Signworld Deliver the Goods for Huws Gray

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Huws Gray is the largest independent merchant of building materials in Wales and North West England. Established in 1990 in Anglesey, now with over 34 locations from Tywyn to Bolton, with brick specialists at Warrington with over 700 brick types and 8 million bricks in stock and to Gaerwen where the Huws Gray Kitchen and Bathroom Showroom lives.

With a fleet of delivery trucks, Huws Gray required fresh new vehicle graphics applied to all, further expanding the Huws Gray brand identity and impact. Contacting Signworld Group through ‘Wrap My Motor’, Huws Gray laid out a clear brief, using the signature green, red, yellow and white colours that have become so well known to Huws Gray. Signworld’s team of designers set to work with this simple but clear brief and produced several designs. A final design was chosen and not long after the first Huws Gray truck rolled up at the Signworld Group HQ in Broughton, Chester.

One of WrapMyMotor’s vehicle wrap specialists Mark worked tirelessly with the latest conformable vinyl’s which were digitally printed using Signworld’s Mimaki JV33-260 wide format digital printer. Mark worked the printed vinyl graphics into curved panels and deep ridges throughout the vehicle ensuring all panels we’re full covered. Not too long later the first Huws Gray truck wrap was complete and it was time for the next in-line to roll up.

As always, we’ve provided a small gallery of images so you can see the Huws Gray truck wrap under way. We’re very pleased with how the final graphics turned out, we’re sure you’ll agree also. Check out Huws Gray website here.

New Mersey Glows again with Sign Maintenance UK

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Sign Maintenance UK, part of the Signworld Group of companies, are a UK based signage manufacturing company with over 20 years of industry experience working with the largest brands from all sectors. Providing a comprehensive service to the sign industry, from sign installation, sign maintenance, sign servicing, sign repair and sign renovation, all of which is executed by the most highly qualified sign engineers within the industry.

Sign Maintenance UK, the Signworld maintenance division, were recently contacted by New Mersey Retail Park on Speke Road in Liverpool. Their large flagship totem signs were suffering from broken neon lighting and needed urgent repairs carrying out immediately. Sign Maintenance UK sent out a team of experienced and skilled PASMA and IPAF certified engineers in minus 15°C temperatures, with specialist access equipment to reach the tall signage and begin the repair and cleaning programme.

Work consisted of; immediately making safe all the damaged electrical elements, removing all giant 3D built-up letters, removing all the internal neon signage, fitting economic energy saving LED’s and refitting letters to look like new. Each letter was also recoated with protective paint. The team had to work with the large structure from within and replace all of the electrical components to ensure longer life following Sign Maintenance UK’s visit. Each letter uses LED lighting to glow from within and also to create a ‘halo’ effect around the letter. This effect helps create fantastic glowing letters that can be seen from far around while still saving energy.

As you can see from the photo’s below, the finished effect is stunning. The cool icey blue glow of the ‘New Mersey’ letters offset against the warm firey light of the ‘B&Q’ letters works wonderfully.

To see how alternative methods of signage illumination can reduce your carbon footprint, why not call us today on 01244 66 1919. You can also check out www.signmaintenanceuk.com for more information.

Signworld Proudly Present… The Wombats

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

2010 has been a fantastic year for Signworld! It’s also been an amazing year for Liverpool based trio, The Wombats.

Earlier this year Signworld where involved in the production of the single cover-art for The Wombat’s 2010 single, ‘Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)‘. The Wombats were looking to show a series of bright colours in an arrangement of a howling wolf set on a self-illuminated light-box. Liverpool based design agency Mercy put out a cry for help on Twitter for anyone who could help. Signworld responded and got right to work right away building a light-box that would allow light to shine through an opal-white face, to help the brightly coloured vinyls glow. The deadline was as tight as they come and Signworld delivered! Mercy were extremely impressed with Signworld’s results. As you can see from the photograph below, the finished article looks fantastic!

Due to the great success of the artwork for the first single, Signworld were approached for their next single ‘Techno Fan‘. Works Director at Signworld, John Biggins explains “Mercy called me with a brief on the new single. The Wombats wanted to portray the lights often seen in urban techno nightclubs. So with a few meetings and some team creative input I suggested that if we fabricated various colours of exposed Neon and placed them inside an aluminium box to keep consistency with the previous single we could really get the desired effect”. What do you guys think, look at the preview below, we think it looks breath-taking!

The new album entitled ‘The Wombat’s Proudly Present…This Modern Glitch‘, to be released early February 2011 will also feature a Signworld masterpiece (watch this space guys). Signworld have thoroughly enjoyed working with the local band and are big fans, wishing them luck with the new releases!

Be sure to check out The Wombats website for more details and for details on how to buy the single.

Signworld on BBC News at 10!

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Signworld were approached by the BBC yesterday to give their opinions on the 2010 election.

As we know Gordon Browns Labour Party intend to increase employees National Insurance contributions to support national debt created by our recent bank bailout.

As a well respected city based manufacturing company with over 10 employees Signworld were the BBC’s obvious choice to voice their opinions on how the proposed increase can effect businesses.

Signworld’s M.D. Allan Stephenson was interviewed by a London Based BBC reporter who candidly delivered his stance that our personal National Insurance contributions ensure our Schools, Hospitals, Policing and Pensions are safe, and that we have to face up to the face we have a National Debt and in his opinion whether we like it or not the clearest way of assisting the countries deficit is by a way of a National Insurance increase.

Please take a look at the snap shots below of Allan Stephenson and James Moorcroft.
