Lots of cheer, working with Next for over twenty years….

Gee Tee Signs have been our signage contractor for over 20 years. In this time, we’ve formed an excellent, collaborative working relationship both office based and on site from procurement to delivery.

External Signs

Next are at the forefront of fashion and innovation, not only in the products they sell, but also in the design of their stores, both externally and internally. The exterior look of Next stores is constantly evolving, and we work with them to conceive the Next big thing. Current favourites include Face illuminated built up aluminium or acrylic letters, either on large flex boxes or fitted back to back through glazing and Internally illuminated fascias and projecting signs with push through acrylic letters.


Inside large Next shops, you will find other shops to look around. We manufacture and fit all these signs as well. Our portfolio of Next concessions includes Virgin Holidays, O2, Tui, Ground Coffee, Paperchase, WH Smith, Lipsy, Ginos’, Starbucks and Lavazza amongst others. Typical concession external signs include Illuminated acrylic letters, either on glazing or hung on clear acrylic panels and vinyl graphics. A host of internal signs such as illuminated hanging signs and directional are visible throughout the store.

Internal Signs

Next stores utilise a large number of interesting materials and textures, and the signs are no different. Mirror polished and blackened steel, marble and wood effects can all put in an appearance. These stylish signs take all the usual forms – hanging directional and department signs, customer collections and cash desk signs, fitting rooms graphics and picture frames, directories, podiums, totems, and lift guides. We also do all the back of house directional, instructional, legal and door signage.

Illuminated Letters

Throughout any next store you will often find a range of illuminated acrylic letters. Stairs and escalator directories are usually block acrylic, made by us in house here in Nottingham, as well as our block acrylic ‘faux neon’ ‘Hello…’ letters. Letters are mounted onto textured surfaces such as stone or slate, or can be fixed to rails hung from the ceiling. Denim department letters are internally illuminated block acrylic embedded into rusty metal letters.
