Wait, GKs does sign-writing?
Yes we do. We've been offering graphics and sign-writing services since the late 80s. However more recently we've turbo-charged what's on offer as well as giving graphics it's own dedicated area in the shop.
GK's Graphics is now a powerhouse - with Keith and Clare providing their years of expertise and enthusiasm to get the job done at the highest quality.
No minimum orders, we pride ourselves in being able to supply even the smallest job. A single sticker is no problem. We can offer anything from a joke sticker for your windscreen to full shop front signage and everything in between.

How much will it cost me?
Click into our services above for an approximate price guide for the types of graphics and signage we offer.
It's impossible to give an exact figure. Every job and vehicle is different, and we price everything on a job by job basis.
Adding vinyl lettering to the side of a Mini Cooper is different to that on a long wheel base Transit.
Prices can be as low as £2 for a simple sticker, but the best thing to do is to contact us and we'll let you know as there are many factors that influence our prices:
- Design time for making your artwork print or cut ready.
- Type of vinyl i.e premium vinyls such as chrome or glitter effect
- Weeding time i.e a scripted serif typeface is more time consuming to weed than a block sans serif typeface
- Manual labour time involved i.e board cutting and laminating
Above all else - We always look to make it as cost effective as possible for you and we'll often give a range of options that will suit most budgets.
How does it work?
We operate a first-come-first-served-basis. When a job comes in - no matter how big or small - it is added to our job list.
Our staff complete each job in the order in which it comes in. We have found this to be the quickest and fairest way to get your jobs back to you.
Fill in our job sheet below to get a quote and get yourself on the list! This form is used to develop a brief for your job. Please provide as much detail as possible including sending any logos or artwork. Not only does this get your place on the list quicker, it will save you money. We will charge design time for any change in design direction if not mentioned at the outset.
For example: You want a picture of a dog. Unless you're happy with any dog, any colour and any size - Tell us exactly what you want. A brown Border Collie, sitting facing the camera, 200mm tall and proportionally wide. Even better still, send us the exact photo you want.
Artwork where required, is to be provided in .EPS or .PDF format in lossless 300dpi. We will make you aware if your artwork isn't suitable quality. We can offer design services to get your artwork to printable quality where we can. If artwork supplied is not of a high enough resolution or quality and you choose to go ahead, we are not responsible for how it may look once gone to print.
Once the brief has been set this will allow a quote to be issued for the work you have requested. This will include design time, manual labour, materials and where requested installation.
Step 3 (if required):
Sometimes a proof is necessary. This is where we send you a visual representation of the work you have requested. It is your responsibility to check this proof, in particular reviewing the following points:
• Colours. Where print is used, the proof will print exactly as you see it in the proof unless discussed otherwise. For cut vinyl, our colours are available to view in store on the rolls.
• Sizes. Please ensure the sizes look in the correct proportions. If you have specified sizes, these will be the sizes you receive.
• Details. Are the text details correct including spelling and grammar?
• Are arrows (if included) pointing in the right direction?
Please note: Whilst we're happy to change a proof free of charge if something doesn't work for you. I.e green text instead of yellow text. Any client directed changes in design direction may incur additional charges after the brief has been agreed. Generally after 2-3 proofs we will ask you to consider the design you set out initially and make you aware of any additional charges.
Once you have approved the proof then we are not liable for any errors. Reprints, redesigns and re-cuts will be chargeable. If you have noticed an error, make us aware straight away for mistakes to be amended. There will be no extra charge for this.
If you wish to proceed we will then ask you to pay a small deposit to confirm your place - then sit back, relax, we'll let you know when your job is done!
