Standard Signs

Family-run business for over 40 years

Standard Signs, as the largest independent sign manufacturer in Wales, has been supplying Local Authorities, contractors, trade and private customers with high quality sign solutions for over 40 years, and during that time our family-run business has gone from strength to strength.

A high quality and friendly service

We have built an enviable reputation within the industry, not only for our high quality signage, but also for our fantastic levels of customer service, which is why we have been able to retain so many of our loyal customers over the decades.

We are known for our rapid service and friendly consultative methodology, which removes all the hassle from the design, manufacture and installation process. We listen, work closely with you to fully understand your needs, and together we create the initial design concepts. We then continue that open communication and support approach right through manufacture, quality control and installation of the approved signage, tailored specifically to individual requirements.

Full in-house manufacturing

For complete peace of mind, all of our signs are manufactured in-house in our Newport and Winsford facilities and within our ISO 9001 Quality Management System to ensure we meet all necessary standards.

All our traffic signs have CE / CA accreditation, meet TSRGD Directions 2002 and are fully compliant with BS EN 12899-1:2007.

We have also invested in some of the best printing and sign manufacturing equipment on the market; from our latest TrafficJet™ Pro printer, designed to meet the industry demand for sustainable traffic sign production and improved sign durability, to our latest CNC machine.

Whether you’re looking for road signs, street signs and warning signs or health and safety signs and private signage, you can be sure of receiving a quality service and product.

We are also a 3M Approved Signmaker.

Superior Quality Materials

Our sign materials are carefully chosen for their retroreflectivity and their economical and environmental benefits.

We were early adopters of microprismatic retroreflective technology, and the majority of our Class RA2 signs are made with 3M High Intensity Prismatic (HIP) sheeting, which means you get the benefit of a 12-year warranty with our permanent road signs.

We also use 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ reflective sheeting which is designed for durable road traffic signs, including gantries, motorways and trunk road signs, DG3 is certified in European Technical Approval (07/0272) and is the only premium sheeting that carries the CE quality marking.

Who we work with

We work with public and private sector clients across the UK and overseas, from highway authorities and educational institutions to manufacturing, construction and civil engineering companies.

Who approves us

Our ISO accreditation demonstrates our commitment to our customers to deliver quality products and high service levels through our processes and attention to detail.

Social Value

We are a family-owned business and have been for 40 years. We believe in supporting our local communities. As such, not only do we employ locally, both in Newport & Cheshire providing over 20 positions across the two locations, we also do a number of other things such as:

  • sponsor local sports clubs especially those run for children
  • support our local foodbanks
  • donate to local charities

In 2022 we signed the Armed Forces Covenant, formally committing our company to supporting the armed forces community.


At Standard Signs, we are committed to sustainability and strive to mitigate our impact on the environment.

The production techniques involved for HIP are also much kinder to the environment than other reflective sheet manufacturing methods.

With HIP the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions are reduced by 97%, energy consumption by 77% and solid waste by 46% when compared to glass beaded sheeting manufacture.

We are manufacturers of high quality
