What's the difference between vehicle graphics, vehicle livery and vehicle wrapping?
Vehicle graphics and vehicle livery are the general terms used to describe the application of vinyl graphics to any type of vehicle from cars and vans right through to lorries or motorcycles. We have also applied graphics to buses, boats and even an aeroplane in the past. The graphics can be as simple as text lettering or can include photographs, company logos, tonal fades and even reflective or conspicuity markings. Visit the vehicle graphics page to find out more and see examples.

Why do I need graphics to promote my business?
Signs are the most effective inexpensive form of advertising, promoting your business 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Signs are the first point of communication between you and your customers/visitors. And from this, signs are the first impressions people receive of you and your business. Signs are like the clothing of a business – we often notice them when they are missing.
Many people will admit to judging a business from the state of their signage. Signs also provide information and health and safety signs are a mandatory requirement.

We can accept artwork / logos / photographs in most formats but prefer to work with the following: Plt. Eps. Pdf. Tiff. Jpg. AI or PSD files.

Do I need planning permission?
A good general rule is it is better to be safe than sorry so seek out you local council planning department PRIOR to going to any expense ! As a general rule of thumb most if not all fixed signs will need planning permission however if you are replacing like for like signs already in existence you may not need to get permission . For most portable signs you will generally not need permission however it is best to check first (we do not act in any way regarding planning permission however we do have associate contacts we can put you in touch with).
