    Looking for a supplier of large fascia lightboxes for above shop. Standard sort of thing, silver trim with opal acrylic slide in panels. Cheapest possible (customers words not mine)

    My previous supplier is no more, can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    Not telling you how to run your business, but when a customer says "cheap as possible" alarm bells ring.

    Realisticly how much do they have to spend? No point spending your time trying to give the customer an illuminated sign for $300, when it’s verging on impossible. If they have a 300 quid budget, offer them a 300 quid sign… or walk away.

    But in answer to your question –

    Northern sign cases
    Cherwell Sign Supplies

    It’s for a construction firm. They only want cheap as they’re putting it up on site behind a hoarding. Essentially its disposable so they’re not looking for anything fancy.

    Thanks for the referrals. Will get on to them shortly.

    Fair enough, but the cost will be the cost.

    Bit like those customers who want a cheap correx sign, because it’s only being used once… I’m afraid the correx, ink, material and time doesn’t come any cheaper because of that 😆

    Depending on the size a flex face may be cheaper/easier
