Shop front signs from Voodoo DesignWorks do an important job and they do it brilliantly.

It’s the job of a shop front sign to identify and distinguish your business. That means making sure it’s seen among all the other signs promoting businesses that are out there and competing for limited attention. Your shop front signage needs to achieve this while reflecting your identity and staying on the right side of any local requirements too.

These are not the easiest of jobs to do, but thankfully you can leave them all to Voodoo DesignWorks. We’ll design, build and install a shop front sign that you’ll be proud to call your own. And we’ll try and leave some change on the table too.

We appreciate you considering us for such an important job. Let Voodoo get down to business so you can too.

Q: What are, shop front signs?

A: Shop front signage typically comprises signs that either span the frontage of a shop or similar business or that project in a perpendicular fashion from it. Such signs can be illuminated, or non illuminated, and they can be made from a variety of materials including Perspex.

Shop front signs’ lettering and logos embody a variety of construction types. For example halo-lit elements are very popular where metal letters are specified and mixed media constructions favour rim-and-return. Rimless lettering is possible in all material types but is particularly popular where Perspex is used.

Shop front signs are required by the businesses they identify to stand out day and night. This means that fascia signs for retail businesses are often lit by LEDs. Animated light effects are used but with a degree of caution as planning is sometime needed. Shop front fascia signage is primarily a branding and identity continuation measure.

Signage for shops is very often surrounded by similarly constructed signs as shops tend to occur in concentrations. The space about a shop’s frontage is easily seen from a distance and from the pave immediately in front of it. Projecting signage is used in situation where the shop’s brand must be seen from other angles. Many different constructions feature in modern shop signs.

Q: How are shop front signs made?

A: Manufacturing shop front signs involves fabrication skills, printing expertise and experience working with a range of materials including plastic, metal and wood.

Typically, shop front signs are made by routing rigid materials and then assembling the routed elements to form a finished shop fascia sign. Because such signs must endure wind and weather, materials used tend to err toward high quality products capable of lasting outdoors. Such signs have to be safe too. Elements falling from height could be dangerous if the sign is poorly built on installed. Installed signs should last at least a decade.

Finish is again a major part of shop fascia sign builds. Paints and coatings are common and self-coloured plastics preferred. Natural materials such as wood will be coated with a protection measure such as varnish.

Q: What can shop front signs be used for?

A: Shop front signs have a limited range of applications primarily focussed on retailing.

The most common application for a shop front sign is advertising the business to which the sign relates. For this reason, design is often prescribed and there is little or no license to vary the specification. Fascia signs are not typically used indoors other than in under cover malls and other shopping centres. Quality required is the same.

Shops using fascia signing today present operators with options but the requirement in terms of construction may be mandated by a shopping centre owner. To do the limited job it needs to do and to do it well, the performance of the sign must be maximised within allowed limits. Constructing such signs is a highly skilled process Voodoo does very well.
