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”.
