What do I fill my footpath sign with to stop it blowing away?


For the models of footpath signs that can be filled you can use sand or water. Typically sand is the preferred option.


Can you provide full colour photographs and text for my vehicle graphics? What options are available?


From simple single colour lettering on the side of your vehicle to large format photographs and vehicle wraps, Speedy Signs can provide a one stop shop solution for all of your vehicle graphic needs. Our vehicle graphics are applied in our dedicated vehicle application bay wherever possible, providing the optimum conditions for vehicle graphics application. We also provide a range of magnetic vehicle signs and use reflective or conspicuity markings for high visibility vehicles.


How do I remove my vehicle graphics?


For a small fee, Speedy Signs can remove the graphics for you. Alternatively you should be able to remove your own vehicle graphics without damaging your paintwork by using a hair dryer to warm and loosen the vinyl. Depending how long the graphics have been on the vehicle, you may see a small glue residue on the paintwork which can be easily removed with turps. In the case of full vehicle wraps, it is advisable to get a professional to remove the graphics. For further advice please contact your nearest centre.


What are decals?


Decals are another term used for vinyl graphics and vinyl signs. Decals are commonly used as a term to describe text and logos on motorbikes, cars, trailers, trucks, vans and boats amongst other transportation modes.


What are reflective vinyl graphics/conspicuity markings?


There are specialist vinyl materials available which offer reflective qualities for high impact graphics throughout the night. We can apply your vehicle with rear chevrons or build reflective graphics into your livery design for high visibility of your vehicle.

Also called frosted vinyl, etch window graphics are ideal for branding areas of glass giving a professional finish to your premises. Large areas of glass also need to be identified with markings to conform to health and safety standards and etch vinyl is a great way to achieve this.


What's the difference between vehicle graphics, vehicle livery and vehicle wrapping>


Vehicle graphics and vehicle livery are the general terms used to describe the application of vinyl graphics to any type of vehicle from cars and vans right through to lorries or motorcycles. We have also applied graphics to buses, boats and even an aeroplane in the past. The graphics can be as simple as text lettering or can include photographs, company logos, tonal fades and even reflective or conspicuity markings.
