Richard Smith, Thyme Cafe, Sheffield

Just a note to say thanks for sending through these photos - we are all absolutely delighted with the signs now that they have all been erected around the building. They really look smashing! Many thanks to Image Sign Studio for all your hard work in installing them - they have been really excellent - and last Friday was absolutely perishing cold too - so for them to have worked the entire day in the freezing cold was a major feat in itself - and very much appreciated by all of us too! Many thanks

Roger Reade, Sheffield & Hallamshire County Football Association

Image Sign Studio provided us an excellent service. They listened to our requirements, made a design that was modern, trendy, and functional. They came to place the sign at a time that was convenient to us, with professionalism and courtesy. We would whole-hearted lay recommend Image Sign Studios to anyone needing a sign.

Rev Karen Beecham - Furlong Road Methodist Church

I LOVE THEM!! Thanks to Rich and Dean at Image Sign Studio. With new branding we wanted shiny new signs and they have provided us with exactly what we had in our minds. Quick, slick and professional service.

Allie Langham, Chrysalis Photography

We have worked with Richard and his team a couple of times to create some bespoke signage for inside the cinema in Chesterfield. The team have been able to create and distribute the signage very quickly and to a high standard each time. They are able to use brand fonts and styles exactly as specified and at a price that is competitive. We shall definitely be back to use Image Sign Studios again, including some external signage work in the near future.

Paul Willden, Cineworld Chesterfield

I would like to say I pleased I have been with the service from the image sign studio. From the original phone call making enquiries to the end product and installation of the sign the service was excellent. Even though I changed my mind a couple of times with the design right up to the last minute nothing was too much trouble. The installation guys were efficient, polite and kept disruption to a minimum on the pavement outside my business. Will definitely recommend the company.

Karen, Butterfly

Lorna Rainey Vertirun

We used Image Sign Sheffield for the first time this year and were so impressed with the level of attention and customer service given to us. The plaque was absolutely designed around our vision of it and no small adjustments or last minute requests were too much trouble. They are a very professional organisation and we would certainly use them again.

Valley Park Community Primary School

Richard and his team at Image Sign Studio deliver a very efficient and professional service. Their wealth of knowledge and expertise helped us to complete our various projects, such as poster printing and exterior signage to a very high standard. We will certainly use them again when the need arises.

Things you need to consider when buying a sign

Signage is one of those simple things that can make a big difference. Just think about your local high street: the signs do not just tell you the name of each shop, but everything from what they sell to their values as a business. So, what are the things you need to consider when buying a sign?

1. What do you want the sign to do?

It might seem obvious, but you need to know what you want your sign to do. But this might not be quite as straightforward as you think. There is the obvious function, you might want a sign that advertises your business name, or it could be directional signage for your site, or even a temporary sign to advertise offers or events.

But think about the other things your sign can communicate. Your sign might carry your business branding, for example. Or you might want it to say something specific about your business: do you want to convey a traditional reliability, or do you want people to see you as innovators? By considering the image you want to portray, you can start to think about the type and style of sign you want.

2. Think about compliance and safety

It might seem boring, but you should also consider the legal and safety aspects of your sign. Some of this might be common sense: 3D signs look impressive, but they are not really suitable at head height in a busy corridor!

However, you might also need to consider issues like planning permission or restrictions if your premises are in a conservation area. And even if you are installing them internally, you might need to consider safety aspects, not just of the sign, but also how people might interact with them.

3. Think about where it will be

Finally, you know what you want your sign to do, and you know you can put it up. Now you need to think about what its location means. This will help you think about how you design it to make it stand out and work for you.

Location will be a big factor in deciding size. You won’t want a huge sign that dominates a small reception area, for example, but you might want to go big if it’s for the side of a warehouse that’s set well away from the public highway. And if you are putting a sign outside, you might want to think differently about things like the materials and lighting.

It’s about the impact

Ultimately, it’s all about the impact your sign will have, and making sure the impact is positive! You want people to notice your sign, and the sign to communicate your message. Getting a high quality, well-designed and well-placed sign is an investment. And when you have got the right sign in the right place, the return on that investment can be big.
