Instant guide to building fascia signs
External shop and building fascia signs are an essential part of any business brand and work to identify and mark your premises or sites to help you stand out from the crowd so that your customers can find and recognise you at a glance. At Red-Penguin in Malvern near Worcester we make custom shop signs and fascia signs that get you noticed.
What are external signs?
External signs are exactly what the name denotes; signs that are designed to be displayed externally. From large building panels to brand your premises to advertising boards and markers, external signs play an essential role in helping people recognise & find you.
Design of external signs
We are proud of our design heritage and offer a fully tailored design service. At Red-Penguin we have created eye-catching designs for many external signs and provided signs of all types and sizes to many companies & organisations throughout the UK. With our expertise and design skills you can be assured of great results.
Once we have discussed what you need and you have selected your prefered colours we will form a design and email you a colour artwork proof to show you how your external signs will look to ensure that you & your team have complete control of your branding.
Once we have carried out any final tweaks that you may need to ensure you are 100% satisfied you then approve the artwork for us and we then schedule in a convenient date for production.
Production of external signs
Our external signs are produced using various forms of sign making but mainly using contour cut or digitally printed vinyl graphics.
Each sign graphic is precision machined where required and then carefully applied to the relevant chosen substrate by hand.
Once finished each panel is cleaned and quality checked. On completion of panels your order is made ready with the relevant fixings or finishing components to complete your finshed order.
Materials for external signs
We have access to a vast range of materials to produce your sign from including Correx, Foamex & Acrylic to name but a few:
Correx – cheap and lightweight this material is a fluted plastic panel and ideal for temporary signs and event markers.
Foamex – available in various thicknesses foamex is the normal choice for a simple external sign
Acrylic – available in various thicknesses and with finishes including radius corners and polished edges acrylic is a premium substrate.
Aluminum – we use 3mm thick aluminum to produce large freestanding signs or signs that need to stand the test of time.
Application & installation of external signs
At Red-Penguin we only use high quality materials as standard and will ensure that the material we specify is suited to your application.
We can also provide external signs ready for installation with pre-drilled holes, fixings, posts and other finishing products such as frames should you require.
