For every type of business, having a high-quality and impressive shop front sign is essential for attracting customers. By far the largest exterior signs on display for any retail store, eatery, office or agency, shop front signs must effectively convey the business’ name, branding, style and target market. They can be as permanent as the interior décor of the establishment, meaning that durability of construction and an iconic, timeless design are needed to make them as good a front for the business as possible. At Centurion Signs, we have extensive experience in designing, manufacturing and installing shop front signs for clients of all sizes and industries. Using a selection of proven techniques, we can create eye-catching signs that will add value to any business, and express the brands of every client in a way that speaks to the creativity, quality and style of the business itself.

Flat-cut Lettering

Flat-cut lettering is used in our designs for shop front signs to create a slick and professional appearance. By utilising high-grade materials and refined techniques, we manufacture our flat-cut-lettering signs with an attention to detail that reflects the quality of service and care of the companies they are made for. Ideally used for businesses like estate agents, banks and offices, it is a suitable design option for signs of any shape, size or business. Whilst using similar techniques for each sign of this type, no two signs from Centurion ever look the same, as we develop the design to suit the brand and target market of each client.

Built-up Lettering

Shop front signs that utilise built-up lettering make a bold impression on passers-by. The extra depth afforded by the raised lettering emphasises the shop’s name whilst literally standing out from the shop front itself. The three-dimensional effect is dynamic and adds life to what might have originally been an ordinary-looking sign; ideal for use outside a clothing store or restaurant, where the brand and atmosphere of the business must be conveyed effectively. The high-quality materials we use when designing built-up lettering on shop front signs makes them look substantial and sturdy, whilst also providing greater resistance to weathering and degradation so that over time, the sign remains as bold and impressive as the day it is installed.

Illuminated Signs

If our clients need signage that really amazes and attracts their customers, we always recommend an illuminated sign, which is a great way of adding to the atmosphere of the business, whilst also drawing more attention to the sign in the dark. Bars, restaurants and nightclubs benefit the most from illuminated shop front signs, as they are the kinds of business that tend to be open the latest into the evening, when illumination is key. These businesses also require standing out from their competition and being easily identified from a distance on a busy high street or in a town centre, so having an illuminated shop front sign can go a long way towards securing the custom of passers-by.

Shop Front Sign Quality

In addition to these common styles of shop front signs, there are many other variations and techniques we can use to create stunning exterior signs for any business; including everything from hanging signs and displays to projecting signs and banners. Thanks to the flexibility and quality control afforded by our in-house manufacturing facility, as well as our collective decades of experience of working with many different industries, we are able to design and manufacture an array of striking and unique shop front signs, tailoring each one to suit the needs, desires and branding of each client. Our range of industry accreditation ensures that we keep our standards of manufacturing and installation exceptionally high, and our service continues even after installation, as we provide maintenance and repair for any problems that may arise over the lifespan of each new sign.


  • "First class job done by all the team at Centurion after the recent install of our Princess Royal Event Centre Large format backdrop and signage panels. The weather was very challenging on the day of install but the finish was outstanding and I speak for all at Ayr Racecourse in saying thank you!"
