Building Signs

Lavastar has been one of the UKs premier signage providers in building signage since its incorporation in 2015, combining the care and consideration of a family business with the expansive range of services and production capabilities of much larger competitors. Whether your business is looking for faithful reproduction of your own designs, or want a full service package that includes graphic design, we’re committed to delivering the kind of quality your project deserves.

We understand that every building sign requires a unique approach – whether that’s in materials, purpose or design, and we make sure we fully understand what you need before we’ll provide a quotation – so that you know you’re being quoted for what you need, not what we need to sell.

What are building signs?

Building signs fall into several related categories, but are – like all signage – about communication. Signs tell the observer more than you might think, and everything from the materials to the lighting say something about who or what the sign represents – just as a picture can speak a thousand words, a building sign can do the same about your building or business.

  • Exterior building signs: – these can be everything from your logo on a plaque (think doctors surgeries) all the way up to expansive, custom signs designed and built to make a statement about the business or building they represent.
  • Interior building signs: – again, available in a range of sizes, interior buildings help to stake your claim on your section of a building with multiple occupants, helping you to tell visitors exactly what you’re about at a single glance.
  • Commercial building signs: – a subcategory of both the exterior and interior building sign, a commercial building sign is just a descriptor which implies a sector specific specialism. Not only is a commercial building sign designed and constructed to make a statement – it’s also intended to influence buying decisions.

What are building signs made from?

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer to this question – each building sign should be designed and manufactured to meet the unique requirements of the business they need to represent. Whether you’re looking for a reclaimed wood sign to properly reflect your brand’s commitment to environmentalism, or a steel and neon design that conveys a retro-futuristic aesthetic, your building sign should be as unique as your business.

Our experts have designed signage for businesses across a huge spectrum of sectors, and are familiar with the standards and traditions of them all – allowing you to abide by them or subvert them as you require.

At Lavastar, we also provide a free site survey, which helps us to make sure that you’re getting a bespoke product that suits your needs (and also helps us to reduce unforeseen problems and keep timescales to a minimum).


What is a good size for building signage?

This all depends on where you want your building sign to be seen from. The industry rule recommended by experts proposes having the letters at least 26mm tall for every 7.5 meters in distance to ensure it can be read by passing by traffic.

What are building signs for?

Building signs are statement pieces which tell the observer more than you might think. Everything from the materials used to the lighting, lettering and more, all say something about who or what the sign represents - delivering a feeling as much as information.

What are the benefits of having building signs?

Just as a picture speaks a thousand words, building signs can do the same about your building or business - the right sign can communicate everything a visitor or customer needs to know about you at a glance - your price point, your eco-credentials, the quality of your offering and much more.
