Signs Express Franchise – 25 Years in Business
Signs Are Our Business, Make Them Yours
Are you looking for a business opportunity with high rewards, in a fun and creative sector and with all the benefits of an established brand?
Established for over 25 years and with more than 60 franchisees, Signs Express is the UK and Ireland’s leading signs and graphics franchise.
Our national reputation for providing quality interior and exterior signs, vehicle and window graphics and banners and exhibition displays accompanied by excellent customer service, has lead to sustained growth since our inception in 1989 and our franchisees have received a raft of awards for their high quality business practices. In 2015 Lee Eaton, owner of Signs Express (Manchester) won the coveted Franchisee of the Year Award from the British Franchise Association – the regulatory body for franchising in the UK.
Whether you are looking to start a new business, buy a business or re-brand a sign company to become Signs Express, we have many available areas across the UK and Ireland.
The Franchise Package
We have recently adjusted our offering, meaning we will invest our franchise fee into any sale of a Greenfield or Premiumfield site. This offers you a massive £20k saving on our previous offering.

Franchisee capital requirement: £30,000

The Profit Potential
A number of our franchisees have invoiced over £5m since inception, with well-established franchisees turning over £1m a year. Over the years we have found many of our franchisees expanding their business and some opting to buy their own premises as part of long term financial planning.
