Lovely Batch of Colourful Wheel Covers went out today

The wheel covers were all very colourful today – two were full wrap and the Alice in Wonderland was the standard colour print. Our customers are certainly becoming more imaginative these days!

Dear The Sign Maker Team,

My name is Sophie Pendry, myself and my friends ordered a plaque from you a couple of weeks ago in memory of our friend Dan Hougham who was tragically lost in a car accident 7 weeks ago.

I wanted to take the time out to personally write you a letter of thanks, We were absolutely over whelmed by the finished result as it’s exactly what we were after. I can assure you so many tears were shed upon only showing Dan’s Friends before our event on the 31st July to unveil it’s new home to the family and the rest of Dan’s Friends. I physically can’t thank you enough for getting every detail spot on with this and it’s meant the world to all of us.

The process from start to finish was as simple as anything due to your wonderful team. Your service is impeccable and i didn’t have any doubts when ordering this. It’s been extremely hard for all of us losing Dan as he was essentially a brother to us all. Thank you for every phone call, every email and every proof it’s all perfection.

I know it’s not much but from the bottom of all of our hearts we thank you all for making our dreams come true and giving us something Dan deserves more than anything through his honour that we can visit forever more.

We can never be more grateful.

All our love
The Guildford Lot

Many thanks it arrived in perfect condition.

Tricoya Sign Boards with Painted Letters

Traditional Style Painted Signs – If you are looking for a more traditional looking sign with painted letters, then these sign boards may be your answer. The board is  wood based  made using a high performance resin. It is very stable, strong, durable and weatherproof. Tricoya itself comes with a 50 year guarantee. It is also environmentally friendly.

The sign board is spray painted using is a two component polyurethane paint which is much more durable than standard brush-on paints. It is not only much tougher and longer lasting, but is also more resilient to chemical.

Good morning,

Thank you very much for the memorial post. The helpfulness of the telephone receptionists, the attention to detail by the designer, including the provision of 4 proof designs to ensure what ended up on the post was what we had in our heads, plus the quality of workmanship of the finished work impressed us both.

Hi Anne

Our sign arrived on Friday and I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You for getting it to us in good time for our Royal Visit tomorrow.

It looks great and we are really pleased with it. I think we have even managed to sort out suitable screws – I didn’t realise that they would be such a problem!

Thank you for all your help.

Kindest regards.

I just wanted to say how delighted we are with the slate memorial for our parents that you have produced. It is perfect, and the lettering is extremely clear to read. We can now look forward to the interment service on Monday and will lay the memorial with pride.
Many thanks,
Elisabeth Slater
