Why Invest in the Sign Industry?

Signage is required across every single industry sector, both private and public, and provides that vital first impression of your business. Very simply, a sign or graphic can be the difference between gaining a customer or losing a customer.

On average, each person sees hundreds of signs per day and it’s our job to make sure they stand out from the crowd.

The UK signage industry was worth approx. £508m in 2021 and should be worth approximately £33bn by 2024 globally,* producing high profit margins and an ever-increasing customer base, with over 500,000 new limited companies alone incorporated into the UK each year**.

In a survey of over 1,000 businesses, 98% believed good quality signs and graphics gave a positive impression of a business with 97% saying that scruffy and unprofessional signs would make them less likely to do business.
