Eurobond Adhesives were delighted to be a major sponsor of the Sign ‘Construction’ Award at this year’s British Sign Awards, held at the Athena centre in Leicester on the 8th November. The British Sign Awards are organised by the British Sign and Graphics Association (BSGA) to provide a focus on the outstanding work of UK-based sign makers and to provide public recognition to the very best. Now in their fifth year, the awards are open to every UK-based sign business and cover every aspect of the sign industry.
“Our aim in organising the awards is to highlight the quality, creativity and diverse skills of sign makers in this country and to reward the very best work of the past year.”
Over 300 top sign makers from across the country enjoyed a fantastic event hosted by former world snooker champion Steve Davis. Hundreds of sign companies submitted their entries for consideration and one entrant of each category was crowned the winner. Interplan Sign Systems were the winners of the ‘Construction’ category having submitted their innovative three metre high face illuminated lettering reading THE GATE fitted to the internal glazing panels above the main entrance to ‘The Gate’ in Newcastle. Interplan had to design a method of fixing that would ensure the lettering was close enough to the glazing to ensure there was sufficient light output to make the sign fit for purpose. A frame wasn’t possible and no mechanical fixings were permitted. Interplan’s team overcame all the challenges to produce an outstanding sign.
Eurobond’s Managing Director Simon Dearing said ‘’We are extremely proud to be sponsors of the British Sign Awards, recognising the most talented and innovative craftsmen and women in the UK sign making industry. We have been supplying high performance adhesives, adhesive tapes and other bonding solutions to sign makers throughout Europe for over three decades. We have a vast knowledge bank with which to help and advise our customers on the best and most appropriate bonding solution for their specific project’’.
