20 Nov This is our story
We weren’t always called signapp… apps werent invented in 1985. We’ve been many names (we’ve gone by a few names in the past) but it never changed what we did.
From humble beginnings:
In a nutshell, we have gone full circle. We started off as a family business. a father and son (who was also due to be a father too) put their heads together and made some house signs. The thing is, once you start seeing a market for these sorts of things, you start looking at what else you can achieve.
It didn’t take long before the workshop (Mum’s annex) couldn’t contain the amount of tools and machinery needed, and so the journey began.
As the business began to grow, slowly and steadily, products began to evolve. Clients needed more and more. The walls began to stretch at the seams again. It was time to move.“As the business began to grow, slowly and steadily, products began to evolve. Clients needed more and more. The walls began to stretch at the seams again.

Today, we’re still a family business. A generation on and it’s still a father and son… A wife and friends that make this one big family.
This isn’t the end of the story though. If you’re still interested, I’d like to share the future write:
Big plans that you might find interesting:
By the end of 2014: we’ve found this great little company in America that supply possibly the coolest packaging materials ever. Made from mushroom and agri waste, we could potentially send out signs out and you throw the entire box, packaging and all in the compost. Apparently you can even through the packaging in the flower bed for fertilisation. How’s that for a freebie!
We never stop testing, there’s always a better way to do things, the Japanese have a word for it: “Kaizen” That’s why we guarantee your
We don’t charge for shipping, although if you want to try doing some good, select: justifiably expensive biodegradable packaging. At the checkout.
My only concerns are how we justify the cost of shipping overseas, when someone in the UK could just do it.
