We're a tight-knit team of forward-thinking, award-winning signage experts. We value both technological expertise and good old-fashioned craftsmanship and it is these values that drive our team. Sign it Signs was started in Queenstown in 1982, before being bought by existing owners Reece McChlery and his wife Sally, who rebranded the company and modernised it with new technology.
The past five years have seen rapid growth at Sign It Signs and this trend looks set to continue with continual investment and development. We now have six staff and are the largest, well-equipped sign shop in the area. We look forward to sharing our signage expertise with you.
We believe in a relaxed, happy work place and as a result we have a well established team of long-term staff members. We strongly believe that this stability has played an important part in the success we enjoy today. You as our client will be the first to benefit from a team that knows you and your product, and genuinely takes your interests to heart.
Whether your project is big or small, simple or complex, we will approach it with the utmost integrity, creativity and value for money in mind.
