We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas Break, we are all back to work now and excited to see what 2022 brings. To kick off the year we thought we would share with you our team here at The Sign Maker.
Meet The Team!
Shaun Price: The Sign Maker was born from an initial favour for Shaun’s mother-in-law! Unsurprisingly, this means that he continues to be essential to running things here onsite. Aside from being the boss, Shaun is one of the main designers. He is also the CNC programmer and he takes responsibility for the lasering and engraving processes. Additionally, Shaun continues to further his research on signage making techniques and materials. Shaun is also the go-to-man for all things mechanical.
Paul: As our senior carpenter, Paul is kept very busy! The timber arrives as raw wood planks, so Paul transforms the wood from its original form to blank canvas. From posts and arms to backing boards, if you’re looking for a wooden sign, then you can guarantee that Paul has had a hand in its craftsmanship.
Martin: Martin is our other carpenter here onsite at The Sign Maker. He is a very experienced carpenter that joined our team only very recently. His craftsmanship is second to none.
Poppy-Lea Price: In the spirit of keeping things in the family, you’ll find Poppy in several aspects of The Sign Maker business. Poppy is the workshop manager and spray painter, so she ensures things run smoothly from the initial order through to production and delivery. In addition to her pivotal roles in the workshop, Poppy also heads up all things marketing for the business. Poppy is the daughter of Kate and Shaun.
Jake Price: Designing is an important part of bringing your sign together and Jake takes on this role here at The Sign Maker. Not only is he a designer, but he also ensures that our IT Systems are kept up to date and running at optimum efficiency. Jake is the son of Kate and Shaun
Anna Skinner: Anna heads up the vinyl department onsite. She is in charge of all of the signage that uses vinyl lettering or printing. Within this role, Anna also takes responsibility for applying vinyl to the signs at this stage of production. The results are stunning! Anna also cuts materials for other departments including rubbers for the stone department and stencils for the painted sign department. Anna is the daughter of Kate and Shaun.
Kirstee: Kirstee also works in the vinyl department onsite. She too is in charge of the signage that uses cut or printed vinyl. Additionally, Kirstee also helps to prepare stencils and rubbers for the stone and painted departments.
Caroline: Having begun her time at The Sign Maker in the offices, Caroline has now branched out into the workshop! Caroline takes on jobs such as priming, stencilling and is also a Stonemason. She is extremely versatile and works across several departments.

Kate is our workshop assistant who is currently learning carpentry but is already very skilled in cutting the materials for several departments, spray painting the metalwork and making sure all the signs get sent to the right homes.
Kate Price: Kate takes on the big responsibility of running the business! She works across many aspects of the business including the various websites, photo-taking, finances and the day to day operations of how things go here at The Sign Maker.

She keeps in mind budget, situation and personal preferences to help you design your perfect sign. Louise will also provide you with quotes in other materials such as brass, anodised aluminium, slate, granite and more.
Millie: Millie takes on the role of our blogger and copy editor. She works within our marketing team producing social media content and brainstorming how we can assist customers with our content. Millie’s main responsibility is blogging about products, design processes and life at The Sign Maker, but she also works on our websites.
