Branding signage: Perth safety company’s logo now implemented

Are you looking for a sign company to handle your branding? Do you need more exposure or updated signs for your Perth business? Then look no further than Perth Graphics Centre. In Cockburn, we helped Norsafe to implement a new logo, in bright, bold colours which befit its brand image. With the orange background most likely to fade over time, we’ve painted it in a long lasting enamel, and used high performance vinyl for the lettering. To ensure it stays as flat as possible, we’ve kept the joins in the sign to a minimum, using large panels of aluminium composite....

Building Signage: Perth Bathroom Company’s New Premises

When tackling a project involving building signage, Perth Graphics Centre spends time liaising with the client to ensure their branding looks its best. For example, this signage for Dream Bathrooms needed to be seen from hundreds of metres away, giving its location on a busy Perth street. And without a doubt, we succeeded in bringing the client’s signage vision to life. What should building signage be made from? Using painted aluminium, this sign is sturdy and will last for years. And at nearly nine metres long, it certainly stands out. We also used high quality cast vinyl applied to the...

Fascia Signage – Remember, signs look smaller when they’re installed 0

Fascia Signage – Remember, signs look smaller when they’re installed

When planning for your building fascia signage, it’s a good idea to get a professional measurement done to make sure your signs will best fit the area intended. After years of experience, we find that proper measurements for signage at the quoting phase is critical, particularly because most signs look a lot smaller than you think. For example, here is a sign that was measured properly, and it shows. Have a guess at what size this sign actually is. It measures four metres wide and is 1.5 metres tall. But to look at you’d think it’s much smaller. And had...

Metal building signs – big or small 0

Metal building signs – big or small

In addition to corflute signs, banners and posters, did you know Perth Graphics Centre also manufactures and installs metal signs? The building sign you see here for Contitech is a great example. Made from powdercoated metal, this six metre wide sign is designed to last for ten years, with high quality cast vinyl and a long lasting metal finish. We could have opted to print the background, but given digital print won’t last as long as powdercoating, we opted for the slightly more expensive but far better lasting painted background. The real beauty of our production processes is we get...

Custom Whiteboards: Perth Graphics Centre can help 1

Custom Whiteboards: Perth Graphics Centre can help

A lot of businesses require custom made whiteboards, or grid lines applied to existing whiteboards, and here at Perth Graphics Centre, we specialise in creating a whiteboard that suits your business. Seen above is a custom whiteboard we did for the St John of God Hospital in Wembley. Taking an existing whiteboard, we added the grid-lines to allow various messages to be segregated into areas. It makes running the place easier and makes the writing more legible. Perhaps you only want a small whiteboard. Well, we can take smaller ones and add the grids to them. Or we can use...

Signage update for Alzheimers Australia’s Shenton Park branch

Acrylic signs, freestanding signs, sign refurbishment, aluminium signs – Perth Graphics Centre does it all. So when Alzheimers Australia wanted to freshen up the Mary Chester Club, they called us in to help. The job was to use existing elements and combine them with new signs to make a seamless transition for Alzheimers Australia’s relaunch of its Mary Chester Club. Seen above is a new acrylic sign which uses satin chrome sign mounts to stand off the wall. It’s a simple but very neat way of installing wall signage. For the sign above, it was a matter of aluminium composite...

Adding signage to a tailgate – simple yet effective 0

Adding signage to a tailgate – simple yet effective

When a car is driving behind you, there’s a great opportunity for signage. You have a captive audience to pitch your business to, so why not take advantage of that? Signage on the side of a vehicle is great, as there’s a large area to utilise, however the rear of a car doesn’t get as much attention. However, think about how many times you’re driving next to a car and writing down the phone number or website of the business being advertised – it doesn’t happen, right? When a car is in front of you at a set of lights,...

Metal Signs: Perth Graphics Centre will install almost anywhere

Because of how durable they are, metal signs are the choice for anyone wanting a long lasting sign. And here at Perth Graphics Centre we get asked to install them in all sorts of places. Take these beauty salon signs, for example. The customer was very specific about where they were to go, with one on top of a wall (for visibility) and one on another wall. Yes, we had to do a bit of gardening, but that’s how seriously we take our work. Once these metal signs were fitted, the customer was rapt and her customers can now locate...

Fence Signage 0

Fence Signage

With most properties these days having large areas of fencing, isn’t it worth considering using fence signage? Perth Graphics Centre can print and install your fence signage in a variety of methods, whether it’s using banners with ropes and eyelets, banners with sailtrack edging, or metal signs.

Rooftop signage 0

Rooftop signage

With many businesses having large rooftop spaces, it’s an ideal opportunity to convert them into advertising spaces. Of course, you can’t just whack any old sign up there – it has to be purpose-built. Which is why for The Alexander we have built a galvanised metal frame and used aluminium composite for the face. The ACM panel is strong but lightweight and stays completely flat, unlike Colorbond which tends to go wavy. The metal frame helps the sign to remain stable under wind loading, plus there are metal stays installed behind which keep the sign in place. The result is...

Shopfront signage 0

Shopfront signage

Shopfront signage is arguably the most important signage there is. Without a good shopfront sign, no one will be able to find your business, so getting your signs right is crucial. There are many methods to creating shopfront signs, and seen above is just one of the ways you can have your signs made. Cut out acrylic lettering, combined with digital print and traditional vinyl, laid onto aluminium composite panel – these are the four elements used in the “1 Stop 4 Beauty” signs in Malaga. The cut out lettering makes the logo stand out, while the butterfly uses digital...

It’s quite well known that Perth Graphics Centre is one of Perth’s leading sign-making companies. But did you also know that we install signs as well? Getting the correct installation done is critical.

A-Boards 0


A-Boards, also known as A-Frame signs, are a great, portable way of displaying your information. The two most common sizes for A-Board signs are 600mm (w) x 900mm (h), and 900mm (w) x 1200mm (h). Both sizes are available with wheels and they can have whatever information you require on them. With our long-lasting UV process, we can print full colour signs or leave your A-Frame sign as plain as having a blackboard panel. If you need an A-Board or A-Frame sign, then see the experts at Perth Graphics Centre today.

Perth Graphics Centre upgrades its sign-making capabilities

The sign industry never sits still, and at Perth Graphics Centre we pride ourselves on keeping up with technology. PGC was one of the pioneers of flatbed sign-printing technology in Perth, and now we’ve enhanced our foothold in the market.

Metal signs are faster. Corflute signs are faster. In fact, just about any sign you need, we can make it quicker than ever before. If you need plastic...

Aluminium signs 0

Aluminium signs

Why use aluminium for your signs? Perth Graphics Centre is only too happy to recommend it be used in certain signage applications, because of its longevity, its strength and its lightness. Seen here are some signs in Osborne Park, which Perth Graphics Centre has installed onto both a tilt-up concrete building and onto a pylon sign. Replacement faces were the easiest way to spruce up the pylon sign and aluminium signs ensure a long lasting result without adding unnecessary weight. Because the sheets are manufactured larger than Colorbond (Signwhite), a standard sign, like the one above can be made in...
