Free standing window signage for Hunters Estate Agents
When Hunters Estate Agents approached us to look at the signage for their new location on Mint Street, London, there was one challenge. Their landlord would not allow any signage or fixings on the exterior of the building.
This meant a conventional shop fascia sign would simply not be an option – so we got our thinking caps on. The solution we proposed to Hunters was a free standing, illuminated sign to be placed on the inside of their shop window.
The sign consists of seven 370mm-tall letters which spell out the ‘Hunters’ name, all handcrafted from 30mm acrylic in our workshop. Integral LED light strips were then fitted within each letter, before being installed on-site by our team.
Hunters were thrilled with the finished product and the result is a stunning 3D sign which catches the attention of passers-by both day and night, befitting of the Hunters brand and this exclusive location.
“Fantastic. We are so happy with the service. Our office looks fantastic and we are really happy with the results. We would highly recommend.”
Vakas Akhtar, Director, Hunters – Tower Bridge
Since our relationship began with Belvoir, we have successfully completed 280 shop rebrands, manufacturing and installing internal and external signage. We project managed the refit with the franchisees helping them choose the right signage, made to their specifications, using a wide range of materials, lighting options, and finishes to bring their shops to life. In a competitive market, it was important to Belvoir that their shops really stood out from the crowd.
“Harrisons came well recommended by Belvoir Central Office, and they certainly met our expectations. In the planning, there was excellent advice on achieving the brand look required, but with an expert eye that took account of the very open plan nature of our office. Everything was agreed without difficulty and the pricing was competitive. On the day of install, the team worked hard all day to complete against a very tight deadline, and left with everything perfect. One little bit of snagging was sorted immediately, and the enormous amount of compliments we have had from clients is testament to the look Harrisons have achieved, Staff also take great pride in the new office look and feel!”

Hunters Estate Agent
We have worked with Hunters for the last two years as their preferred supplier for all their sign and display products, winning Supplier of the year 2016, which we’re extremely proud of.
Each shop had its own specific requirements, some of which required local planning permission. Whether it was LED shop facias, traditional built up or flat cut letters or projecting signs, we were able to meet their needs. LED window displays are bespoke to each shop together with the wall graphics and large format printed maps. All of which are produced by Harrisons in our 10,000-sq. ft. workshop.
“This office looks amazing! The lads from Harrisons are a credit to the firm, they did a great job fitting out the office. The service has been brilliant from design to completion – thank you.”
Director, Hunters – Chesterfield
Fresh Student Living
“We work with Harrisons on many projects and I would recommend them to anyone requiring signage. I regularly speak to different departments, including the design team, operations and the fitters who are all very helpful. We regularly need signage to be fitted last minute and with tight turnaround times Harrisons are always able to deliver on this. We had two areas at The Towpath to add signage, including on-site hoarding and scaffolding banners and our marketing suite signage. As always, all of the signage installed was to a high standard.”

Artwork installed in York Hospital Children's Ward
Harrisons Signs printed and applied this eye catching artwork at York Hospital Children’s ward working with the Trusts Art Team. The Trust’s Estates Team freshened up the walls with a lick of paint and a bright new colour scheme, ready for the addition of child-friendly illustrations.
The Arts Team commissioned local illustrator Tanya McClelland to produce the artwork, working with patients, visitors and staff to choose the final designs. Tanya’s playful illustration was perfect for the project, with designs taking inspiration from parks and outdoor spaces across the city of York and the beaches of Yorkshires East Coast.
Hospitals are traditionally known for their clinical appearance, the new look for the children’s bedrooms has certainly added some brightness and colour, giving the children something refreshing to look at.
“I just wanted to thank Harrisons for printing the Children’s Ward 17 illustrations on vinyl they look great! And Alan Wise in particular for installing them he was very helpful, patient and respectful to the needs of the patients in each of the rooms the vinyl circles were fitted in.”

Energi - Trampoline Park
Harrisons were delighted to design and create the wall and window graphics for Energi Leisure Park.
The graffiti artwork was done by one of our in-house designers. We worked with Energi to highlight the key words associated with trampolining and what style of graffiti would suit that word. The agreed artwork was then digitised and printed by Harrisons on special wall art vinyl that had to be heated and rolled onto the brickwork – a truly real life finish that literally did fill the place with energy.
“Tasked with dealing with the signage and visual impact of the venue, we approached Harrisons as we wanted to use a local company to help with our new adventure In York. Not having any prior knowledge of signage or graphics, Harrisons talked us through the process from start to finish. With a very basic brief we were suitably impressed with the proposed impactful designs, and felt they had captured exactly what we needed! The finished installation looked amazing, and we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from customers since we opened!”
Aaron Cook – Director at Energi York
Goodchilds Estate Agents
Harrisons Signs completed the signage at my business Goodchilds Estate Agents in Telford. The Signage was cost effective and the quality much better than other offices who had used other signage companies. Well worth using and a great work ethic from the installers.
