Signbox stands tall in the City of London with HP Latex 800W printers

The project won gold in the Interior Decor category at the 2024 UK Sign Awards

Using the HP Latex 800W machines ensured not only a high-quality print on all graphics but also offered a sustainable element to the project

Surrey-based signage solutions provider Signbox has revealed how its HP Latex 800W printers, which were installed in the summer of 2023 by approved HP reseller Colyer have helped it to create a series of eye-catching interior graphics for 22 Bishopgate, the tallest building in the City of London.

Signbox specialises in architectural signage, partnering with clients on all manner of sign projects for buildings around the UK. It began working with Multiplex, the global construction company behind 22 Bishopsgate, back in 2019, producing a wide range of graphics and wayfinding signs for the 65-floor building.

Among the many applications delivered by Signbox on the 22 Bishopsgate project were experiential wall and ceiling graphics, with these being installed in September 2023 at the entrance to the site’s special public viewing experience. Located at the very top of the building, Horizon 22 is London’s highest free viewing platform, offering 300-degree views of the city, showcasing its most iconic landmarks.

The entrance to Horizon 22 is now decorated with stunning graphics printed in house at Signbox on its HP Latex 800W printers, some of the most recent additions to its production setup.

Using the HP Latex 800W machines ensured not only a high-quality print on all graphics but also offered a sustainable element to the project, given that all HP Latex printers use HP Latex ink, which is significantly kinder to the environment than solvent, eco-solvent and UV inks.

In addition, the reliability of the duo of HP Latex 800W printers and their ability to deliver quality and accurate prints, meant Signbox was able to meet the time-sensitive criteria of the project, delivering and installing the graphics on time for the client.

“We enjoyed many successes on this project,” Greg Bailey – Senior Project Manager from Signbox said. “We achieved all our self-imposed KPI targets set out at the start of the project and completed our works snag free at the point of handover.

“Due to the dynamic nature of the project, it required us to be hyper agile, reacting to changes in the design of the built environment as the project progressed. We managed to achieve all client variations and deliver these within the main project period.

“The final finishing detail of our work is outstanding; this was the opinion of the client team as well as ourselves.”

And it’s not just Signbox and the client team that were impressed with the quality and detail of the installation. The project has also just won gold in the Interior Décor category at the 2024 UK Sign Awards.
