Low Maintenance LED Lighting

LED illuminated shop signs are extremely low maintenance. With their long life spans and excellent energy efficiency, it’s easy to understand why they have fewer maintenance demands than other systems. LEDs never burn out and they are easy to clean. As they don’t need any major protection from the elements, they are perfect for outdoor environments such as on shop fronts.

Greater Design Options With Illuminated Shop Signs

LED lighting is very versatile and offers a wide range of design options that just aren’t available with neon and fluorescent signs. LEDs are composed of multiple, separate lights, as opposed to glass tubes, and can be programmed to flash, fade, or even light up!

Increased Visibility

As well as drawing attention to your retail premises, light makes things easier to see. So whether you want to give customers who are trying to find you a helping hand, or attract the attention of passersby, lighting a sign can help.

Get Noticed at Night Time

If your shop is open at night, a lit up shop sign will attract business. But even if your business is only open in the day time, illuminated shop signs serve as a silent billboard to people passing on foot or in vehicles in the evening, and they may wish to return during normal working hours.

Energy Efficient LED Lit Signs

The LED bulbs used in our illuminated shop signs are guaranteed for 50,000 hours, and very cheap to run, especially when you compare them to conventional fluorescent tube lighting. Not only do LEDs outlast other bulbs, they don’t have any gases that can leak out and cause dimness, so they maintain a better level of brightness throughout their life spans. We use reliable electrical components of the highest quality, so that your shop sign will always shine brightly!

Now that Christmas is over and the New Year has begun, you may be turning your attention to increasing sales from your retail shop by getting noticed on the high street. Illuminated shop signs Sheffield are a fantastic way to overhaul the look of your retail premises that will ensure you not only make a great first impression, but also that you stand out from surrounding businesses.

Sheffield Shop Sign in Aluminium for Poppies Bakehouse on Ecclesall Road

leave a comment

Image Sign Studio gets lots of requests for signs in all different sizes, shapes, colours and materials. Whether you’re looking for a modern shop sign for your retail shop in Sheffield, or you’d like to create a rustic vintage feel, their expert Sheffield sign makers can help.

Professional Shop Sign Makers in Sheffield

As professional shop sign makers in Sheffield, they were asked to provide a shop sign for Poppies Bakery to reflect the image that Natalie was trying to project of an informal, vintage inspired eatery. They used an aluminium backboard with a wood print effect to achieve the look of wood, giving it a natural, rustic look. They then mounted aluminium standoff letters in pink italic letters using studs onto the backboard, adding a funky, feminine twist.

Poppies Bakehouse in Sheffield

Owner Natalie told the Sheffield Star “I could not be more thrilled to be opening my very own bakehouse in Sheffield, my home city. It has been a long-standing dream of mine to open a food-based business and thanks to this University scholarship and support it has assisted me in the process of making this happen.”

Leeds Beckett University Vice Chancellor, Professor Price commented: “Our 2014 student and graduate scholarship finalists were of an extremely high standard and Natalie’s determination and commitment to achieving her goals, coupled with her innovative and exciting business plan, made her an exceptional and worthy recipient. This scholarship will be a real lifeline to help establish Poppies Bakehouse and I wish Natalie every success with her business.

Shop Sign Sheffield and Vinyl Window Graphics

In addition to the shop sign Sheffield, they also provided vinyl window graphics for the front window of Poppies Bakery, featuring butterflies and a picket fence effect to give a quaint, outdoorsy feel to the window. The colour co-ordinated bunting and shabby chic tables and chairs that can be seen from outside finish the look perfectly, and it looks fantastic!

Poppies Bakery is the newest addition to the busy Banner Cross area of Ecclesall Road in Sheffield, offering a range of savoury dishes and freshly baked cakes and tarts. Ecclesall Road is a great mix of eclectic boutiques, independent shops and cafes, restaurants and eateries, so the new bakery will be the perfect addition to this popular street.

Sheffield born Natalie Hall, aged 24, received support for the venture by Leeds Beckett University, which awarded her the Vice Chancellor’s Enterprise Scholarship worth £3,000. The bakery is a take away and a sit-in eatery with a vintage feel and a modern twist.

Tips and Tricks to Get your Retail Shop Noticed on the High Street at Christmas from Shop Sign Makers in Sheffield

leave a comment

If you need some help with attracting customers to your retail premises, the shop sign Sheffield makers at Image Sign Studio can help. They design, manufacture and install fantastic shop signs that are sure to make you stand out on the high street this Christmas. But there are other things you can do too, and here are some of them.

Social Media Marketing and Newsletters

Ensuring that your marketing activity is sufficient over the festive season is a real must. From planning scheduled Tweets, to Facebook posts and competitions, social media is a fantastic way to get in front of potential customers, interact with them, and drive sales. Why not send out a Christmas newsletter letting your customer base know what you’ve got to offer this Christmas, or an incentive to visit your shop such as a voucher or free gift with any purchase?

Christmas Themed Display

Getting creative with displays can help your shop to thrive at Christmas time. Make your goods look as attractive as possible to your customers; think red and gold, fairy lights and snowflakes to create a winter wonderland effect. Make sure that your most popular items are prominent, and always place smaller items that are suitable for stocking fillers near the till. This will encourage people to make impulse buys and last minute purchases before they pay.

Run a Festive Sale

Christmas is a great time to promote a sale. It’s an expensive time of year for many, so everyone is on the look-out for a bargain. Not only can a good sale help to increase revenue and profit, you’ll also attract customers that may return to your premises in the New Year.

Hire Temporary Staff

During this exceptionally busy time, you may want to think about whether you’ll need an extra pair of hands. Employees will often want to take some time off over the festive season, so ensuring that you’re covered for this is a must. It may be worth approaching a local temping agent to find short term staff, as although you can’t predict the rush, you’re sure to be busier over this time.

So now that Christmas shopping is in full swing, retail shops need to act now to maximise their profits over the festive season!

Vehicle livery is a fantastic way of reinforcing your business branding. By making your vehicle unique and extending your branding through vehicle livery, you’re sure to get noticed.

Reinforce Branding Through Company Vehicles

The consensus among the general public is that people tend to have a more favourable opinion of a company if they have seen their branding through company vehicles. Not only does it establish a sense of trust as potential customers can see that the business is active in the area, people feel that the company is well established and being used by local people.

Signage Sheffield and Vehicle Livery

They can also be made to fit any vehicle, whether it is a car, van, truck or lorry.

One of the great things about vehicle signage Sheffield is that it is an incredibly cost effective way of advertising your business. Vehicle graphics from Image Sign Studio are high quality and reasonably priced, ensuring maximum exposure and a great advertising opportunity. As your business vehicle is likely to be seen on the roads by thousands of people, the price of vehicle livery is a relatively small outlay when you consider the amount of advertising it will provide your business with.
