Months of highlights
News

We thought it was about time for a bit of nostalgia and a look back at some of the highlights of the first half of this year. Six spectacular achievements from Signs Express, one for each month of the year that has past.

The Great Wall of Blackburn

Most recently, at the end of July, Signs Express (Central Lancashire) built a gigantic 140-metre-long sign on one of the main routes into Blackburn! The road itself is used by over 20,000 motorists every day, so the signage that depicts a history of the town as well as Signs Express branding is a prime advertisement for the business and the rich past of the place.

As our Charity of the Year, the National Deaf Children’s Society and their planned rebrand were a huge priority for our team. The main headquarters of the charity got a complete facelift in June from Signs Express (Harlow) and, as you can see from the below photos, it looks absolutely stunning. Read more. Boaty McBoatface

Boaty McBoatface ready to take to the seasBoaty McBoatface ready to take to the seas

Possibly one of the most talked about projects of this year, Boaty McBoatface. This little yellow sub got a facelift from Signs Express (Southampton) using a special marine-grade vinyl that withstands long periods of time submersed at great depths and is resilient to the cold of the Antarctic.

An impressive tree on the walls of the galleryAn impressive tree on the walls of the gallery

An art installation with a difference and one which our franchisees couldn't wait to be involved in. York-based artist Christopher Wiles enlisted the help of Signs Express in Lincoln, Sheffield, Grimsby, Peterborough, Nottingham, Doncaster, Harrogate, Chester, Central Lancashire, Hull and York. Each of these businesses printed sheets of leaf artwork made by children in local York schools, which ended up being made into an impressive tree during an art installation at the Collection in Lincoln.

City of Culture Fire TruckCity of Culture Fire Truck

As part of a programme of events for the City of Culture 2017 event held in January, Signs Express (Hull) wrapped a fire engine for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service. The wrap was fully designed and created by the team at Hull and certainly turned some heads.

Following a hugely successful 2016, the first half of 2017 has been exceptional, with amazing projects coming out every week around the UK, new franchisees and employees joining the family and several record breakers. Here’s to the rest of 2017 being just as fabulous!
