This is a 3D sign we fitted to the wall of local company CTS PROJECTS in Warrenpoint, Newry, Co. Down recently. The raised lettering creates an eye-catching centrepiece for the room, and the black of the sign against the light colour of the wall looks both stunning and prosperous! Each letter/piece is individually fixed to the wall using standout spacers which give this shadow effect to the sign.
Thanks to CTS Projects in Newry, Co. Down who contacted us to create these signs at their head office near Warrenpoint. The sign above the workshop door comprises of raised lettering on a shiny vinyl back plate, whilst the signage on the office windows is made of an obscuring glass-etched film which is ideal for letting light in while still adding an element of privacy.
This is part of the company branding graphics we applied to Dr. Amanda’s ‘The Be Well Clinic’ in Monaghan Town this week. Along with a sandwich board for the pavement and some directional decals, this splash of colour helps advertise Amanda’s business which is close to the centre of the town. Contrasting sharply against the white of the window frame, this clear and easily ready logo was designed by Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org
We spent a couple of days in Dundalk recently working on signage for the new van in the fleet of O’Neill’s bakery! The red paintwork is a perfect background for the white text and colourful logo decals on all four sides of the new Ford vans. Instantly recognisable, shiny and brand spanking new, we completed the work whilst the vans were still in the dealership showroom so that they were ready to go immediately on collection…
The best of luck to Sean with his new traffic management business in Drogheda, Co. Louth. Above is a photo of the sign graphics we applied to the company vehicle recently. The colourful and relevant graphics are complimented with the company name, telephone number and email address…. not forgetting the ‘Find Us On Facebook’ decals! The white background works very well with this crisp and precise signage making sure the company van is very noticeable wherever the lads are working.
Two batches of signs below with very different uses. The PLEASE SWITCH OFF LIGHTS WHEN LEAVING ones were for a local factory who used them as part of an energy-saving plan by fitting one at each exit. The bottom batch were ordered by Carrickleck Hire in Kingscourt, Co. Meath for use as part of an advertising campaign. The white backgrounds of both lend themselves perfectly to creating a crisp, sharp sign that is very easy to read, uncluttered and clear…. what more could you want for from a sign! www.itsasign.ie
We spent a few hours in ‘Wendles’, Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth a few weeks ago applying the wall graphics below. These inspirational slogans and phrases add an extra dimension to the interior decor of the cafe and are a great way to fill an empty wall with something unique and interesting. The finish on these signs looks almost exactly like they’ve been hand-painted on, as is obvious from the closeup photo.
Congratulations to Moyra on the opening of her new shop ‘Fab Flowers’ on William Street, Ardee! As you can see, Moyra made a wonderful job of the decor, and our part in the process was to create the shopfront sign above the door which is designed as a seamless continuation of the crisp paintwork. The colourful graphics at each end of the sign contrast beautifully with the overall white and match in softly with the window decor. Uncluttered and easy on the eye, this sign fits in perfectly to its surroundings!
This sign in Louth Village, County Louth is made up of raised lettering on a backing plate which is fixed securely to the pebbled-dashed wall face. With a striking contrast between the red letters and the white of the building, this sign is both clearly visible from the road and easily read from a distance. This type of signage is very popular for people and organisations who know they will be spending a long time in the premises, and it certainly does add to the quality look of the front of building. The red letters that are used to manufacture these signs can be ordered in a wide range of colours and fonts so that the customer gets exactly the look they are aiming for!
This is a unique wall plaque created for ‘The Simon Communities Of Ireland’ for a recent presentation. Sturdy and durable, this custom made plaque is created from brushed aluminium, protected by a clear acrylic plate and mounted on a teak base. The anti-theft fittings are also made from lightweight aluminium and help to give the finished piece its distinguished and impressive look. The wooden base can be fitted to a brick, stone or concrete external wall by means of hidden screws.
We spent an afternoon in Carlingford, Co. Louth recently at the beautiful ‘Carlingford Design House’ fitting some shiny, polished acrylic wall plaques, and applying some vinyl wall lettering at Garrett Mallon’s workshop.
The plaques in the photos were installed using anti-vandal fitting. The graphics are behind the acrylic sheets to keep them for damage and looking in pristine condition, while the overhead lettering signs are in a colour shade chosen to blend naturally with the painted walls and not take away from the artistic workshop beneath.
This is a sign we were asked to make to advertise the services of a local architect. Alongside his contact and professional details is the logo of his architectural association. The sign is made from a durable aluminium composite material which can be easily and tidily drilled as necessary for quick wall fitting.
We were around at the ‘Dundalk People’s Centre For Information And Training’ to deliver this pavement swinger sign and fit this projecting wall sign about the entrance to their offices. With a solid base, the pavement sign won’t get blown away and is still lightweight enough to be taken in from the street at night. The wall sign is well above head height on the wall, and is a simple and cost-effective way of advertising the business to passersby.
We’ve just applied these lettering decals to the front fascia board and wall swinger sign at 23Seats in Crowe Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth. Almost as soon as the new coat of paint had dried, we applied the finishing touches to the cafe bistro with these classy transfers. They compliment the window signage logo we applied a few years ago when the bistro opened. Of particular interest is the projecting swinger sign holder which is made of twisted & wrought iron. It add a unique to to the front of the building, though easily missed by passersby for sure. In the background is the ‘Toales’ clock which is another historical feature that helps give Crowe Street its character!
This is a job we did a few weeks ago for CheapCheapBathrooms.ie on the Coes Road in Dundalk, County Louth. The white of the vinyl lettering decals stands out really well against the warm blue paintwork of the transit van, and is visually simple and easy to read which is one of the most important considerations when designing this type of vehicle signage. Applied to the van onsite, these graphics are both easy to read when in motion to act as a value for money mobile advertisement for the company!
Vehicle signage on a white Ford Transit van for Thomas in Drogheda County Louth a few days ago. As you can see, he offers a wide range of services which are promoted in both text and graphics format. Adding a logo or photos to the artwork on a van like this makes it so much more eye-catching, and striking a happy balance with the text is just as important…
With the Stapleton coat of arms as its centrepiece, this sign was created using a shiny gold vinyl film applied to a gloss finish, sturdy
aluminium composite sheet. The result is a beautiful contrast between the two colours that is both stunning in daylight and under
illumination at night. A transparent acrylic top sheet is used to protect both materials from damage and wear before the sign is fitted
This a raised letter sign we modified last week for www.acsu.ie in Drogheda. We had originally created and fitted the signage back in the early 2000’s and it was still holding up very well, but the owner asked us to make a few changes to the name and replace the company crest to give a makeover to a shopfront sign that’s been great value for money!
EEC Hardware in Balbriggan, Co. Dublin have just taken delivery of a new flatbed truck and asked us to apply signage to it! Their phone number and address are visible from all sides, and the ‘ARRO Home & Garden’ logo completes the look. The contrast between the deep blue of the truck body and the white of the letter decal makes for an easily recognisable fleet of vehicles which helps to cement their presence in north-Dublin and surrounding areas.
One of the most popular signs we produce at the moment is the pull up sign. Named so because the printed banner pulls up and out of the housing which sits on the floor, the sign is held in its vertical position using a narrow lightweight pole hidden at the back of the banner. Because this type of sign is so quick and easy to put up, it’s often used at trade shows and places where space is at a premium and a fitted sign is not necessary or practical!
We can completely design the layout, text and graphics for your pullup sign, or we can take your existing artwork and logo to create a sign that can be used again and again in an indoor environment. Before we create your banner, we supply a proof of the design exactly as it will be printed so you know exactly how the finished signage will look!
Each pull up banner comes with a carry bag, and is light enough to make it very easy to carry or transport.
Use your own photos, logos, contact details and sales message to create a value for money, low cost sign that will instantly get your message across to your customers with the minimum of effort on your part!
This is a photo of the completed Gill Tech van signage from a couple of days ago! With white and yellow lettering contrasting with the dark blue of the vehicle paintwork, the company logo serves to transform this van into an advertising mobile sign. Every vehicle signage design we produce is customised to best suit the van, car or lorry it’s to be applied to, and that’s all part of the service at www.itsAsign.ie
For companies that already have there brand logos and trademarks established, we work to best incorporate the existing artwork with the body of the vehicle. Where the company has no logos or designs they use, we are more than happy to design a logo to reflect the business or company.
We can also apply your vehicle graphics at your place of business to minimise distrubance to your schedule, and are flexible to help find a time that suits you best! To discuss what we can do for you to make YOUR vehicle stand out from the crowd, email us at email@example.com
The acrylic plaque shown above shows the different finishes that can be achieved with essentially the same design, materials and fittings! The semi-transparent design is achieved with the use of an opaque film behind the vinyl lettering, whilst the non-transparent finish is achieved by adding an aluminium sheet. Depending on the colour and finish of the background, either and both finishes can be appropriate and strike a very professional tone for somebody walking into your office for the first time. All sizes are available with this type of acrylic plaques, and we supply the special anti-theft fittings that are needed to fix the sign to the wall.

Above is a brass plaque we created for the opening ceremony for Coláiste Lú in Dundalk, County Louth, a few weeks ago. Comprising of a brass plate mounted on a solid wooden base, the black lettering you see is engraved into the brass. For your convenience, we also fit our brass plaques as part of our service.
We have fitted many of this type of sign over the last few years in the towns of Drogheda and Dundalk to name just a few. We work with our customers to both create and finalise the design exactly as our clients like it, before the wording is cut deep into the brass plate and coloured black to produce a product that will keep its pristine and classic look for many years to come. The wooden base plate is made from a hardwood to both compliment the traditional finish of the plaque and allow the plate to be fitted to wall that are less than perfectly flat.
When we take orders for our brass plaques, we always email proofs to our customers to approve, or make changes to the design. We do this so that the finished piece looks exactly how the client wants it to! If changes need to be made, we make them and create a new proof. By doing this, the customer can rest assured that we will deliver their sign plaque looking precisely how they expect it to.
We deliver all local brass, acrylic and brushed aluminium plaques ourselves, and uses DPD Couriers as needed for the rest of the country.
We were asked to replace a sign at Castletown Stores which had become a little dull and dated. The shop is in Dundalk Co Louth, and the sign was made from two pieces of diabond laid end to end. The owner chose this nice artistic font and didn’t want images on his new signage that might take away from the clarity of the black text of the name against the bright yellow background! We were happy to oblige, and his new sign was up and attracting customers within a couple of hours…..
This is an acrylic plaque with a choice of finishes. The photos on the left show the design with an etched vinyl film background which makes the sign semi transparent, and the lettering / logo given a clear border to add to the visual effect. The version on the right is the same except that we’ve add a brushed aluminium plate backing to the acrylic making it even more rigid, and giving it a non-transparent background. The machine-like finish of the aluminium produces a stainless steel effect which produces a very finished look to the plaque.
Mounting the plaque on the wall is done using the fixings shown in the photo. These satin anodized aluminium pieces are weather proof and have the anti-tampering feature of a counter-rotating thread.
The photo above is a job we did recently which involves applying new graphics to an Iveco Sunsport Leisure Home vehicle. We created the designs from photos the owner took before the original decals were removed and applied the vinyls on site. Our customer, who lives in County Louth, was delighted with the results!
Above are some of the vehicles we’ve worked on in the past few weeks! From long covered in vans like Clarke Rewinds at the top, to the smaller type of MartinaKelly.com at the bottom, we design the artwork layout of each vehicle so the customer can see exactly how their finished van will look before the job begins. The contrast of the bright body against the darker graphics in the top photos works well, as does the light coloured signs against the dark body of the crew cab in the middle photos. The signage for these three vehicles was done on site in Drogheda and Co. Louth. For quotations, call Glenn on 087 2848841
A regular customer of ours asked us to make up four large signs for his new shop in Drogheda, County Louth. Just make them ‘big and bright so everyone knows the shop is open!‘ was what he asked for, so using a bright, sunny background we added contrasting big red lettering to get the message across loud and clear. A simple job, but one that looks great!
few weeks ago we were asked to create some replacement covers for slot machines in a local amusement arcade in Clogherhead, County Louth. The old ones had got cracked and worn over the years and the owners wanted to rejuvenate the machines by adding some vibrant colours to the perspex panels, making this an usual sign making job for us! After designing the new layout, we applied the printed designs to the front covers like we would for a shop front signage job, leaving the machines with a bright new look, thus ensuring they will have a much extended working life!
While we were there, we also created a new numbered wheel for the Wheel Of Fortune game. The customer wanted different sized segments and different win amounts but still wanted to keep the original wheel. Again using a perspex panel, we designed the new wheel face and printed it as we would any other sign, laminated it and applied it to the new wheel.
With a little help from its friendly signmakers, this business now has shiny and new machines graphics ready for a busy new year!
This is a job we did on site for EEC Hardware in Balbriggan County Dublin. Once the details of the design have been decided upon, the vehicle graphics are printed and cut ready for application at the customers premises, cutting down on the amount of time the vehicle is off road and not in use.
As you can see, the colours of the text and logos have been optimised to best compliment the blue colour of the lorry meaning that this vehicle will also serve as a mobile advertisement for this company. The easier the signs are to read on a vehicle, the easier it is for your customers to write down your contact details should they need your services.
This job in Kells, County Meath, involved designing, printing and applying signage to two large windows at the front of Castle Leisure. We were asked to make the front of the premises both colourful & eye-catching, and also bring the element of privacy for those within. The sign above the door was preassembled off-site and fitted to the existing fascia board, thus hiding the old sign beneath and making for a short fitting time on site. The large scale graphics and wording are easily seen by passing traffic making it both an attractive street sign and a low maintenance permanent advertisement for the business!
Above is a job we did recently in Dundalk, Co. Louth. We were asked to fit raised lettering to the front wall of the this reataurant, raised letter double-sided signs to the existing projecting sign frame, and apply glass-etch film lettering to the front windows of the building.
The red and white 3d letters and background make for a very striking sign, whilst the window graphics are subtle enough to reinforce the brand whilst still being unintrusive enough to both let light in and entice passing customer to come inside! It’s a nice signage job that will remain prestine for many years to come.
