Correx boards, acrylic signs and banners for Bury FC

Bury Football club approached GJ Plastics to become their official sign and branding partner.

The first project we undertook was the complete revamp of all the acrylic signs; we designed and direct printed the signs, the acrylic cut to size and shape on one of our lasers.

The acrylic signs were then installed in all areas such as, the director’s suite and the 1885 hospitality lounge right the way through to the players area, referee rooms, medical areas and the offices.

We were then tasked with the design and installation of the signage around the pitch.

Whilst designing the correx signs, we ensured that we worked closely with each relevant sponsor, ensuring each correx board reflected accurately the sponsors image and brand.

Mesh outdoor banners were also designed for various sponsors, these varied in size from twenty six foot by twenty foot all the way up to an impressive forty foot by twenty foot. GJ Plastics understood the importance of working closely with both the club and the sponsor. We even designed the specially manufactured steel fitting posts, which were required for the installation of the outdoor banners.

The Ratio Law Stand.

When Manchester Company Ratio Law became the West Stand sponsors, Bury FC asked GJ Plastics to produce a 56m sign for the top of the stand. This was then expertly installed onto the stand.

The decision was made that aluminium composite signage would be the most appropriate material for this outdoor sign. Making the signs relatively lightweight, strong and durable.

The sign panels were direct printed using our large format flatbed printer. The sections were then installed onto the top of the stand, approximately 24m off the ground, with the aid of a cherry picker.

Commercial Manager Jonathan Parkinson said:  ”I am delighted to be able to welcome GJ Plastics to the growing list of businesses that have become part our business revolution.  Graham and his team have worked extremely hard in a short space of time and I’m certain we will enjoy a long and mutually successful relationship”.

leaflet holders promote your sales

Printed media still has a vital role to play in promoting and informing the customer of your products or offerings.
Therefore, it is important that your brochures or literature is displayed correctly and the uptake is maximised.
Leaflet holders, be they wall mounted, freestanding or desktop variety could, make that important difference between someone reading your message or you gaining a sale.

Remember presentation is important, simply placing a pile of loose leaflets on your counter, not only looks untidy but the visual impact is very poor.
Placing them in a leaflet holder enhances your professional image, the literature not only stands up correctly but encourage people to take one.

The best type of leaflet holders offer virtually full height of the literature in them beware, on dispensers that are only two thirds height, your literature will have the tendency to flop over, looking disordered.

A tip to get the best out of your promotional literature is if you have wall mounted leaflet holders you should periodically change the position of the various leaflets, this ensures their impact will not diminish and continue to draw attention to your products or services.

Free standing revolving leaflet stands are great for displaying a variety of leaflets not only can you display your leaflets in specific areas this is known has hot spotting,movement with the aid of the leaflet holder spinners is introduced into your display.

A portable leaflet holder trolley offers are a great solution if you wish to move your literature from one area to another, leaflets can been taken from either sides and can be safely stored away when not required.


Roller banners help Japanese Garden win gold

Japanese Garden Design.

The Japanese Garden society was asked to design a garden for the new Bury hospice,

Utilising our large format direct printing methods, the garden plans and photo images were printed to large foam PVC sheets and placed in the tent along with the printed roller banners and leaflet holders produced by GJ Plastics.


The intended design is of a landscape with water represented by gravel, rivers by slate and mountains by large boulders. Planting will complete the garden to create a beautiful landscape scene.

In using their imaginations, you can become absorbed in the scene and perhaps for a short time enjoy the peace and tranquillity. In this sense gardens representing landscape such as Japanese gardens can be experienced as ‘healing’ gardens.
Consisting of two parts, one part being a Japanese style garden with rocks, gravel, pruned trees and lanterns, whilst the other is more a traditional English style with a lawn, decorative shrubs and ornaments.

The designed garden was then produced to the plan by the society for the RHS flower show at Tatton Park.

We are very pleased to say the judges awarded the gold medal in the large garden category of the show.

After the show volunteers from the society will transplant and extend the garden to a much larger version to its location at the new hospice in Rochdale Old Road, Bury.
