When it comes to getting your business noticed, there are few things more effective than professional outdoor signage. Attractive exterior signs have been shown to significantly improve brand perception, as well as boost the likelihood of passers-by becoming potential customers.
The number of options for outdoor business signs is huge, but take a look below for some of our favourites:
A hugely popular choice for company names and straplines, built-up letters offer a modern elegance that is perfect for a wide range of businesses. From banks and estate agents to luxury retailers and restaurants, built-up lettering can be adapted to suit any brand.
Visit our built-up letters page for more information.
A less elaborate but no less striking alternative to built-up lettering, flat-cut signage combines premium sheet materials with a CNC router and laser technology. A process as suited to logo shapes and it is to lettering, the result is a sleek outdoor sign designed grab attention.
Visit our flat-cut letters page for more information.
An ever-popular form of outdoor business sign, printed swing panels provide the perfect way to get your business seen from a distance. With printing available on one or both sides, hanging signs are ideal for the more traditional brands on the high street.
Visit our hanging signage page for more information.
Not to be confused with their hanging contemporaries, projecting signs are mounted directly to the fascia of the building itself. While often internally illuminated, options available for projecting signs are endless; however, all are guaranteed to result in maximum exposure, and a memorable first impression.
Pavement Signs and A-Boards
Bespoke a-board pavement sign.
The most tried-and-tested of outdoor advertising signs, A-boards remain an effective way to promote your products or services on the high street. Pavement signage combines low investment with high visibility, ease of use, and convenient storage.

At JMF, our illumination division lead the industry in the provision of lighting for outdoor signage. Our experts have developed illuminated sign solutions for all of the outdoor signs above (including A-boards), allowing us to offer LED-based signage that is safe, durable, and eco-friendly.
We also offer a number of sign options specifically designed for illumination; if only the most dazzling sign will do for your business, take a look below:
Perfect for bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, there’s no mistaking the impact of a professionally-fabricated neon sign. Bright, attractive, and impossible to ignore; if you want to make sure your business sign leaves a lasting impression, gas-discharge neon tubes are tough to beat.
For those on a budget, micro neon signage offers the same neon styling, but at an affordable price for any business. Replacing rarified neon for LED, micro neon is suited for indoor or outdoor use, with increased options for colour and design, as well as a smaller overall carbon footprint.
Visit our neon signage page for more information.
A modern take on the traditional poster panel, LED lightboxes allow you to house your printed promotional materials in style.
Using internal or external LEDs, our lightboxes are constructed from the best in high-quality materials. Perfect for using in the shop-front window display of your retail business, LED lightboxes can boost visitors, advertise temporary promotions, or provide website, social media, and store information.
Despite their durability, lightboxes are surprisingly portable; perfect for use at a trade show or company event.

Health and Safety Signs
As a business proprietor, the safety of yourself, your staff, and all your on-site visitors is of the utmost importance. However, for many, the regulatory rules surrounding health and safety signage seem complicated, confusing, and shrowded in perplexing legalese.
As a leading supplier of indoor signage, we’ve made it our business to understand the complexities surrounding health and safety sign legislation. See our jargon-free guide to the five types of safety sign below, and give us a call to discuss how we can help keep your company compliant.
Safe Condition Signs
Safe condition signs provide information concerning emergency exits or first-aid facilities. They are generally a legal requirement for all brick-and-mortar locations and public spaces, and should be green in colour.
Fire Safety Signs
Fire safety signs display routes of escape in case of fire, or the location of fire fighting equipment. Less frequently, they display the specific source or location of the fire. Rules mandate that these signs are red.
Mandatory signs are “do” signs; they prescribe a specific behaviour. Examples include safety clothing signage, sanitation signage; anything which instructs a viewer what to do. Mandatory signs are blue in colour.
As the name suggests, prohibition signs are “don’t” signs; they prohibit behaviour likely to cause harm or injury. “No smoking” and “restricted access” are common examples. Like fire safety signs, prohibition signs should be coloured red.
Warning signs are not designed to give any specific instruction, but to provide red flags, making viewers aware of potential hazards in their environment; “mind the step” is an obvious example. Warning signs must be yellow or amber in colour.
JMF Health and Safety Signs
At JMF, we stock a huge range of health and safety signage, with the facilities to manufacture custom signs based on the specific requirements of your business or location. We use only the finest quality materials and print techniques, ensuring durability and visibility. From aluminium signs with a self-adhesive backing, to vinyl graphics for wall or floor application; all our safety signage is created with the safety of your staff and your customers in mind.
Directional signage (or wayfinding signage) comes in many forms to suit a range of different purposes. Many of the aforementioned safety signs, for instance, are directional in nature, produced to assist the movement of people in an emergency. However, from a purely cosmetic perspective, professional directional signage can play a huge role in the quality of the customer experience you provide, and the overall likelihood your customers will revisit.
Internally, directional signs can help visitors to navigate their way around your building with ease; from finding the toilets to locating the conference suite. External signs, on the other hand, provide vital information for customers trying to find your business in a hurry, or those who are using your services for the first time.
Here at JMF, we have a wealth of experience in the design, manufacture, and installation of innovative and informative wayfinding signage. We understand that every business is different, and will take the time to learn about the specifics of your establishment before giving you our top tips and recommendations for where and how your wayfinding signs should be displayed.
