We are proud to announce that Clover Signs has now made over 3,000 signs since our opening in December 2006. The Clover Signs team would like to thank all our customers for their business which has enabled us to reach this milestone. Special thanks to those customers that have come back repeatedly to order additional signs for their business or property.
So who bought our 3,000th sign? It went to the Greenbank Bed and Breakfast which is beautifully situated in the village of Bowerchalke. The village lies within a conservation area designated as an area of “outstanding natural beauty”. I’ve never been there but having looked at their website, www.greenbank101.com, I’m sure it would prove to be very rewarding.
Here is the sign already installed!
Greenbank B & B – new sign
And here is the sign it replaced! Yes it’s there, in the bottom right hand corner.
We would love to have you become one of our valued customers.
This custom hanging sign that we did recently was shipped to a clothing designer in Graz Austria. It is double sided with the the logo at the top and the carved skirt done as add-ons to give a 3 dimensional effect. All the gold is is gilded by hand with real gold leaf. It is simple yet attractive and gives a feeling of quality. With the real gold gilding that does not tarnish and the UV resistant acrylic paint it should attract customers for many years.

All our House Signs are made with the highest quality materials.
Every so often we receive an unusual design request. The sign below, given the name Arthur, was certainly one of them. I never inquired as to the intended purpose of the sign but I assume it is doing it’s job well. Certainly it is not a house sign but we enjoyed making it all the same.
Our hanging signs and free standing signs are becoming more and more popular, as our customers realize the benefit of sourcing custom metal work from the same supplier as their hand crafted signage. These signs are ideal for the end of long driveways, providing a quality welcome statement to your property. As you can see in the photo below they can also be ordered with mountings for a hanging flower basket to give it that added touch.
Here is another business sign we did recently. We don’t usually do installations but since this one was just down the road and in the heart of downtown London we decided to do it ourselves to be sure it was done right. At first glance the sign might not look that big. In fact is is 2.85 meters long and 66 cm wide. A little bigger than your normal house sign! You might just be able to see that it has two joints inside the A’s at both ends but that sure does not distract from the effect of the sign. Here are some before and after shots, unfortunately it was raining so the photos are not the best.

For most people the present economic crisis spells bad times but with the Bed and Breakfast trade that does not seem to be the case. With the recent credit crunch more and more people are finding that going abroad is beyond their means and they are looking at the cheaper alternative of going on holiday closer to home. This means more business for Bed and Breakfasts and more and more people are looking at the option of starting a B&B to make a little extra money. At Clover Signs we are glad for the increase in enquiries into Bed and Breakfast Signs. They are simpler than most business signs because often they hang outside a private residence and serve as a house sign as well. The example below demonstrates this.
The sub sign is attached using quick links and can be removed during the winter months or when you no longer wish advertise your B&B to passers by. Also perfect for hotels.
Having just come into the business here at Clover Signs I was pleasantly surprised to receive a request to design a sign to be presented as a house warming gift. In further inquiry into the design we found it to be headed for the coast of South Africa to a house overlooking the Indian ocean. The sign was to reflect the beauty of the view and the patriotic feelings of the intended recipient. Here is what we came up with after some back and forth with the benefactor.
If your looking for a special sign as a gift, or for a property of your own, visit us at Clover Signs and we’ll be glad to help.
