Selecting the Right Signs for the Location of Your Business

November 8, 2016

Shop signs are key in building a successful business. By making your business easy to find and identify they can help you encourage custom and repeat business.

In addition to ensuring your shop signs stay up to date it is also important for you to choose the right signs for your business in the first place.


There is no point in having shop signs if no one is going to see them. When designing and developing your shop sign you really need to consider whether the sign will be seen. There are a number of things you can do to improve the visibility of your signs. You can consider the location of your signs and place them for optimum visibility – the perfect example of this has to be clear signage above your shop entrance. You should all keep your signs short and simple to clearly communicate your message without seeming cluttered or messy. Leading on from this, you should consider using bold, crisp and powerful fonts to ensure that your business is easy to identify. To improve the visibility of your signs you should also consider using high contrast colour combinations, and create more personal and actionable signage.

Your shop signs should reflect the people you are trying to attract to your business, but you should also consider who is going to see your signs. It is important to create signage which reflects your brand but also the image and look that your customers are going for. Whether this is bold and flashy or clean cut and sophisticated, it is important to create the right signs for your customer.


Aside from your main shop signs, you may wish to consider seasonal signage, whether this is festive banners or summer sale signs, changing up your interior shop signs can have a huge impact on your business. Digital signs can be a great way to make the most of your signs as it is quick and easy to change as frequently as you want.
