What a season is it turning out to be! From some of the warmest temperatures ever recorded to the relief of summer storms – we’ve seen it all onsite at The Sign Maker across the past few weeks. That hasn’t stopped us from throwing ourselves at every minute and embracing all that summer has had to offer. The team continue to be phenomenal at taking your calls and producing signage that we are proud of, the wildlife is thriving and taking particular advantage of our wildlife ponds in the warmer weather, and we are in amongst a busy season of new projects and exciting ventures.
In this blog, we are celebrating The North Devon Show, and also showcasing some of our latest signage with you. We are so grateful for all we are able to do as a business, and we love taking you along for the ride!
The North Devon Show
On August 3rd, some of our team had the joy of attending The North Devon Show and what a fantastic day it was! From live music and animal displays to the gathering of hundreds of local businesses and communities, it was wonderful to witness the show coming back together after a few years away due to Covid. With horses on-site at The Sign maker, a team favourite was the equestrian events but it was all-around a day to remember.
We were based in the craft tent where there was a steady flow of people all day! It was wonderful to meet so many individuals at The Sign Maker Stand, but it was also amazing to have the chance to connect with so many fellow local businesses. The standard of Devon-based craftsmanship has always inspired us. Being part of the local business scene is something that we are immensely proud of, but we also cherish meeting others in this particular community.
We also had great fun hosting our ‘Guess The Weight’ competition, giving someone the opportunity to win a house sign or memorial from us! Kate and Poppy enjoyed hearing discussions of how to make a prediction – individuals using imaginary items to think up what the weight of our wooden block was. A winner has since been chosen, and we look forward to taking this mini competition around some of the other shows this summer. We hope to see you there (keep your eyes on our socials for more information)!
The Sign Maker Signage Showcase
We craft fantastic signage all year round, but this year we wanted to celebrate some of our favourites with you in a mini summer showcase! Wheelcovers have been in popular demand (you might know why if you caught our last blog), and we have been loving some of the unique design ideas coming into our inbox. Other popular signage choices have included our wrought iron stakes, slate house number signs, painted hockey sticks and wooden signs in many design forms. Below you can click through a gallery of some of the signs and memorials that have stood out most to us in this summer season. Each sign that we craft is special to us, but these are pieces that we wanted to showcase and share with you.
Thank you for taking the time to check out our latest blog. We are so grateful for the support that we receive and thoroughly enjoy crafting signage that you can cherish. If you’re on the market for new signage and are not quite sure where to start, do get in contact with us and one of our experienced office team will be sure to come alongside you. Alternatively, if you’re looking to follow our new ventures, then do connect with us on social media through our links below. There is plenty to look forward to as we close out the summer season!
