VM & Display Show 2019

We’re back from a great few days at the VM & Display Show at the Business Design Centre in London.  It was fantastic to see so many old and new faces at the show, with such a wide range of VM and display services on offer!

      

 

The VM show was a great way to start our 50th year celebrations!

Having started the business in 1969, Graham Sweet has been designing and manufacturing polystyrene display props, seasonal decorations, as well as large 3D letters and bespoke products from our UK based studios for five decades.

 

With lots of new and exciting products to show you all, we are looking forward to see what the future may bring!

ITV Creates featuring Bharti Parmar

Bharti Parmar features as #week 12 of the commissioned artists to take over ITV’s logo for the channel’s new on-screen identity project called ITV Creates.

Launched on January 1st 2019, every week new idents are showcased, with a different interpretation of ITV’s logo created by a wide range of British artists from Turner Prize winners to emerging talent.

For ITV Creates, Bharti has conceptualised the ITV ident as a 3-D sculpture that exploits common principles and designs in marquetry. Designed in similar colourways to the existing logo, her interpretation cleverly subverts the scheme using decorative motifs.

 

See the YouTube clip below to find out more –

Our bespoke polystyrene letters were used as a base for Bharti’s unique creation.  Great work!

Say it with large bright letters!

We recently produced these brightly coloured 3D letters for iElive Event Services for their client’s awards dinner at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester.

These brightly coloured 3D letters clearly made a real impact at the event!  Placed throughout the venue at different locations, the letters were sure to draw attention of the guests.

  

Each of the 4 words was one of the client’s new core values, therefore these needed to be very clear and striking.

  

“We were very pleased with the quality of them and pleased that you suggested the idenden coating. And the painting was a perfect finish! The client is planning to reuse them at their events throughout the rest of the year.”

Beattie Payne, iElive Event Services

Thanks for sharing the great photos with us!

We were thrilled to hear that the team at Just After Midnight were so pleased with their new prop –

We recently produced these large wooden letters to display at the events, and they have proved to be a great photo opportunity for students.  The large 3D letters are a great prop for graduations, open days and other university events!

At approx 3ft high, the letters are sure to make an impact!

  

The wooden letters provide a more durable and hard wearing alternative to our polystyrene letters.

If they are to be used on a grassed surface, then we can also supply pegs so that they can be securely fixed to the ground.

The letters look great at outdoor events throughout the year!

Making an impact at Middlesex University!

Middlesex University students celebrate in style with #MADEIT lettering!

A little while ago, we produced #MADEIT letters for Middlesex University. These letters stood at approximately 4ft tall, with individual bases which made a real impact with students on social media and on campus!

Middlesex University wanted to really celebrate with the new students, and to show them how proud they are of them getting the results they needed!  A huge well done from us too!

Students at Middlesex Uni celebrating their success on campus!

 

“the letters have been a smash! They worked so well in our video, they were bold and celebratory so they had a real impact. They created a buzz on social and on campus, and got the students talking and bonding as well as sharing pics and insta stories with them to celebrate their place at Middlesex University.”

 

Our lettering is ideal for outdoor events, conferences and exhibitions. They can be freestanding or suspended and they are sure to make a bold impression.  These letters were used for indoor and outdoor events and coated in a special coating to help to protect them from the elements as well as the Middlesex Uni Karate Team!

 

“They’re so well made, the service has been amazing, and we’ll definitely be ordering more in future.”

  

Thanks for sharing the great photos!

 

Looking to make your own statement?  Look no further.  Our 3D lettering can be produced in either Arial Bold or Impact Condensed as standard.  We can also produce various other fonts and create logos from as small as 50mm high to over 3 metres!
