Illuminated Signs

Illuminated Signs

Illuminated signs offer a fantastic return on your investment in signage because they are constantly visible.

One of the issues with non illuminated signage is that it is only in use in daylight.

During the winter months, having an illuminated sign can result in your signs being seen by twice as many people.

Illuminated signs portray the image of a professional and reputable company.

Which is why so many successful brands put them to good use.

Illuminated signs…

 

you really are spoilt when it comes to how you are able to illuminate your signage.

It’s possible to illuminate signs from above, below and within the sign itself.

For all of the illuminated signs that we fabricate, we only use LED bulbs, rather than traditional fluorescent tubes.

LED’s last up to ten times longer meaning that your maintenance costs are reduced.

Also, they require up to 80% less electricity to run, adding to your saving.

As with all of our larger scale signage projects, we are happy to come and visit you for a free pre-project site survey.

This is to assess what type of illuminated signage will work best for your needs.

As part of our Visible Quality Guarantee, the structural work of our illuminated signs is guaranteed by us personally for 4 years.

To see our full range of illuminated signs keep scrolling to view them in more detail…

 

Flex face signs…

These signs are ideal for being produced at a large size, often used for branding large warehouses.

A printed stretch banner is mounted into an aluminium box which houses the LED lighting to illuminate the sign from within.

The box itself can be manufactured at varying depths to suit the location it is being fitted at.

One of the benefits of this type of sign is that when an LED bulb needs replacing, the printed stretch banner can be unclipped from its box.

Meaning that the bulbs that require attention can be replaced without having to remove the sign from the building.

Another benefit of flex face signs is that it is possible to have your design appear differently between day and night.

Sections of the printed stretch banner can be multi-layered so that they stop the light from showing through at night.

This is useful if your design has a dark background but light text.

The background can be manufactured from multiple layers so that it will be visible during the day but not visible at night.

In terms of design, we offer a free artwork design service with every flex face sign project as part of our Visible Quality Guarantee.

The same guarantee ensures that your flex face sign will keep your brand visible for at least 4 years.

As with all of the permanent signage that we offer, a professional fitting service is available.

Along with meeting any accreditations you may require including IPAF or Safe Contractor for example.

Take a look at your other options for illuminated signage below…

 

.

 

Halo signage…

 

This is one of the most eye-catching options available for illuminated signage.

Given it’s name by the lighting effect that it creates, the structure of your design remains opaque…

…whilst the LED lighting shines behind it lighting the perimeter of the sign.

Providing a subtle and professional look, your design can be manufactured from a range of materials…

…including MDF, acrylic, stainless steel, aluminium or aluminium composite to name a few.

This means that your halo signage can be produced in a wide range of colours.

We can match pantone/CMYK/RGB colours if you have brand guidelines that need to be adhered to.

Halo signs can be mounted to many different materials, including directly onto walls or aluminium sign trays to add a further dimension to your signage.

The sign itself is positioned on “locators” which stands the structure of the sign away from the material it is mounted to in order to let the light out from behind the sign itself.

We have professional sign fitters that ensure your sign is installed with minimal disruption.

If you have any questions about halo signage, feel free to get in touch with us…

Face illuminated signs…

 

Face lit letters are an ideal signage solution for a retail business where it is imperative to be able to catch the attention of potential customers.

LED lightbulbs are positioned within each letter or section of the sign.

Housed in an aluminium or steel structure, they can be formed to any shape and size including varying depths.

The face of the letters is manufactured from a translucent material in order to let the light show through.

This can be achieved with a wide variety of colours and light strength.

Furthermore, the letters or each section of the sign can be different colours, a beneift of using aluminium or steel for the structure of the sign

For ultimate visibility, this type of illuminated sign can be used internally or externally

…as well as being able to be mounted onto walls, cladding or sign trays.

The letters or individual sections of the sign can be mounted flat to these materials or positioned to stand away from them.

If you’re unsure of exactly what type of illuminated signage you need

…get in touch with us to organise a free, pre-project site survey so that we can professionally assess your exact requirements.

Lightboxes…

 

Lightboxes work extremely well when positioned as hanging signs on a high street…

…because they attract the attention of passing drivers and pedestrians.

These signs can be produced in a wide range of colours, sizes and shapes.

As well as having varying options of where the light switch is positioned for the sign.

If you don’t have a design in mind for your illuminated sign then don’t worry…

…we offer a free artwork design service with every sign project.

To find out more about how the process of creating your lightbox works, keep reading…

 

 

Step 1: Your needs

Firstly, Regardless of how you choose to make contact with us, whether it is via email, telephone, social media or at our premises in Telford, Shropshire, we seek to fully understand your requirements.

Accordingly, a brief period of consultation is required for any project to ensure it will be successful and that you will be completely satisfied.

We’ll also inquire as to the timescale in which your project needs to be completed, so that we can aim to meet your deadline.

Signs

Since our sign range is so diverse and bespoke, this is the most important step to take and for large signage projects we always suggest a site survey is undertaken by our sign makers.

Therefore allowing us to take accurate measurements, ascertain health and safety requirements and ensure that we are manufacturing your signs just how you need them.

For smaller signage projects or for where fitting isn’t required, we will ask how long you would like your signs to last and whether they are for interior or exterior use, this allows us to suggest the best type of material for your project.

Additionally, where your signage is being positioned must also be considered in order to choose appropriate dimensions and make your signs visible.

Vehicle Graphics

Firstly, we must ascertain the make and model of vehicle that you have. 

Providing the year of the vehicle also allows us to pinpoint the exact body shape that we will be working with and the scope of the design that can be applied.

At this point we attempt to gain an understanding of what type of vehicle graphics you are looking for, for example, standard signwriting or wrapping.

Step 2: Your quotation

Secondly, once we have a good understanding of the size/structure of your signs or the make/model of your vehicle along with the type of design then we can calculate a quotation.

Then, upon receiving your quotation, you’ll be made aware of any deposit (if any) that we need to secure from you before works begins on designing your signage or vehicle graphics. 

Step 3: Your design

Design is a key part of our visible quality service, if you have an exact design already or just a broad idea, it is no issue.

Our free design service means that we can produce a proof (an image of how your sign or vehicle signwriting will look) based on any existing design work that you can supply (completed design, logo, text or just a colour scheme) and then send it to you so that it can be altered until you are completely satisfied with it.

This stage of the process is often conducted via email so that it is easy to keep an audit trail of the alterations made. 

We never move onto the next step of the process without ensuring that you are happy with your design.

Step 4: Your appointment

Subsequently, we then begin to manufacture your signs or vehicle graphics before liaising with you to set a convenient time for your project to be completed.

This will either involve fitting signs or vehicle graphics at your location, booking your vehicle in to be driven to our premises in Telford, Shropshire or giving an estimate of delivery time of your signs.

If you are collecting your signs then you’ll be notified they are ready for collection once they have been manufactured.

Step 5: Your project

Finally, once your signage or vehicle graphics project has been completed, we always ensure that you are completely satisfied with the outcome.

Significantly, in line with our Visible Quality Guarantee, all of our vehicle graphics and permanent signage projects are guaranteed for 4 years*.

Previous Project: Signage in Dudley, West Midlands…

 

We were thrilled to be asked by the Fire Brigades Union recently to install new signage and window graphics for their premises in Dudley.

Our design team worked with the Fire Brigades Union to create a clean and simple design that helped to give their meeting rooms the privacy required, by utilising window frosting.

Once the final artwork was agreed for the shopfront, our certified signwriters installed both the sign and window graphics on an agreed date, within a few hours.

As part of our Visible Quality Guarantee, the sign we installed is now guaranteed for 4 years, by only using the highest grade materials for this shopfront signage on Dudley high street.

We thoroughly enjoyed being part of this project and were particularly pleased that Andrew from the Fire Brigades Union was happy with the end result!

If you’d like our support with a signage or window graphics project in Dudley or the wider West Midlands, get in touch, we will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Thank you Fire Brigades Union for choosing us as your sign company in Dudley!

Posted signs...

Posted signs are a fantastic tool for displaying directional information or promotional offers to your visitors or potential customers.

Post mounted signs are also ideal for identifying businesses on roadsides, industrial estates and business parks.

Panel signs can be installed at any height to avoid obstructions such as fences or foliage...

...just like the project pictured to the left that we completed recently in the West Midlands.

Posted signage can be used for directional or mapping purposes in car parks, schools and industrial sites.

For these purposes, panels can be mounted both sides of the posts so the sign is visible from both sides.

Custom or triangular posted signs can be designed so that your message can be viewed from multiple directions as well.

These durable outdoor business signs are designed to endure extreme weather conditions...

...whilst being designed to a custom shape or with eye-catching graphics to create stand out signage.

Anti-graffiti vinyl material can be utilised to ensure an even longer lasting posted sign.

Panels can also be illuminated with downlights, LED backlighting or ground fixed spot lights to ensure your posted signs can be seen at all times.

Our sign writers are here to ensure your signage meets your exact requirements and results in a fantastic return on your investment.

If you're unsure as to exactly what type of posted signs you need, we're more than happy to come and visit you for a free, pre-project site survey.

 

Sign letters...

Cut metal sign lettering is fixed using stand-off brackets so that the lettering sits away from the surface it is attached to.

This is available in a range of materials, most commonly aluminium, bronze and brass.

Cut acrylic plastic sign letters are attached in the same way, however a wider range of colours are available with this medium.

For internal use, we can use a high-tack adhesive to attach acrylic letters of varying depths to a multitude of surfaces.

Our sign makers fit sign letters across the West Midlands.

Where required will conduct a pre-project site survey to ensure a successful sign lettering project.

We can also arrange for sign letters to be fit nationwide.

Startling signage stats...

Signage and vehicle graphics are hugely overlooked in terms of their ability to advertise your business.

Not just a method of brand awareness, signs and vehicle signwriting are proven methods to drive an incremental financial benefit to your bottom line.

During a recent survey undertaken by FedEx (credit: www.fedex.com)....

...some of the findings were nothing short of eye-opening.

- 67% of the consumers surveyed said they had purchased a product or service because a sign caught their eye.

- 60% of businesses reported that changing the design or enhancing the visibility of their signage had a positive impact on sales, number of transactions and profits, with an average increase of 10%.

- Over 50% of survey respondents indicated that poor/cheap signage deters them from entering a place of business.

Pavement signs...

We offer a wide range of custom A-Boards and A-Frames.

Each can be personalised with your design using either posters or vinyl.

Chalkboard pavement signs are ideal to enable your marketing message to be updated.

For every size of budget, we offer pavement signs to suit.

The best pavement signs for smaller budgets are A-Boards or A-Frames, these can be printed directly onto with your design or hold paper posters behind perspex.

A-Boards are lightweight making them easy to maneuver in and out of premises at opening and closing times.

A-Frames fold flat taking up less storage space.

Choosing the most cost-effective and popular pavement sign is our recommendation...

...swinger pavement signs have a heavy duty base and have a hanging board that withstands windy conditions.

The additional weight that a swinger pavement sign has compared to an A-Frame, helps to make it more secure and durable.

Some swinger signs have a fillable base, allowing water or sand to be poured in when in use, or removed when needing to transport the sign. 

Hanging signs...

Whilst offering a nationwide delivery service, we have a team of sign fitters who install hanging signs in Telford, Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury and the rest of the West Midlands.

By using a wide range of fixtures and fittings, we offer hanging signs for both interior and exterior use.

Our sign makers manufacture a whole range of hanging signs. in lots of different materials.

The panels can be made in solid timber for example oak, red cedar or fir.

As well as fibreglass, aluminium, oak framed aluminium composite or flat and moulded PVC panels.

The brackets can be manufactured from timber, steel or wrought iron.

For the ultimate level of visiblity for your business, our range of illuminated hanging signage is the ideal solution.
