Our Cast Bronze memorial plaques are traditionally made in a foundry. These memorials are handmade by true craftsmen – each one is absolutely unique. We can include your own fonts and images if required.

Bronze memorials are very long lasting and require very little maintenance.

We can also mount them on crosses or stakes so they are freestanding.

Painted Wooden Signs


Painted Oak Business and House Signs Painted

Oak signs are very traditional, but with the use of a modern font, their clean cut style would look very smart in any contemporary environment. They can be single sided house signs or doubled sided hanging signs.

Although it is difficult to see in the photos, the beautiful grain of the oak does remain visible beneath the paint.

The paint we use 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 chemicals.

New Entrance Sign

These new entrance signs are becoming more and more popular, heres another one we did recently. This particular sign has been made using the beautiful, hard and durable oak, it has then been painted using one of our Farrow & Ball stock colours (Hague Blue) and had the addition of Gothic tops to the top of the posts.


Here at The Sign Maker we offer a wide selection of different options in order to make your sign truly bespoke and unique to you. We have large range of stock colours, including the popular Farrow & Ball colours. However if none of our current colours work for you then for a charge we can colour match to any Farrow & Ball colour. Click the link at the bottom of the page below to see our full range of stock colours

Additionally we give you a wide selection of both fonts and images (links are below), but if none of these suit you then send us in your artwork at the highest quality you can and we can see what we can do to include it on your sign.

Finally a stunning addition to these particular entrance signs is the different post tops you can have. Choose from standard post tops, rounded post tops, a post cap or gothic tops.

If you would like some more information or would like us to give you a quote please call us on 01769561355 or email us at

We got Chickens!

Here at The Sign Maker we have had one solitary chicken for a long period of time called Esmeralda, however a couple of weeks ago Esmeralda got herself a  bunch of new friends in the form of ex battery hens.IMG_1175

Laura Price another member of the team and the family saw an advert to save ex battery hens from being slaughtered. So off Laura went and collected a dozen of very sad and in poor condition chickens.

Since then we have brought them back and had them shut in their pen in the orchard for a week to let them settle in their new home.

As you can see from the pictures they are looking very rough, they are all lacking feathers and their eggs are of very low quality. However they are already enjoying life with more space so I do not think it will be long before we see great improvements in their condition and start enjoying some yummy eggs. In a few days we are going to release them into the whole orchard during the day (more space than they have ever seen!) and we will update you when we do.IMG_1174

If you are interested in getting some ex battery hens, most places across the country will advertise that they are about to renew their stock, and usually only ask for a donation towards them. So you get very cheap eggs and get to save some chickens. #caringforourcountryside
