fabricated signage: coleg llandrillo

Just thought I'd post a job we completed a few weeks back. The letters are individually cut dibond. The logo at the top is printed from a "jetsolver", mounted onto white dibond and jigsawed out. Fitted with the aid of a cherry picker.

Looks pretty cool - What material is the monolith and how did you fix the letters?

Looks really good. nice and clean design!! It's certainly a sign and a half!
:D

Would be interested in knowing how the fitting went, how many guys/girls it took.

Regards

Stephen & Carrie

Hi Stephen / Carrie
Myself and one other fitter working from a cherry picker - the whole job took less than 5 hours to fit. That includes struggling with paper templates on a pretty windy day but other wise it was quite trouble free. The logo was awkward as it got windier the higher up you went and the panel itself isn't small. I like the end result anyway - it's going into my portfolio along with the "beware of the dog" signs I usually make.
Thanks for all your comments.

Thanks Rob:
It's about 15 metres total height - not too scary but it was quite windy so the cherry picker was dancing around a lot and the templates had to be stuck down very quickly.
The Jetsolver is basically a converted Roland Hi-Fi jet - bought from AIT. We've been using it for over 3 years now and after a shaky start, getting used to all the maintenance it seemed to require, it's been a fantastic purchase. The print quality is very good at 720 dpi and the colours are vivid. The only drawback is the print speed which is about 2 running metres per hour @ 720. The inks are Solvent based using refillable cartridges.
