The diversity, colourfulness and imagination of British village signs is something that is very much appreciated by both locals and tourists. There is even a Village Sign Society dedicated to studying and recording signs throughout the country.
Whilst a few villages manage to design and make their own signs, most need help and advice. Towns and cities are much more sign-conscious than they used to be. New signs are often part of new corporate images and renewed efforts to stimulate tourism and economic development. Towns have to compete with their neighbours for tourists, shoppers and casual visitors, and the image they present reflects that.
Like the towns themselves, the signs need to be distinctive and eye-catching. To Leander Architectural, every non-standard sign is a victory for vernacular architecture and individuality over standardisation.
Along with other specialist sign makers, wood carvers, masons and blacksmiths, Leander enjoys helping towns and villages to sign themselves attractively and effectively.
The company welcomes enquiries from hamlets, villages, towns and cities looking for well-designed, well-made and immaculately finished signs of any size.
