Safari Signs & Graphics - About Us
Welcome to Safari Signs
Graham is our front man and is a qualified signwriter, having completed his 10,000 hour apprenticeship in signwriting in New Zealand, a number of years prior to settling in Perth, Western Australia. He also spent some time working in both the USA and Canada gaining valuable experience in different aspects of sign craftsmanship.
Our Perth based business, Gardiner Signs, operated in Osborne Park for 12years until 1997 when we decided to take it on the road as Safari Signs. During our 15 years on the road, we travelled a lot of kilometres, saw most of Australia, meet some incredible people, and left our ‘mark’ on many towns around Australia, especially in the Outback.
In 2011 we decided to come back home to Perth.
We are both fully involved in our sign business, working towards producing individuality, originality and long lasting quality in all our signs. We specialise in traditional, hand-painted signage and graphics, which can be used for shop fronts and roadside signs, but we can also produce computer generated vinyl lettering and graphics, for windows, vehicles and a-frames etc.
We have worked together on murals for children’s centres and in shops, and I play a large roll in producing our original logo designs and eye catching layouts. Graham’s other specialist areas include gold leaf lettering for honours boards, and pinstriping and scrolls for trucks and vintage vehicles.
We both enjoy dabbling in other art media, such as charcoal art and acrylic landscape painting as a hobby.
Call us, whether it is to revamp your existing signs or to create a new image. We can help you.
