All the fun of the fair at Wolverhampton’s newest burger restaurant

Fairground letters are special. There has been a surge in popularity for these distinctive lights thanks to interior designers who love to display them at home as an art form.

But they’re also a perfect fit for stylish and memorable commercial, exterior signs with colourful bulbs bringing a hint of old school circus glamour.

Fairground lettering is at the heart of our new signage for Burger Priest in Victoria Street, Wolverhampton city centre. The restaurant is due to open tomorrow.

We love the way these quirky characters help put a unique stamp on Burger Priest’s business, strengthening its identity in a busy market.

We have used big and bold shapes, with smaller bulbs to help avoid too much of a ‘busy’ feel and to work well in daylight.

This is our finished result:

Our production process combined latest techniques with the craftsmanship for which we are renowned.

We built the letters using stainless steel, primed and applied basecoat then a finish coat. Then we added all wiring, before installing lamp holders and fixed low wattage incandescent lamps.

At Burger Priest, we have also added more traditional touches, with this hand-painted sign:

Wall graphics, designed by Gavin Obee of Print Gekko are also striking and simple.

We wish Burger Priest lots of success with their latest venture – here’s hoping the crowds, roll up, roll up in their quest for a great burger.

This is the latest example of our work to be added to our blog.
