Stadium Signage - The Image Group's £1 Million Stadium Refurbishment Signage is Turf to Beat.
Large format digital printing company The Image Group has successfully completed a comprehensive overhaul of interior and external branding at Premiership football club Burnley's Turf Moor stadium.
The Manchester-based printers has produced and installed way-finding and themed internal and external branding and signage at the Jimmy Mcllroy stand - part of the £1 million government-funded Enterprise Haven.
The Enterprise Haven is Burnley Football Club's Community Sports Trust's unique community and government collaboration. It will shortly be opened as a base for start-up businesses as part of the successful Pennine Lancashire 'No Limits' Programme.
For Image Group account manager Mike Holmes said:
"This was one of those jobs we could really get our teeth into. We were involved from the start with signage and way finding audits. We planned, manufactured and supplied the signage - with the final installation element completed in less than two days. It worked like clock work and we're very proud of the results. We've helped to give this famous stadium a thoroughly-deserved makeover."
The 15,000 square feet Enterprise Haven now features more than 60 signs from small to 150x150mm to 1m x 600 mm in size. Many of the signs were printed on aluminium using The Image Group's new super-wide format Vutek QS 5 colour digital print machine. The process under prints a thin layer of white paint under the artwork to ensure the faithful reproduction of vibrant colours on the metallic surface.
The Image Group also supplied more than 14 adhesive window crest graphics, whilst the way-finding signage all adhered to the latest strict Disability Discrimination Act 2005 guidelines for visual disabilities incorporating machined Braille overlays.

Burnley Football Club Stadium Manager Doug Metcalfe said:
"This wonderful facility now provides stunning business and conferencing facilities along with spectacular new match day hospitality options. It was important for us that the signage was in-keeping with the overall quality of the redevelopment. Finding a supplier with a proven track record in similar work was really important to us. Having qualified and certified contractors on site was equally vital. Thanks to The Image group's attention and professionalism we now have a facility with signage to rival other Premiership clubs."
The Image Group also manufactured, supplied and installed fresh new 'Claret and You' branded artwork around the Turf Moor ground for the beginning of the 2007-8 season. The signs were manufactured utilising vinyl prints; dibond graphic panels; individually-cut aluminium characters; and, acrylic panels.
