What is a vinyl sign?
A vinyl sign is created from sheets of cut vinyl, a plastic type substance with adhesive backing. This can be made up of graphics, text or both. It is applied to various surfaces and objects, often known as sub-straights. A sub-straight can be anything from a banner to a car. Vinyl will stick to most smooth, clean surfaces.
Do you do digital images?
Good Sign are currently unable to produce digital images on printable vinyl - these have to be sent to a third party to be printed. Turnaround time on this can be a little longer, which is typically 7-days for this sort of image. Artwork may be supplied by yourself as the customer or created by Good SIgn. For certain jobs, we may recomend someone to contact who is trusted by us to do the same job as we would to the same standard.
I have a specific garment style in mind...
Good Sign has various clothing suppliers who can provide a range of clothing and accessories, which should give you enough choice to choose one which meets your needs. Have a look at our new website with our full collection on by clicking here. However, we do have suppliers who are able to create specific garments to match customers needs, these must be ordered in bulk at 150 pieces plus. For smaller runs we will suggest some close matches if you have a specific look for your garment in mind.

Are you able to wrap my vehicle?
Good Sign unfortunately do not have the facilities or the training in order to do vehicle wraps at the moment. If you are having trouble finding anyone in the North Devon, please contact us for recommendations.
How long will my vinyl sign last?
Various vinyl films last different life spans. During initial consultations, we will introduce you to the type or types of vinyl most suitable for the job based on your specifications. Our day-to-day vinyl has a manufacturer guaranteed life of 8 years in the right conditions. This does not mean it has to be removed within 8-years and may still look good after that date has passed. However, guarantees are subject to the vinyl being used in certain conditions, which will be explained to you at the time of your consultation.
Is there a care guide for my custom clothing?
Washing instructions will be provided with all custom garments ordered. As a general rule, the graphics on the garment should be covered over, with a hanky chief or tea towel, when being ironed to prevent the hot plate of the iron coming in contact.
What payment methods do you accept?
Good Sign accept Cash, Cheque (payable to Chris Wareing), Card, Bank Transfer and Paypal. Details of the final 3 are on our invoices. Terms and conditions are attached to each payment method. We request any deposit to be paid before any materials are purchased and/or work starts. We also request final balance payment to be paid within 30-days of the invoice being issued. All card transactions taken either via phone or through our third party transaction provider (Paypal), under the name of BRENDON MANOR. For further terms and conditions, please click here.
I want fitting by or on a specific date, can you help?
We will do our best to meet any specific deadlines, however we do not take responsibility for any missed deadlines. Reasons for these can include, but are not limited to, weather conditions, unavailable material supply, weight of existing work or sickness. Please note Good Sign is a trading name for an individual who remains a sole trader. Please specify if you are on a deadline for work upon our initial consultation. Please note fitting of vinyl is temperature dependent and it cannot be applied outside if its deemed to be too windy or raining.
How do I order from Good Sign?
Ordering is simple, we like to first have a chat about your signs to make sure we know what we're doing for you and you know what you're getting! We call these our consultations and can be done face-to-face or via phone. All consultations require booking and this can be done by emailing email@example.com or calling 01598 741 246.
How do I look after my vinyl sign?
Day to day care of vinyl signs is not a problem. We advise you not to use harsh chemicals on vinyl film, as this may mark or remove the adhesive. If cleaning a vehicle fitted with vinyl signs, we also advise you not to use a jet wash as the water can get under the film and lift the vinyl. If a jet wash has to be used, we suggest a low pressure setting and it not to be directed at or near any vinyl signage.
There are small air bubbles/holes in my vinyl signs...
This can occur on fitting of the vinyl and can depend on the weather the vinyl is fitted in, especially the temperature. However, it is perfectly normal for small air bubbles to occur once fitted. Over time, as the vinyl and adhesive is slightly porous, any small air bubbles will disappear (this can take a week to months depending on vinyl type). Large air bubbles are generally removed during the fitting process. Any small pin holes made by this again heal over time.
Do vehicles need to come to Good Sign HQ?
In short, no...
Good Sign offer a fully mobile fitting service. We also have space for fitting at Brendon Manor stables, which needs to be booked in advance for inside fitting. Although, it is often easier for you to bring the vehicle to us in case anything has to be altered last minute. We are also unable to vehicles in dirty or dusty areas, such as fields and gravel drives as dirt and dust gets exposed to the vinyl.
For the same reason, we ask all vehicles to be presented for sign writing to be as clean as possible. All fitting is subject to weather conditions. Further details on which can be found in our terms of service and conditions here.
Do you do mail order?
We are able to send various items out for self fitting. We are also to send clothing garments and smaller signs also by recorded mail. We use both Royal Mail and for larger items, Hermes, depending which part of the country you are situated in. Please always consider when ordering if you need your item posting to you in order to give us enough time to design and produce your order.
Do you do embroidery?
Good Sign is able to provide you with embroidery services, using new heat applied badges. There is a minimum order of 25 units per badge . It should be noted that set up costs for embroidery start at around £25.00 upwards.
Which ways do you prefer to be contacted?
For both parties (you and I) peace of mind, we prefer to be contacted via email, firstname.lastname@example.org. This creates a papertrail from the initial contact and keeps any mistakes to a minimum. Being a sole trader, the phone cannot be always be answered but please do leave a message and I will ring you back as soon as possible from picking up the message. Please note, our phone will only be on during the advertised office hours found on this website, with any changes to these (such as holidays or single day closing) found on our Facebook page.
