Step by step installation guide.



The Hanging Sign is designed to display your own branding and messages, so be sure to have yours applied before installing the sign. To find out how to add a vinyl decal, or find a sign-writer in your local area, take a look at our dedicated blog post here.

Once it's ready to install on your wall or ceiling, screw the sex bolt through the shackle to connect each of the wires through the holes in the top of your Hanging sign. Use the allen key to make sure the bolts are nice and tight.

Mark out 1000mm for the center of each of the ceiling mounts. Screw each of the ceiling mounts to the ceiling with a screwdriver or powered drill. Make sure the mounts are nice and secure before proceeding to step 3.

Clip your hooks through the each of the loops on the ceiling mounts. Pull the wire coming out of the hook to get your Hanging Sign to your desired height.

Use a level to make sure it's hanging straight.

Does the Hanging Sign come with screws for mounting?

Yes, the Hanging Sign comes with screws for mounting onto a wooden surface.

Can you use magnets on the sign?

Unfortunately not. The Hanging Sign is made of aluminium, which is not a magnetic surface. For magnetic signs, take a look at our Hanging Menu Board, Countertop Sign, and the magnetic faceplate which can be fastened onto our A-Frame Sign.

Can the Hanging Sign be mounted on a tile?

Yes, you can mount the Hanging Sign to tile or brick. You will need to source the correct screws from a hardware store though, as ours aren’t designed for tile or brick. Your builder should have these handy too.

Does logo printing come with the Hanging Sign?

No, we sell our Hanging Sign as blank and don't provide a signwriting service.

How do I get the Hanging Sign branded?

Your local signwriter will be able to make and apply a vinyl adhesive to the board. We’ve put together a guide to the whole branding process here, which is well worth a read.

Can the Hanging Sign be used outside?

The Hanging sign would look great outside your storefront, however, we wouldn’t recommend installing this sign in high-wind areas as it may swing back and forth.

Can the Hanging Sign be mounted on the wall as well?

Yes, it can! You can also adjust the height it sits on the wall by using less or more of the stainless steel wire.

How long is the steel wire rope that comes with the Hanging Sign?

The wire rope that holds the sign is 157"/4000mm long. If it's too long, you can use steel wire cutters to trim this to fit your space.

What other sign options does George & Willy sell?

We also sell the Round Sign, Store Sign, and Hanging Menu Board. Take a look at our Standing Sign for something a little different too.
