For most people the present economic crisis spells bad times but with the Bed and Breakfast trade that does not seem to be the case. With the recent credit crunch more and more people are finding that going abroad is beyond their means and they are looking at the cheaper alternative of going on holiday closer to home. This means more business for Bed and Breakfasts and more and more people are looking at the option of starting a B&B to make a little extra money. At Clover Signs we are glad for the increase in enquiries into Bed and Breakfast Signs. They are simpler than most business signs because often they hang outside a private residence and serve as a house sign as well. The example below demonstrates this.
The sub sign is attached using quick links and can be removed during the winter months or when you no longer wish advertise your B&B to passers by. Also perfect for hotels.
We actually started on this project quite a while ago, but we have only now gotten around to taking some quality photos of the sign in situ.
February of last year we were approached by the management of the Royal Herbert Pavilions, a luxury development of apartments in Woolwich created through the restoration of the Royal Herbert Hospital.
The building has a unique and interesting history, not least because it was the first specially built military hospital in the country and the first, military or civilian, to utilise the pavilion design.
They wanted a building sign that would reflect the unique nature of this block of flats and turned to Clover Signs for expert advice. We payed them a visit before even starting on the sign in order to get a feel of the surroundings so the sign would be sure to fit in.
Here is the finished result, complete with an image of the clock tower, intricately carved and gilded, and a complimentary 10 MPH sign underneath, as the existing cheap acrylic sign was completely out of context:
