Small Signmaker of the Year 2017


Sponsored by

Lavastar Signs are based in Hook, Hampshire.   What really impressed the judges was the fact that Lavastar has taken a niche market – site hoardings and building wraps – and developed a complete solution which they offer nationwide. It covers everything from planning, through to graphic design, print and installation.  They also seek to optimise the effectiveness of their designs with the result that some clients have seen enquiries increase by over 500% compared to enquiries generated by previous hoardings.
