It is our mission to provide a unique, long-lasting quality product, a product with which both you and we are proud to be associated, for a reasonable price.

We have been in this district for nearly 20 years, and intend to stay around.

Being situated in the middle of everywhere gives us a unique benefit of being close to everywhere! A lot of work, both architectural, corporate and private comes in via telephone, fax or email, and we are happy to deliver, freight out, or arrange to meet customers at any convenient venue. We frequently visit Toowoomba, Oakey, Dalby, Quinalow, Goombungee, Crows Nest, Yarraman, Nanago and Kingaroy, although we have delivered much further afield.


We do not enter in major industry competitions, but at a light-hearted “Letterheads” sign-enthusiasts meeting in Victoria in 2000, we won an award for the Best Panel displaying the logo for the event, an award for the ‘Fastest Pinstriper’, as well as setting a long-distance record of 136 feet for the longest continuous stripe painted with only one dip of the brush into the paint- all in good fun!
