Client Testimonials

Appleton Signs guided us through the design and installation stages of our building and vehicle signage overhaul. All works were carried out to a very high standard, and the team at Appleton Signs were a pleasure to work with, keeping us well updated throughout the entire process. We have been very pleased with the finished results and would highly recommend Appleton Signs services.

Harding Vehicle Repairs Ltd

I have personally known Appleton Signs for over 35 years, and I have seen first hand this family business grow and diversify in a drastically changing and demanding industry. I have always worked with Appleton Signs over my 40 years in the printing industry, and they have enabled me to extend our services and products to our existing and new clients. A highly recommend company with very knowledgeable staff, who can advise you on almost any type of signage, printing, installation, or logistics required.

Solent Design

I can’t thank you enough for the fantastic service and quality of the recent signage provided. As you know we were unsure of the exact remit and relied heavily on your team to provide design options which led to the fantastic, finished product.  It was delivered on time in full and the whole process from initial enquiry to on site fitting was first class. I can whole heartedly recommend Appleton Signs. Thanks Luke and team for a great service!
