Not just your average sign company.....
Graham started his sign making adventure during his work experience in year 10 of senior school. Thoroughly enjoying the fact that every job was different and all the different elements to making signs, Graham seeked a way in to the Industry. Following finishing senior school, the best way to venture into the sign industry was through college. So an apprenticeship was the best way forward through Bournemouth & Poole College and another local sign company.
After completing his college course & gaining much needed experience in everything from small vinyl lettering to built up polystyrene letters. Graham moved on to another local sign company to gain some additional experience in other areas.
After a couple more years gaining experience working directly with customers, invoicing and completing account paperwork, Graham felt ready to make the leap into his own signage company.
This was where SIGN WIZARD was established. SIGN WIZARD built up a great establishment as a local signage company Offering everything from small vinyl lettering & feature wall graphics to shop fronts & shop signs. Also offering a comprehensive vehicle graphics solution from the initial design to installation.
SIGN WIZARD was a very enjoyable local business to be a part of & Graham was very proud of how it had grown. Unfortunately during a the recession it became very difficult for smaller business to to remain operational. As a result Graham made the difficult decision to stop trading and seek employment in a completely differend industry. This was a very hard decision to make as Graham was on incredibly good terms with all his regular customers. But with his first child on the way, financial security was his primary aim.
After several years out of the signage industry working with young people in a residential setting, everything changed again. Family committments with contracted employment was becoming incredibly difficult to manage & a near fatal car accident left Graham thinking about how to have a better work life balance.
Following a long 6 month recovery from a car accident & another short spell working within the care industry, Graham decided that working from home was the best way to gain the work life balance he desired for his family.
SIGNofReflection was created as a reflection of the past year or so & Graham had officially ventured back into what he knows best, SIGNS & GRAPHICS. The industry had advanced substancially since 2008 & there was lots more to learn & purchase in order to establish SIGNofReflection. SIGNofReflection has become very well established since starting in 2018 and come a very long way as a mobile signage company.
The business started off with a zero business start up fund & has generated every penny from the very 1st small vinyl job that was initially out sourced. Due to still building the finances to purchase to required machinery required for a fully independant signage company in Bournemouth, it was a tough start for Graham. However with hard work, hundreds of hourse spent marketing & promoting SIGNofReflection, SIGNofReflection has come a very long way in a short space of time. The business has even continued to establish itself further during the COVID pandemic & gone from strength to strength. Now as a fully independent sign company manufacturing everything in house, from 3D built up lettering to full colour 60" laminated prints.
During Graham's time in the signage industry. His passion for assuring customers get the right finish & providing quick responses to enquiries & communications, has gone a long way to giving people the confidence to use SIGNofReflection & to keep returning for their signage requirements. Graham will be sure to go above & beyond in ensuring you feel happy right from the initial enquiry through to the final installation date.
We hope to hear from you soon
