In the beginning

Established in 1947 and based in Redditch, Worcestershire, Sign Specialists is a third generation family owned business having been located initially in Hockley, Birmingham.

Back then we mainly serviced the brewery trade – a market sector we are still very much involved in to this day.

Even the original founder (Dennis Tisdale) got involved – seen here conceptualising some signage ideas for the Moon landings back in 1969!

Health and safety was not how it is today – Dennis can be seen here up a ladder hand painting the graphic back in 1953…


However, over the years, we have expanded our portfolio to include clients from all market sectors and also moved premises to Redditch ensuring speedy and efficient access to the main UK transport networks.

Our manufacturing, project management and logistics teams all operate under one roof in one location, ensuring a consistency in approach and quality that helps us to deliver great quality product and provide high class customer service.

Present Day

We deliver across a broad range of sectors throughout the UK.

We provide a fast, effective response to our customers needs and ensure all projects – no matter the size – are all delivered on time and on budget.

Our creative team, coupled with a wide range of in-house manufacturing processes allows us to bring your vision to reality.

We have a large team with expert knowledge across the Automotive, Hotel & Leisure, Pubs & Restaurants and Retail sectors.

Sign Specialists are also able to offer an international signage supply service whether supply only or installation via our network of established engineers.
