Choose from a range of business signs

Whether you’re on the High Street, a retail park or an exhibition centre, you need a business sign that stands out and gets you noticed in a crowded market.

At Vinyline we’re specialists in the design and creation of business signage and use the latest graphic design technology to help you create something simple, but stand out.

Shop Front Signs

The first thing many people think of when it comes to business signage is the shop front. The sign above your door should be eye-catching and unique but also simple. Ideally, a passerby should be able to read it from a distance while driving. Incredibly, according to FedEx, 8 out 10 people have entered a shop that is brand new to them simply due to the effect of its signage.

A Boards

Subtle but effective, A Boards are the smaller triangular signs you often see along the pavement outside of stores. They can add context to a brand, promote an offer or service or simply encourage visitors to enter. It’s a very good idea to tie the look of these in with the rest of your branding, from colours to fonts to the style of language used within the sign writing.

Department Signs

When it comes to attention to detail, department signs represent the point where many companies fail. These too should form a part of your branding and should be clear, concise and easy to follow. They could take the form of signs hanging from the ceiling, or they could be emblazoned on the walls themselves as decals or graphics.

Wall Graphics

Graphics or decals on the walls of your business can serve a variety of purposes. They can direct a visitor to various rooms, floors or departments, they can promote a particular set of products or services – some cafés choose to have their menu applied directly to their wall for visibility, for example – or they can simply display fun images or text to give customers a sense of wellbeing and strengthen the feel of your brand.

Window Graphics

This is an option that is sometimes overlooked and can actually prove extremely useful. If you wish to display messages on the outside of your premises, you may not have considered your windows to be a usable location for this purpose. However, applying decals to your windows can add interest and prevent the overcrowding of the rest of the facade. Remember, be sure that you don’t cover whole windows to the extent that light is blocked out unless this is purposeful!

POS Installations

50% of sales occur as a result of signage, according to the Small Business Association. This is why it’s vitally important that you invest in superb point-of-sale displays and clear signage to direct customers to your products and notify them of sales and special offers. The best POS installations are simple, sturdy and elegant and serve as an extension of your brand’s look and feel.

Building Wraps

building wrap basically serves as a giant poster or banner for your brand. It can cover the whole of your business’s facade and promote a new product launch or upcoming event. It can also serve to replace your store front in case of building works or renovation, to show that you are still going strong despite any interruptions!

Have you considered the effect of a good shop front sign on your business? Extensive research has revealed that you could be losing out on potential custom due to inadequate signage. But what constitutes an effective shop sign? And how much can it improve your bottom line?

The importance of good shop signage

The effect that shop front signs have on a business is continually underestimated. Essentially, it is the difference between you being noticed and not being noticed by customers. The ideal sign should make you stand out amongst competitors and reflect who you are and what you do – which can be achieved through effective design, the use of high-quality materials and experienced construction.

Here we look at the main benefits of a shop front sign:

  1. Get yourself noticed

It’s simple – if you display inadequate shop signs, your business is unlikely to get noticed. 30% of the public won’t even be aware of your existence, which ultimately, will have a negative effect on sales.

  1. Pique the public’s curiosity

For new businesses, a cleverly designed shop sign can help to drum up interest and attract custom. You never get a second chance to make a first impression and 50% of your first customers are likely to be found in this way – so put in the time and effort and be sure to create an eye-catching design.

  1. Easy to find

It’s quite simple really, if you can’t be found then you won’t receive custom. Potential customers may have travelled from a different area or could be visiting your store for the first time. It’s your responsibility to make sure they can find you – and a shop front sign is the easiest way to do that.

  1. Stand out from the competition

This is particularly useful if your shop is located on a high-street or surrounded by stores that sell a similar product or service. An eye-catching shop front sign will attract their attention towards your store, encouraging them to come inside and buy your products – rather than the competitors’.

  1. Reinforce your brand

Your shop front sign is the first thing that customers will see and it’s important to make the right impression. It needs to successfully portray your brand and get your message across, but it should also demonstrate the professional nature of the company and the quality of the products it sells.

  1. Advertising opportunity

85% of a shop’s main customers will live within 5 miles of the store. As a result, passers-by may see your shop front signs around 100 times a month, perhaps on their way to or from work or during a weekend shopping trip. They’re an easy method of advertisement – so make them count!

  1. Permanent exposure

Shop front signs are a permanent and continuous form of advertisement and, as 20% of the population relocate every year, they will be effective at attracting new custom all year round.

  1. Cost-effective

There are many ways in which you can advertise your business, including newspapers, TV, radio etc. However, these forms of advertisement are likely to require repeat investments – whilst having very little effect on your level of custom. By contrast, a high-quality business sign by will provide your company with many years of advertisement, for one affordable outright price.

  1. Increased sales

Up to 45% of shoppers stop to look around your store on impulse. As such, adding or updating a shop front sign can have a direct impact on sales. Whether it be an illuminated sign or a simple window graphic, effective signage can support the ultimate success of your business – catching the attention of these impulsive shoppers and enticing them inside.
