How Can Personalised Signs Help My Business?
It might surprise you how much impact a personalised sign can have on your business.
Using high quality outdoor signs to advertise your business can often be the first impression you get to make on potential customers – so it’s really important that the design of your business or shop signs reflect the quality of products or services you offer.
Like banners, good signage can be the silent salesperson of your business. Exterior signage has the power to capture the focus of passers-by. Meanwhile, indoor signage won’t just help your customers to find what they’re looking for, it can boost those all-important impulse sales too.
But, most important of all, custom signs have the power to get your brand out there. Whether it’s bespoke event signage to stand out from the rest at a trade show or something stunning to sit in a prominent roadside location, your sign lets people know who you are and what you do.

What Information Should I Include on My Sign?
Great business signs can tell people a lot about what you’re offering without actually including a huge amount. After all, pictures can tell a thousand words – so why not consider using a logo or a drawing to represent what your brand stands for?
It’s also important to get the use of colours right. Not only do you want to make sure you stand out, you’ll want to make sure that passers-by pay attention to any text or imagery you’re using.
And what about the text? Well, it’s essential to include what your business does or exactly what you want someone to get from your sign. Research has shown that 75% of people driving down the street pick out a key word from a sign the first time they pass it. So, make sure they do!
You might also want to consider including a catchy slogan, contact details and a call-to-action.
