Modern techniques and materials are used for a coat of arms, such as machine engraving onto mirror stainless steel. However, traditional methods of making heraldry signs and coats of arms are still prevalent for this historical art form.
As well as heraldry, we also make many other types of signs, including;
Heraldry dates back to medieval times when knights were recognised by the crests they bore on their suits of armour. They are still used to identify and associate with a certain family, profession or denomination or profession. We have created a coat of arms for many organisations, including county councils, embassies and universities, who use crests, logos and emblems as part of their corporate branding.
Fabulous and quick service received from Wards for new signage. Would highly recommend
I commissioned Wards of Bristol to produce a bronze memorial plaque, which featured the intricate engraving of a scarce butterfly. The resulting work is beautiful and has completely surpassed my expectations.
The service received was also fast, courteous and well-priced, and I would gladly recommend Wards to anyone I know.
Ward Signs was incredibly professional, prompt, and just plain wonderful to deal with. The quality of the product far exceeded my expectations; I absolutely will order from Ward again!
