The pop-up restaurant ‘Off Piste’ is back again at Alexander’s in Skipton and we are very pleased to have been involved in bringing the space to life with fabric graphics that make for a cosy and comfortable outdoor space – true testament to the versatility of fabric as an exceptional display material. Check out the video below to see how the terrace has been transformed into an alpine retreat for the coming season
Displays are often over-looked when visual impact is low so drawing attention to your product has always been key to the success of its implementation. The iPad remains one of the most engaging and accessible forms of delivering online content and user interactivity through apps and other services. However, due to its compact dimensions, simpler or stand-alone displays run the risk of becoming lost in the crowd. Continue reading…
Looking at today’s display market we find the demand for a complete solution that can be supplied quicker, correctly, ready to use, expandable, easily updated, modern in its approach to display and can be delivered at a controlled price now and moving forward is needed. We have noticed that many clients buy fabric graphics from one source and their frame work from another. At times this can cause a variety of problems, sizing, delivery and just a basic lack of understanding from each source to the finished requirement. This does put people off using this fantastic display solution. We have recognised this and have worked very hard to iron out the issues of buying and developing the Tension Frame System (TFS) solution. Continue reading…
We were proud to be associated with producing the Point-of-Sale materials for this project:
Homeware and furniture retailer, Dunelm Group, have taken the unprecedented step of approaching Amtech, to run a DIY trial in forty of their stores.
This is a game changer for the DIY industry as consumers will now have a one stop shop for their home improvement projects. The trial also enhances the destination appeal of Dunelm, whilst they continue to integrate Kiddicare and Pausa cafes to increase their offering and improve customer experience.
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!!
