Fascia Signs

A shop sign made from a flat panel.

A flat panel is, quite literally, a sheet of material fixed to the front of your premises with graphics to the face. It’s a low cost way of ensuring your shop sign is advertising to people walking / driving past 24/7.
Opting for a flat panel shop sign that uses a strong material suitable for indoor or outdoor, use will enable you to maintain a uniform brand image throughout your business.
These shop front signs are sometimes known as sign boards and are one of the cheap signage options compared to others.

It is a form of outdoor signage of course and the materials we use are suited for use as such. This style of sign is very popular for salon signs / hair and beauty signs.

‘Flat Panel’ doesn’t mean boring though and our graphic design team will ensure your shop front sign looks incredible for a long time indeed.

3D Sign Letters on a Shop

3D Letters

Perfect for illumination or stand alone

3d sign letters look like they’re made from a solid lump of material but are actually hollow backed allowing for LED illumination to be mounted inside the letters.

When illuminated this gives a fantastic soft glow shining out of the back like a halo of light.

Material options are slightly more limited than flat cut lettering (acrylic / s.steel) but the aesthetics are outstanding.

Price Guide: £900 – £2000+

Shop Sign Light Box

Panel insert allows for sign to be updated

Light boxes are typically used as outdoor signs. They have an aluminium frame (doesn’t rust) and internal LED illumination (no bulbs to change & low running cost).

An acrylic panel with graphics to the front allows light through and diffuses the light so that no ‘hot spots’ are visible.

Both the frame and the panel can be colour matched to suit your requirements.

Price Guide: £1200 – £2000+

Illuminated Signs

LED illumination at low running costs

Pencil Light Illumination
A pencil light down/up lighter is a tidy way of illuminating your shop sign without resorting to a lightbox. The light comes from LEDs within a tube mounted either above or below the sign and shines back and across the face of the sign. This avoids shedding light needlessly away from your premises.

Available in lengths to suit the width of any sign.
Price Guide: £380+

Illuminated shop signs are a great way to attract customers and promote your business. They come in a variety of styles and can be customized to fit your budget and needs. Illuminated shop signs are especially effective, as they can be seen from a distance and make your business stand out from the competition.

The cost of an illuminated shop sign will vary depending on a number of factors, but the benefits far outweigh the costs as an illuminated shop sign will pay for itself many times over by attracting new customers and boosting sales.

      Very happy with the site boards we ordered! Materials and printing to a high standard – very professional finish. Excellent service too. Friendly staff and good communications, so all went very smoothly. We were lucky enough to find the company through Google Search and would definitely recommend them to others.

    • Suzie Hellier

      Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.

    • Paul Daly

      Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.

      If you are nervous or anxious about getting your signage done then these are the people who will put you at your easy with their friendly, helpful and patient approach they guided me through the process. They listened, asked questions and made suggestions to ensure they understood what I wanted the finished signage to look like. I loved the end product, so a huge thank you to you all.

    • Kevin Munnings

      I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!
