Environmental impacts for You and Us
Sign-Rite offers eco-products, eco signs, eco-friendly materials and eco printing where possible for our customers. Our major corporate customers have eco-ethics at their very core and can give them the right environmental friendly signage in keeping with their low carbon ethos.
Our research into evolving sign developments means we keep up with the latest energy saving technology, such as LED signage, cutting your electricity bill and contributing to saving the earth's resources.
Our roots in traditional, handmade signwriting means we can even offer this low-tech alternative craft, if needed, along with gilding and gold leaf work for heritage and conservation venues.
Offering an Eco choice
Sign-Rite supplies alternative signage substrates where appropriate. For example, compostable outdoor-use "eco-cardboard" which rots down in 4 years (in landfill) compared with 450 years for standard plastics and PVC-free rigid boards.
Sign-Rite UK Ltd incorporates natural materials into signage, including 3D wood and metal, calling on the talents of local crafts people and suppliers throughout Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. We print using eco-solvent digital print inks and refurbish and re-use signs where ever possible keeping down customers' costs and eco-impact.
Our lower Carbon footprint
Our building is made to the latest environmental standard, cooling in summer and insulated in winter, with solar PV panels. We use a biomass boiler at our registered office.
We actively re-use and recycle: 100% of our waste goes to compost or electricity generation.
Our staff all have access to bicycles for travelling to work.
We try and run a paper-less office, sending documents via email, but as this is difficult, Clancy and Cathie have planted a 3-acre wood.
