As we plunge further into winter, we’re barely getting 8 hours of daylight a day. Driving to the office in the dark and then driving home again in the dark, you can begin to feel a bit like a mole.
So we decided to install one of our low profile aluminium LED lightboxes onto one of our office walls to brighten up the day and installed it with an interchangeable kedar edged, dye sublimated backlit fabric graphic, to add a splash of colour too.
Some examples of our lightboxes can be found at the Burnley FC shop where they create eye catching branding. Careful colour management was needed in this instance to ensure our graphics were in keeping with the club colours and now the lightboxes are installed, the graphics can easily be interchanged with minimal effort and cost.
With high power, low voltage and zero maintenance LED technology, our lightboxes combine low running costs with creating a huge visual impact and can be manufactured to any size.
Our easily interchangeable fabric graphics, slip easily into the channel around the perimeter of the lightbox without tools and can be changed without need for specialist installation skills, which makes them an ideal solution if you want to regularly update your high impact graphics cost effectively.
We’ve always been humbled by the work carried out by the team at St Gemma’s Hospice. They rely solely on charity and we have always helped out where we can, providing roller banner stands or replacing the odd dated car park sign with clean, new branded ones, but when we were asked to help them with replacing their branding and signage for the whole site, we were delighted to accept.
The new branding is clean and crisp with bright colours and is present throughout the hospice both inside and outside tying the whole site together. Comprising of coloured vinyl lettering, directly printed and CNC cut acrylic with V-cut and folded dibond tray signs.
The hospice is now full of colour and feels less “clinical” for patients and their visitors.
Just wanted to say thanks for the signs. They are half done and look fabulous. Becky and I have just been to have a look and we’re really pleased! And your fitters are lovely too J

Working closely with the client, the brief was to convert a stark white blank canvas to build a brand upon.
The office is home to the engineering teams and it was important to reflect the valuable expertise and innovation that the department provides to the company and its legacy; through their pioneering engineering achievements.
The graphics were a mixture of high level, large format wall graphics and directly printed foamex panels set into bespoke acrylic cylinders to simulate pipes, the artwork was fascinating, taking advantage of the clients fantastic archive of photography, including imagery of sites dating back to the early 20th century that are still in operation today.
The result has helped to give the team working in the building a sense of pride and also give a vast and understated building some real character.
Just in case you were looking out of the window watching rain drops and needed some reassurance, it’s Summer!!
To create these huge letters, towering to almost 2.5mtrs high, we firstly had to CNC cut multiple sheets of 75mm fire retardant polystyrene and bond them all together with a plywood internal structure, taking them up to a thickness of over 300mm deep. After applying a smooth Foamex face, we spray painted each letter to a cheery bright canary yellow.
Using all of these process’ contributed to creating the “biggest summer” ever!!
EFI VUTEk GS3250LX – Fully loaded production level LED printer
The innovative ink-curing technology of the EFI VUTEk GS3250LX Pro LED hybrid printer, extends the range of suitable substrates and delivers high quality print with high adhesion.
Hybrid capabilities meaning it can handle rigid and sheeted media up to 3.2m wide x any length and up to 50mm thick with reel to reel multi-roll functionality
Eight-colour plus unique multi-layer white print capability and true greyscale technology, delivers stunning Point-of-Purchase graphics with high image quality and allowing for increased applications, broadening the spectrum of possibilities.
With its production-level speeds and continuous print functionality, jobs are produced faster and more efficiently enjoying production speeds up to 60x 1.2m x 2.4m boards per hour
Virtually no VOCs, fewer consumables, lower energy consumption, and the ability to print on recycled and other heat-sensitive materials without warping or head strikes, makes it the greener printing solution.
EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro – Fully loaded high speed production level LED printer
Enjoying all of the benefits of the GS3250LX but specifically designed for high production throughput, higher volumes and shorter lead times while maintaining image quality.
The LX3 Pro has the versatility to support the widest range of media and applications, satisfying the growing industry demands for higher quality, with quicker turnaround times but also offering the ability to print on new and alternative substrates, opening doors to more unique and creative opportunities.
Featuring advanced 12 pL greyscale print technology offering greater image consistency, along with continuous print productivity with less than five seconds between boards for faster job turn around all adds up to production speeds of up to 94 1.2m x 2.4m boards per hour while still maintaining quality.
A hybrid is modified to handle heavier substrates as well as lightweight materials, but perhaps the most significant difference is its unique “narrowed” triple-head carriage, which produces an unrivalled high speed, twin knife head and a powerful router spindle.
The robust nature of the machine means it can handle greater loads and can work faster with minimal downtime and blade breakage.
These differences also ensure that when printing onto a rigid substrate such as acrylic, the finishing can be accomplished by one process and is equally capable of handling the broadest range of materials in all print finishing, signmaking, foam packaging and graphics projects.
The robust nature of the hybrid coupled with the uprated power of the routing spindle allows Trident to process rigid substrates such as wood, plastic and non-ferrous metals. Whereas, the multi-functional knife units can accurately cut the harder substrates along with thin and flexible materials such as cutting/trimming paper, vinyl, foam board, coroplast, styrene and rubber.
