Welcome to Award Signs and Business Gifts.

The business was started in 1998 by our MD Steven Ward, initially as a sole trader working from home and covering everything from sales and production right through to invoicing and accounts.

The limited company was formed in 2006 when we moved into premises and has grown steadily since. We made a conscious decision to always invest in the most efficient software and systems, which has enabled us to remain a small company and give a very hands on personal service, yet, able to take on complex orders that are distributed globally.

Our clients trust us to deliver a hassle-free service. We make it our business to ensure complete satisfaction from enquiry to delivery.
We pride ourselves on going that extra mile to make every clients’ promotion or event a success, retaining the integrity of their brand and adding value every step of the way.
