Laser Cut Acrylic Sign for Local Scout Group

Branded laser cut acrylic sign for a 1st Lee-on-the-Solent Scout Group.

With The Scout Association rolling out a new set of branding guidelines, 1st Lee-on-the-Solent scout group were looking for a replacement for their main hut sign.

1810 were happy to assist and have produced a layered acrylic sign compliant with the new, very detailed, Scout Association branding guidelines. We’re really happy with the clean & minimalist look and were very pleased to get so many compliments from passers by as we were installing it.

1st Lee are a very friendly group within our home town and are always looking for volunteers/helpers to join their team. If you can spare any time, from 2 hours a month to 2 hours a week, there’s a wide variety of roles available. Please get in touch with them via their facebook page for more info.

Branded Bamboo USB Stick and Cases

Branded, laser engraved USB sticks and cases for a local photography business.

Its always nice to help support another local business. Recently founded, Simon Sims Photography was looking to create a premium quality branded USB stick and case to offer as a part of his photography packages. Each USB stick will be personalised for the end client’s photo shoot and bears his website URL on the reverse side.

After subtly modifying Simon’s logo to make it more suitable for laser engraving, 1810 were able to turn an already very well made bamboo USB stick and case into a really high quality souvenir product to compliment the attention to detail that Simon offers in his work. We’re really pleased with how this has turned out and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.

Laser Cut Acrylic Sign for Miammo

Branded laser cut acrylic sign for a screen printing company in Yeovil.

Miammo are a fast growing family run screen printing company selling various items online. They needed some new signage for their recently aquired, bigger location in Yeovil.

1810 vectorised their main logo and produced proofs for the owners to approve. Once agreed, the various logo elements were then laser cut using a range of different thickness acrylic sheets to retain the layered aspect to their sign with the coloured pieces appearing to be behind the text.

All pieces were affixed to a contrasting white acrylic backing ready for mounting on their building’s exterior.

Personalised Spitfire Flight Mememto

As a Lee-on-the-Solent based company we often have the pleasure of watching people enjoying flights in the Spitfire TR9 that is frequently operated out of the local Lee-on-Solent (HMS Deadalus) airfield.

We’ve had requests from a number of people who have previously taken pleasure flights in the aircraft that wanted a more personalised memento of the experience, something that can be hung on the wall for all to see.

With this in mind, 1810 have designed a custom laser cut 2D wooden model of the actual spitfire used. This has been incorporated into a certificate which can be personalised with a client’s Name, date and length of flight performed. It also bears the outline of the Lee-on-Solent airfield along with some information about the airfield and specifications of the Spitfire TR9 aircraft.

The piece is A4 sized and framed in a classic dark wood with Golden inlay frame. Other frame options can be made available upon request.

If you would like to purchase your own one of these, we would be more than happy to oblige. Please use our Contact form or the telephone number below to discuss.

MAKE Gosport Building Sign

Custom produced Laser Cut signage for a new local Makerspace.

MAKE Gosport were in the final stages of getting ready to open their doors in August ’20 and needed an exterior sign with their branding.

1810 vectorised their main logo and produced proofs for the owners to approve. Once proofs were agreed following a few minor alterations, the pieces were then laser cut ready for mounting on a backboard to fit the existing sign holder on the front of the building.

Next, all pieces were painted and affixed in place before receiving a clear coat for weather protection and final installation on the building.

Custom Carved Named Sign

CNC carved named sign to announce the name of a new child in a unique way at a baby shower.

The piece was made by forming a board from a series of Oak strips glued and planed together. The lettering was engraved using a CNC router using a disney style font. The corners were rounded off to give a more natual appearance and the whole piece was coated with Tung oil to give a strong & durable finish with a deeper natural colour. A wall mount was added to allow the piece to be enjoyed for many years to come.
