Posted by: Alex on: 03/08/2017

Foamex puzzle pieces

At Carrick Signs, we recently had the opportunity to supply some creative jigsaw signage to Global Campaign for Education (GCE) UK. This non-governmental organisation is part of an international coalition working to promote children's and adult education through research and advocacy.

Global Campaign for Education UK recently held an event at the UK parliament to raise awareness for children missing out on education throughout the world and had contacted us in order to provide some signage to further illustrate the message.

Spot Printed Perspex

printed perspex

Sometimes, printing on foamex or foamcore just won’t cut it. If you’re looking for a print or a sign that’s going to catch the eye of any passer-by, a Perspex or acrylic print is the way to go.  

Our flatbed printers have the ability to print white in specified locations, we call this spot white, partly because of the way we set up the image to tell the printer to use the white ink. Without the white ink, colours printed on a clear surface would look more like a stain glass window than a sharp and solid print. Being able ...

acrylic panels with polished edges

We are welcoming on board two brand new acrylic edge polishers. The new diamond polisher and flame polisher will help us accomplish larger acrylic perspex orders with polished edges faster. We highly recommend ordering your clear perspex panels with polished edges to achieve truly outstanding crystal-like effect.

Our new diamond polisher will be mainly used for quick edge polishing of straight edges. The flame polisher will support the diamond polisher in the case of more bespoke acrylic signs where the surface is not straight like rounded corners and acrylic cut to any bespoke shape.

On this occasion we would like to welcome ...

Superfast turnaround has been proudly delivered in time for the Saturday match. All this was achievable thanks to the commitment of all of our print production staff as well as our fitting team. Our colleagues were applying the graphics in freezing weather conditions and dealing with quite difficult access ...

Redbull Soapbox Signage

Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull.

In July 2013 we were approached by a company who were interested in having correx, PVC mesh banner, floor graphics, cut correx shapes and  self-adhesive vinyl signage for the RedBull Soap Box event held this year in London city centre and was televised on Channel 5. Instantly we knew our prices would need to be keen, our turn around fast and most definitely our print ...
