The Exeter branch of one of the country's leading sign design and manufacturing companies, Signs Express, has once again proved what wonderful partners of Exeter City Football Club they are.
Signs Express (Exeter) has been playing a leading role in bringing the club's heritage to life by producing display panels of memorabilia dating back to 1908, which are displayed around the Flybe Stand areas of the stadium. In addition to these, fans will be aware of the large photographic images reproduced into display signs in the main entrance to the ground and the various directional signs the company has given to The Grecian', which make life easier for visitors.
The latest help to the club provided by Nick and Marion Baxter-Sibley, the owners of the local Signs Express operation, took on an international flavour recently when Julian Tagg and Bruce Henderson took the pop-ups and banners provided by their sign partners to Rio de Janeiro during their ground breaking trip to investigate whether a return of the 1914 match against Brazil might be possible in 2014.
As Julian Tagg explained. "We had a range of PR shots set up and wanted to make the images as memorable as possible," he said. "Nick, Marion and their team worked extremely hard on our behalf to provide exactly the image and messages we wished to show publicly to the Brazilian and world media.
"The results were stunning and a look around our stadium shows just what input the company has had into our graphic presentation, adding great colour and design plus giving us the chance to show off our history. The fact is that we can't thank Signs Express enough and we recommend them to everybody needing displays and signage."
Nick Baxter-Sibley of Signs Express commented: 'We were delighted to be able to donate the exhibition stands for Exeter City's trip to Brazil as a very practical way continuing our support of the club."
"It was great to see them put to good use in helping spread the message through Brazil's national press and we're looking forward to see how the opportunities they discussed can be turned into reality over the next year or so'"
