  • How the signs are made.
    End to end, each product takes on average 4 hours to manufacture in its 6 part process.
    Part One – the raw aluminium is pressed using, in some cases, digit dies that are over 80 years old.
    Part Two – the raw aluminium is chemically cleaned in an alkali solution to remove dirt and grease, then rinsed in water before soaking in a bath of alocrom solution which prepares the surface for painting and gives corrosion protection.
    Part Three – the base coat is applied to the aluminium sign first, which is the digit colour. All paints are stoved enamel paint that are hand sprayed on to the sign – then baked for 30 minutes on racks in a 125°c oven.
    Part Four – The sign is sprayed a second time with the chosen background colour – this is then left to ‘flash off’.
    Part Five – Using a combination of thinners, the top layer of paint is removed over the digits exposing the coloured lettering from the base coat used.
    Part Six – Final bake at 125°c for 30mins and then your sign is left to cool before posting.
