Our history

Founded by award winning sign-writer Arthur Widd in 1888, Widd Signs is one of the most respected architectural and interior signage and brand design firms in the world.

Widd Signs was originally established in Bradford and quickly became a bustling family business with Arthur employing most of his family. Arthur was only a teenager when he started out in the signage business and at the time the industry was made up of freelance sign writers, no one had commercialised the art. Widd saw the opportunity and with great vision created what is today recognised as one of the founding signage businesses for the industry. One of the original sign companies you might say.

Client feedback:

The best thing about Widd Signs is how responsive they’ve been. They’ve reacted really quickly and have done a great job. Our back-lit external signage is now visible from the main road and you can’t miss it when it’s lit up!

Working with Widd Signs was a real pleasure. They really understood our thought process, what we were aiming for with our rebrand and even contributed some great ideas we'd never even thought of. Their approach to work, collaboration and time frames were without fault and we can't wait to work with them again.

I wish all suppliers were like Widd Signs. From start to finish, the team were an absolute pleasure to work with and the quality of the signage they have delivered is nothing short of exceptional.

We’re delighted to have partnered with Widd Signs to complete this luxury development. Their attention to detail and commitment to quality craftsmanship is evident in every sign, with their team making it easy to execute what on paper was a challenging brief.

Widd Signs worked with us through all stages of the process, from developing the design to installation. We are very happy with the end product.

Andy BealeWillmott Dixon, (on behalf of Kings Dock car park, Liverpool)

Widd Signs are very good at what they do and I like how we can push the boundaries with them. I’ve always believed in investing well and know that you get what you pay for. I wanted our signage to be the bees knees so knew I needed a top-notch company to deliver that. I can’t recommend Widd Signs highly enough. They are good guys who provide a fair price for a top-quality product.
