Labels to dry for

iTrap Fire Testing Technology Image

At Southern United we love to make an equipment label for a pioneering industrial gadget. The iTrap is a new device from Fire Testing Technology Ltd, designed to remove the moisture from combustible gas lines ready for analysis. Based in Sussex, not far from us in East Grinstead, FTT Ltd have been creating innovative fire testing instruments for nearly 30 years and are world leaders in their field. Our drawing office produced the artwork in Illustrator, time is taken to match the required colours, in this case a pantone, to the exact shade that the customer needs.

A digital cutting file is also created at this point. Printed on polyester in a gauge of 0.13mm, they are digitally produced by a Roland 330 UV machine. Once the labels are printed we apply 3m 9471 adhesive backing on a laminating machine. To cut the labels we use a machine called a Summa which relies on sensors to calculate the measurements of the labels. We then cut away any excess material and the products are inspected and checked by our quality control team. Every item we create is a bespoke label or nameplate designed to look and perform perfectly in the desired setting and conditions.

Chicken and Duck Heaven on Earth!

If this Spring, you are walking in a West Country field and see the most beautiful Chicken Coop, or walk past a pond and see some very satisfied ducks basking on a Floating Duck Lodge, it most certainly is a “Flyte so Fancy” creation,  a Dorset family run wood working enterprise.

Phillip and Anne Weymouth, and their Dorset based team of craftsmen (and women), build and decorate the most extraordinary range of eco-friendly Poultry Coops, and we all know there’s nothing quite like keeping our feathered friends happy.

Of course, to make sure potential new customers know how to contact the company, an elegant oval green and gold aluminium label was needed. And Phillip asked Southern United to provide them, and now these long lasting labels adorn his luxury avian homes.

So, whatever you create, isn’t it about time you got all your ducks in a row, with a durable, weatherproof elegantly designed label, from Southern United?

Now that’s a shed load of labels!

Established 30 years ago, Elfords of Chichester is now the market leader in the manufacture and supply of Garden Sheds, Summer Houses and Wooden Workshops in West Sussex and Hampshire. Tony Harris, the Managing Director and son of the founder, says “You’ll be amazed by the number of enquiries we get for Beach Huts from people walking past the ones we supplied years ago”. The durable and ultra-long lasting aluminium labels Tony describes as “cheap advertising”, with the orders they provide him with year after year.

Tony chose Southern United to supply another 1000 labels for 2017 as a repeat purchase, having found these signs very effective. We wish him and his team in Chichester the very best for 2017.

Our friendly sales team at Southern United are happy to answer any queries or quote you for some “cheap advertising”, though of course we prefer the phrase “Very competitively priced”.

“Forget Me Not” Labels. PPK Aldershot Case Study

For 16 years the team at PPK Aldershot have been manufacturing hydraulic hoses and equipment, as well as refurbishing cylinders, separators and pumps on a nationwide basis. With all of this work an efficient system was needed so that customers knew how to get in touch for refurbishments and new parts. In the words of Mark Staples, CEO of PPK: “keeping track of our equipment and maintaining contact details of PPK refurbished equipment is an essential part of the marketing of the PKK business”.

Southern United is happy to provide PPK with tough, durable Melinex labels, which we have printed to meet their exacting requirements. In this particular instance it was decided that a polyester material would work well, and the details of this can be seen below.

“Don’t let me down”, Britain’s Oldest Umbrella Manufacturer!

When Richard Ince, the managing director of a 6th Generation, 210 year old Umbrella manufacturer needed to change his metal label supplier, Southern United was delighted to help out. The company is based within a stone’s throw of its beginnings in Spitalfields, just around the corner from Liverpool Street Station, London. And the Square Mile is still their biggest market where they supply many professional firms and businesses.

With a new export order of premium branded umbrellas due to be shipped to USA in 10 days, any delay was not an option. Richard needed help ASAP with 100 units of formed aluminium etched and then filled with black ink to complete the order.

With Southern United always holding a wide range of metals in stock, we managed to supply the highly polished anodic aluminium Paul Stuart branded labels, in time for the deadline to ship to USA and the Christmas Season.

We wish Richard the very best as he breaks into the North American Umbrella market.

If you would like more information on our metal labels or any other type of labels then get in touch with our friendly team today. Southern United are able to provide a huge range of labels for every kind of use and environment.
