leave a comment

There are a range of different types of planer blades on the market and Knife-Point are able to supply the best of them.

Knife-Point Are the Industry Leader in the Supply of Planer Blades

Modern planer blades guarantee high quality work when implemented correctly. All you need to do is to decide which type of blades you require; and from which supplier you’d like to purchase them. There are plenty of these great products being offered by a number of different companies, but how do you know which is the right one for you?

As the industry leader in the field, Knife-Point are sure to deliver only the uppermost levels of customer satisfaction. Competition is fierce between knife manufacturers and suppliers; and Knife-Point have risen to the top of the pile thanks to their ability to offer expansive choice through their blades which are tailor made to fit a whole variety of machines.

Power Planer Blades

The manufacture of woodworking planer blades has naturally evolved alongside technological developments. Previously, it was the case that woodworking planers were handheld tools, but this has changed as time has progressed. Contemporary power planers are now the relative tool of choice; and the standard of work being produced with them is benefiting.

The modern tools can also be operated both manually and electronically dependent on the job in hand. A planing platform commonly accompanies these power planers. This means that sections of wood can be adjusted more quickly and accurately, subsequently improving the end results.

Illuminated Shop Signs Sheffield and Beyond for Help the Heroes

leave a comment

Illuminated shop signs can have a dramatic overall effect on the look of any retail shop. Modern LED lights are cheap to run, low maintenance and long lasting, making them perfect for use on shop signage and business signage.

Stainless Steel 3D Letters for Retail Shop Sign

As professional sign makers in Sheffield, Image Sign Studio is lucky enough to be manufacturing and installing a number of illuminated retail shop signs for the charity Help for Heroes. They originally carried out the manufacture and installation of the Help for Heroes shop sign in the shopping centre Meadowhall last year, and are now manufacturing and installing signs for the shops all over the UK including Birmingham, Peterborough, Essex, Wimbledon and Bromley.

Shop Signs Sheffield and the Use of Dibond

To manufacture the shop signs for this charity, Image Sign Studio used Dibond, which is an aluminium composite material consisting of a polyethylene core and aluminium cover sheet. Dibond is a lightweight yet rigid material, and there are many advantages to using it in sign making. The aluminium alloy is corrosion resistant, making it an excellent choice for shop signs that are likely to be exposed to the elements.

Dibond is also great for printing on too, lending itself especially to digital printing, which is a popular choice for many shop signs Sheffield. Although Dibond is extremely lightweight, it is also very rigid and achieves a perfect flatness. Just what you need for a shop sign!

3D Illuminated Shop Signs from Image Sign Studio

Image Sign Studio was pleased to be able to be involved in this project for Help for Heroes as it is a great cause. Help for Heroes is a tri-service military charity which provides support to full time, reservist Servicemen and women and veterans from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force. They support veterans and serving personnel who have been wounded, injured or become sick as a result of serving their country, and offer support to their families and dependants as they care for their loved ones.

Boost Your Christmas Sales with a New Shop Sign Sheffield

leave a comment

Now is the time to ensure that you make the most of attracting the shoppers into your retail store. According to Mintel’s Christmas 2014 predictions, although online sales are again set to increase, a whopping 87% of all retail sales will be made in shops in December 2014.

Online business Website City AM recently reported that although fewer shoppers visited shopping centres and high streets this summer, retail spending was actually at its highest since January.

Footfall in Out of Town Retail Parks Decreases

The Director of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Helen Dickinson said that although footfall had decreased, the amount of money that was spent by shoppers per trip had actually increased. The data went on to reveal that although footfall has decreased on high streets and shopping centres, it increased by 2.9% in out-of-town retail parks during August 2014.

“It seems that customers are hitting the high streets with purpose – knowing what they want to buy ahead of time, supported by online research ­– and doing more shopping in a single trip,” Helen Dickinson said.

Expert Sign Makers Sheffield

As expert sign makers in Sheffield, Image Sign Studio are well aware of the increasing popularity of online shopping, but we firmly believe that there is plenty of scope for retail shops to claim their fair share of the market. There’s nothing like going into a shop and physically holding a product, then to come home with the item in your shopping bag on that very day. For all the convenience of online shopping, there’s only so much you can find out about the item from looking at it on a screen and reading reviews.

Online shopping may be as popular as ever, but the research suggests that there is still an enormous amount of people stepping out on the high street, shopping centres and retail parks.

Stand Out This Winter with an Illuminated Shop Sign Sheffield

One of the ways that you can attract these customers is by investing in a new shop sign Sheffield ready to catch those festive shoppers. As the nights draw in and the weather becomes autumnal, perhaps an illuminated shop sign Sheffield may be the perfect choice for your business?
