Can I get a custom made sign?
Of course! The majority of what we do is bespoke which is individual to the customer, usually including their company name and corporate identity.
If you have something in mind please contact the office where someone will discuss the options with you or you can always arrange a site survey appointment, where we can take a look at your premises and advise you.
How do I pay for my business graphics & signs?
New customers will usually be able to pay on completion of the job and may be asked to pay a deposit before any work has commenced and this can be either in the form of cash, cheque, credit card or through a pro-forma invoice. Once you have set up an account with us, in most cases we will offer you a 30 day invoice account.

- Does your document require any personalised details or unique number printing?
- is a printed proof required before final production?

Please Note: There are certain limitations with sizes of each material. We aim to make this clear to you upon quotation so that you can factor this into your job.
How do I setup my artwork for printing?
- Any artwork needs to be provided in one of the following formats:
.pdf / .eps / .ai / .jpg (hi-resolution)
- For special printing/cutting we will need to have the files in vector format so as to complete it with no problems.
- Text needs to be supplied as curves or the relevant fonts embedded in the file.
- Any cut lines will need to be as curves and outlined of the background
Can you setup my artwork for me before it goes to print?
Yes, we specialise in setting up artwork for each piece of equipment so that it will print with the specification required for each piece of equipment. One of the most common problems when setting up artwork, is that the colour values can be known to be incorrect. For example, each black colour will need to be printed/displayed as C 40 Y 40 M 40 K 100 for the highest quality finish and black.
Each piece of artwork will need to be in CMYK format with spot colours (e.g. Pantone) included.
What is bleed?
Any item we print, if it contains an element that extends to the edge of the document then you will need to apply bleed. For example, this maybe an image, background colour, line or type.
The term ‘bleed’ is used for any element they extends beyond the document edge.
Bleed is added to a document to allow a tolerance when trimming the final document to the correct size with an industrial guillotine. We generally specify a ‘bleed’ amount of 3mm.
What is the difference between margin and bleed?
The difference is that a margin would most probably be printed and part of the finished artwork whereas a bleed is never printed as it is extra and outside of the cut/trim line.
Margins make up the vertical and horizontal areas between elements. If elements have no margins around them, they will bump right up against each other. Some elements have margins by default, so often even if you haven’t added a margin, you may still see one.
The space outside of, or between, elements is what comprises the margin areas. This area would also be outside of any borders set on elements. I should point out there there could be other reasons for elements to have space between them — not just margins.
Can you advise on Health & Safety regulations?
Revolution Signs observe the highest standards of working practice and ensure we are fully versed in health and safety regulations. In most cases we will offer a free site survey where we will be able to advise you of your obligations. Please contact us to place an enquiry.
Do you offer any guarantee for my business signs?
We offer signs for a wide range of needs from temporary to permanent signs and graphics and will discuss with you the potential lifespan of the products before the order is placed. As we supply many types of signs, we do not offer a standard guarantee across all of our products but in general, we offer a no quibble 6 month guarantee. We value our high standards of workmanship so please speak with the office to discuss any individual needs.
What are my legal obligations?
It is always advisable to contact the planning office when commissioning new exterior signs to ensure you comply with current building and planning regulations. You should contact the DVLA to notify them of any changes to your vehicle after receiving vehicle graphics.
