Our Somerset based designers and craftsmen work closely with clients to produce high-quality & innovative designs.

From artwork to materials, we aim to develop a detailed understanding of your vision and requirements, keeping our customers informed from start to finish to ensure the final product is met to expectations.

Whether your design is a simple logo or a full re-branding, we are happy to help!

Founder  2000

From initially completing a product design course during his time in college, Lee decided to channel his qualifications into the signage industry which led to designing for his local production company in 1998, where he first met James.


The two directors joined forces and Active Signs was created. Within the 20+ years, Lee has secured large clients including Butlins, John Deere and GTH. He continues to work closely with them to take Active Signs from strength to strength.

Founder  2000

James has been sign writing since 2000 where he initially started as a designer at another sign company. 


Over the 20+ years James has seen the industry grow. Seeing the development of new materials and new machinery being introduced.  Part of his day to day roles include design, manufacture and meeting with clients but really enjoys getting involved in vehicle wrapping as he has a fine attention to detail.  One of James’ other roles is an On Call Fire fighter at Minehead Fire Station.  A very enjoyable and rewarding job.
