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 Face for Getting Personal’s Manchester HQ

Monday, July 18th, 2011

The Signworld Group are no stranger to helping businesses carry their brand message across to their customers. A fantastic example of this is the recent completion of fresh new signage at the HQ of Manchester’s Getting Personal.

GettingPersonal.co.uk is an online retailer specialising in personalised and unique gift ideas. Founded in 2005, Getting Personal offer products that cannot be purchased on the high street and are always working hard to extend their range. Beginning with a personalised calendar, which today is still one of their most popular products, now growing to designing and producing many of their gifts in-house. Getting Personal take their customer suggestions very seriously and many of their products have been created as consequence.

The design, manufacture and installation was carried by utilising the in-house services from within the Signworld Group; Designers from Signworld created the concept, Metal Fabricator’s from SmartFab engineered and created the signage, and Installation Crews from Sign Maintenance UK oversaw a potential difficult fitting of all products to client satisfaction. The signage itself, which is another fine example of a bespoke package, consisted of pan-folded, powder coated white aluminum tray signs with CNC machined flat-cut letters to the face. These letters had full colour digitally printed graphics, using Signworld’s Mimaki JV3-260 digital printer, to meet with Getting Personal’s brand guidelines and an easy to digest web address was added to complete the adjacent return edge of the building front.

Along with the tray signs, Getting Personal required a sign that could be seen from the road, to help visitors find them in the bustling Manchester business park, Roundthorn Industrial Estate – which houses many respected businesses including Timpsons, Wates and AirWorld to name but a few. Signworld’s solution to the road sign requirement was a 3.5 metre, powder coated, ice white totem sign featuring 10mm thick letters bonded directly to each face of the totem. The thickness of the letters helps bring the totem sign alive. Signworld Group finished Getting Personal’s collection of signs with a clean, easy to understand directional sign, helping visitors to navigate the Getting Personal HQ.

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.
