Design a sign

Create Your Own Sign

Sometimes a standard sign just won’t do. You need something a little special, something that will stand out, something with a little spice that will get your message across. Why not put your design skills to the test and say it with a sign!

We have worked hard on being able to bring you this option of Design Your Own Sign.

You can create your own sign from scratch using your own images, text, and symbols.

If you need something more sensible, we have in place Mandatory, Prohibition, Hazard, and First Aid sign templates with a selection of symbols and custom text for you to create your own sign.

Please ensure you upload high-quality images (preferably in vector format) for the best result when printed.

It’s easy as 1 2 3. As simple as do re mi. ABC!

All you have to do is,

  1. Select the material and size.
  2. Select images and text.
  3.  Add to basket
Create your own

We have even made a little video and put it on YouTube to show you all how easy it is to design your own sign.

Signs can be an essential component of a business’s overall marketing strategy.

Visibility is the most important part of your signage.

Crowding your sign with too many words or lines of text makes it harder to read from a distance, but hey it’s your Design and your sign so you do what you want!  Bring your vision to life and create signage that meets your exact specifications.

More about CE Certified Road Traffic Signs

We often see the letters of CE on products we purchase, whether that’s on electrical products, construction products, windows/shower screens, and children’s toys. (It’s all I can now see as I tidy my children’s toys and put them back in the correct boxes! )

CE marking is a self-certification scheme to demonstrate that products comply with relevant European health, safety, and environmental protection legislation. When a product is CE marked, it means that the manufacturer has verified compliance with the essential health and safety requirements as indicated in the applicable European product directives and regulations.

In regards to CE Marking of Road Traffic Signs, simply put; every permanent road sign installed on any public highway must be CE Certified.

The standard which needs to be adhered to is EN 12899-1-2007. ARTSM (Association for road traffic safety and management), of which Stocksigns is a member, is the trade body for companies that manufacture and supply traffic signs in the UK. You can read their guide on CE Marking of Road Traffic Signs here. https://artsm.org.uk/media/Guidance-on-CE-Marking-130913.pdf

A sign of the times for 2020

The ‘Men at Work’ sign has been scrapped in a watershed moment! At Stocksigns we are replacing the word ‘Men’ with ‘Workers’ for 2020/21.

 We are hoping that the updated signs will help to raise awareness and consciousness that men and women are both very much included in the construction industry.

Women In Construction

Most people know that Waterloo Bridge has the finest views of London at ground level, but what a lot of people don’t know is that it is also nicknamed the ‘Ladies Bridge’. Why?

Waterloo Bridge needed to be rebuilt during WWll, because most men of fighting age were away with the war effort, which meant that they were in short supply. Women to the rescue! Women got the chance to prove that they are every bit as capable as men and Waterloo Bridge was predominately rebuilt by women.

After digging around on the internet, I found some wonderful photos of women in action rebuilding Waterloo Bridge. 

Waterloo Bridge was constructed by around 350 women during WWll. Millions of people walk across London Bridge (Thousands daily) but I wonder how many know the huge role women played in building the bridge?

Thanks to a historian for remembering and reminding us of the women’s role in the construction of the bridge, which has now been officially recognised.

It just goes to show that women have been involved in critical construction for a long time!

With WWll in mind fast forward to 2020, women working in construction is on the increase! According to ‘Go Construct’ women make up around 14% of construction industry professionals and this number can only be set to rise with more and more women choosing construction jobs.

Misconceptions about gender-specific roles are gradually diminishing with the growing number of women choosing a career in construction.

Last year some of us were fortunate enough to meet Katie Kelleher, a crane operator who has worked on some of the biggest infrastructure projects in London, at the Kent Construction Expo our Andy even got a picture with her, he is quite the fan! Katie had been named in the top 15 ones to watch in the Construction News 2019 for her support to get more young women into the industry through apprenticeships.
