WHAT WE DO
DPI UK Ltd is a Midlands based, UK manufacturer.
Essentially the name behind many of the brands, we supply soft signage display products via a network of trade printers and agencies. We manufacture aluminium frames, structures and lightboxes for specific use with tensioned fabric graphics.
Our manufacturing plant and showroom is based just outside East Midlands Airport and Donington Race Circuit, very close to the rapidly expanding M1 / A50 junction.
The soft signage display products we manufacture are used widely in retail environments such as airports and stores. Additionally, they are used in office environments, exhibitions and even in the home. Nothing is standard, we make everything from scratch, exactly to the dimensions required, using the widest selection of aluminium profiles in the industry.
We know our stuff when it comes to aluminium frames and lightboxes because this is all we do, day in and day out. We don’t dilute our offering with any other types of display product and as such, we are masters of our trade.
Soft signage has revolutionised the graphics and retail display industry. Thanks to rapid progress with printer and ink technology, it is possible to print a wide range of flexible fabrics with colourful imagery.
The printed fabric images are fitted with a silicon edging strip that is pushed into the recess of each frame face by the person assembling the unit.
More often than not, they can be fitted by almost anybody. This makes the whole proposition much more attractive because fabric imagery can be replaced quickly and easily without the need for fitting teams saving both time and cost.
Delivery of replacement fabric graphics is also much simpler because they can be rolled or folded unlike traditional solid panel display media.
Taking all this into account, it’s easy to see why soft signage has become so popular and is revolutionising the way graphic displays are designed.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Directors Paul Tomlinson and Sandra Wiggins have over 20 years of experience in the display industry between them
Starting from humble beginnings back in October 2014, DPI (UK) Ltd was initially a UK distributor of fabric faced lightboxes for a European manufacturer. As the soft signage offering expanded into frames and canopies, they quickly realised that to meet the infamously tight deadlines in the display sector, manufacturing in house was the only way forward.
This proved to be the correct decision – very soon after they invested in two state of the art mitre saws, board cutting equipment, electrical safety testing equipment and huge racks for 6 metre profile lengths, the business expanded so quickly, they immediately required much more space.
In March 2017, DPI moved to much larger premises allowing them to manufacture everything in house, this in turn slashed lead times, minimising costs and enabling pre-build testing on larger projects.
DPI are obsessed with customer service, we operate in a competitive industry but we remain at the forefront because we ensure that every customer has a positive experience. We quote very quickly, we keep in touch when there are problems and we go the limit of our powers to ensure each and every job leaves us in time and on brief.
