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 Signs are lightweight, extremely strong and durable, do not expan and contract in variable temperatures and do not need heavy fixings.

Traditional Signwriting:
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:
