Freestanding Signs

Freestanding signs are most often used where the premises, or business are stepped back from the entrance, or have blocked visibility from the road, or may have preservation order from signs attached to a building.
It is very important to make these of high standard materials reducing maintenance to a minimum. All the freestanding signs we make are using sprayed aluminiums or non degrading wood products (teak, tricoya). Marine  and birch plys which used to be stable materials are not suitable for sign making, as they are unpredictable and tend to have too much movement in our four seasons to allow paint to remain happily on their surface.
Freestanding signs can be handpainted on aluminium (Barberstown Castle)
Raised letters on Aluminium (Newbridge Silverware) Raised Gold leaf (Kilashee School) and handpainted with artwork and illumination (Oghill Nursing Home)

Freestanding or gallows sign can also be done like a hanging sign on a single stand, fixed or swinging. These are great for Hotel Signs School Signs
