Signs Express (Bath) newest recruit Julia recently attended a training course run by Make It Happen.
Mark Collins, owner of Signs Express (Bath) states that ''In order to offer top quality service to our customers, our staff undergo full training, providing them with an array of knowledge on the products available to our customers.’’
The Make it Happen training course, run by Sam Armstrong, really is the icing on the cake, helping people who are new to the industry understand the products available, to supporting well established clients and companies.
The course goes through everything signage, from simple fixings, ,to the installation processes. It covers everything a sign maker needs to know about exterior signs, interior signs, shop from signs and office signs to name a few!
The course also involves a tour of the Sign Fab Uk factory, allowing a peek into the manufacturing process.
This was particularly interesting as it highlighted just how bespoke the signage industry is. Many of the products are still hand-crafted and bent manually, rather than by machines. They are also sprayed many times to create the perfect colour. This all adds to the quality of signs that are created here.
“Holding the programme at SignFab (UK) Ltd allows us to demonstrate first-hand the full processes all under one roof. This allows the delegates to see first hand why for example a built up letter has a certain cost, as we see how its been hand fabricated, with the miniature ovens and irons...'' Sam Armstrong, Director (Make it Happen)
The course also demonstrates new products to the market, enabling us to keep up to date and offer alternative products to our clients.
A new product that stood out was a biodegradable and FSC certified board, ideal for hording and advertising signs. It is completely biodegradable and can be recycled with standard household cardboard. This is ideal for many of our customers who need short term signage without the waste.
After attending the course, Julia explains that ''Sam was such a great course leader. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was inspiring and I now feel better equipped to be able to help our customers with their signage choices and requirements’’
At Signs Express (Bath) we strive to provide a service that is second to none.
