3D External Weatherproof Retail Signage

Boardman Cycles commissioned smart new illuminated signs from us for their new premises in Evesham, one of the Cotswolds’ retail parks. (You might spot another of our high street logo designs for FAT FACE in the background as well.)

Graffiti Design being known for halo lit LED letters in retail signage solutions, Boardman Cycles commissioned a series of large 3D aluminium letters and logo to external elevations. Each letter is LED illuminated internally and securely mounted on the wall surface with stainless steel.

The retails signs were individually manufactured, delivered and installed by hand in-house at Graffiti Design Ltd.

GdiTRAX: Sign Lighting System of the Future

Graffiti Design and the Rise of LED

From trough lights to colour-changing bulbs, LED sign lighting is becoming ever more prevalent in signmaking. As a lighting source, LED lights are being used more and more, becoming extremely important to the signmaking industry and its customers alike. 

But demand and customer requirements are ever-evolving and accelerating in pace with the future. To give our customers added value and that crucial extra edge to their shop signage design, new systems and new techniques need to be developed and made available to the market.

At Graffiti Design, we develop high-quality components into systems that are easy to sell because of the obvious benefits enjoyed by the end user. We work tirelessly to bring the best signs we can to the market place, which means frequent innovation and regular investment in new technology, and constantly reviewing production methods and developing ideas.

A major part of our business is supplying LED-illuminated built-up letters. One question often raised by our customers is, How do we hide the wiring?

The solution? Graffiti Design suggests Gdi TRAX.

What is Gdi TRAX?

Our customers understand that technology is constantly developing, but what does this mean for them? Love-struck moths will always chase the light, but does it matter to them if the light is naked flame or white LED fairy lights?

An innovative modern system of transmitting power has been developed for LED illuminated built up letters called Gdi TRAX.

Essentially, this futuristic new solution is a cable-less way of delivering power to the individual built-up letters. 

Using a Gdi TRAX rod system, it internally feeds power to the individual letters, eliminating the need for unsightly cables between the letters, replacing them with a sleek and discrete 4mm wide stainless steel Gdi TRAX rod system. 

Consequently, there is no need for a sign tray to hide the power feed, or even for threading the cable through the fabric of the building upon which the letters are mounted.

Gdi TRAX Advantages:

    • Invisible wiring
    • Discrete
    • Cost-effective (no additional costs such as trays or drilling through walls)
    • Saves installation time
    • Can be used to finally fix built-up LED face-illuminated letters directly to glazing without the need to drill the glass.  
    • Seamless results. 

Talk about a futuristic twenty-first-century solution to a twentieth-century problem!

Big Names That Use Gdi TRAX

Although the Gdi TRAX system has not been on the market long, a number of prestigious high street names in retail and leisure have now specified this system, commissioning and installing it in a number of sites throughout the UK. 

Well-known users of this cost-efficient, attractive LED lighting system include:

TESCO

Specsavers

Superdrug

Five Guys 

Poundland

Vision Express

Card Factory

They’re not alone, either. More and more businesses are spotting the aesthetic and economic appeal of this new system. In times when it is important to stand out from the crowd, even some small independent businesses are specifying this style of sign.

How much does it cost?

Gdi TRAX is surprisingly affordable given the reduction of material cost and installation time. 

Like all bespoke projects, prices are subject to specification.

Unique Halo LED Neon Retail Signage For Unique UK Restaurant

Back in 2018, we installed a huge variety of both internal and outdoor signage for Happy Bird on Whiteladies Road, Bristol. As another brick and mortar business rather than digital brand positioning, this involved a combination of decorative LED neon lights and wall art, as well as corporate and retail signage, in order to best grab customers’ attention.

As the UK’s only free-range chicken fast restaurant, Happy Bird needed to express their eco-friendly mentality and transparency in a fun, urban style. This meant a lot of custom neon LED lights, and a sign that says ‘Cluck and Collect’.

Our design team responded with a wide range of stylised signage, including exposed neon, LED halo illuminated letters on a perforated aluminium fascia, and printed birch plywood, to name just a few.

All signs were manufactured within Graffiti Design’s factory in Sussex.

Lightbox Readograph Signage For London Cinema

Few things say “cinema!” more than a bulb-studded, six-foot-tall lightbox across a building. In sign-making, these iconic signs are called readographs. In warm white lighting with a background of black stripes on the front facade of movie theatres, light boxes just ooze old Hollywood glamour.

Over the past few decades, we’ve designed, produced and installed a wide variety of commercial cinema lightboxes throughout London. The main difference nowadays our customers tend to prefer LED lighting for their cost and energy efficiency. We recently had the pleasure of manufacturing a bespoke sign fascia for Genesis Cinema, Mile End Road, London, to advertise their latest film showings. 

Design and Manufacture of Theatre Signs

This cinema sign project included the manufacture and installation of an LED illuminated lightbox of 15 metres x 1.2 metres (including a bow-fronted section) with interchangeable clip-on acrylic letters. Each letter was CNC moulded by our expert team in Graffiti Design’s factory.

Halo Lit LED Letter Signs for Leading UK Corporation

Another project for Ashdown Business Park saw the manufacture and installation of these beautiful custom 3D signs for Jemtech, a fluid management company in need of high quality new corporate signage to adorn their new premises on the estate.

Halo Lit Letter Design and Manufacture

Featuring three 3 metre-high halo lit sign letters and logo in powder-coated aluminium, each sign was securely fixed on a stainless steel mount to Jemtech’s swish new offices and warehouse. At night, the halo effect ensures true-tone colours and visibility from far away.

Entirely manufactured within Graffiti Design factories in Sussex and fitted with white LED halo illumination (similar to backlit letters), these corporate signs know the meaning of enlightened business.

Each metal letter was crafted using a CNC router, and the rest was made by hand.
