TEMPLATES

All letters requirs a template (fixing / drilling guide) to help you position the letters correctly, we make 2 main types a simply paper layout with drill hole positions pre fixed from the design stage (which means all letters are per marked on their back when machined the reason for this is we have the drill hole positions saved on file so if a letter gets broke or stolen we can replace it without you needing to redrill new fixing holes simply pop it back on).

CARVED LETTERS

GENERAL

As well as the standard letters and built up letters we also manufacture a variety of carved 3d lettering this can range from letters with a chamfered edge to radiuses edges, we can recess or engrave parts of the letters tohighlight certain areas but themost popular would be the prismatic cut or triangle shaped letter this is where the letter is machined into a central point shown various angles ideally suited for gold leaf as it reflects the sun to make the letters standard out , this type of lettering is very popular and has been around since the 14th century so it has passed the test of time

Another favourite type of signage panel is the v-carved sign mainly used for shop fascia and projection signs, This type of sign has been very popular over the years and rightly so if done correct it is a beautiful piece of signage that will last a lifetime with virtually no maintenance the origins of this type of sign pre dates the 14th century so you know it passes the test of time

PROCESS

We take a piece typically 19mm foam and v carved or engrave into the panel to form the shape of the letters and logo, once the panel is machined it is then spray to the desired background colors, after the main colour is laid down and dried we mask of the panel leaving the machined lettering to make it stand out, the most popular colors and traditional colours would be the gloss black background with gold leaf lettering, simply nothing more beautiful than this combination which always makes people stop and admire it especially the gold leaf as it really pops in the sun light

SIGN TRAYS

BLANK SIGN TRAYS AND BOXES

One of the most common services sign companies require is for basic fabricated aluminum and dibond sign trays, we can machine the trays in component form for you to fabricate depending your budget or we can fully form the panels and leave them just ready for you to apply your graphics, whether you need them powder coated or sprayed we have the means to supply you with what you need. 

STENCIL CUT

We also supply stencil cut trays, manufactured as above with detail routered cut out of the face of the tray. We then back these areas with coloured acrylic. For illumination we can supply them with aluminium back trays or dibond back trays with fluorescent tubes or leds, This technique allows the light to come through the stencil cut areas only, making it's face illuminate in a very effective manner

For a more creative look we can make shaped trays where we cut and build up shapes to create bespoke fabricated tray systems, giving customers a totally unique product. We also mirror and replicate the process to create back to back or double-sided sign systems which can be mounted on post or projecting bracket

ENGRAVING

MECHANICAL ENGRAVING

Another populer source of revenue is the typical engraved sign, plaque or name plate a lot of our trade customers do not take this type of work on because they do not have the means to produce these items well fear no more we can do this to, we engrave a large range of different marerials from stainless steel to brass to aluminium to plastic to wood you we have engraved it at some stage

The beauty of and engrave sign is that it will never fade due to the nature of it you are remove a small amoun of material leaving a recessed area in the shape of a letter or logo this area can then be left as is showing the machined out area or colour filled with various types of paint and waxes, Simply email us your requirement and we can take it from there
