Shelley Signs - experts in more than just wood

Wildlife Trust SignShelley Signs specialises in the design and manufacture of wayfinding signs, interpretive panels and park signs. The company offer a diverse production base including wide format printing, glass reinforced plastic encapsulation finishing and tactile timber signs.

The team at Shelley Signs are experts working in timber with products ranging from standard lectern frames, bespoke framing structures to sandblasted and routed graphics. For clients wishing to meet DDA requirements Shelley Signs' tactile sandblasted timber signs offer a fantastic solution and can also be integrated with printed signs, Braille plaques or supplied as stand-alone timber units.

The company's usual policy is to paint the text and map details but leave all illustrations as silhouettes - this allows the natural grain of the timber to be enhanced while making the highlighted areas very visible even to people who are colour blind.

Shelley Signs sources timber from a wide variety of sawmills. Of interest currently is a Cedar butt, air-dried for seven years from a storm felled tree in Marbury Country Park, Cheshire. The company also has access to substantial off-cuts from oak supplied in the rebuilding of Windsor Castle.

Shelley Signs is also a leading supplier of wide format full colour graphics encapsulated into glass reinforced plastic (GRP). All printing is undertaken in-house and the GRP finishing process offers exceptional durability. All GRP printed signs have a 10 year warranty against fading.

Posts, lectern frames and wall mounted structures are all manufactured in-house at Shelley Signs. The company works in a variety of materials including oak, softwood, galvanised and sprayed mild steel and stainless steel.
