Bonjour,

First, it seems to me that écriteau and pancarte have the disctinction of being handmade, as opposed to panneau.

As for the distinction between écriteau and pancarte, I have an idea that un écriteau would usually be smaller. Est-ce exact? Y-a-t-il une autre disctinction entre ces deux derniers termes?

Merci beaucoup pour votre aide

    After doing more research I would amend my first distinction to say that une pancarte can be handmade -- whereas a panneau is (usually) not. Qu'en pensez vous?

    Personally I would use them as synonyms.

    On parle ainsi d'enseigne/panneau/pancarte publicitaire sans vraiment faire de distinction.
