How are signs and displays made?

Creating an effective sign or display might seem like something of a minefield but manufacturing one is actually a simpler process than you might realise. There are four main stages when it comes to getting a custom sign or display made.
Perfect your design
What are you hoping your sign or display to achieve? EW Signs has an experienced design team who can help you devise the perfect design for your sign or display. Alternatively, you can create a design yourself using a number of different formats such as Adobe Indesign, Powerpoint or CorelDraw. Once your design is agreed, it’s time to get to work on making it a reality.
Define your audience and location
The choice of materials and printing techniques for your sign or display depends on where it will be located, what its purpose is and how long it’s required to last. A permanent road sign, for instance, will have to withstand a lot more wear and tear than an internal display in a shop or a sign in a restaurant.
Choose the correct material for your needs
Signs and displays can be made from any number of materials including high-quality aluminium, Trespa, Correx boards, A Board and foam panels. The type of material you need will depend upon the type of sign you are making. For example, traffic signs need to be hard-wearing and able to withstand anything that the notorious British weather throws at them. They also need to be made from a specialist reflective material so that they are easily visible to drivers at night and can be seen in poor weather conditions.
Sit back as your sign or display is printed
Your design can then be printed to the correct dimension onto a wide range of different media. These can then be used in conjunction with your particular type of sign or display be they vehicle graphics, weatherproof outdoor event banners or snap shut/open commercial advertising. 
Let us take care of the installation 
The experienced team at EW Signs can install the sign at your premises. This could mean be a simple process of screwing a plate to the wall or installing an entire shop front fitting.
