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. 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.

Gardner Flying High With Signworld Group

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Gardner Aerospace is one of the UK’s largest and best performing aerospace component manufacturers.

With revenues of circa  $100m, over 700 employees, and eight manufacturing sites, Gardner is of the size required to be at the forefront of the accelerating trend in the aerospace manufacturing sector towards the establishment of fewer, larger suppliers, who are  able to work in close partnership with their customers and deliver the  leveraged benefits of scale.

With over 30,000 square foot of brand new production facilities, sited in Manor Lane, Hawarden, Gardner approached Signworld group, Chester, with a simple brief;

‘We require large corporate signage to boast our location opposite one of our largest clients – Airbus UK.’

Signworld’s design team drafted suggested signage proposals, and a specification was agreed comprising of 1500mm high individual CNC machined 3mm thick aluminium letters, finished in Gardner’s corporate colours.  This was illuminated via a powder coated trough light – totalling 16,400mm in length!

All works were manufactured, fitted and signed off ahead of schedule, using specialist access equipment operated by one of Signworld’s PASMA certified installation crews.
