Sign writing - Hobart

About us - Pool Signs

Pool Signs was established in 1950. Pool Signs was one of the earliest signwriting businesses in Hobart, Tasmania. Experience counts. What we have learned along the way has made for improvements in methods and in the finished product. You reap the benefit. You deal with people you can count on.

It all started here.

Today, layout and graphics are done digitally, by computer. Obviously, it wasn’t always like that. Here’s how they did it back then – artwork over black and white photographs, or mock-ups pasted onto the picture.
