Astra Wins Best Nationwide Roll-Out Signage Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Astra Signs was honoured in the British Sign Awards 2015, winning the Roll-Out Programme category for our work for car dealership Arnold Clark.

The business needed signage at more than 30 sites across the UK, from Inverness to Milton Keynes. We surveyed, designed, manufactured and installed signs as part of an 8-month programme, including illuminated branding.


We had to align huge volumes with tight timescales, which is always the biggest challenge of large-scale work – especially as we care so much about attention to detail – but our expert team delivered great results at every stage. Site surveys and designs were each turned around within a week; and installation began three weeks after we received approval to proceed.

We installed more than 50,000 LED lights as part of the project, creating built-up illuminated letters for corporate branding, illuminated accent trim for buildings and illuminated entrance portals for several sites. We also produced 20 illuminated totems.

During the installation process we continually improved efficiency by observing which parts of our approach were working best, particularly when handling built-up lettering. It was important to us that the work at every site was consistent and completed to an equally high standard.
