"Signage on historic buildings is something out of the ordinary that requires much more thought to get it right.  Added to this, is our unique Welsh heritage and language.  Derek at Jenkins Signs understands all of these extra implications and has consistently delivered excellent results.  I am particularly pleased with the numerous hanging signs he has designed and manufactured which are now adding to the distinctiveness of Cardigan town."
