Free site survey and national install service perfect for construction sites & new housing developments.
Our experience makes the difference.
The UK Sign Shop has been providing high quality signage solutions for over 50 years. We have been supplying printed hoarding panels for both external timber structures and internal temporary systems since we installed our first digital printer over 15 years ago. Our online range is just a small selection of our capabilities, if you do not see what you are looking for then please contact our team for alternative solutions.
Bigger Projects and Trade Services
If you are looking for a short run of hoarding panels at the standard size of 8x4ft, then it is easy to order straight from our online store. If you have multiple panels, varying sizes and more complex projects then please contact our team and we will assign you your very own project manager who will be able to advise you on every step of your requirement from site survey, offering cost effective solutions, design, production timings and arranging the best installers.
We offer a white label graphic and install service and as we carry out all our own internal production we are confident our trade pricing on project work is amongst the most competitive in the UK.
We offer graphics for both external and internal hoardings.
When people think of hoarding they usually think of external timber structures, this makes up a majority of our orders but we also offer graphics for internal temporary hoardings as well.
External panels are usually printed on 3mm hoarding grade aluminium composite panel with a protective anti-graffiti laminate. We can reduce cost by offering two alternative materials, Correx and Foamex or by offering without a lamination.
Internal graphics are usually supplied as self adhesive vinyl prints with a removable adhesive. These are popular when being applied to a rented internal hoarding, they type you would typical see in retail shopping centres when a store front or area is under refurbishment.
Supplying artwork for hoarding graphic panels.
Please supply your artwork as one single file and our studio team will split it into panels to suit the site survey, as indicated on our PDF proof so you can see where the joins will be. We advise any images or photos that are used are at least 100dpi, any lower may result in a loss of quality when printed. For highest quality any text, logos or patterns will ideally be supplied in vector format. Please indicate any cut paths and spot white areas on a separate layer identified by a magenta fill or stroke line.
Advice when installing printed hoarding graphics
Panels are installed to the timer structure with wood screws and they are finished with screw cap covers. Top and bottom fixings are hidden by headers and kickers, these are strips of aluminium composite panel or sometimes painted timber which run across the top and bottom of your graphic panels.
You will need to make sure your timber structure has been assessed for wind load and structural stability.

National Site Survey Service & Installation.
We offer a free site survey service for construction site hoardings. Once your timber hoarding is erected we will attend site and take accurate measurements including covering the stepping of panels. From this information we will create a template showing panel splits, this template is then used for artwork design and positioning.
We charge an upfront deposit fee prior to attending the site survey, this is location dependent, this fee is then refunded from the cost of the project once the order is place.
Our install team are capable of installing hundreds of meters of hoarding a day, we have experience of completing hoarding runs in excess of 1 miles but we also enjoy smaller more intricate projects that require more complex add-ons. In addition to flat panels our team can also install 3D letters, illumination panels, LED backlit logos and others special addons such as specific colour vinyl.
The belief that the best materials matter.
Over many years we have tried and test most materials available printed hoarding boards. We have refined the selection of materials that we use, choosing to only offer branded products that have proven to stand the test of time. We use materials supplied by Dibond, Alupanel, Multipanel, Perspex and laminates from Mactac.
We aim to supply panels with leading anti-graffiti laminate coatings and the highest environmental qualities in their field.
