Here are three very good reasons to visit Sign Update's stand at this year's exhibition. (Besides the fact that we love coming out from behind our computers to have a proper chat with as many of you as possible!)
We have teamed up with three companies that supply the sign and display industry, to give away some fantastic freebies. And an exhibition wouldn't be the same without freebies, although there are only so many pens and stress balls a person can own.
FK Moore will be giving away a sample of their 12mm dia wall fixings (product code WF1220SAL - see their advert for details), along with their internally threaded screw cap (F15SAT). They have recently reduced their prices dramatically and can offer these at a starting price of £1 each and 60p each respectively.
They will be distributed from the Sign Update stand, presented in a box, where a copy of their accompanying literature can also be requested by leaving contact details.
They say: "We pride ourselves for our superb quality and extensive range which we feel makes us unique in the current market."
They also stock these fittings in brass material, with either a polished brass, polished chrome or satin chrome finish.
All the wall fixings that they supply are usually readily available from their extensive stock and can be delivered on a next day service. This gives peace of mind for fitters/stockists alike. They also welcome all enquiries for bespoke items to customers' specification.
SignClip TF, Wyzrds are providing about 1,000 sample packs for distribution from the Sign Update stand (one per visitor) until they run out. These are for anyone producing twin flute or corrugated plastic signs, (brand names - "Correx" or "Twinplast" in the UK or "Coroplast", "IntePro", "Corriflute", "Corflute" and "Corriboard", overseas)
The sample pack contains two fronts and two backs, which is enough to put up a sign. It's a low cost disposable product, suitable for anyone doing temporary signage. You can press it through from the front with your thumbs because it is a self penetrating clip. Once the two points are through the twinwall plastic board, you just snap the backplate on and it's done!
The clip is designed to avoid the normal practice of boring a couple of holes through the twinflute boards with a screwdriver and using a cable tie, to strap it tightly to the pole. This primitive method usually distorts and tears the board and provides an unsatisfactory loose fixing for the sign. The SignClip successfully separates fixing from display. What are they worth? At just 20p a clip they come in bulk bags of 100 clips for £20 per bag.
Eurobond have given Sign Update 25 pots of their specialist Eurobond Surface Cleaning Wipes. These will be given to the first 25 people who reserve them by emailing us, then you can collect one at the exhibition.
