It all starts by getting to know you: your brand, your premises and what you want to achieve. Based on these detailed discussions we can then provide advice and guidance on the ideal layout, design and types of retail signage for you.

Harrisons Signs is a member of the International Sign Association so you can be confident that your Business Signage project is in the right hands.


Throughout history, different types of retail signage and business signs have been around for millennia. The Ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all used signage to identify and promote their shopfronts. And a high impact sign remains as important for retail businesses today.

Your shop signage, and especially your shop exterior signage, is going to give passing customers their first impression of your shop, your business and your products. Your sign needs to grab the attention of customers, tell them what it is you do and create the right appeal so that they want to enter your premises.

We recognise that every customer is unique, which is why we approach every customer’s demands with a blank piece of paper. However, there are a number of signage considerations which can be useful when starting the creative process; such as such as the right colours, fonts, materials, digital signage, signage lighting and more. It can also be useful to consider existing retail signage examples which you like.

From this starting point, our talented shop front signage design team is here to make sure that your business stands out from the crowd.


There’s no set answer to this question and we believe that whatever your budget is, we can make your business look good! We have options from simple cut lettering all the way up to bespoke printed or illuminated signage solutions so don’t let your budget limit your imagination!


A great design is only as good as the final product and all our signs are manufactured in our in-house workshop in York. This means we can ensure the highest standards of quality throughout the production of your signage.

Over our 110-year history, we have continually invested in our manufacturing facilities and equipment to ensure that we offer our customers a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. This means whatever material you want to work with, or however ambitious your signage requirements with have both the personnel and machinery to bring your vision to life.


The final piece of the puzzle, but arguably the most important. Our in-house team of expert signage fitters ensure that your sign is installed and finished to the highest standards, while adhering to all required regulations and industry best practice working methods throughout.
