How our New Shop Front came to be Thanks to Creative Solutions

Creative Solutions of Axminster have helped create the fantastic new shop frontage for our Bridport Store. They have done a case study to show how it came about - Its well worth a read!

And if you need any Signs, Banners, Car stickers etc, we could not recommend them highly enough! We will be using them again to give our Honiton shop a face lift soon!

RKL Tools & Hardware are a traditional hardware store, with over 15 years of experience in the tool and hardware industry. They stock a huge range of products, spanning from wood screws to wardrobe fixings, light bulbs to household cleaners, and so much more

The Challenge

RKL Tools appointed Creative Solutions to manufacture and install new shop front signage for their store in Bridport, Dorset. The aim was to produce a bold, visual sign designed to attract customers and stand out in the high street. 

The Creative Solution

Using our state of the art printers at our print studio in Axminster, Devon, we printed and adhered matt laminated blue vinyl to a custom sized ACM (aluminium composite material) panel. The panels function was to provide the background of the sign you can see in the pictures.

Custom routed acrylic letters were mounted in green self-adhesive vinyl. They were applied with stand-off locators, which essentially meant the letters physically stand off several centimeters from the backboard, providing an emphatic drop-shadow effect for maximum exposure.

The signage was installed on-site by Matt and Jacob.

The end result was a professional, eye-catching store front sign. Creative Solutions were delighted to work with RKL Tools and look forward to serving them in the future.
