New Recycled Shop Sign

It really is about time we had a new sign on the shop front

this shop sign has to say we are about recycling

We have both been looking at the shop branding since we sold off the Recycling Collection Service business last year, this shop has to say we are about recycling i have been saying to Jo.
We currently have the corporate office style lettering on a plain white plastic board, well thats ok for recycling waste services but doesnt inspire excitement for customers looking for beautiful homeware, gifts and crafts!

Jo recently done a facebook post on recycling pallets into furniture, so theres a great supply of underused resource that i could use! The pallet wood i recently used to remake a metal framed table in a beach hut style with each short piece of timber a different colour. This effect would look great above the shopfront window in our shop colours of Lime Green, Berry and Chocolate Brown. These colours we use in the shop to represent the types of product we sell -Recycled(green) Organic(brown) and Fairtrade(purple)

I have begun to cut the letters from old pine furniture as the pallet wood is not wide enough, and they will be mounted proud of the boards to stand out. Jo had the idea of fixing them with bedsprings so they move in the wind, and i suggested that i could backlight them with a Solar Powered LED string.

Looking forward to seeing it now!
