From traditional hand painted, wooden signs to contemporary designs manufactured from acrylic, aluminum or stainless steel, we can turn your ideas into creative signs that will keep customers coming back for years… listed below some examples of the work we can carry out for you…
Frame Based Signs:
Sign frames may seem an old-fashioned solution for shop fronts but they create a professional look with a limited budget – which explains their continued popularity.
Sign Frame is a picture frame shaped aluminium extrusion with 450 degree mitre joints at each corner. A common miss-conception is that a sign frame merely covers the main fixings used to attach the display panels to the building. As sign panels are often made from materials that will expand and contract as the temperature changes they need the space created by a Sign Frame to avoid buckling and warping. Sign Frames can also be used with lighting and 3D lettering.
Flexible Faced Signage:
Flexible Faced Signage is the easiest way to create large signage as it uses no heavy materials – in fact it uses a strong PVC material strechted over a frame. This gives you all the advantages of printing – colour, imagery, depth etc.. but for outdoor use.
Aluminium Composite Signs:
Aluminium composite signs give a modern feel to to signage. Aluminium Signs are lightweight, extremely strong and durable, do not expan and contract in variable temperatures and do not need heavy fixings. Also Aluminium signs can have cut outs that can be replaced with Perspex and illuminated. Aluminium signs can also be folded to hide any fixtures and frames that exist behind the sign.
Traditional signwriting is fast becoming a rare skill among sign manufacturers but, despite the advance in technology, there is still no alternative for the quality workmanship of traditionally hand painted signwork.
Gold leaf work is done by hand using 23¾carat. finest English gold leaf to ensure your sign looks stunning for years. Even in today’s settings gold leaf is favoured because it has an unequalled brilliance. Gold leaf will never tarnish or fade – nothing else looks like or lasts like it!
The unique quality of gold leaf enhances any business. It is extensively used in the licensed trade, by quality retailers, religious organisations, as well as in clubs and schools, particularly for honours boards.
Known as the “Rolls Royce” of signage, gold leaf signs on glass have a brilliance like none other. Worked in reverse on the back of the glass, 23¾carat loose leaf is applied using age old techinques to create a mirror bright brilliance that is unsurpassed. This style is often used for office windows for solicitors and professional businesses although I’ve also carried this type of work for house numbers, pubs and bars and commemorative commissions.
