Site Survey

Bolton Arena invited Cornerstone to survey the site for installation of new external signage and banners following a new sponsorship deal with local pizza production company Stateside Foods, a world leading player in their market.

Cornerstone’s team worked closely with the Bolton Arena marketing and sales teams to work through the brief, specification and best material specifications, whilst also assessing what resources would be needed to produce and install the signage.



Following a successful bid, Cornerstone were instructed to commence the project, which involved a large scale strip out and clean of all old signage and vinyl graphics, ready to accept the new signage produced in-house here at Cornerstone.

The signs for Bolton Arena were produced on a high quality, long life 5-7 year polymeric white gloss vinyl printed with UV stable inks and a high gloss laminate for image definition, vibrancy and longevity. A range of totem signs, outdoor banners and correx signs were also produced on long life substrates.

A large run of windows covering the entrance area of the arena featured a grey blackout adhesive to prevent glare from the sun entering the building or washing out any graphic prints. The blackout adhesive enhances the colours and visual appeal of the signs.

Our production department worked over the course of two weeks to deliver the project, ensuring that each and every print was run at a minimum of 16 passes, ensuring high vibrancy images, colours and a long lasting print that will keep the Stateside brand centre stage and performing for a long time to come.

Installation & Outcome

Installation of the Stateside brand took careful consideration and health and safety and access measures to ensure all elements of the projects were delivered in a safe manner, allowing the arena to remain open whilst keeping the public safe.

Our team of installers worked over the course of six days to deliver the entire project, with the largest sign being an impressive 26m wide and 4.5m high. Each panel was matched accurately to ensure the best possible impression from road side viewing.

The client has shown great delight in the finished result, and felt the working relationship with Cornerstone, and the help and support provided has generated an enjoyable, and high quality outcome. Further work is planned for 2019 to continue the good work carried out.
