We'll, it's been a busy time lately, long may it last....
We have been involved in some really interesting projects, from fleet signage through to building signage. We have even built a few roadside plinth signs. We also recently supplied one of ourout of town companies with last minute trade show signs and digital pullups.
Fleet signage and vehicle signs:
Vehicle signage is always fun, from concept through to application, we always enjoy creating new ways of getting our customers' brand out there.
Fleet signage doesn't have to cost the earth and often our clients are pleasantly surprised how much bang they get for their buck.
The building signage we have completed lately is part of a nationwide brand. The signs have to be of a very high standard and also have to be produced within an ever tighting budget. We have supplied plenty of window signage using premium grade vinyls, along with internal window frosting (etching).
The external signage we have been working on has involved 3D router cut letters and ACM (aluminium composite material), as well as digitally printed adhesive images with UV clear laminates. All of these products are designed to give our clients the maximum life expectancy and they look great.
Plinth and Pole signs:
We are able to fold all our own ACM (aluminium composite material) in house. At the end of the day, this means we get a better finished product. We normally supply our plinths on fully welded aluminmium frames or galvinised steel for plinths over 4 meters high. Plinths can have anti-graffiti laminated applied, so if they are tagged it's just a case of wiping off.
Trade show signage:
We needed to get two rather urgent jobs completed for two of our customers. They were both given the task of suppling signage and branding for trade shows and conferences they had to attend. It was not too much of an issue, we worked on the designs overnight and had the PDF images ready for them to signoff by the next morning. All we had to do was order the stock, print the digital images, apply them to the different substraites, pack them up and we were done. Everything was sorted on time, on budget and both clients jobs looked very impressive
So all in all it's been busy and fun, can't wait to see what's around the corner.
Oh, and before I forget. I was told a funny story the other day from an old client. He had stopped using us due to getting a cheaper price on a job over two years back. He came to see if we would be interested in doing his work again.
The funny story was, he had been involved with three other sign companies since he stoped using us and had found the service to be substandard compared with ours. He explained to me that some of these companies didn't even do their own designs and that they farmed the work out, so whenever he needed an idea or sign, he had to wait ages to get it back. I have also since been told that it is becoming more common for companies to contract out the application side of their work. This means that they no longer do the application! I don't understand how they can guarantee their customers that the job will be faultless if they are not even doing it. I had no idea that his was becoming common practise in my trade.
The client who came back not only loved the way he could sit in our office while the designs were created with his input, he loved the fact that his job would be made by a team of professionals downstairs.
