For business park and office managers, the COVID-19 pandemic was the catalyst for a seismic shift in the way employees engaged with their work environment. With the proportion of home-based and hybrid workers continuing to increase, administrators must pull out all the stops to ensure their offices remain safe, secure, vibrant, and productive places for those who still choose to use them.
Whilst it would be disingenuous to claim that office signs can offer the solution to the work-from-home problem, high-quality outdoor signage has been shown to be significantly beneficial in attracting clientele, cultivating a brand image, and boosting public perception. Both within and without the office, professional business signs can make a big difference to customers, visitors, and staff at all levels.
At JMF Group, we have been providing the highest quality professional office signage to businesses for over 40 years. Our all-service agency covers everything, from site survey and design, to manufacture and installation, ensuring all of your business signs are an on-brand reflection of your products and services.

For many businesses, the first impression your customers will have of you is through your outdoor signage. From the logo on your building to the directional signs in your car park, it’s crucial that your outdoor signage is up to date, well-maintained, and reflective of your brand.
At JMF Group, we offer an unrivalled number of signage solutions for outdoor use; take a look below for some of our favourites:
For the ultimate in quality and craftsmanship, it’s difficult to beat built-up letter signage.
Hand-fabricated by our time-served expert manufacturing team, these 3D signs are painstakingly constructed using grade C blowpipe solder, MIG and TIG welding, and structural adhesives that guarantee durability and long-term weather resistance.
With a range of material options available—including acrylic, stainless steel, brass, copper, and aluminium—these built-up signs can be combined with LED lighting modules to leave a striking impression on all who view them.
For more information, visit our dedicated built-up lettering page.
While built-up lettering is the perfect choice for maximum impact, if you’re looking for more subtlety with your business sign, flat-cut lettering can be the answer.
Employing a CNC router and high-power laser, the flat-cut process accurately slices sign materials from sheets of high-quality raw material. Available with a range of finishing and illumination options, flat-cut letters are the ideal way to promote your brand in an understated way.

For office parks or those businesses with large premises, post-mounted signs can be a great way to ensure your visitors can find their way around with ease.
This directional signage can be supplied single- or double-post-mounted, with these flex-face printed signs that support full colour. An ideal option for those with high-colour marketing materials, or those on a limited budget.
A modern twist on the classic post-mounted sign, sign trays offer a more contemporary look for your outdoor signage.
Featuring internal LED lighting as standard, these letter signs are fabricated from either aluminium or stainless steel and can be powder-coated in any RAL colour to perfectly match your branding.

Whilst outdoor signs can be great for generating positive first impressions, when it comes to offering staff and customers a positive experience, effective indoor office signs are vital.
Take a look below for some interior sign ideas that can enhance your customer’s experience, and increase staff productivity in the process:
As the first port of call for customers and guests, your reception area should send a warm welcome, as well as a clear indication of your brand message.
For a budget solution, vinyl wall decals can be a great way to achieve this. Available in full colour, these high-resolution signs can be supplied in any size or shape, with easy application, and fantastic durability.
If your brand is more playful and bright, you might want to consider neon or micro neon signage. Available in any size or shape, these signs can really make a bold statement in your reception area.
Or, if money is no object, an LED lightbox or digital display might be the way to go. Ideal for promoting a company event or displaying important information for visitors, these eye-catching signs are sure to let your customers know they’re dealing with a premium brand.
Once your guest is in the building, it’s important to make sure they can find their way around easily.
Clear and concise wayfinding signs can be a great help in this regard, with these visual aids available in all manner of sizes, shapes, and colours. For those on a budget, vinyl wall decals can again be a great option, with these signs offering fantastic durability and ease of application
For a more luxurious look, flat-cut or built-up lettering can be used to create 3D signage that will guide clients around your premises in style.
Office Door Signs
Any business with more than one office or meeting room will know the importance of effective door signs. Not only do they help clients and guests find their way around, but they also help staff to stay organised and on track.
There are a few different options available when it comes to office door signs. Vinyl decals can be an affordable solution for those on a budget, whilst engraved or printed acrylic signs offer a more premium look.
Perfect for meeting rooms (not to mention a legal requirement for offices with glass walls and panels), glass manifestation can help to prevent accidental collisions, as well as offer a degree of privacy and security to occupants.
There are countless different types available when it comes to glass manifestation, with frosted vinyl film a popular choice for many businesses. A perfect option for businesses looking to save money, manifestation is created to the exact specifications of your building, deciding to account for curves, doors, or breaks in the wall.
For more information, visit our dedicated glass manifestation page.
Mandatory Signs / Health and Safety Signs
Whatever your industry or trade, if you operate brick-and-mortar premises, it’s essential to make sure you’re compliant with signage rules and regulations. Failure to do so can put you, your staff, your clients, and your business itself in jeopardy.
At JMF, we stock the widest range of mandatory and health and safety signage, with custom sign options available for those businesses with particular requirements. Whether used to display exit routes or provide first-aid instructions, we supply all our mandatory office signs with an emphasis on clarity, durability, and readability.
