Turner Signs serves up a tasty treat

Wide Format Solutions

Barnsley based sign maker, Turner Signs, has used Drytac Polar Street FX to produce eye catching outdoor wall graphics for local Mexican restaurant Ico.

The PVC free aluminium print media, supplied by Signmaster Systems, helped to create a striking exterior wall graphic.

Ico recently opened its doors at a unique location in the city of Wakefield, with the restaurant being based underground in a former bank vault.

Having worked with Turner Signs on several print and signage projects for its other restaurants, Ico once again approached the sign maker to help raise awareness of its new location and promote its food to the people of Wakefield.

Turner Signs was tasked with filling an unusual brick wall space with its Mexican inspired artwork, but with the additional challenge for the installation to have an authentic Mexican style.

The company first considered printed aluminium composite board for the job, but after seeing Polar Street FX on the Drytac Instagram page, it quickly became clear that the media would be a much better fit for the appearance that the restaurant desired.

Turner Signs, a long term user of Drytac products across a wide range of jobs, used its Mimaki CJV-150 to print the design onto Polar Street FX, before applying the graphic to the wall space.

‘The customer was absolutely blown away with the final result,’ said director Curt Turner. ‘We have been working with Drytac media for about four years and know how flexible the products are for jobs like this.’

The media is suitable for outdoor floor and wall graphics, without the need for lamination. Boasting several sli -ratings, Polar Street FX has been specifically developed for rough ground or wall surfaces such as brick, concrete, asphalt, or any other low energy surfaces.

Coated on one side with a clear, high tack adhesive, Polar Street FX is compatible with latex, UV and eco solvent printing technology.
