About DSigns Devon

richard such - dsigns devonDSigns were established in September 2000 by Richard Such, he had worked in the trade for about 4 years before deciding to take the plunge as it were into self-employment.

The first couple of years were a bit of a struggle as it took time to establish DSigns as a company that had a good reputation for a perfect end result. I’ll always be thankful to my parents as they’re the ones that helped me through periods of the unknown in the early days!! Our first unit was actually ‘borrowing’ a corner of my family friends unit in Heathfield… I will always be grateful to the Trewern’s as the only rent they asked for was a bottle of Talisker whiskey for Terry as he loves a fine Scottish tipple.

We have moved premises a couple of times over the years, from Heathfield down to Bovey Tracey and then in August 2012, we moved back up to Heathfield to a purpose designed unit with a separate print room and vehicle bay. These were exciting times as it was at that point we were really able to expand and push on as we had room to do so!

I had been printing vinyl for a few years for Scott Davies who was working at a sign company in Torquay, he’d been there for about 10 years before he had the opportunity to take over the shop himself and in 2010 the era of Mac and Me was born.

 

Scott took an already thriving business onto the next stage and quickly earned a reputation for being the place to go in Torquay. DSigns continued to print for Scott and we became good friends. After a couple of years we decided to look into vehicle wrapping as it seemed this was the new rage in the trade and looked as if it was going to be great fun.

In early 2012 we went on a wrapping course together to get some background knowledge on the products and skills required to wrap vehicles.

We spent a lot of time working on our own vehicles before we started wrapping customers vehicles and in September of that year we formed Vinyl Wraps Devon as a partnership. VWD went from strength to strength pretty quickly and we earned through hard work and time a great name in the South West for wrapping.

In 2013 we were lucky enough to be taken to Holland to Avery Dennison’s headquarters near Amsterdam to do their advanced wrapping course…this was on another level and we learnt a massive amount and are so pleased to have been able to go over there and complete the course.

We were spending so much time on vehicle wraps and Scott spending so much time over in Heathfield working on the wraps that in July 2014 we decided, after much deliberation, to join forces and become partners through all three businesses.

Since that time we have really moved forwards and are looking onwards and upwards.

We now have two full time members of staff, Dave and Andy, we also have Lauren who does one day a week on the accounts side of things.

It’s so different now to when I started way back in 2000 using a corner of someone else’s unit…. We are very proud of how our base of operations look now, please feel free to come over and have a look yourself…. Samples are everywhere and the kettle is always on.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with DSigns. Their enthusiasm and knowledge about the industry and material choices has helped us achieve an outstanding look and finish with our Corten steel signage. The whole process from start to finish has been well communicated and expertly delivered. We are already thinking about other signage we can put in place so that we can work with them again! A great team who love what they do and value their craftsmanship and professionalism. We wouldn’t go anywhere else now and will be highly recommending their services. Thank you to Scott, Rich and the team for all your help and advice.

DSigns have been so much more than a ‘vehicle signing’ company for us. They have provided inspirational designs to help us promote our environmental messages across a range of specialist vehicles. The quality of work has always been excellent and their friendly customer service is always appreciated

Richard and Scott are fantastic for our business. We have seen them grow over the years and we’ve developed a fantastic working relationship. They understand our business, our core values and what we want to achieve, which is so important to us. DSigns are an asset to our business. We have recently rebranded and DSigns were at the forefront. They always deliver and exceed our expectations. I could not recommend them enough to small or large businesses.
