Discover plaques, heraldry and more

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;

  • Educational Signs: ensure that new students and visitors find their way easily;
  • Lettering: Did you know that Ward Signs patented the process for resin cast moulding?
  • Plaques: order bespoke plaques made to your exact specifications;
  • Internal signage: accentuate company branding with high-quality internal signs;
  • Monolith signage: long-lasting and eye-catching.

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.

What Size is a Coat of Arms?

A 3D crest or coat of arms may be as tiny as 18cm (7 inches). If they are foundry cast in bronze or aluminium, the size can be as much as 1.5 meters (5 feet) in height. Still, it is also possible to manufacture bigger crests from fibreglass aluminium is the most suitable material for a coat of arms as it enables them to be decorated with the most durable type of enamel paint. So a crest or coat of arms may be made from:
  • Bronze;
  • Fibreglass.
  • Aluminium;
Regardless of your choice of medium, it is essential that your 3D crest is painted by a skilled heraldic artist who has a thorough understanding of the complex blazon and rules for historical coats of arms. This includes knowledge of history, flags and all the associated nomenclature.

Fast, Courteous and Well-priced

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.
