Custom Tension Fabric System Prints and Frames

custom prints and frames

Did you know we can provide Tension Fabric System custom prints and frames for businesses? 

We have recently installed prints in the Balsall Fish Bar show in the image above. The colours really pop out.

The prints are very easy to change, you can do it yourself. There’s no need for any special equipment or shop-fitters. You can then have prints for special events or can be seasonal.

The prints can also be taken down and washed, so perfect for public areas with lots of foot traffic.

Our Tension Fabric System custom prints are perfect for business premises to liven up a dull office, reception or hallway. They’re great for community centres and public buildings as they offer a cheap way of bringing life to a room.

If you’re interested in custom prints for your business just contact us on  024 7669 4466 or email and we’ll discuss your requirements with you.

Printed School Signage

Top Cat for Top School

school-signage-printingWe couldn’t resist showing off the results of some recent work Acorn completed for Hodge Hill College in Birmingham.

The initial request was to personalise 50 Hi Vis vests for the students, which of course we can do in our sleep.

We were then asked if we could signs or stands because the school had a interesting requirement: could we print two 6ft tall self-standing Top Cat cutouts?

Of course the answer to customer requests is always yes. So the Acorn team looked at how we could complete this order and, lo and behold, here they are.

if you have any unusual signage or promotional requirements then why not get in contact with Acorn? We can get things done as fast as you can say “Officer Dibble”.

Tension Fabric System Displays

Totally Flexible Signage

TFS (Tension Fabric System) displays are a great way to have large vibrant sprints, that can be swapped over in a short space of time.

The system uses an aluminium frame and an easy-to-use gripping mechanism that tensions the fabric skins. The skins are printed using sublimation, which means brighter and more vibrant colours, and can be rolled or folded for easy transportation and storage.

Tension Fabric Display printingTFS displays are an excellent solution where signage needs to be changed.  Shops, exhibition halls, conference venues etc. are the early adopters of this approach and Acorn has already been busy printing skins for use at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

As an example Acorn provided the graphics for the IGD Poundland Trade Briefing at the Ricoh just last week. We can print new fabric skins with promotional messages and brand images for a very fast changeover.  In between trade shows and events the arena’s TFS frames are populated with skins that we have printed for Wasps Rugby Club.

Excited about the possibilities of TFS displays for your venue or workspace?  Get in touch with Acorn today to discuss your requirements.

Wasps Shop Signage

Club Shop Converted

Fresh from providing a range of printed and embroidered garments for Wasps RFC , Acorn was drafted in for another important assignment.

The club has been upgrading its shop at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry and needed new signage to help complete the transformation.

Acorn has the design capability, the signage production capability and the installation resources to handle a wide variety of retail and trade requirements.  Since Duncan Horlor, Acorn’s Manufacturing Director, is also a rugby fan this was an assignment not to miss.

Juicing Up Jade Technology

Jade Technology's Warwick store displaying window signage created by Acorn PrintingJade Technology based in Warwick is on the up and up, and we are delighted to be supporting its stellar progress.

The company is a specialist electrical retailer with a fantastic range of domestic appliances, TVs and computers. Best known in the Warwick area for their distinctive and very successful showroom in Market Street, Jade’s online business has also taken off, which means that their delivery vans are now to be seen criss-crossing the UK.

Acorn got involved initially to create shop window signage when Jade upgraded its branding. The finished work looked so good that we were asked back to provide vehicle graphics for the delivery vans, create signage for a new warehouse on the Budbrooke Industrial Estate, and kit the retail and warehouse teams out in some smart new workwear.

Mick, Jade’s Retail Manager, is really positive:

“We got just what we wanted from David Guice and the Acorn team. The service was great and we are really pleased with the impact that all of the signage, window graphics and promotional workwear has had on customers’ perceptions of us.

We are simply pleased to be supporting another growing business.

The Cutest Signs We Have Ever Produced

Red Panda Symbol

Acorn Printing has provided signs and banners for many different types of organisation from shops to racecourses.  A recent project for a Chinese Restaurant in Coventry takes the prize for being the cutest though.


Stanley Wo, owner of Red Panda Restaurant, located in Market Way in Coventry city centre, wanted to spruce up the frontage of his restaurant to build on the the success of his new buffet lunch and dinner service.

New signage, window graphic and banners for Red Panda Chinese Restaurant

After talking to his business contacts Stanley was given Acorn’s name as a referral.  A check of our work with other clients was enough to convince him that he’d made the right choice.  David Guice, our signage expert, conducted an initial site inspection and recommended a mix of internal and external signs. window graphics and banners.

What caught David’s eye was that cute little animal:

“I knew we needed to make more of the Red Panda.  It’s an ideal graphic because it attracts attention and it encompasses both the Chinese connection and a more modern image than normal.”

The completed work now makes the restaurant really stand out in the shopping precinct and has helped Stanley to increase his drop in trade, particularly at lunchtimes.

“I am really pleased with the work. The new restaurant signs strike a balance between showing people that we have a brand new dining offer while still displaying our traditional Chinese heritage.  And, of course, everybody loves our Red Panda symbol.”

 You may not have the cutest possible symbol to go with your business but Acorn can always find a way of helping you project your image as strongly as possible onto the High Street.
