Royal Warrants of Appointment coats of arms are displayed by establishments that supply goods or services to either HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales. The granting of a Royal Warrant permits the supplier to advertise the fact that they supply or work for the Royal Family, which is, of course, a recommendation in itself. The Royal crest above a citation plate stating the grantee’s trade is the traditional way that a Warrant holder advertises the status.
Ward Signs based in Bristol produces Queen Elizabeth II Royal Warrant crests in the following sizes: 7”, 15”, 22”, 30”, 36”, 48” and 60” (sizes being measured approximately from top to bottom). Due to the physical properties of the different materials available, the Royal Warrant Coat of Arms is generally made from cast aluminium, but may also be built up from laminated GRP (glass fibre). Once cast, aluminium coats of arms are painted in oven baked enamel undercoat and then hand painted by our heraldic artists.
Notable projects where we had to produce Royal Warrant Coats of Arms for Warrant holders of Her Majesty The Queen include Fortnum and Mason, John Lewis, Waitrose and Jaguar Landrover.

Royal Warrant Coats of Arms and Citation Plaques for those bearing a Royal Warrant for His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh. To date, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh has granted 38 Royal Warrants
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!
