Mirrored Aluminium Flat Cut Letter Signage

We’ve just finished production of professional-looking and yet relatively simple signage for the Polish Social Centre in Bury. Mirror/Chrome flat cut letters standing off the wall always makes a good classic and elegant impression. Apart from chrome lettering clients very often ask for signs with brushed aluminium effect as well as any solid colour flat cut letters.

On this occasion the Polish Social Centre in Bury ordered the signs to improve the location visibility and recognition of the Social Centre premises in Bury Centre.   The letters can be easily affixed with screws straight to external walls (both flat or brick wall). ...

Octagonal CCTV Security Signs? Why not!

Posted by: Milosz on: 09/08/2017

aluminium security signs cut to octagonal shape

Microconnect Systems & Security has just ordered Aluminium CCTV security signs. The aluminium boards have been UV printed direct to the substrate and router-cut to octagonal shape. Also, with holes drilled for swift and easy fitting on customer's premises.

The little twist of having the signs cut to octagonal shape made the signs much more eye-catching. The overall effect definitely works very well in terms of brand promotion and recognition on the local market.

It's interesting how much bigger impact you can make with simply more interesting sign shape. For more information about MicroConnect Systems based in Whitefield please visit:
