The TOP NOTCH Retail Signage Checklist

June 13th, 2023

In the current climate it’s more important than ever to ensure your shop stands out on the high street. Here are some TOP NOTCH suggestions to get the most from your retail shopfront design.

1.Fascia and Shopfront Signs

Clear and Bold Design: Tray signs are an affordable choice. Made from folded aluminium, these are durable yet lightweight. Folded edges hide the fixings giving a neat, simple look. When designing the sign, ensure font is clear and easily readable design. Use bold lettering and colors that grab attention and make your message stand out from the competition.

Consider Illuminating your sign : Particularly good to be seen in the late afternoons in winter. Top Notch Signs can help you design a sign that is back lit. Built up letters with a halo glow effect can bring your sign and business to life, attracting customers and driving sales while creating a professional look. These can be installed on the fascia of the building, mounted on a rooftop or placed inside a window.

2.Window and Door Graphics 

Windows and glass doors are great surfaces for both information and seasonal signs. Add your business hours, advertise sales, announce special events and create frames for window displays. TOP NOTCH SIGNS can cover all your decal needs. We also offer window frosting and tinting to reduce glare or to offer privacy and contra-vision for one way printed graphics that enable you to see out but not in. Create an eye catching graphic display while still allowing natural light into the building.

3.Floor Stickers

Don’t neglect the floor as a potential advertising space. There are so many creative ideas for floor stickers from footprints to sale announcements. Lead customers in from the pavement, direct them to new products or use the floor to add your own flair with unique graphics, colours and branding. Top NOTCH prints both durable permanent and temporary adhesive floor stickers (suitable for smooth surfaces like tiles and laminate). We also make pavement stickers suitable for short term event signage that lasts up to 3 months in the elements.

4.Pavement Signs

This is the place to use signs that draw customers in. Perhaps its a coffee and cake promotion, a seasonal sale or being a specific product stockist that you want to showcase. These are great for changeable signage. Buy the hardware – the chalkboard, the swingboard, the poster A-board or the Ecoflex. Top Notch Signs stocks all of these and can print up a variety of changeable signs ready for your seasonal sales year.

Once you’ve planned and ordered your signs and they’ve been installed, remember that regular maintenance is vital for the creation of an inviting space. Regularly clean and maintain your signage to keep it looking fresh and appealing. Replace any worn-out or damaged elements promptly to keep your look fresh. Re-ordering from Top Notch Signs couldn’t be easier. Drop us an email or give us a call when you feel you need a refresh and we can revisit your original designs and branding and offer a new look.
