Design, large and small format print and signage for schools and nurseries.
I have had the pleasure of visiting and building relationships with schools locally across Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire, (including Kettering, Little Harrowden, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Raunds, Rushden and Wellingborough), and also working remotely with schools further afield around the UK.
School signs are available in all shapes, sizes and styles. Choose formal signs to welcome parents, children and visitors into your school, and brighter, less formal signs for both decorational and educational purposes. Silhouette shapes of children create an impact on hall, sports hall, corridor and playground walls. Times tables stair graphics allow the children to continue learning as they move around the school, whilst also brightening up stairwells. Display your Rules, Values and Behaviour signs in bright, fun ways in classrooms and throughout the school. Display class names either on classroom doors or as hanging signs. Information display boards allow you to create a professional display of important information for visitors, parents and staff, or show off the children’s latest work and update it as often as you wish.
Examples of some of these designs are shown below to give you an idea of the variety of school signs available, and images of the latest work can be viewed in the gallery. If you don’t see what you are looking for please ask anyway as most things are possible!
A site survey and installation service is available to schools within approximately a 20 miles radius of Wellingborough, Northants, and can certainly be discussed for schools outside this area. However, unless you have a large complex project, it is often the case that signage jobs can be handled remotely, by phone and email. You simply supply images and sizes of the areas for the signage, and then the signs are designed, an e-proof is emailed for your approval, then the signs are delivered for your Site Supervisor to install. This process works really well for signs including times tables stair graphics, values/rules/behaviour signs, information display boards and classroom name signs, and many schools are choosing this process in order to make savings on the installation costs.

Please note that some signs can be manufactured and delivered to you direct for the Site Supervisor to fit. This allows me to produce signage for schools across the UK, rather than being limited to Northamptonshire. Plus it can save you the cost of installation.
All of the images used on this page and the schools gallery page are of signs which were quoted, designed and project managed by myself, either whilst working for a signage company or working for myself.
