Take2 sign layout. The letters are in a Monotype Corsiva font and were used on a shop front sign. They were made from solid cast resin and measured 250mm high and 25mm thick. The letters had brass locators on the back and were supplied with a paper template for DIY fitting.
A comment from our customer at Broadwater Osteopathic Clinic. “My new sign from Arro signs is fabulous – A good price and delivered promptly. The office staff were very friendly and helpful and the sections of the frame were clearly marked – making it easy for DIY installation.”
As it happens – a sheet of instructions as to which bits to fit first and that the sign should be slid in from the end with the short screws would have been a nice touch.
The lovely lady I spoke to about installation before the sign arrived was very helpful in describing this to me verbally and we had no problems, but for the cost of a piece of paper I think you could impress customers even more and get good PR.
A brief description of our business:
The Broadwater Osteopathic Practice is one of the busiest and longest established clinics in the area. We have six osteopaths, four massage therapists and a chiropodist – so are able to after a fully comprehensive “body repair and maintenance” service to the local populace. Whilst the premises are modest all of the rooms are in full use from 8.30am to 8.00pm six days a week. It is important to us that visitors are impressed by our cleanliness and efficiency. We all know how important first impressions are, so keeping the outside of the premises inviting and attractive is important to us – and good signage is part of this. Being sited on the corner of a busy roundabout it was crucial that the sign was big enough and clear enough for passing drivers to make note of our name (the absence of capital letters was deliberate to match our “online style”).
