Dibond Signage Installation & Bespoke Countdown Boards

When Parker Design’s client entered Lancaster city centre with an extensive drainage and improvement project, they needed to communicate to the city’s visitors that business was open as usual. Parker Design solved the problem with a number of lamp post signs and countdown boards positioned on the main roads into Lancaster.

We printed the signs onto light weight Dibond (an aluminium composite panel) and shaped radius corners for safety. The signs were printed directly onto the Dibond by our Jetrix flatbed press, in a high resolution, fine art print and spot varnished to give extra weather protection. The signs were then installed by our in-house signage installation team, using a Tamtorque system, a strong, steel clamp and clip system.

Printed Dibond Countdown Boards

As well as the Dibond signs, Parker Design came up with the idea to use 3 sided countdown boards positioned on roundabouts across the city. The countdown boards were able to countdown to when the work in the city commenced so that traffic could avoid certain areas whilst the work was being carried out.

We created a 3 sided timber frame which was self-supporting, and then added the Dibond signs to the frame on site. Once again the signs were printed at high quality on our Flatbed, directly to the substrate. We then attached an A2 lockable poster frame to the boards which would house the numbers. The numbers were printed onto a polypropylene which was strong, flexible and waterproof. A number was taken away each morning to create an accurate countdown.
