3-way Fingerpost


During our recent Open Days, it gave us a good excuse to take some photographs of our signs in and around the premises. We’ve updated our signs outside, by creating a “sign village” showing different types of signs, including Infocurve, Lynester Noticeboards, Post & Panel, BigBox, EcoVision Post & Panel and our Fingerposts (as above photograph).  You can see some of the others on our Flickr Gallery

We also hosted a very successful meeting for one of our customers who were able to utilise the premises for their meeting and receive product training at the same time.


If you would like to use our facilities to host a meeting, or see some of the examples of work we can manufacture and supply, please feel free to pop down.

This video clip shows our Post & Panel system with an overhead trough light, using LED’s powered by our Solar Panel. This one is on a timer, but if you look at the other videos we have others that are PIR activated, both to suit your needs – let me know what you think.

We have some daylight shots of this on our Flickr gallery, or contact our sales office for more information

Signscape Open Day signs

 A big thankyou to all those that made it for our two Open Days this year; hope you all enjoyed it and found it worthwhile. It was great to see so many faces over the two days. I was also really pleased with all the staff and friends that helped make the days such a great success. We’ve put an area of our car park to show some of our range of signs and how they can be used differently.

If you didn’t make either of the two days, not to worry, you would be more than welcome any time.


The above photo shows our Solar Powered Post & Panel (right) with our single legged sign (left). We will also be posting some of these images at night shortly, together with putting some updates on our Flickr gallery

Ready for our open days

Thursday, September 10th, 2009


  I think we’re just about ready for the open day now    

really looking forward to it and seeing so many people

that we haven’t seen for a while. We’re just about

ready (I think), couple more jobs and then a quick

tidy up on Monday morning, ready to see everyone

Tuesday. Hope you can make it, but if you can’t make

it on either 15th or 16th September, you are always

welcome any time. We are showing some new and

old products, together with some revamped ones;

so there should be something for everyone. Ann and

Sue are organising all the food – which I’m looking

forwared to already.

“Designing the ultimate wayfinding typeface”

Friday, September 4th, 2009






I came across this article written by Ralf Hermann a while ago and have been following the responses from followers across Europe. Ralf has carried out extensive research into the way we see and take in information, particularly in Road signs, but many of the principles apply to typical wayfinding work for hospitals, Universities etc.


We’re often asked to help on finding the correct size of sign structure for a particular project and unfortunately some sign companies don’t always think of who their “target audience” is for reading the signs. What are the lighting levels light, what are the practical viewing distances – does it have to be in keeping with the architecture of the building, or in stark contrast.


If you get five minutes to look at this article in full by clicking here, it is well worth the read. I love nothing better than seeing a well signed premises or outdoor space that comforts and informs the visitor {I think I might be a bit of a sign geek at heart!}
