The Trawlerman – Keighley

The Trawlerman - Illuminated Sign

ESP Signs were invited to quote for the new signage at The Trawlerman by the new owner Bob Arneil. Bob had recently taken over the failing fish and chip shop in Keighley, Bradford which was previously known as The Kingfisher and wanted to replace the existing dated signage to help promote the new ownership and to transform the exterior. The site is situated by an extremely busy roundabout with thousands of cars passing by every day and Bob wanted to make sure that firstly the passers-by noticed them and secondly that the signage would entice them in to enjoy their food.

Following an initial on site meeting and site survey ESP Signs went away and produced a complete signage solution which included a quotation, designs proposals and image examples. We then during a second site visit presented this to Bob who was delighted with what was proposed and confirmed the order for ESP Signs to be their signage supplier ahead of a number of other signage companies. Over a number of weeks our design team worked closely with Bob to produce design amendments and product samples to ensure that the customer understood the solution proposed and was happy with everything before the production stage began.

The solution included the following sign products:

Blue aluminium cladding panels with a fishnet design printed direct. These were fixed over the dated, white corrugated panels along three sides of the building.

Aluminium fret cut trays, powder coated blue with internal LED modules which illuminated the text when dark.

Circular lightboxes with LED internal illumination and full colour printed logo applied to face.

White vinyl fish graphics applied direct to cladding panels.

Aluminium powder coated tray with white vinyl text applied.

Aluminium hording panels with full colour printed graphics for three large road side advertising boards.

ESP Signs project managed the complete solution from applying to the council for advertising consent, hiring access machinery to install the signs and liaising with the customers electricians to ensure the correct power supplies were installed. The signage really did transform the premises and Bob was delighted with the overall finish, needless to say the signage is attracting new customers through the doors every day.

Customer Testimonial

I would like to thanks you and your staff at ESP SIGNS for the fantastic job you have done at The Trawlerman. From the outset the meetings we had to design what I think is a bright and modern exterior to our shop, were a pleasure and very professionally done and presented by yourself, nothing was too much trouble. The project was completed on time, to budget and managed faultlessly. The design, materials and workmanship are top quality and the price was very competitive. Overall I think the management of the project from initial designs to the installation could not have been done better. Once again thanks Mike and if we need this kind of work again be sure my first call will be to ESP signs.

Wood effect signs are ideal if you are looking for an alternative, low maintenance solution to timber signage.

Using our in-house solvent printer, we can custom wrap any aluminium sign tray with a wood effect print. With our wood effect signage, there are no limitations to the wood type/look you can achieve. Designed with a protective laminate, it will provide you with a great looking, problem free sign for years to come. This customer requested to add built up lettering to help highlight their name, which makes the overall effect very impressive.

Exhibition Display

When it came to their BEVA exhibition display; Global Leaders in Veterinary Nutraceuticals Vet Plus approached ESP Signs to supply premium signage.
After an initial conversation regarding sizes it was decided that an Aluminium Tension Frame & Silicone Edged Fabric Graphic would be used to dress the rear wall of the display. This eliminated panel joins and provided the professional / clean look that Vet Plus desired.
Every Sign Possible have previously supplied Pop-Up displays and various exhibitions for the company, cementing their place as an expert in the industry.

ESP Signs were approached to design, supply and install new signage for Love Card Ltd; a used car retailer who had just moved premises.

Every Sign Possible designed the new graphics for the shop incorporating elements form their newly branded website. A modern yet fun design has been created whilst the latest materials have been used to give shop front a fresh approachable look.

This was achieved using a folded aluminium tray system with a corner piece so that the main fascia 'wrapped around' the existing building. An illuminated roadside sign was also manufactured and installed to catch the attention of passing traffic during winter.

Craig and Jess (joint owners) had this to say about ESP Signs:


We are a used car retailer and have been established since 2008. We have just purchased some bigger premises in Baxenden, and needed some new signs to reflect the type of work we do at Love Cars Ltd. We don’t just sell used cars, we do contract hire and leasing, finance, part exchange, and felt our current signs didn’t say enough about what we do! We shopped around and met up with several companies, however we decided on ESP as they seemed the most enthusiastic. Matt visited our office within a few hours of our initial phone call, and did a site visit the day after at the new premises. He was full of ideas of how we could improve our signs to get the most out of them, and how to get the most for our money. We wanted something a little bit different that stood out, looked professional but fun at the same time! And ESP managed to reflect this in the design! The installation was quickly and professionally carried out, and we were more than happy with the price for the job! The signs look excellent quality, and more importantly have had very positive feedback since they have been put up! We would not hesitate to recommend ESP to anyone, and we will certainly be using them again in the near future.

Since the initial work was carried out, Love Cars Ltd have since ordered vehicle graphics and internal signs.

Looking to rebrand, Duffin's Estate Agents (formally Benchmark Lettings) approached several signage companies within the area. Fighting off competition, ESP signs won the opportunity to provide internal and external illuminated signage for the new shop.

Several different signs were used to create a stunning entrance to the once dilapidated shop front. Using aluminium composite trays paired with trough lighting ESP Signs constructed a complete facelift.

 Sonia (owner) had this to say about ESP Signs:

Benchmark Lettings (now Duffin's Estate Agents) have been established since 2011 as a Residential Letting Agents.
As we now specialise in residential AND commercial sales; the branding had become to restrictive.
We spoke with a selection of signage providers when looking to re brand at our Blackburn office.. ESP signs responded immediately to our enquiry, arranging an appointment to meet with us and view the office.
They listened carefully to our requirements and made recommendations that were right for us and within our budget. All of the work was carried with no disruption to our operations and within the timescales clearly laid out by the team at ESP signs. Needless to say we’re delighted with the finished result. A friendly, courteous and professional team, great job!

Also within the signage package was a projecting sign complete with double trough lights, internal acrylic signage also complete with trough lights and internal wallpaper graphics.
