Café Mercy: Manufacturing Signage for Newcastle’s Latest Bar

September 6, 2023

Filed in: Projects

Café Mercy is the latest addition the the iconic Grey Street in Newcastle Upon Tyne. It is the sister of Mother Mercy, an underground cocktail bar voted in the top 50 cocktail bars in the UK. Café Mercy offers a menu full of signature cocktails, as well as some new additions. Ellis Signs were excited to be a part of this project as we have worked together in the past digitally printing vinyl graphics for Mother Mercy (below).


Our designers followed the brief given by Café Mercy which was to mix in a Mediterranean vibe with their current branding. The white buildings synonymous with the Mediterranean were a key factor in drawing inspiration for the signage. Once the design was signed off, we could begin the manufacturing process.


There are a few different manufacturing methods which went into fabricating this sign. The sign includes white powder coated built up aluminium letters and halo illumination created using warm white LEDs. The sign ties in perfectly with the chic and trendy vibe of Grey Street, whilst mixing in a taste of the Mediterranean.


Café Mercy is located on Grey Street in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Our fitting team made sure they followed all necessary health and safety procedures to be able to work here. The finished product looks incredible thanks to the unique design and bespoke manufacturing processes used to make this sign.
