Grasmere Primary School located in Hackney, London, is an old school but had recently had their reception area refurbished. The new reception was very modern but also bare and needed a full set of signage to add interest.

During the initial visit, Michael was able to establish from the school's Business Manager that they had a clear idea of exactly what they wanted. In this instance, the Schools Catalogue was a valuable tool, and they were able to point out the exact signs that they wanted. They were really happy that it was a simple process and that they could get across what they had in their minds.

The signs that they opted for all needed to tie in with the school's branding in terms of design and values. This was a challenge due to the variety of different signs they wanted, including office tech, wallpaper and flat cut letters.

The decision making process was fast, which meant that installation could be done quickly. The installation took place during school hours, which was mainly possible because the signs were for the reception area only. This mean that there was little disruption to the school's daily operations. The customer was very happy with the fitters, finding them friendly and professional.

The result is a small area, which had previously been a blank canvas, transformed into a welcoming first impression for visitors with a big impact.


"From start to finish. The service we received was excellent. Thank you. Michael knew what he was talking about and gave us a lot of ideas about the measurement and the colours of signs. The installation staff were really nice and cleaned up their work.

I also informed other schools in my area about your company and how the signs changed our entrance’s look.

Overall, I am quite happy with the outcome and parents/carers loved all signs we installed and made lovely comments about every single one of them."
