Exterior Signs

Professional outdoor signage is a great way to get people to notice your business. Good signage makes your brand look better and also makes more people into potential customers.

There are a lot of outdoor options available, but here are some of our most popular signs:

Built-Up Letters

Many businesses choose to use built-up lettering for their company name or slogan. This type of lettering is modern and elegant, which makes it a good choice for a wide range of organisations. It can be adapted to suit any brand, whether you are a bank, an estate agent, a luxury retailer, or a restaurant.

Flat-Cut Letters

CNC routers and laser technology can be used to create sleek exterior signs that are guaranteed to attract attention. This process is suited for shapes and logos as well as lettering, and is a particularly popular choice for shop signs and retail locations.

Hanging Signs

Protruding swing panels are a great way to attract customers to your business from a distance. Commonly utilising digital print technology, hanging signs can feature branding on both sides, making them perfect for standing out on the high street.

Projecting Signs

Projecting signs differ from their hanging contemporaries in that they are mounted directly to your building’s facade. Available with bold illumination options, projecting signs are a great way to stand out at night or in dimly lit environments.


Banners are one of the most versatile and affordable ways to advertise your business. A banner can be produced quickly and cheaply, with large-format print technology that makes your graphics look incredible. We specialise in producing banners to our clients’ exact specifications—whatever size space you need to fill, we’ve got it covered!

Pavement Signs

Pavement signs are a fantastic way to advertise special offers, events, or directions to your business. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, and come in a variety of styles to suit any need, including A-boards, swinger signs, and water-base signs.

Illuminated Signs

The JMF illumination team have established a reputation for providing industry-leading light solutions for commercial signage projects. Some of our main offerings include:

LED Light

Our LED modules support almost all signage formats, and are just the thing if you’re looking to get your business noticed.

LED lighting is safe, durable, and eco-friendly, and is often used for illuminating box signs, channel letters, and 3D logos.

Neon Signs

If you need your business sign to be noticed, gas-discharge neon tubes are a great option. They’re bright, attractive, and hard to ignore. Plus, they can be used for bars, nightclubs, and restaurants.

For people who want to save money, micro neon signage is a good option. It has the same look as regular neon but it is more affordable. You can use it indoors or outdoors and there are more colors and designs to choose from. It also has a smaller carbon footprint than regular neon.

Lightbox Signs

LED lightboxes are a modern way to showcase your posters and promotional materials. They are perfect for retailers to use in their shop-front window display, or can be used to display promotional posters at trade shows or company events.

Health and Safety Signs

As a business owner, it’s important to keep yourself, your staff, and all your visitors safe. However, it can be confusing to understand the health and safety signage regulations. They can seem complicated and difficult to follow.

At JMF, we make a point of providing our clients with clear information about health and safety signage, ensuring they stay safe and compliant.

  • Safe Condition signs provide information about emergency exits or first-aid facilities. They are usually a legal requirement for all brick-and-mortar locations and public spaces. The signs should be green in colour.
  • Fire Safety signs help people know how to escape a fire. The sign will show the way out and where to find firefighting equipment. These signs are red so that people can see them easily.
  • Mandatory signs are blue and instruct people on what they should do. They are usually safety or sanitation signs.
  • Prohibition signs are “don’t” signs. They tell people not to do things that can harm or injure them. These signs should be coloured red.
  • Warning signs are meant to be red flags, making viewers aware of potential hazards in their environment. For example, “mind the step” is a common warning sign. Warning signs must be yellow or amber.

Directional Signs

There are many different types of directional signage. Some signs are made to help people in emergencies. Other signs are made to simply improve the customer experience.

Internal directional signs can help visitors find their way around your building. This is helpful for people who need to go to the bathroom or find a conference room. External signs can help new visitors locate your business without hassle.

At JMF, we have a lot of experience in designing and installing wayfinding signs. We understand that every business is different, so we take the time to learn about your specific requirements before giving you our top tips and recommendations for where and how your wayfinding signs should be displayed.

Window Graphics

If you run an office, store, or other brick-and-mortar premises, window graphics and stickers can be a low-cost, high-impact signage option. They are perfect for catching the eye of potential clients, as well for promoting your services through effect design and branding.
