Continuing the Movie Theme with Signcraft Projects



This video show-cases a very small collection of some very large printing, including hoardings around a cinema (of course!) to illustrate the varied work we do.

We have our in-house design studio, we can print high definition and very large sizes and we also install, erect or otherwise fix in place any monoliths, banners, lighting requirements and so much more. The projects in this collection include glass manifestations, vehicle graphics and external signage but we also do office art, wall art, display systems, flags, banners, way-finding and estate signage plus specialist traditional projects.

Maybe there'll be a sequel or trilogy... watch this space!

See our website for more about us and for your signs and signage requirements. Call us on 01895 442768

Recently, Signcraft jointly sponsored a charity event in London for Just Rifles, a support charity that provides financial help to injured British military personnel, their families and the families of soldiers killed in action.

The funds we helped to raise may provide sports equipment, replacement household items, mobility equipment or a respite break.

Art Deco Regeneration Project Brought to Life

A glorious art-deco cinema in Eltham/Kidbrooke became derelict during the first decade of the new millennium. As a Grade II listed building, English Heritage wanted to restore and preserve the external façade and Greenwich council had invited plans for regeneration.

The final plans (now complete) included a mix of public space, retail outlets and residential which occupy the site. The Cathedral Group was responsible for the development, closely watched by The Kidbrooke Kite, whose leading image features our safety enclosure hoarding, printed with a nostalgic scene of people queuing to see a movie. Detail on the hoarding included posters from films of the era, e.g. The Third Man.

The hoarding was designed to sustain a positive interest to passers-by during development, so much nicer than a depressing blank wall for months on end… almost a pity to take it down.

Signcraft specialises in all areas of Architectural/Property and AgencyDevelopment signage, excelling in the more challenging projects. We also have a very effective in-house design team. So, what can we do for you? Talk to Bob or Tony on 01895 442768.

Frimley Business Park gets a Makeover

WAYFINDING SIGNAGE

We were given the brief from our clients to produce and install a complete external signage system working with their excellent designs, the main identity monolith was constructed from folded aluminium, with built up descaled stainless steel logo and text all stove enamelled to colour; and mounted over a steel inner frame, located onto a concrete sub base.

The logo text fitted to an existing architectural feature wall was constructed in the same manner as the ones on the monolith, creating a stylish finish to this main feature.

The directory sign was the blueprint for the rest of the way finding signage throughout the estate, bringing the whole package together to brighten up and improve the general appearance of the estate, from concept to installation we ran perfectly to schedule and budget and is a great testimony to the skills of our staff.

Signcraft can be contacted via our website or call us direct: 01895 442768

First Impressions of Vacant Space



Throughout the UK the number of vacant retail units are stacking up, we have been busy designing and applying creative and attractive graphics to assist in letting the units and, just as importantly, making the shopping centres look attractive at a time when too many vacant units could create a down beat effect.

Our clients include a cross section of London-based and provincial commercial agency and surveying practices, asset managers and design houses. Since joining  us from a Pimlico-based design house, our senior designer Emma Hunt is constantly exploring new and innovative ideas to make an impact.

Our ethos has - and always will be - design led, regardless of the signage genre, hence our strapline of Innovation, Quality, Service.
