Shop Front Signs Reflect Your Brand and Image

Your shop sign is the first element of your business seen by consumers and is arguably what determines their opinion of your business. Creating the right first impression is vital in business, and putting customers off before they enter your shop is the last thing you want to do. Almost 70% of consumers say that they believe shop signs are a clear reflection of the quality of the products and services sold in the shop.

The signs you use outside your business should reflect the vital elements of your company: brand style, personality and ethos. By displaying a clear, attractive sign outside your shop will create a reputable image for your brand, encouraging them to visit your shop to see more of your business. Creating the right impression can even increase your sales by enticing more potential customers into your shop.

Shop Signs To Stand Out from the Crowd

Creating attractive shop signage can help your business to stand out on a busy street, drawing customers towards your shop. With anything from a bold, bright sign, to a simple, attractive sign, standing out from the crowd is inevitably going to attract people to your shop.

Your customers are likely to associate your shop with quality if your shop sign is of a high quality.

Create Impulse Sales

Today consumers tend to make purchases based on their habits and impulses. The majority of sales actually come from impulse purchases. To take full advantage of consumer’s impulse buying habits, it is vital to have effective shop front signs. Displaying clear, attractive shop signs will catch the attention of consumers encouraging them to enter your shop. Once you have managed to entice them in, they are much more likely to make a purchase, boosting your sales.


Not only do your shop signs bring customers in when you are open, but attractive shop signs promote your business 24/7.

Be Found

Customers who have heard about your shop before will appreciate signage as it will assist in finding your business. If you are failing to display your business name effectively, chances are you are missing out on sales. Consumers who have heard about your business through word of mouth etc. want to identify your business easily – there is no better way to do this than with a shop sign. Shop signs make your shop easy to identify and find, encouraging customers to come back again and again.

Invest in Your Business

Having appropriate and effective shop front signs for your business is arguably one of the greatest investments you can make in your business. Investing in signage for your shop will be beneficial for your business for years to come. From enticing new customers, to developing a clear image to reflect your business, shop signs will benefit your business from day one.
