Their vision is to connect the signage industry at all levels. To this end, they are offering a lucky SDS member the opportunity to win a free place at one of their scheduled education programme training days between March and May 2019, in either Leicester or Barnard Castle (County Durham).

The winning delegate will learn the dos and don’ts of sign design and fabrication including: the impact of different types of materials and illumination; panel splits; laying out artwork and how font can impact on costs. As well as providing general guidance, the course will explore the many possibilities and opportunities open to sign companies.
