Our company began life in 1983 when Murray Powell set up business as a Signwriter. Operating from a small workshop in Woodend a network of clients was slowly but surely built along with a reputation for quality work at a reasonable cost.

Within a few years the computer revolution took hold of the signmaking industry and seeing the potential of computerised equipment a vinyl cutting plotter and a wide format digital printer was introduced. The new technology has expanded the product range from traditional signwriting to state of the art high resolution prints.
