The sign making process explained

30 Sep 2013

If you’re investing in new signage then you’ll want to make sure that you get it right. After all, whatever its purpose, your signage needs to convey the right image and do what you need it to do.

By using professional sign makers you can rest assured that all of your sign-making requirements will be met. We offer an expert service that deals with the whole sign-making process, from concept to installation. So what does this involve?


From Concept to Design

The first thing that we do is to listen. In order to design the right sign for your business, we need to learn about your requirements. We’ll ask you questions about your needs and what you are looking for. You may well have an idea or draft of what you want or you might prefer us to start from scratch for you.

We understand the importance of branding and this is one of the key drivers when we enter the graphic design phase. We’ll make sure that the image and message that you want to represent are at the forefront and ensure that our design is eye-catching and professional.

We will also take into account how and where the sign or signs will be used. Their location, whether this is inside or outside or in a work area or reception area, will inform the choice of materials that we propose. Whether they’re fixed or portable will influence the size and weight.

We’ll provide a proof of how the sign will look for your approval before starting the manufacturing stage. By using computer graphics we can provide you with an accurate representation of the finished signage and make any alterations you require at an early stage.


Our sign makers are able to work with a variety of quality materials, including metal, glass, Perspex, plastic and vinyl. We use a variety of different methods to produce the lettering on our signs, from traditional hand-painting to computer-controlled routers.

And it’s not just about the look. Our electrical-engineering expertise ensures that your signage is appropriately lit and the professional branding well preserved.

We can also provide guidance on location, fixing and how to secure any necessary permissions in order to comply with local regulations. We can also offer a full installation service in the UK where required.

As professional sign makers we pride ourselves on our expert approach to the whole sign-making process. From understanding our customers’ requirements to designing signage that meets the brief and from manufacturing quality and long-lasting signs to installing them in a professional and timely manner, our overriding motivation is to get it right.
