Shop Sign Letters

A buyer's guide to choosing the right shop sign letters

Choosing the right lettering for your shop sign is easy once you know all the options available. What we do at Surrey Shop Signs is advise you on all the technologies and styles possible and offer you multiple ideas on what we think would best suit your sign. If you’re struggling for ideas or need some inspiration then we’re able to present you with some popular choices which may suit your business – after all, we've manufactured and installed so many shop signs that we're able to offer you our experience and expertise.

Don't forget your shop window can also be used to display signage and we can either hang signs (even illuminated signs) inside the window or use a hard wearing vinyl sticker on the inside of the glass to create the style you're looking for and to form the shape and image that the shop projects to the outside world and passers-by. Please visit our Window Graphics page for ideas and information on this service we provide

One popular way of displaying a shop's identity on to the retail outlet without completely covering the whole front is to use a vinyl boarder which runs right round the window. This could perhaps display your company logo, your company colours and even a strapline or contact details. By doing this it promotes your brand at the same time as allow you to see out of the windows too.

Whatever you decide to go with, Surrey Shop Signs will provide you with first rate service including installation and a top quality product that will last for years to come.
