds today!!!!...pity about my slow typing....

if you can get permission from council I would say def. get it. My husband and I have owned 4 successful businesses and we have always found the best form of advertising has always been firstly good recomendations from clients and fixed signage. Paper and radio, has never really worked for us like money spent on well thought out and presented business cards, vehicle sign writing and fixed signage. But if you are going to do it, do it well and not "on the cheap".

Good luck

it may be cheaper to get lettering put on your window, it cost me about £110 for 2 windows.

The window lettering is a good idea but personally to start i would go with a board. You can put a lot more information on there. Such as opening times, a short list of product brands/treatments, to get an immediate interest.

I have just been looking into this for the same reason - I am just off the high street too.

Having looked at prices my lovely husband has this weekend bought the wood and is going to make the A board then I'm getting professionally printed for £80.

I'm hoping that it will bring in alot more business.:)
