The Derry franchise was recognised as a finalist in the Sign Excellence awards organised by Signs Express head office, beating the other 75 franchisees across the UK & Ireland in the field of vehicle graphics. Judging the event were Signs & Graphics Association director Dave Catanach and industry magazine Sign Directions editor Val Hirst.

Commissioned by the electronics company who were refurbishing the simulator, Crievemore Electrics, Signs Express were delighted to offer their excellent sign making skills in order to fully wrap the exterior of the simulator in eye-catching full colour graphics.

Signs Express franchisee Richard McGonigle comments, “We have been delighted to be named as finalists in this year’s Sign Excellence Awards. To receive recognition for the second year in a row is a great achievement and testament to my experienced sign making team who tackle each project with the highest quality in mind.”

“We worked together with the designer providing advice to ensure that the overall concept of the graphics could be achieved and flow as one image. We printed the graphics in house and set about wrapping the simulator, using over 40 metres of vinyl. Its one of the most challenging jobs we have completed because of the unusual curvature shape of the nose cone.”

The graphics ensure that the simulator is an attention grabbing attraction for visitors to the attraction and displays a montage of thrill inducing activities from flying, rollercoaster’s and racing driving so the simulator can be used for a variety of experiences.

The simulator, which has been installed at Grafton Street in Dublin and was a feature at the ‘Oxegen music festival’ Ireland’s largest music festival, can be hired for events and parties.

Signs Express provides a full design, manufacture and fitting service for all forms of signs and graphics including interior and exterior signs, vehicle graphics, banners, exhibition displays and window graphics.
