Hooper Signs We've been doing it over 50 years!

St Wilfrid’s RCVA Primary School

St. Wilfrid’s RCVA Primary School, Blyth recently changes it’s name and want to create an impact in the community. The school had previously operated with no signs / identity. We were first contacted just before the school summer holidays to design, create and install a full signage make over.

The entrance to the school is marked with an aluminium tray sign mounted between square posts. The graphics and design were applied in vinyl. To try and keep a theme running between all St. Wilfrid’s signs we added their school crest as a watermark in the background, to add interest.

External signage was added to make the entrances clearer. These were made from 5mm clear acrylic with the graphics applied to the rear of the panel. This creates a crisp high gloss finished sign. It also adds an element of protection to the graphics as they are behind the clear acrylic.

The main school entrance had 3 floor to ceiling glass panels which needed to have some form of manifestation on. Not only does this give an opportunity to add some interest in the panels, it is required for health and safety purposes to prevent people walking into the glazing.

Door and wall directional signage was create using the clear acrylic option. Again we added the crest watermark and kept the design uniform through out. As these signs are light weight, we opted to secure them with strong adhesive bonding tape to remove the need for visible fixings.
