Our Promise

All our signs are individually handmade to order by skilled craftsmen and blacksmiths in our own forge. They are fabricated from top quality steel (iron), tig welded and finished to the highest of standards. We take pride in the quality of our work and do not cut corners.

Once fabricated, the entire assembly is degreased, shot blasted and galvanised (zinc plated). This is followed by a thick coat of polyester powder, electrostatically applied to the sign which is then baked on in our industrial ovens (i.e. powder coated).This combination of coatings will ensure many maintenance free years.

Alternatively, for the absolute ultimate in durability; manufacturing your sign entirely from stainless steel and welding it together with our specialist stainless steel welding process prior to coating it black will give you an unsurpassed, maintenance free sign. We always recommend a stainless steel sign for coastal locations. Price for this varies depending on your style and size of sign, usually a 30% increase to the above prices. Please contact us for a quotation.

Ready to Order?

Upon confirmation of your order we only ask for a £100 deposit. Following which we will design (if required), manufacture, galvanise (not required for stainless steel signs), powder coat satin black your sign and have it ready for delivery. We are happy to send you a photograph of your finished sign for your approval prior to the balance being due.
