Bespoke Playground Markings for Primary Schools, Nurseries and more
Alongside our fantastic range of colourful, thermoplastic playground games and markings, we are also able to design and provide custom school logos & bespoke playground markings. Our talented, in-house graphic design team are on hand to take on your ideas and create custom-made markings for your school or nursery.
School logo markings can be a great way to enhance the welcome experience at your school and brighten up your reception area. Adding personalisation to the playground, they can support a good reputation for your school or nursery, and also express a sense of community to all staff, teachers, parents and students.
Positioning your school logo in the centre of a sports court, like Whitgreave Primary School did, enhances the team spirit and also helps to represent your school when playing against teams from other schools and groups.
As well as school logos, we can also work with you to create other designs such as friendship stops. These are great for promoting a caring behaviour amongst pupils in the playground and helping children to make new friends. Not to mention, the bright colours in the rainbow design can really cheer up a lunch break on an otherwise gloomy day.
Any of the designs you see on our website are completely customisable. Whether you are interested in the design being in a different colour, shape, size, or language, we can alter the playground marking to meet your school’s needs.
From adding your school colours to including your school name as part of the playground activity, we have all the options you need. Alternatively, check out our range of popular custom playground markings.
Bespoke Playground Markings
What is the typical cost range for bespoke playground markings, and how is it determined?
The cost of your bespoke playground markings will be determined by the size and the complexity of the design. The larger and more complex the design, the higher the cost. For example, a school logo of around 1 metre wide could cost between £300-£400.
Are there any additional fees or charges I should be aware of, such as installation or maintenance costs?
The overall cost given for your bespoke playground markings will include installation, as do all our standard playground marking designs on our website.
Do you offer customisable options within a specific budget range?
All of our designs are completely customisable, and we can work together to create a design that is within your budget range. Speak with our knowledgeable playground marking consultants and we will be able to advise exactly what you could get for your specific budget.
Can you provide references or examples of previous projects to give us an idea of the quality of your work?
Certainly! Take a look at some of these school logos we’ve completed at schools across the UK. From sports court centre pieces to welcome markings, these are just a few of the many custom markings we’ve installed over the years.
How long does it typically take to complete a bespoke playground marking project, from design to installation?
Once you are in touch with us, the design stage of your bespoke playground marking project begins with a virtual survey where you can join our expert playground marking consultants. A survey usually lasts around 45 minutes, where you will then receive the design within 48 hours – typically faster depending on the time of year. Playground marking installations usually take between half a day to 2-3 days depending on the size of the project. See our process for more information.
Are there any specific design limitations or restrictions we should be aware of when creating custom playground markings?
Limitations are few with our talented in-house design team and our state-of-the-art waterjet cutting machine. However, whilst we can cut extremely intricate designs, for a high-quality finish after installation, we recommend that any text is at least 50mm high. We are also unable to achieve a gradient or colour blending, though we do have 26 thermoplastic colours available which we can use to create a similar effect.
What materials and methods do you use for playground markings?
Our playground markings are created using the highest quality thermoplastic. Thermoplastic is an ultra-durable material that lasts up to 10 times longer than paint! It’s also manufactured using renewable energy and other renewable sources. Markings are heat applied to the ground using a propane lance and can be ready to use within just 15 minutes! Check out more advantages of thermoplastic.
We also have a range of surface coatings that can be used which are either rolled or sprayed onto the surface.
Do you offer any warranties or guarantees on the durability and longevity of the markings?
Yes! All our thermoplastic playground markings come with a 4 year warranty so you can rest assured they will be around for generations to come. Some of our surface coatings come with varying warranties too such as 1 year for anti-slip playground paint, and 4 years for MMA (Methacrylate Cold Plastic).
Are there any safety regulations or standards that we need to consider when designing custom playground markings, and do you ensure compliance with them?
Our playground marking consultants are experienced to advise on any points regarding safety when it comes to designing your playground marking plan. This includes zoning any activity areas, making sure markings are a suitable distance away from objects considering their use.
We fully conform and work to BS EN 1436 standards, and all our products are manufactured in accordance with ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications. Our thermoplastic and surface coatings all have a high slip resistance too – perfect for outdoor play all year round.
