Fascias & Shop Front Signs

There are so many options available when it comes to outdoor shop signs – from a simple and affordable shop sign board to a highly impactful illuminated sign with built-up 3D lettering. There’s even large format flex-face signs that are ideal for large retail park stores. We can help you find something that’s right for your business and budget.  

Sign Trays

A popular and flexible choice for retail signage. A custom vinyl film can be applied for a cost-effective solution, or take it to the next level with raised cut or built up letters. A number of lighting options are available for maximum impact.

Flat Cut Letters

Flat cut letters are a great option if you’re looking for something a little more special, and can be mounted onto a tray sign or directly onto the wall. A range of meterials can be used including acrylic, aluminum, stainless steel and more.

Built Up Letters & Logos

High impact 3D lettering and logos come with a variety of material options, including powder coated aluminum in your brand colours, brushed effect stainless steel, polished chrome, brass and more.

Flex Face Signs

Create a seamless finish for large format signage – excellent for shops on retail parks and large business units. Flex-face signs can be illuminated to make it shine. 

Illuminated shop front signs

If you want to give your shop sign some extra sparkle, then choosing the right lighting is a must. There are many different options available to choose from, including backlit shop signs, halo effect and trough lighting.

Projecting Signs

Double-sided projecting signs work harmoniously with your main outdoor storefront sign attracting attention from all directions. From flat panels and projecting tray signs, to bespoke projecting light box signs, the options are almost endless.

Shop front signs can be made from a wide range of materials depending on the desired look and feel, size and shape of the sign, and budget. The most popular materials are aluminium composite, powder coated aluminium and acrylic. However, we also use materials such as brushed effect stainless steel, polished chrome and brass for cut lettering.

Good retail signage tells passers-by who you are and what you do. However, this needs to be short, concise and easy to understand.

Think about what you need people to know about your business – a well-known brand, such as Tesco, doesn’t need to include ‘groceries’ on their main sign because most people are aware of the brand and what they offer. Instead, they opt to include their slogan ‘every little helps’ to remind customers about their value for money proposition. However, a small independent gift shop may want to include their brand logo and a short line about what they offer, so they don’t leave people walking by guessing.

When it comes to your retail signage, having a clear and consistent brand is key. If you have the budget to do so, we recommend working with a branding professional to create your logo and brand guidelines, including fonts, colours and style guidelines. This can be applied to all areas of your business, including online platforms too.

A fascia sign is essentially any type of sign that’s mounted to the front of a building. There are many different design options for fascia signs, depending on the desired aesthetic and budget. Some examples of fascia signs include:

  • Individual 3D lettering mounted directly onto the wall
  • Aluminium sign trays – either covered in a custom vinyl film or with raised flat cut letters
  • Large format flex-face signs – ideal for large retail units
  • Illuminated signs – perfect for night time and dark winter evenings
