Signage and Graphics

  • Why are sign holders like the BBC?

    sign holders help entertain, inform and educate - like the BBCWhen it was founded the BBC had a mission to ‘entertain, educate and inform’ – and you could describe the function of sign holders as the same (or at least the signs they contain).

    Sign holders are ideal for making sure your essential information is seen by your customers – that is why they come in different sizes and different styles. Hung, wall mounted or freestanding , they can be located on counters & shelves or hung from walls and ceilings – use them to guide the buying decision throughout the store. Manufactured from robust acrylic or styrene, they are (to coin a phrase) cheap as chips so there is no excuse for not having a huge stack in store, ready to support any display, marketing campaign, sale event or new product launch.

    When we talk about signs we include posters, pricing information, branding and general information. Increasingly the look of these posters is important: the days of handwritten notices blu-tacked around the store are gone (although we can all think of examples in even the smartest of retailers). Print is becoming more cost effective whether from a laptop printer or a professional printer and sign holders will make sure the print stays at its best for longer, withstanding the knocks of day-to-day retail. And there lots of different sign holders to suit the retail environment – low cost styrene sign holders for FMGC locations to traditional framed printer holders and snap frames for other locations.

    Take a stroll around your retail empire and see how well or poorly you communicate with customers. From window to cash desk, you’re communication skills will create loyalty, build brand and maximise spend. Take your audit today and see how you close you get to those invaluable BBC principles – to entertain, educate and inform your customers and visitors.

  • Wrights Plastics GPX at Sign and Digital UK

    We’ve joined our recently acquired Mid West Displays at this year’s Sign and Digital UK.

    Hosted at the NEC Birmingham on April 19th- 21st, Sign and Digital UK  is the only exhibition in the print and sign sector to showcase such a wide range of the latest and most innovative products and services.  It attracts around 70,000 visitors and is an established date in the sector calendar.

    Mid West Displays are seasoned exhibitors but this year saw them put together perhaps their best ever stand – stylish and choc full of their bestselling ranges of window and interior display panels as well as more recent product ranges such as the Puzzle range. Their multi-media panels also featured prominently – clever ways to show dynamic content instore and in windows. Karen, David, Michelle and the rest of the team dealt with the many enquiries on the first day and there was an opportunity to catch up with long standing clients and establish some new business relationships with retailers, visual merchandisers, brand specialists and many others who attend the show.

    We took some space on the stand and had an opportunity to feature some LEDMAG illuminated shelf systems, bespoke display plinths some off the shelf products from the GPX range.

    More about Sign and Digital UK

    Sign and Digital UK features leading suppliers promoting wide format printers, sign & print consumables, display systems and soft signage and lots more. The exhibition features many new product launches and the chance to be the first to see the latest product launches, product demonstrations, free seminars and workshops in the seminar theatres plus Software Workshops from Adobe, Corel and SignLab.

  • Vehicle wraps for Wrights GPX fleet

    latest vehicle wraps The ideal vehicle to promote our van wraps service

    Checkout the vehicle wraps on the Wrights Plastics GPX fleet.  Like the plumber with the dripping taps, we finally got around to applying our own specialist vehicle wraps skills to our own vans.

    We have a dedicated graphic and signage team at our West Bromwich base and are used to making and fitting vehicle wraps for transport big and small. We guess the fact that they are so busy is the reason why we took a while to warp our own vans. But we are pleased with the results. Applying lettering to PVC curtains is a tricky operation so we are pleased with how effective the sides look – giving us a chance to promote both the www.gpxgroup.com website (selling off-the-shelf point of sale and retail display stands etc) and www.wrightsplastics.co.uk our bespoke retail display design, manufacture and installation arm that works with big High Street brands such as M&S and Coral.

    We’ve listed some of our manufacturing services on the rear of the van so anybody who gets stuck behind us on the M6 (it has happened from time-to-time!) will be fully informed.

    We’ve a fleet of vans that deliver across the region to our customer base so we thought they would be a great ‘vehicle’ to promote our services etc.  You can see from some of the pictures that the vans are in regular use and not immune to the grime and dirt of everyday use.

    Vehicle Wraps from Wrights Plastics GPX

    We have a dedicated graphics department who have a wide experience of designing, printing and applying vehicle wraps, vehicle vinyls and decals. Our investment in start-of-the-art printers and software as well as an experienced team means we can offer a great value service to create eye-catching, value-adding vehicle wraps.

    So next time you are travelling on the highways and byeways of the nation and you pass one of the vans, give us a wave!

  • Wrights Plastics complete first store fit outs

    Interior of Shebang Network's Daventry shopAfter decades of manufacturing and supplying bespoke and off-the-shelf retail display solutions, we achieved an important milestone recently when we completed our first complete store fit out.

    Our client Shebang has over 20 years experience in the mobile phone industry covering all aspects of mobile phone sales and distribution and are the third largest independent mobile phone retail chain in the UK. They decided to continue to challenge the sector’s largest retailers by establishing a network of shops. With tight budgets and fast turnarounds required, Shebang asked Wrights Plastics for help. We developed a flexible and cost-effective solution that enabled us to complete store fit outs in just hours, not days.

    Flexible cost-effective display solution

    Modular POD unit used as till pointBudgets were tight, deadlines short so we developed a flexible system display solution that could easily be adapted for each store, regardless of its layout. At the heart was a modular pod system. The lightweight pods are placed exactly where they are needed. A single pod can be used as a till point. Link two pods to create a sales desk. Three pods make an eye-catching display unit. They can easily incorporate any branding or promotional print. There is no need for specialist installation or electrics; if power is needed simply position close to a power socket – it really is a case of plug-in and go!

    The system meant that a complete fit out can be completed in hours, not days. We have completed five shop fits for Shebang to date, and hope to complete many more in the near future.

     Just add low cost off the shelf retail display

    Budgets go even further through the use of our great value off-the-shelf display and point-of-sale items. For the completion of the Shebang stores, this included our illuminated display cabinets, mobile phone cradles, motorised display units and slatwall shelving and poster holders. Our in-house graphics team were able to create signage and branding including header boxes and external signage: a one-stop solution that saved time, money and stress for the client.

  • Our latest design is no yolk

    TableAlthough we are posting this on 1st April, our latest design really is no April Fool yolk - sorry joke. In fact here at Wrights GPX we created this design for our clients The Insert House to create an eye-catching table for one of their meeting rooms. It gave a whole new meaning to the term 'breakfast table'

    Table top was lasered from a layer of 10mm & a layer of 5mm acrylic, egg was digitally printed on the reverse of the 5mm panel and fixed on top of the 10mm panel.

    Of course the client was really eggs-cited and we hope that nobody poaches the idea! Let us know what you think.
