    hi all here is another of many qoutes i get by visitors to the site that want signs’ search engines are sending them here.

    email : mcjw95@dial.pipex.com
    realname : Barry Denton
    subject : Enamelled signs
    message : I work for a heritage railway which is looking to get some
    enamelled signs made. These would be similar to those that were used in the past
    to advertise sweets and cigarettes etc., although we want them to advertise
    firms that are associated with us.

    I’ve tried searching the internet but haven’t come up with anyone in the uk who
    makes this type of sign.

    Can you help?

    Ashby Trade Signs in Reading are great for the blanks and ali systems 0118 981 5343 they will supply the powder coated ali signs it is however unlikely that any company will make the complete authentic type. We have made this type of thing for film sets the problem is the high gloss glaze which the originals would have had perhaps 2 coats of yacht varnish on top of powder coated/vinylled sign panels.
    We could have a go at this!
