Shop Front Signage
Give your business a brand new facelift with shop front signage!
Shop front signage isn't just for retail stores. Factories, offices and businesses occupying any sort of building with public street frontage can benefit from good shop front signage! After all, how will people know who you are without a properly branded building facade?
Shop front signage comes in many different formats, and every job we do is a custom one, tailored to suit your business and your budget. We sit with you to discuss every facet of your shop front signage to ensure you get the best possible outcome for your business.
First, we work out your budget and the scope of works. This is an essential step in the process, as there's such a huge range of options for shop front signage, ranging from beautifully fabricated illuminated signs, to a simple print on a flat panel. We discuss what you're hoping to achieve and what you're able to budget for, and find a solution that satisfies both of these things.
Then, we put together a design package for you from your brief and our discussions. This cohesive pack will tie all the various parts of your shop front together, from your windows and walls to your overhead building signage. You have the opportunity to make changes here, until you're happy with how everything looks. We'll also liaise with any 3rd parties such as body corporates or landlords, and your local council, on your behalf where necessary.
From there, we manufacture your signage then install everything for you! It's as easy as that.
So what sorts of things can you do with shop front signage?
A classic component of the retail shop front is the fascia, and there are so many wonderful options to explore. These need to be viewable from the road, from pedestrians on the sidewalk, and also from the opposite side of the road, so you want them to be concise and not overwhelm the viewer. Depending on your available space and budget, we can look at doing such signage as:
- frame-mounted cladding with push-through illuminated logos / letters;
- simple flat panel signage with 3-dimensional or flat graphics;
- or an illuminated lightbox or fabricated illuminated lettering.
Under awning signage
Another classic component of retail shop fronts is under awning signage. Suspended beneath your awning, these are positioned to attract the attention of pedestrians walking on the sidewalk. These normally consist of either:
- a double sided lightbox;
- or a hanging frame with either a flat or folded panel to both sides. The graphics can be done in print, cut vinyl, or 3D laser cut acrylic.
Of course if you want something a little different, there's other materials and options to explore, but you'll still need to take the practicality of the location into consideration. Under awning signs are pretty straightforward, and it's best to just keep it simple.
Front window signage
The front windows make up some great real estate on your building, whether you're in a factory, office or retail shop front. How we utilise these in the overall look of your building will be determined by the purpose of the windows. After all, if you're a fashion retailer, you want people to be able to see in and look at the clothing, but if you're in an office complex, you may want more privacy. Some options for front window signage are:
- laser cut acrylic logo on the glass (popular in shopping centre retail outlets);
- decorative feature window vinyl;
- decorative frosted window vinyl;
- one-way vision window prints;
- or even just a visibility strip to comply with building regulations.

Your front door signage is the last thing a person sees before they enter your place of business. In some instances, it may be the only area you have available to you for your company branding. It is therefore important to consider what you want on there, and what you'll need to take into consideration. Commonly user door signage options include:
- your company logo;
- your trading hours;
- your contact details;
- and sometimes your street number if it's not already located on the building.
Other popular shop front signage options can include:
- building painting and signwriting;
- outdoor poster cases, black boards or menu boards;
- or banners and flags.
