The design, placement, quality and finish of building signs can say everything about a business. It is important to ensure that correct materials are chosen that will work well with the overall design, layout and where applicable, the relevant historic period. Exterior building signs must fit well with the building, its surrounds, the environment and often, planning laws. Action Signs have 25+ years experience in designing and making signs which complement the architectural and natural features of a building.

Our building signs are often iconic and aspirational and add real aesthetic quality to their setting. Conversely, a badly made and designed building sign can detract from the overall image of your business in the mind of the viewer. We can advise you on exactly which type of sign will work best for your building based on our years of experience in designing, making and installing building signs.

No matter whether you’re looking for the perfect sign for the exterior wall of a modern, contemporary structure or an sign to breathe new life into a dated building  we have the expertise and experience to help.
