Shelley Signs produces waymarkers ranging from surface-printed PVC discs, mass produced, through to oak or Douglas fir bollards with routed and sandblasted text. These help guide visitors around footpaths and bridleways, and indirectly to ensure visitors do not stray from the waymarked trail.

Typically waymarker discs, signs and labels will be colour co-ordinated with the colour matching different graded walks. Waymarker discs to highlight each route are usually supported by interpretive signs and visitor information leaflets which give an overview of the route.

Specification - discs

The simplest waymarker discs are produced in PVC or high-impact acylic. The standard size is 76mm diameter although discs to waymark routes are often produced square or at larger sizes.

Most discs are surface-printed and are not finished with the anti-vandal and graffiti accorded to standard interpretation boards. Foamex is also often used although this goes brittle with age. Shelley Signs recommends glass reinforced plastic as a suitable material for waymarker discs as it is a tough and robust material that does not crack and split as it ages. 

Most waymarker discs are produced in standard colours to match the Countryside Code. They are normally drilled for easy fitting but some materials, especially HIPS, is very soft – it is easy to drive a nail straight through the waymarker disc.

Waymarker discs that used to be printed in blue or yellow on white can now include text, logos or crests and the name of each route. Digital printing allows small quantities of waymarker discs to be produced for local trails – an effective way of using waymarker discs to help promote a trail.

Fixing

Suitable points for fixing waymarker discs can vary, including to gates, posts, trees, fingerposts or a stile. In some environments there are no natural fixing points therefore timber posts are used.

Timber waymarking posts

Timber posts can be supplied in oak or softwood and are used with routed text, engraved or carved arrows and images. The tops are weathered 4 ways to ensure water falls straight off them.
