Signarama Edinburgh


We’ve worked with the team at Signarama Edinburgh, for almost 3 years now and we’re proud to have them on board. This is a special thank you and shout out to them for their hard work and continual support.

The positive words we hear about Signarama and their team are never ending. While we were on route to their base on Newington Road, even the taxi driver shared his positive experiences working with them. Aside from the being an extremely professional and enjoyable business to work with, they continually support projects they believe in.

Signarama helped our participants and visitors navigate the Lighthouse and visualise our entire programme with vinyl lettering across the entrance walls. They printed a huge amount of large format prints for all of our sandwich board signs and information boards within each exhibition – including Off Grid and THYPE. The Off Grid exhibition window display – also cut and provided by the Signarama team. For the first time this year, with their support and know-how, we had the opportunity to show the Glasgow public, that there was an international design festival taking place on their doorstep with large-scale temporary billboards and 5ft tall pillars along Mitchell Lane.

We would like to say a massive thank you to John, Mark, Bartosz and the whole team for being supportive, professional, reliable and an absolute pleasure to work with.
