Allen Signs and Elpeeko have partnered up to complete a project commissioned by the National Trust. The two companies have over-hauled the signage for Tattershall Castle, UK, with Allen Signs also producing 12 audio boards for the site.

The audio guides were made from acrylic panels mounted onto bespoke ash timber plinths and have been designed to help the visitors imagine the castle in its medieval prime.

 "Our main focus is on design and print but sometimes we get asked to work on projects which require other capabilities such as producing signage," explains Clare Griffiths, art director at Elpeeko. "This is why we often team up with businesses such as Allen Signs who can provide the necessary expertise, and we look forward to working with them again in the future."

Glen Merryweather, sales and marketing manager at Allen Signs, summarises the experience by stating: "It's been a pleasure to work on the Tattershall Castle project. It is a beautiful building which is of great importance to the county."
