Illuminated Signs by Ward Signs of Bristol

Lighting is often essential to accentuate the presence of a sign. Illuminated letters can make signs instantly eye-catching and vastly enhance their visibility.

Illumination can also be an advantage because of its appearance, but also because it renders the sign visible to passers-by at night-time. Illuminated signage acts as a beacon in the dark, advertising your business or brand and effortlessly grabbing attention.

There are many ways signage can be enhanced via illumination. Here are some of the most popular choices:

  • Neon Lights: Neon signs instantly brighten up any internal or external space;
  • External Lamps: Designed to be fitted on the outside of a wall or building, external lamps feature dramatic effects caused by the contrast of bright lights and shadows on the lettering.
  • Internal Lighting: Box signs are fitted with internal lights so that the logo or wording is visible within. The face has an attractive ‘glowing’ appearance.
  • Halo Lettering: Halo illumination causes a glow of light around either an acrylic letter, a built-up powder-coated stainless steel letter, or a powder-coated aluminium letter, as LEDs are positioned to shine from behind the letter.
  • Front-lit Signs: These consist of letters and animations that are illuminated so the audience can see the bright colours and intricate designs.
  • Tray Signs: tray signs create a modern and identifiable presence, day and night when illuminated.

Ward Signs have an extensive product range to suit all requirements. Many nationally recognised companies have benefitted from Ward Signs, including the BBC and the NHS.

Fast, Courteous and Well-priced

I commissioned Wards of Bristol to produce a bronze memorial plaque, which featured the intricate engraving of a scarce butterfly. The resulting work is beautiful and has completely surpassed my expectations.

The service received was also fast, courteous and well-priced, and I would gladly recommend Wards to anyone I know.
