Customer engagement from concept to completion is an essential part of all projects at Butterfield Signs.

Last summer, McDonald’s tasked us with helping them develop their Click & Serve signposts into what they are today.

The process itself involved multiple testing scenarios and associated design tweaks.

Working closely with our client and in line with the official launch of their new ordering platform, we were able to manufacture in bulk and deploy in a timely manner their final product.

If you need help with the design, engineering, research, and development, or implementation of your next concept call us on 01274 722 244.

Take a look at our new Butterfield Signs / Virgin Money case study.

The launch of this video marks the completion of an exciting six-month rebrand project.

In this time we have transformed over 100 former Yorkshire Bank locations into the Virgin Money brand.

Manufacture involved an eclectic mix of in-house traditional cottage industry skills and new fully automated technologies.

Signage included external fascia’s and projecting signs as well as internal built-up illuminated letters suspended behind glass facades, graphics, lightboxes, faux neon, wayfinding and specialist bespoke associated product.

The video captures the rollout in its three key stages – build, fix, show.

Digital signage is fast becoming one of the most sought-after technologies in the signage sector.

While traditional signs will always have their place, the constantly changing qualities of digital signage are undoubtedly having a major impact on the direction of the industry.

In conjunction with our trade body ISA-UK, we explain how the ever-evolving nature of digital signage is making this technology an increasingly popular choice among marketers and brands - click here for the article.

Indeed, its increasing popularity has seen us taking on an increasing number and a wider variety of digital projects.

For example, we continue to roll out new digital menu displays to the entire McDonald’s Drive-Thru estate across the UK and Ireland.

We are also currently working on a huge digital signage installation at Canary Wharf with our crews now well underway installing the 132 metre long LED light panel display.

These are just two of the current digital projects we are currently involved with. 

We know the drill when it comes to digital signage…so if you would like to chat with us about your requirements, drop us a call on 01274 722 244 or email us at

Butterfield Signs’ digital signage offer extends beyond supply, installation and commissioning.

Our CMS allows you to upload content/images, even set your campaign’s launch time and date. After that, the software will take care of the rest.

While some clients like to manage the CMS themselves, others would like our support.

Another tailored area is our design services. Depending on our client’s requirements and in house capabilities, we can create their content and animation too.

In other words, you pick and choose the service level you receive from us. Have a look at the content we have recently created for our clients.

With regards to digital signage itself, we are currently working on the installation of one of our largest LED display unit to date on one of Canary Wharf’s iconic towers.

It will stretch a whopping 132 metres in length, wrapping around 2 elevations of the Bank of America building.

Our crews are just in the process of finalising the installation of the bespoke steel support frames, with LED light panels to come soon after – see below photo.

The site is currently shrouded in scaffolding, with the big reveal expected in the next few weeks!

Watch this space and we’ll keep you updated…it’s going to be a real show stopper!

As per the image above, we’ve pulled together a little taster of our totem works here at Butterfield Signs for you to enjoy.

We operate our own remote, dedicated and specialist heavy works factory to facilitate this type of work.

This factory includes some of the latest technologies in welding, shearing, cutting and general fabrication and is supported by overhead automated heavy crane lifting equipment to manoeuvre product between large manufacturing work areas.

We offer the highest quality in process, product and service inclusive of coded welding and use of materials fully compliant with CE and UKCA standards, providing our clients and contractors with total reassurance.

Our finishing includes galvanising and specialist powder coating applied by our newly installed and fully automated line, inclusive of Plaforization pre-treatment.

All of the above means we are able to offer a vast range of product even extending beyond our normal totem, monolith, pole and other associate sign products for retailers as a means of main identification.

Other specialist works include various forms of support steelwork, associated ordering point product, vehicle height restrictors and canopies for edge of town food retail drive-thru outlets.

Also worth mentioning, we have recently produced a number of standalone totem units in remote locations illuminated by the use of Solar Energy, eliminating extensive costs in the running of electrical connections.

The solar photovoltaic panels can be discreetly fitted to totem legs or can be mounted remote on a fabricated support. Solar power is managed with specialist technology to ensure maximum life expectancy from the battery-powered units and also controlling unit light up times.

We have successfully migrated over from our previous ISO 18001 accreditation, which was recognised only as a British standard.

ISO 45001 is an international standard for health and safety, developed to prevent work-related injury and ill-health as well as provide safe and healthy workplaces.

Our new status means we are now part of a global health and safety management system that crosses geographical, political, economic, commercial and social boundaries.

This world benchmark will not only simplify and assist with all our local, regional and national supply but also our overseas activity as we work to a single standard with the management of our occupational health and safety.

An additional benefit to us will be the enhancement of our environmental, social and governance profile because ISO 45001 supports the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals by also demonstrating a commitment to equality practices. 

The health and safety of everyone we come into contact with – our employees, customers, the general public – is essential to Butterfield Signs.

If you have an upcoming signage project and need the reassurance all your health and safety needs can be met in full please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01274 722 244 or email us at
