Our Work

Signs Express helping to power the future at Glasgow Science Centre!

Hillington Park based sign makers, Signs Express, worked together with Glasgow Science Centre on a brand new interactive exhibition. ‘Powering The Future’ is the most ambitious exhibition of its kind in the UK, which focuses on the science and technology used to supply energy in the UK, highlighting key issues that society is likely to face in the not too distant future. The £1.5million project has been designed to stimulate public debate and engagement with the key issues around the energy ‘trilemma’ – security, affordability, and environment sustainability.
Signs Express had the challenging task of organising and manufacturing the impressive array of new displays and signage at their unit. Over the period of 3 weeks from initial design, there were numerous elements to the work carried out by Signs Express, including interactive display panels, exhibit interpretation boards, built up text and various other bespoke items. There were also various illuminated displays including the Entrance Sign, the Biowall Sign (an entire living wall system containing a range of different plant species) and The Dancefloor (expending energy in the form of dancing). This was the third major project that local company, Signs Express worked on with Glasgow Science Centre. Graham Casey, Signs Express (Glasgow’s) owner said “We really enjoy working with the science centre and were thrilled to be asked to help with this project. Due to the size of the project, it demanded all of the in-house equipment and utilised all of the extensive skills in the team to ensure we completed the work to the highest standard. I am extremely proud of the team and the work they delivered”. Glasgow Science Centre’s Director of Science, Dr Robin Hoyle says “The extensive package of graphics for Powering the Future featured complex artwork and tight timescales for installation. Due to the complexity and scale of the content, artwork sign-off was managed in batches by GSC and Signs Express were very accommodating of this, despite it not being the ideal situation for their production requirements. Signs Express integrated graphics with set work and exhibits, working with numerous other subcontractors, demonstrating a flexible and extremely supportive level of customer service. They delivered the project to a high standard, on-time and within budget as with previous projects that they have worked on with GSC. Signs Express always find a solution to our challenging brief, whether it be hundreds of custom cut dibond panels, suspended lightboxes, back-lit acrylic lettering, bespoke acrylic design features or frosted window graphics. All of these elements brought the finishing touch to Powering the Future and pulled together all the themes of the exhibition to give a cohesive overall design.

Called up regarding some chevrons for the back of my van and managed to get booked in on the day due to cancellation, drove down was welcomed by everyone there, they did a great job of them and even made me some signage for the sides while I was there.

The Fire Service volunteers based at Shuttleworth's Old Warden Airfield take pride in maintaining their fire appliances to the highest standard. These vehicles must not look out of place alongside Shuttleworth's historic aircraft and vehicle collection. Signs Express did an excellent job of matching the reflective stripes and signage on the door of a 30 year old Land Rover Defender Fire Appliance. It was difficult to see that the door had been refinished. The staff were friendly and they completed the work on time, I would readily recommend Signs Express.

Signs Express York recently produced and fitted graphics on my mobile catering unit. From start to finish Ian and Louise were highly professional and genuinely lovely people. The team did a great job applying the graphics and didn't mind all my children gawping at them while they did it. I have no hesitation in recommending Signs Express York.

Over the past 20 years Signs Express York have consistently provided the most professional and efficient service at every level from quotation, design, production and delivery. There simply isn't one aspect of their service that I can fault the York team on, always professional, always friendly and always on time.

We have been using signs express for a number of years now, we're only a small firm but every time we purchase new vans we never go anywhere else for a quote, and that's because of the high standard of work and customer care we get from the branch in York.
