Signs Express (Peterborough) gets ‘street’ with the local youth community to help young people find their place in society.
As part of the Street Bus scheme, Signs Express (Peterborough) was contacted to quote for full colour graphics to be applied to a bus which would promote the youth scheme throughout the area. As a specialist in large format full colour print, Signs Express was well equipped to produce, laminate and apply the graphics and work alongside a gifted young designer to create the vibrant design.
The graphics needed to be applied to all sides of the vehicle. Exact measurements were required so that the graphics could be tiled to ensure that the joins were exactly on the panel joins. The bus was then covered with full colour laminated print and computer cut vinyl as well as the back being applied with one-way contra-vision film making it possible to see out but not in.
Signs Express (Peterborough) owner, Anne Hitch said: “Vehicle graphics are a great way to get noticed and an ideal method for to promote such a worth while initiative. Applying graphics to a large vehicle requires great attention to detail and patience to get it right. The process was made easier by being able to work at the council depot just up the road from our unit. This meant our team of experts were able to complete the project in just two days.”
Locality manager at Youth Access Point, Javed Ahmed commented on the work completed: “Anne and the team provided an excellent service in terms of their flexibility, expertise and generally were very friendly people to work with. In addition, the cost of vehicle graphics was competitive and also the finish was excellent. Many thanks for helping create probably the most eye-catching bus in Peterborough!”
