Professional Signs For Your Business

Outdoor business signs are an essential tool for retail outlets, hospitality venues, showrooms and forecourts, but are also used by museums, cinemas, entertainment venues, salons, supermarkets, schools, colleges, training centres, churches, community and leisure centres and even medical facilities.

Our range of external business signage offers an extensive choice of displays on different materials depending on where you want to use them. 

We offer a range of cut to size, custom business signs in a choice of printed Foamex, Dibond aluminium composite sign boards or custom PVC banners with eyelets. They are made to order and specifications to suit your business and location. We can design and cut custom shapes using rigid boards that are printed with UV resistant and weatherproof inks for long-lasting outdoor signage. 

Aluminium wall signs are most often mounted outside shops, hospitality venues and salons showcasing branding. They are a simple and effective wayfinding sign for letting people know where your business is located. 

Street signs are a popular choice of outdoor business sign. Flexible and freestanding, street signs can be set up quickly and easily wherever you need them most - and you typically don’t require planning permission as long as you don’t block any roads or pavement thoroughfares. 

Wall-mounted displays offer a more fixed solution and are commonly found in more community-centric locations such as churches, libraries, community centres, medical facilities and even supermarkets. Our illuminated LED backlit business signs provide a professional look that will help it stand out even at night.

Post and panel signs are a practical choice for outdoor signage and directional signage for pointing people in your direction/making them aware of your company.

Frequently Asked Questions

Outdoor business signs are a great option for all kinds of businesses, from retail to hospitality, events to beauty salons. They are designed to promote the products and services that your business offers. A well-positioned advertising display will make customers look towards business, focusing their attention on your premises. 

For outdoor business signs, you should consider 3-30-3 rule. This stands for:

  • 3 seconds - most visitors only look at the display for 3 seconds. This is where the visual familiarisation with the sign takes place, and this piece of information usually includes an eye-catching title, a large image, or both. 
  • 30 seconds - as long as the display caught their attention in the first three-second phase, its viewing lasts about 30 seconds. The main information is usually longer described in 1-2 paragraphs. 
  • 3 minutes – the display which will grab the attention of visitors thematically and graphically will be viewed up to 3 minutes (in detail).

You want to display information that’s going to catch people’s eye initially, then draw their interest and focus long enough to get your message across. For more information, check out our blog Make Your Business Stand Out From The Rest With An Outdoor Business Sign
