As a local print business owner, I understand the importance of having eye-catching and effective shop front signage. Your signage is the first thing that potential customers will see when passing by your store, and it can make a significant impact on whether or not they decide to come inside. Here are some tips on how to work with your printer to create shop front signage that will increase your footfall.

  • Communicate your brand messaging:
    Your shop front signage should communicate your brand message and values effectively. This can be achieved through the use of fonts, colours, and imagery that align with your brand. Work with your printer to ensure that the final product accurately reflects your brand message.
  • Choose the right materials:
    The materials you choose for your signage will impact its effectiveness. Materials that are weather-resistant and durable will help ensure that your signage lasts longer and remains legible. Your printer can help advise you on the best materials to use.
  • Keep it simple:
    Your shop front signage should be simple and easy to read. Avoid cluttered or confusing designs that can be overwhelming to potential customers. A simple, eye-catching design will help draw in footfall and create a lasting impression.
  • Consider lighting:
    Adding lighting to your shop front signage can make it more visible at night and in low-light conditions. Discuss lighting options with your printer to ensure that your signage is easily visible.
  • Take advantage of available space:
    Don’t limit your shop front signage to just your storefront. Use other available space, such as windows or awnings, to maximise visibility and create a cohesive branding message.
  • Size matters:
    The size of your signage should be appropriate for the distance from which it will be viewed. Discuss size options with your printer to ensure that your signage is easy to read and visible from a distance.
  • Get creative:
    Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your shop front signage. Creative and unique designs can help your business stand out from the competition and draw in more footfall.
