have you seen comprehensive/symbols-a4.pdf – cmhughes Mar 24 '12 at 16:15

Using the shapes library from PGF/TikZ you can easily produce some fancy arrows:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[%
test1/.style={signal, draw, text=white, signal to=nowhere},
test2/.style={single arrow, draw=none}]
\node[test1,fill=magenta!40!black, signal to=east] at (0,0) {Go on to next page};
\node [test2,fill=red!50] at (0,-1.2) {Go on to next page} ;
\node [test2,fill=blue!50, single arrow head indent=1ex] at (0,-2.4) {Go on to next page};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


Of course, once you've decided the kind of arrow you want to use, you can build a macro to obtain the arrow; something like this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{calc,shapes}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text

\newcommand\GoArrow{%
\begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture]
\node[signal, draw, text=white, signal to=nowhere,fill=magenta!40!black, signal to=east,anchor=east]
at ($(current page.south east) + (-2,2)$) {Go on to next page};
\end{tikzpicture}
}
\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-5]
\GoArrow

\end{document}


and the lower portion of the page produced:

also, tikz provides a "current page" node, this is very useful for absolutely positioning an arrow such as this near the bottom right of a page consistently and quickly. – grizzilus Mar 25 '12 at 2:42
@grizzilus: yes, that's what I implied with my last remark, but you're right, I will make it explicit with an example. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 25 '12 at 2:44

I suppose what you want is text over the arrow indicating "Go to Next Page". If that is the case then you can try:

 \documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\begin{document}
$\xrightarrow{\text{Go on to next page}}$
\end{document}
