Hull-based independent retailers are reaping the benefits of having a nationally-acclaimed signage firm on its doorstep after it completed a number of local signage jobs to boost the local economy.

Sovereign Signs, which has recently completed nationwide projects for companies and organisations such as Car Shop and PDSA, also ensures it maintains a focus engaging with local businesses, helping clients to further elevate their reputations with high quality signage.

Lolah and Jam, a gift boutique based in Spring Bank, is one such retailer which has substantially benefitted from the services of Sovereign Signs. The boutique now stands out among its neighbours along the street, ensuring Lolah and Jam maintains a professional appearance to customers and passers-by.

Nicola Mell, owner of Lolah and Jam, said: “Sovereign Signs has helped us out since we started out in Anlaby a few years ago. After outgrowing our shop, we moved to Spring Bank and Sovereign was really helpful in getting us off the ground here too.

“They advised us on our signage ensuring we stood out to people passing by and as a result we’ve seen a huge level of passing trade coming to us, which we’re very pleased with.

“We’ve only been in Spring Bank since January and we’re delighted with the response we’ve had so far.”

Companies ranging from MKM Building Supplies, Ultralets and JC Ready4Work also use signage made by Sovereign, along with the Clough Road police headquarters and the Clough Road Humberside Fire station, as well as many more.

Sovereign Signs has also designed the HEY NHS Golden Hearts Awards for the last five years, providing high quality trophies to give the competition a highly professional look.

The last year has seen a significant growth in orders for Sovereign Signs, which is currently completing nationwide signage installations for some of the biggest brands in the UK.

Iain McKenzie, Sovereign Signs director, said: “This year has already seen a significant increase in demand for our services after completing a great number of nationwide projects all to tight timescales.

“As we continue to grow our national presence, we are still committed to using our skills to benefit the businesses around us and we’re delighted to work with retailers such as Lolah and Jam to ensure the signage matches the quality of products in its store.

“Whilst we continue to grow, Sovereign Signs will always ensure we look out for Hull businesses too, to endeavouring to improve the local economy and the Hull business sector.”
