A guide to William Smith’s trade supply services
While many of you are aware of and regularly use our successful material supply service, you may not be so familiar with the complementary products and services we offer, such as our comprehensive range of manufactured products, supplied exclusively to the trade. These include traffic signs, tray signs, fingerpost signs, noticeboards, bespoke signs, digitally printed graphics, and pre-spaced letters and logos. A range of associated accessories is also available, most of them ex-stock.
As a trade sign manufacturer for almost 100 years, William Smith has established a great reputation for delivering quality signage with some of the quickest lead times in the country. Our experienced, knowledgeable and capable team ensures that all projects are dealt with smoothly and efficiently, no matter how large or small.
Here’s a quick overview of what we have to offer -
CE Marked Traffic Signs
We have invested in achieving BS EN12899-1: '2007' , the main standard for the manufacture of road traffic signs for the manufacture of permanent road traffic signs, so you can be sure that all finished permanent retro-reflective road traffic signs we supply are CE compliant, with the CE Mark clearly visible. Furthermore, all materials and sign faces for road traffic applications are CE Mark compliant.
If you don’t have your own fabrication shop, or need the convenience of ready-made sign blanks of any size, we will make them to order within some of the fastest turnaround times in the industry. Sign blanks are available in aluminium, composite aluminium and steel, with a choice of mill, vinyl or reflective finish.
Required for many different types of signage projects, the tray sign is one of the mainstays of the sign industry, and we can fabricate these in aluminium and composite aluminium, with mill finish, vinyl finish, or with vinyl graphics or digital print applied.
As a result of recent investment in increasing our workforce and the installation of new machinery, we now have the capacity to produce an even wider range of bespoke signs in a wide variety of materials. A quick call to our team will enable them to give you details of the options available to meet your needs.

This robust, easy to install signage system is ideal for fingerposts and adaptable to a host of city centre and rural environments.

Our HP Latex printers and large in-house stocks of standard and specialist digital media mean that we can complete your projects speedily and with no compromise on quality, whether for vehicle wrapping, textured wall, window graphics, floor graphics, pop-up and point-of-sale or banners – and much more.
