The regeneration of certain areas of Sheffield comes after a citywide strategy approved by Sheffield City Council that aims to support and promote local shopping centres. Because Darnall shopping centre was identified as having an unwelcoming environment, with a high number of badly-maintained, empty shops, money given to Sheffield Council by the Local Growth Fund was allocated to improve the area.
Spital Hill is the next area of Sheffield to receive money from the Local Growth Fund to help to smarten up the area. There are several shops, restaurants and takeaways in the area that have run down shop signs Sheffield. Sheffield council’s spokesman for neighbourhoods Councillor Harry Harpham said “Spital Hill could be a thriving and successful district shopping centre. It has a strong community, a good range of shops and community facilities, and access to transport links – but it needs a helping hand to reach its full potential.”
Refurbishment Projects in Darnall and Spital Hill
Image Sign Studio have recently been involved in the regeneration of 47 independent shops signs in Darnall, a suburb in the east of Sheffield. As it was a £300,000 refurbishment project they really had their work cut out for them, as many of the shop fronts were in a poor state of repair, which was having a knock on effect on the area as a whole.
The scheme aims to smarten up the frontages of the businesses to improve the overall look of the area. The idea is for the scheme to start the improvements off with the shop signs and frontages, and then encourage the local residents and businesses to get involved and invest in the community themselves.
Shop Signs Sheffield from Image Sign Studio
Image Sign Studio are delighted to be involved in the regeneration project in Spital Hill where they will be manufacturing and installing over 70 shop signs over the course of the next six months. They’ll be talking to businesses individually to find out what they want from their new shop sign Sheffield, and then making and installing signs for a variety of different businesses in the area. From illuminated shop signs to projecting outdoor business signs, their aim is to get the area looking smart and welcoming for what will hopefully be a new wave of shoppers coming into the area.

Outdoor flex face light boxes are effectively illuminated signs that are especially suitable for outdoor signage for retail parks, businesses signage, and shop signs Sheffield. In addition to being very robust and incredibly durable, they can be manufactured in a variety of different shapes to suit the branding of the business. They can also be used to create large illuminated letters for completely bespoke large format illuminated signs.
Flex face signs are a great option because they are really cost effective. The system used to make them is simple and versatile, and unlike ordinary banner signs, they don’t need eyelets, which cuts maintenance down giving them a long service life. The banners are printed using a process that achieves high quality colour, which hold their intensity even when the LED lights are shining through them. The flex face ‘skin’ is tightened in such a way that it gives the impression of being one flat piece of panel signage.
Shop Signs Sheffield
As experts in shop signs Sheffield, Image Sign Studio recently had the pleasure of manufacturing and installing a flex face sign for the exterior of Sheffield and Hallamshire County Football Association on Meadowhall Road in Sheffield. They also had the pleasure of meeting Uriah Rennie, the retired English football referee who was born in Sheffield. Sheffield and Hallamshire County FA were formed in 1867, making them the first County Football Association in the country to be established.
Flex Face Illuminated Signage
Our expert shop sign makers made the sign from a fabricated aluminium box. A special machine called an aluminium bender was used to create a circle from the metal, in order to create the logo for the football association. A flexible printed PVC banner fascia was then used to stretch across the front of the light box and clipped in position to create a skin over the aluminium frame. This ‘skin’ was then lit from behind with a number of low energy LEDs to illuminate the banner graphic from the inside. The LED lights are cheap to run and create an outstanding effect for a high impact sign.
