Lamp Post Advertising

Karen Griffin - Thursday, October 31, 2019

Do you see a lot of this type of advertising locally?  We certainly do here on the south coast.

Some are aimed at pedestrians outside busy shopping areas or schools.  Others are directed at slower moving traffic.  Usually A2 in size, they are very effective.  

Correx (a type of corregated plastic) is light enough to hang with cable ties and soft enough to punch holes in with a pair or scissors or a screw driver.  It is strong enough to survive most weather conditions.  Get the design right, and we can make them re-usable, in the same way as we do the vinyl banners.

If you do use these boards to highlight a local event, please oh please, do take them down after the event.  Not just to re-use them, but to avoid bad feeling in your

Banners in Windy Places

Karen Griffin - Wednesday, October 16, 2019

We recently had the pleasure of making many banners for the World Croquet Championships based in the South of England for the first time ever.

Banners work extremely well around sporting grounds.  The bigger sites such as Premier League football venues use electronic messaging around the pitch, but smaller clubs for cricket, football and even croquet can take advantage of local advertising in just the same way by using vinyl banners.

For the World Croquet Championships, it soon became apparent that one of the seaside venues was extremely windy and there were concerns as to how the banners would hold up during the course of the event.

The answer was mesh.  These banners are actually made from a net like mesh of plastic strands.  They can be made re-usable but they are not so durable in the re-usable front as traditional solid banners, so there is a pay off between making them a permanent fixture on a windy fence, or making them durable enough to be used over many years.  In reality, the sponsorship of a single event meant that the banners were generic with a single sponsor logo on them.

A mesh banner is no extra cost to a traditional banner and could just a great solution for many windy sites.

Caravan Security with Roof Stickers

Karen Griffin - Thursday, October 03, 2019

One thing is certain.  To the great majority of people, and many owners too, caravans all look the same.

Yes, inside they might be different, but on the outside they all come with the same manufacturers branding.  Change the number plate and most owners would need to peer closely at the etched window VIN numbers to be absolutely sure the caravan was theirs.

Yet this is exactly what happens to 1000's of caravans and motor homes every year.  The number plate is changed.  The tow bar lock is removed.  Any wheel clamp is cut off. And the van is on its way to the nearest port for re-sale.

And the results are terrible for the owner.  It is not just the cost of the caravan, because many are insured.  It is the loss of a regular trips out, the feeling of freedom, the inability to just hit the road.

For years we have been making caravan roof stickers.  These are numbers and letters 20cm high that are stuck to the roof of your caravan or motor home.  We generally use the registration number, but it can be anything really.  Black lettering on a white roof allows the road side monitoring cameras on all of our British major roads to automatically search for the letters on a roof once you report your van stolen. Using recognition technology, it doesn't rely on a human to see the letters, it is a superbly clever software package that scans the road cameras for the right details.

At just £25 per set, it is another weapon in the battle against thieves.  Would they check the roof before they drive your caravan off of your drive?

I got the vinyls on time and they were great! 
Thank you for your quick work, that was really appreciated!
