Checking work

Our ‘WOW’-factor is getting work out fast and often filling in the gaps in a vague brief using our experience of film. While this may be great in most circumstances, with no time for proofing, there are occasions when things go wrong and with haste mistakes can creep in. For this reason we urge you please to check all work before arriving on set the next morning to find missing items or other peoples work!

Vinyl ‘damage’

Applying vinyl to expensive surfaces like cars, choppers and boats, is not without risk! While we would use quality materials and take great care with application and removal in these circumstances, damage can occur and Sign Bomb cannot be held responsible. Vinyl can also leave glue residue on surfaces and be problematic to remove – especially if lighting department have left a 4K close to the surface ‘cooking’ the material to the substrate. In these circumstances additional charges for removal and cleaning of glue may be incurred.
