A Wall Display on Wood for Symondsbury Estate Visitor Centre


Vinyl Overlay for the Visitor Centre at Symondsbury Estate


Symondsbury Estate

Set in the beautiful Dorset countryside just a stone’s throw from the Jurassic Coast, Symondsbury Estate in Bridport offers a truly rural experience to all. From climbing up Colmer's Hill, to exploring the Home&Garden shop on site, the estate offers an eclectic mix of activities, events and rentable spaces for weddings and  celebrations, as well as camping and cottages to enjoy a getaway.

We have worked with the Symondbury Estate, and surrounding businesses that partner with them on many display and signage projects, so know their vision, branding, and style very well.

Welcoming Rural Art Feature for Visitors

Large display areas demand a highly visual installation, especially when making that first impression for visitors. The Symondsbury Estate Team and on-site businesses have always managed to seamlessly coordinate their branding and display pieces with an earthy and luxurious feel.

We have previously assisted the team by creating and installing several signage pieces and wall art, including the a wooden hanging signs for Home&Garden and a custom ACM Tray Sign for Estate Produce. This natural colour scheme and feel helps their displays blend into their beautiful location whilst also being instantly recognisable and welcoming.

We have also previously had the pleasure of creating custom coffee stencils for the cafe to engage the customer experience and raise it to the next level.

Being so well customed to the Estates needs allowed us on this occasion to really explore the options available, and recommend products and concepts that we knew would go above and beyond their expectations. For this piece, a sliding door sits in the Visitor Centre, beckoning customers through onto the estate. Measuring almost 2.5m square with different width returns on each side, the print needed to be perfectly centred to allow the design to seamlessly flow around each edge. Symondsbury designed and sent their watercolour, hand-drawn style piece to us, which we then can proof and scale to fit the space exactly. (See Proof Sheet Below).

Working with the wooden surface, we chose a high performance high-tack vinyl in a matt finish to create the piece from. This is then sectioned and cut into strips, not only for safer transportation and easier application, but if one part is damaged, it can easily be replaced without needing to re-do the whole task. This vinyl also has air release qualities, allowing the wood to breathe under the vinyl without sweating, contracting or expanding too much.


Large Format Print is our specialty!

Creating eye-catching interior and exterior displays that wow your visitors and delight managers is our passion. We wouldn't call ourselves specialists if we did not have some of the most skilled team members in the South West, or one of the largest arrays of print medias at our disposal. Being able to see the process through concept, design, proof, and final installation is how we make sure our quality throughout is second-to-none, and you get nothing less than the best.

Working with Symondsbury Estate is always a pleasure, and to see their next project come through our doors is always either a learning curve, a new product inquiry or a new method of application. That's why we write these blogs and harp about our clients so often - you make us better, and the realms of display options wider.

Working with vinyl is a fickle business, especially when applied to  a surface that also needs heavy consideration like wood. We love the design and brightness this new installation now offers the Estate Visitor Centre, and look forward to what we can create together next!
