Garden Centres, Outdoor Retail Signage & POS Displays - Your One-Stop Shop!


Signage, POS Display and Vehicle Graphics for Garden Centres & Outdoor Retail


Garden Centres & Outdoor Retail - Signage & Display

We've worked with many garden centres and plant nurseries over the years, producing seasonal display prints, as well as long-term site signage. We are able to offer a one-stop-shop that includes graphic design services, print and production, as well as local installation. We can ship UK-wide and internationally, so your business can look its best through all seasons, come rain or shine!

We know that specialist signs, POS, and other forms of display need to be custom to your brand, setting, and seasonality, so have created this handy blog to give you a snapshot of what we can offer to boost your outdoor-focused business. Any custom or highly bespoke signage we are also happy to discuss! Read on to find out about display options, small format printing, vehicle livery, seasonal displays and more!

Creating Solutions specialty is print & signage

We've been creating signage for over 20-years, and have amassed a brilliant staff team with over 30-years experience in the print, production and installation sector. Operating in Devon, the county famed for beautiful landscapes, scenery, and greenery, we understand your customers need to produce that same beauty at home, so have been expanding and developing our range of products for garden centres and retail nurseries to improve and add to your POS and signage. We are able to offer the hardware for point-of-sale displays, but specialise in the custom prints that go alongside these.

Signage for all seasons

Working in the outdoor sector, we understand that your business and products go through all weather fronts, and your point-of-sale signage and displays need to be able to do the same. Any product be it indoor or outdoor will come with a weatherproof rating, as well as a warranty or guarantee to cover its intended use. You may have outdoor areas, polytunnels, an indoor shopping area, as well as a cafe and customer amenities on site. Some areas of your business will go through monthly and seasonal changeovers, so your displays need to keep up!

Cut Vinyl Adhesive Stickers for Plant Pots and Containers

Welcome your visitors into your business with custom printed and cut graphics on large containers or plant pots at your entrance!

Our cut vinyl sticker graphics are made of a hardwearing, high-performance and high-tack vinyl that can stand through all weather fronts, and is laminated for additional protection and colour vibrancy. These can be applied to any smooth, flat surface, and display messaging, branding or your logo like the image here (right). We can produce stickers in any colour, or custom print to your requirements. This type of vinyl has brilliant colour density and uses a solvent-free adhesive and has a 4-year durability rating making it perfect for long-term display indoors or outdoors.

Aluminium Composite Board Signage

A favourite print board used for a large range of indoor and outdoor long-term signage.

Our ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) is a favourite for indoor and outdoor signage due to its longevity, budget-friendly pricing, and can be mounted to almost all surfaces. It is lightweight, and when teamed with a printed vinyl that is matt laminated, can last up to 7-years outdoors. We offer a Eco-Friendly 2-Year fully recyclable ACM option, as well as a Standard 5-Year, and 7-Year ACM to cover all time-frames for your display. We are also able to bend the material to create ACM Tray Signs for internal and external signage!

Washingpool Farm used ACM extensively across their site for wayfinding, signage and to display their business and the on-site cafes opening times. Click the image right, and far right below to read about their installations. Grove Nurseries have also used ACM throughout their Garden Centre, click on the image far left below to read about their custom ACM creations.

Eco-Friendly Short-Term Display and POS Boards

Perfect for seasonal changes for your bedding plants, POS displays and special offers. Our eco-friendly print medias are made for the those with a green thumb.

We wanted to make sure our eco-friendly print solutions rival their PVC counterparts, not only on print quality, but also on price! Triaprint Board to the naked eye feels and looks like plastic, but is an excellent environmentally friendly alternative to the use of foam PVC, foam board, and other rigid plastics for displays and graphic printing. Xanita Board is fast becoming a favourite for temporary POS displays and is made from a paper-faced cardboard that can be cut to make 3D shapes like these 'toblerone' style post displays (see right). Both can be used indoors and outdoors, so is perfect for your short-term polytunnel, seasonal displays, or POS stands.

Retail POS Displays & Printing

We've gone through some of the larger display areas to consider, but now lets talk about your small format prints - the ones right in the customers eye-line.

Shelving strips are a perfect small advertising space to add some colour, messaging, or product discounts. We can print individual strips, or meters of it to cover a large area. These can be a permanent feature, or your designs can change with the season or product on display. If you have affiliations or partnerships with local producers, artists or goods creators, we can also provide the signage and display to mark out their space.

We can custom print sale hangers and tags, or produce a standard template for these.
