Window Graphics

Window graphics are typically a vinyl film that adheres to your windowpane. Window graphics are a great way to utilise limited available space for signage when applied to your street-facing windows. In addition to being great space savers, window graphics add dimension and vibrancy to your building exterior.

Window graphics also serve many purposes from inviting customers to ‘take a look’ inside your premises by drawing focus to the window or adding a layer of privacy with non-see-through window graphics. Manifestation window graphics can even help to uphold workplace safety standards.

Tray Signs

A tray sign is a flat panel folded on all four sides to resemble a tray, or ‘biscuit tin lid’. A tray sign's three-dimensional effect sets it apart from flat signage and conceals unattractive fixtures. Tray signs are a popular choice for their versatility and ease of portability, allowing them to be relocated as needed.


Illuminated signs use lighting to increase visibility and draw attention to your sign. Especially if your business operates during evening hours, illuminated signage is a great option to make sure your signage is visible to potential clients.

Here at Octagon Lincoln, we use energy-efficient LEDs for all illuminated signs so that you can reap the benefits of this style of signage while keeping costs low.


Sometimes less is more. Lettering signage eliminates the backing, focusing solely on your business name or message. Lettering signage can be effective, bold, and trendy when cleverly designed and cleverly placed.

Hanging and Totem Signs

Hanging signage is suspended in a high place, usually from a ceiling, sidewalk covering, or by using fixtures that protrude from the wall. Totem signage is a stand-alone sign resembling a long thin vertical block.

Hanging and totem signage are great options to add visual depth and structure, drawing customers toward your establishment.

Why invest in Signage?

Signage is essential for every business with a brick-and-mortar store. From making a good first impression to increasing profitability, we’ve made a list of 8 reasons why you should invest in signage.

Impactful First Impression

Your signage is likely to be the first thing potential clients see when approaching your business. In a survey of business students conducted by the University of Cincinatti, 79% of participants agreed with the statement “I can often infer the quality of a business from its signage.” At the end of the day, you only have one chance to make a first impression so be sure to make it count with high-quality signage!

Increase Brand Awareness

A cohesive brand image that includes a name, logo, colours, and even imagery, can help your brand stick in the minds of potential clients, a.k.a. increase brand awareness. Using signage that aligns with your brand image is an important step in this process.

Competitive Advantage

Use eye-catching signage to stand out from the crowd and set your business apart from other businesses on the same street or in the same neighbourhood. Well-designed and well-made signage can draw customers to your storefront and away from your competitors.

Cost Effective Advertising

Signage is among the most cost-effective forms of advertising. Unlike pay-per-impression advertisements placed via email, social media, or through other media outlets like newspapers, television, and radio, signage only incurs a one-off payment and will last you years. Moreover, Octagon Lincoln offers many types of signage to suit almost every budget.

Makes Your Business Easier to Find

If a potential client looks up your business online or hears good things from a friend, having an easily identifiable storefront makes it easier for them to come and visit. Clear signage can save clients from scanning several buildings or even searching the neighbourhood for your business, likely leaving them in a better and more relaxed state of mind.

Completely Versatile

We cannot stress it enough; signage is versatile! Whether your business is a retail store, restaurant, professional office, industrial site, or anything in between, signage can be customized to suit your needs and preferences.

Aesthetically Pleasing

We’ve spoken about the many practical functions of signage, but it is also aesthetically pleasing. Attractive signage can elevate and beautify the environment where it is displayed.

Increases Profitability

According to the International Sign Association , “Signage can improve sales by 7% and a resultant 124% increase in profits.” If that’s not reason enough to invest in signage, we don’t know what is!
