Jeff Marshall,

Imagine where you’ll be

6 months from now

if you really work at this?

Nick Garrett has been absolutely central in rebuilding the sign industry numbers across UK and Europe over the past 5 years. Kind words from a few who are now the new leaders. These are not dry academic courses but powerful, highly motivated sessions that suit motivated, positive minded, driven newbies.

Success Stories

An absolutely brilliant introduction in a welcoming environment and exactly what I hoped it would be.

I was very nervous about picking up a brush and instead the time flew by and I learnt a huge amount.

Rachel Joy Lettering

It’s great that you’re teaching this properly and passing your knowledge on.

Perry Signs London

Thank you so much for all your training Nick. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Signwriting Jack

I can't believe my luck when I get to say I am a full-time signwriter myself 3 years later. I still have so much to learn, but I wouldn't be where I am without Nick's guidance and support.

Signwriting by Dawn

What I got out of Signsmiths, was knowledge, confidence, skills, support and new pals.
I'm now working full time as a sign painter and chalkboard writer.
