The de Ferrers Trust

At Hardy Signs, we work very closely with a variety of establishments in the education sector. We offer signage solutions for all aspects of education, including directional and wayfinding schemes, building identification and creative internal displays.

Over the last decade, we have been providing The de Ferrers Trust with a wide range of education sector signage schemes from Wayfinding and Directional to Fascia Signage and Internal Displays. One of the recent major projects required various signage for 7 different schools (8 campuses) based in Staffordshire and Derbyshire. All schools required signs that highlighted their values: ”Work Hard, Be Kind, Choose Wisely”.

– Signage solutions provided consisted of PVC Sign Panels, ACM Sign Panels and Foamex with printed graphics.

– Aluminium Frames that were powder coated and fitted with a stretched fabric print.

– Frosted Vinyl Print applied to windows, Post and Panel Signage and Flat Cut Brushed Lettering.
