When Sheffield University were seeking a vibrant and colourful new look for their student union shop, they called upon the services of Signs Express (Sheffield) to help.
The University was looking to fully refurbish the shop during the summer of 2013; deadlines were tight as the shop needed to be ready for an open day and the arrival of students for the start of the new term, but the Sheffield sign makers were happy to help. The team were on hand to advise on design and selection of the most suitable vinyl graphics along with finishes and installation.
A variety of suitable matt self-adhesive vinyls were selected to complement the painted wall colours in collaboration with the designers and the shop management – over 100 metres of 1220mm wide vinyl in total. Included in the project were all of the printed coloured header panels used on top of the gondolas.
With everyone working together, the project was completed on schedule for the open day and return of the students. The result is stunning, with the vibrant graphics brightening up the shop. Stephen Battersby, Marketing and Communications Manager for the University of Sheffield Students' Union commented:
“We got Signs Express involved in our re-brand project at quite a late stage. We put some pretty big demands on them with a tight turnaround, but I'm happy to say they delivered excellent service and a great result.
Steve and his team were accommodating and professional throughout. Steve took the time to meet with us to ensure we got the right product and finish, and his installation team were friendly and efficient, putting in the hours to get the job done on time.
The end result has really done the design justice and has received much praise from our staff and students alike. The Signs Express team have really helped bring it to life.”
The Student Union Shop is open seven days a week and offers food and drink, stationery, cards, newspapers and magazines amongst many other every day essentials.
