Signs

Shop front signage made from large laser cut letters

Custom signs for internal or external use from acrylic, plastic and wood using laser cutting, laser engraving and CNC cutting up to 8′ x 4′.

Internal or external business signs are a great way to draw attention to your company and give a professional finish to your office or workshop. Be adventurous with your shop signs by combining materials, take a look in our gallery for some more examples.

Signs can be cut as individual letters or logos to be wall mounted with hover pegs or mounting tape. Alternatively text and logos can be adhered to a custom back plate. We can apply vinyl graphics to signage for more effects and to match branding.

Examples of signage options

Business signs from laser cut acrylic

Acrylic signs

Acrylic laser cut cleanly and quickly with a gloss edge and is ideal for making smart shop signs.

We use Perspex, a brand of acrylic which is weather resistant. We can suggest the best colour to match your design. Whether you are looking for laser cut individual letters, large CNC cut letters or a complete wall signage there is a huge range of 3mm and 5mm coloured acrylics to choose from. Thicker acrylics are available in white and clear. We can also engrave acrylic for detailed signage.

Bespoke wood sign

Wooden signs

Wooden signs can be made from softwood, hardwood, MDF and plywood which are available in many thicknesses. We can apply stains and polishes to the timber and a varnish to protect the timber for external use.

Wood engraves beautifully also which is great for branding or information. Although wood engraving looks great with it’s natural finish we can also suggest whether your engrave can be paint infilled for coloured text.

We can also simply cut you large wooden letters to mount to your wall, great for portable exhibition displays. CNC cut letters can be cut up to 4′ x 8′.

House signs

House signs and plaques can be made from wood and acrylic. Our CNC mill can carve beautiful lettering that can be painted and varnished for a professional finish. We can produce one off bespoke signs and offer great deals on batch orders if you are furnishing a housing estate.

Frequently asked questions

We can make signs from a range of materials suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Acrylic is guaranteed to look great for at least 10 years, even when exposed to the Great British weather. We also treat any timber to stand up to the elements.

There are a range of possible methods for mounting signs. Stand-off pegs are a great way to mount both logos and text and give a modern professional look. Should you need to mount a sign on an uneven surface then the sign can be mounted to a back board of any colour and even clear acrylic. Signs can also feature magnetic fixings to prevent damage to metal cladding.

Simply send us an email with your artwork/logo and some details about you project such as:

  • What material you would like to use.
  • The number of signs you need.
  • A idea of where you intend to mount your sign.

Don’t worry if you don’t have all this information, give us a call to discuss your needs, we offer free advice.
