Piecing together an Education Puzzle

Posted by: Alex on: 03/08/2017

Foamex puzzle pieces

At Carrick Signs, we recently had the opportunity to supply some creative jigsaw signage to Global Campaign for Education (GCE) UK. This non-governmental organisation is part of an international coalition working to promote children's and adult education through research and advocacy.

Global Campaign for Education UK recently held an event at the UK parliament to raise awareness for children missing out on education throughout the world and had contacted us in order to provide some signage to further illustrate the message. 

The idea for the signage centred around creating foamex jigsaw puzzle pieces with a single word printed on each cut to ...

Spot Printed Perspex

printed perspex

Sometimes, printing on foamex or foamcore just won’t cut it. If you’re looking for a print or a sign that’s going to catch the eye of any passer-by, a Perspex or acrylic print is the way to go.  

Our flatbed printers have the ability to print white in specified locations, we call this spot white, partly because of the way we set up the image to tell the printer to use the white ink. Without the white ink, colours printed on a clear surface would look more like a stain glass window than a sharp and solid print. Being able ...

Stadium Pitch Signs and graphics

We have just accomplished an urgent project to print and install 36 laminated self-adhesive outdoor vinyl graphics with 'ao.com' sponsor adverts to cover 36 gates between the stadium sectors.

Superfast turnaround has been proudly delivered in time for the Saturday match. All this was achievable thanks to the commitment of all of our print production staff as well as our fitting team. Our colleagues were applying the graphics in freezing weather conditions and dealing with quite difficult access ...

wall paper printing

We were requested to visit Our Lady’s school in Blackley where they had a large wall within the premises that had recently been re-painted white. The request was made that a religious graphic was placed on the wall. An image was given to ourselves to look at as a basis to work from. We used this image to create a similar design changing the words that were coming out of the hand. In order to make the wallpaper in keeping with the other graphics we have done for the school we used the same cross design within the hand.

We obtained ...

Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull.

In July 2013 we were approached by a company who were interested in having correx, PVC mesh banner, floor graphics, cut correx shapes and  self-adhesive vinyl signage for the RedBull Soap Box event held this year in London city centre and was televised on Channel 5. Instantly we knew our prices would need to be keen, our turn around fast and most definitely our print ...
