We have been using signs to advertise Pubs since Roman times. The Romans used to hang vine leaves outside to advertise that they sold wine and pub signs have developed since then. During the 12th Century, picture signs became widely used as many of the public were unable to read or write. They started out with pictures of religious icons and then changed to Royal leaders following the ruling of King Henry VIII. These signs are still used today along with a wide variety of illuminated and more modern pub signage. No-matter what type of pub or bar you own, there is a sign to meet your requirements, budget and brand.
Signs play a vital role in our hospitals.
With directional hospital signs showing patients and staff the way, it helps to relieve busy Reception staff from answering wayfinding questions, making better use of their time. They also help visitors to the hospital feel less stressed when visiting a loved one or visiting for an appointment.
At HNS we love to make signs which are truly unique and bespoke. Something which fits the individual company’s style and requirements and is truly memorable.
Over the years we have manufactured some pretty unique bespoke signs for some pretty unique customers. These include everything from neon, to signs with 120 LED bulbs, hand painted and even wooden signs.
But having a bespoke sign requires more than just a creative design. It requires using good quality materials, a working knowledge of different manufacturing and fabrication techniques and expertise in sign installation. We pride ourselves in being able to offer all of this plus more.
So if you want something as unique as your company, speak to us about a bespoke sign designed just for you.
Traditional Sign Painting
Traditional sign painted signs are making a come back and becoming the latest trend along with other signwriting products. Traditional sign painting is permanent, easy to touch up and makes a real statement for your business brand and is an ideal solution for those in listed buildings or heritage areas. Sometimes you may see original sign painted signs on pubs for example that a traditional sign writer can come out and replicate or new can create a new product to match like the hand painting wooden signs that are seen outside the establishment.
Sign painting isn’t just traditional signs, here at HNS our traditional sign painters are also trained in gilding and can use both sheet gold leaf and loose leaf to add sparkle to signs, honours boards and wall art.
Attractive, professional retail signage can be the deciding factor between your customers choosing you and the competition.
