About DSigns Devon
DSigns 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.
We’ve tried to increase our staff at a steady rate and as we are such a small team having the right members of the team is paramount!
Its now the year 2020 and we are going to be hitting our twenty year anniversary in September! It’s crazy how the business has evolved as it has and we have always tried to do things the correct way, little jumps to try to keep things stable as we look to expand. We are currently looking for a new premises for us to be able to try to push on again.
What started with Richard, then Richard and Scott has become something that we are all very proud of and can’t wait to move onto the next step!

We've been dealing with DSigns for several years, we have always been extremely happy with the service and reliability provided. Good quality products and service at affordable prices
Rich and Scott were one of several firms we invited to advise on signage and graphics for our new letting office, and it was quickly apparent they were in a league of their own. Their knowledge was invaluable, pricing fair and final product exceptional. DSigns are now our firm of choice and I could not recommend them highly enough.
We have been working with Scott and company for over 10 years and have found them extremely reliable and friendly They are always happy to come and meet you and see the project and they give super directions when visiting their offices (if you live in Torquay!). Their work is always super and professional and we use them across our 3 gyms, I would highly recommend them.
We asked DSigns to upgrade our tired looking vans with a modern look, literally 30 minutes after sitting down with Richard and Scott the artwork was exactly what we were looking for, the vans were booked in and wrapped to a very high standard. With ease of communication we have DSigns producing all of our paperwork and stickers for our products, obviously they’ve also supplied all signage for our premises……. Highly recommended!!!!
There is no doubt that the livery for our Exmoor Ales vans is the most distinctive of any brewery. Attracted a lot of attention and instigated business enquiries. Played a part in more Exmoor beer on more bars.
We have worked with DSigns for many years now and they have delivered for us every time. Complex bespoke signage systems, installations, multi vehicle wraps, complex vinyls and decals their expertise and professionalism in this world is second to none.

We have worked with Scott and Richard at DSigns for many years now and have always received a faultless service. DSigns have a fresh approach to business with great innovative ideas. The service offered is fantastic along with their expertise. A first class company.
I have been using Richard & Scott at DSigns for many years, for static signs and vehicle signage/graphics. I have been extremely happy with their work and professionalism. I have never felt the need to look elsewhere. Repeat signage is relatively easy but one off thoughts are turned into amazing reality quickly and professionally by these guys. Well done and keep up the outstanding work.
I have used d-signs on many occasions and projects over the last few years. I can’t fault their professionalism and their ability to create the products I require from signage to wall art etc. I go to them will with a brief description of what I have in mind, they always manage to produce my requirements and much more. I would highly recommends d-signs and I would never go to another company for signage their design and Products and service are second to none.
