Heritage external building signage

External structural signage is vital. We’ve got experience working with building owners, operators and local authorities to ensure your heritage signage is not only visually appealing but also compliant with whatever requirements you specify. Whether that relates to the size of the signage, the colour temperature or the specified lumens, we can supply the information you need.

Heritage statement lighting

Statement lighting has become a vital string to the heritage sector’s bow as clients have realised that you get a lot of impact for your investment, and it can really help you wo3w your visitors and make sure your venue stands out from the crowd. Our reputation as a leading signmaker in the museum sector helps us know exactly how to hit the mark with your project briefs.

Museum selfie lights

Who wouldn’t want their customers to do their marketing for them right?!

We’ll work to design and produce your museum selfie lights to make sure your customers help you promote your own venue.

Museum and heritage signage – it’s all in the detail

Our Retail, Fascia, and Shop Signs are crafted with the utmost attention to detail. Using premium materials, we ensure each sign is designed to not only attract attention but also endure the elements. Your sign is custom-engineered from the initial sketch to the final installation, reflecting the unique identity of your brand.

Museum signage craftmanship

All of our signage is made to the highest standards using materials that are robust and built-to-last. Whether that’s the powdercoated steel trays, the CE-rated transformers or the Italian glass that’s used for real neon signage. You can trust us that it’s well made to the core.

Environmentally friendly signage

We care as deeply about our environment as your clients and visitors. Whether that’s in how we manage our supply chain, how we dispose of unwanted materials or the components we choose for their energy efficiency. We work with LEDs, Fairground Lights, Lightboxes and Neon, so can advise on the pros and cons of all options.

Your signage, your way.

We can design and produce your fitout lighting from a detailed specification or just an initial concept. We work across the heritage sectors with clients of varying styles and who are focussed on different aspects of the design – whether that’s the aesthetics, the cost-efficiency or the technicalities. We’ll help solve your problems and bring your museum signage to life.
