End of an era… But moving forward

After more than 30 years in these premises, it is only natural to feel mixed emotions when we are packing everything up to move to our new unit.

It has taken a while to sort through all the ‘stuff’ we seem to have accumulated over that time – bits of signage work that we have kept, old van designs… Did we ever actually sign write directly to vans?

I found some clip art books that made me laugh now to look back through them and remember how we used to do artwork and design for our signs, banners and printing, not like today when everything seems to be done on computer (apart from Derek hand written signs of course!)

However, looking back, while it’s fun to remember it doesn’t move us forward, so we have been busy painting and preparing the new unit. It has been fitted out specifically to our design, so we have a lovely, bright, clean print room to accommodate our new 1600mm (over 5 foot) wide format printer. We will now have a larger, more versatile production area, enabling us to complete all types of signage and sign work and we can drive vehicles straight into this production area to apply vehicle graphics in a more controlled environment.

There a few minor downsides, one problem is that I have to share an office (albeit quite large one) with my brother! Anyone got any partitions they want to give away!

Our new unit needs a nice new sign but we have decided to remove and make use of our existing signage fittings, which will fit nicely at our new unit. Derek was tasked with removing the signs, but we are sprucing up them up and refurbishing theses signs, applying new graphics, that is all in keeping with our new branding that we started on our website.

Production shuts down at our old premises on Thursday 25th June and we re-open at Unit 19, St. Andrews Ind. Est, Sydney Road, Birmingham, B9 4QB bright and early on Monday 29th June 2015.

You are very welcome to come along and visit us in our new home and we will give you the “grand tour”!
