Solar Powered Sign at night

Solar Powered Noticeboard @ night Photograph of our Solar Powered Noticeboard taken at night. It is really difficult to take good photos at night, the best way to see these is in location – if you would like to come over to see any of our Ecovision units at night, just let us know – it’s dark from about 4.30pm now.

Wayfinding for business using a lectern

Lecturn 023

Lectern for wayfinding

I was recently discussing the merits of way finding with another sign-maker. The thrust of my argument was that well positioned signs can not only enhance an area, but help generate business to cash strapped areas. This is particularly relevant in our own area of North Somerset – where huge national supermarkets have opened up, potentially cutting the life blood of from towns/villages.

The town’s business’s have struck back by putting up signs encouraging shoppers to go and use the village and local shops. I’m all for supporting our local shops, but appreciate the big supermarkets make it very easy with free parking and well laid out stores. Villages can prove difficult to park in (often with over zealous parking attendants).

My friend argued that signs should be as big as possible, with the largest text in caps filling the space – a different view point from mine. I believe that the signs can be designed to have empathy with the local surroundings/architecture/heritage and still guide either tourists or shoppers to a given destination. This makes it easy for the visitor to find what they are looking for, but also gives the Local Authorities the opportunity to guide them into other areas of local interest.

The photograph shows a lectern with a map panel and a finger-post system, both systems clearly guiding the visitor to local attractions and key points.

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.
