Turner Signs was approached by a teacher at Hall Cross Academy – who had seen the Barnsley-based family signage business’s work on Instagram – regarding a large project to transform a school building in Doncaster.
Posting on Instagram, Turner Signs (@turnersignslimited) said, ‘The school went for a bold design to brighten up the large empty spaces and rolled this out throughout the school from numerous wall wraps to window graphics to various types of signage.’
While Turner Signs has its own in-house design department, this project was so big it called on the services of Ginger Fox Studio for the artwork – in the school’s colours of red, grey, black and white – so it could concentrate on the printing and application elements of the job. The printing and cutting stage took two days, using a Mimaki CJV150 integrated printer/cutter, with a further two days to complete the installation on-site.
Polar Grip from Drytac was used throughout the project. A polymeric self-adhesive PVC film with a unique high-bond adhesive, Polar Grip offers five years’ durability in both indoor and outdoor conditions, ideal for digitally printed graphics in high-traffic areas such as school corridors.
Curt Turner, director at Turner Signs, explained why the team chose the product, ‘We needed strong adhesive for the wall graphics installed on brickwork, so Drytac supplier Sabur Digital recommended Polar Grip. I applied a sample to the wall of our workshop as a test run and it worked really well and was really easy to install. It comes away from the silicone material well and is very forgiving when fixing errors.’
