Let there be light
Distinctive illuminated signage is lighting up the entrance to the UK’s most famous artisan yogurt producer thanks to Signs Express (Central Lancashire) after it was commissioned to create new signage at Ann Forshaw’s Alston Dairy in Longridge, near Preston.
The Signs Express design team created 10 new aluminium signs with LED lighting and acrylic edges to facilitate illumination, the result of which can now be seen at the entrance to the dairy on the B6243 Preston Road and also on the dairy buildings.
Tom Smith, who designed and installed the signage, confided: “A sign with a glowing green edge was something that I had never encountered before and making that happen over such a large area proved to be something of a challenge, but the final result certainly catches the eye – and casts a green glow over Longridge at night.”
Ann Forshaw is a £3 million turnover business whose products are stocked in most major UK supermarkets, including Waitrose and Booths, as well as being used as a prime ingredient by top hotels and restaurants across the country.
Emma Coupe, Development Director at Alston Dairy, said: “The signage was part of an ongoing development project we have been undertaking to increase our capacity. Signs Express had previously provided eye-catching graphics for our vehicle fleet as well as other external sites on our site and, as usual, it made the whole process, from design to final installation, look very easy. We are thrilled by the end result and we’ve had so many lovely comments about the new signs, which certainly make a big impact.”
