When visitors first enter your school, the first interaction they have will be with your signs. It’s the first impression that can be the difference between a positive and negative experience. An old, weathered sign that is hard to read immediately puts you on the back foot.

Wayfinding is not just about signage;
it’s about connecting people with places.

It’s also extremely important to have in place a well thought out wayfinding system so that navigating your site is easy and intuitive. We can help design parkings signs, one way systems, maps and the signs that go with them so that all school visitors have a smooth journey to their destination.

Penstripe is a one-stop-shop for all your school wayfinding needs. We will design, print, deliver and install your signage and provide quality advice to ensure they last for many years to come. For other questions you may have, see our FAQs.


There are many different variations of school signage to suit style and budget. Signs for schools are different from other businesses because they need to work for children as well as adults. We create large, highly visible and easy to read signs that work for all audiences.

School entrance signs

School entrance signs are the first thing visitors will see when they arrive at your school, college or university. It is therefore extremely important that your messaging gives off a strong first impression. Our heavy-duty school entrance signs are built to stand out and to last for many years to come.

Wall Graphics

Culture and ethos is an incredibly important consideration for all schools across the UK. Reinforcing a positive school culture can have a profound effect on student engagement and one way to achieve this is by ensuring the environment is on message. Wall and window graphics can transform a space and are a great way to utilise real-estate that previously was wasted.


Maps are an important way to help students and visitors navigate the school campus. Designing a directional map for schools is a challenging task with many considerations specific to your site. Learn more about school mapping in our in-depth guide.
