NZ Sign Solutions are based on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast, in Stanmore Bay. Originally established as Wayfinder Signs in 1988 with the main focus being tenant directory systems and wayfinding signs, since 1991 NZ Sign Solutions (NZSS) has also became the NZ stockist for the popular changeable letter signs seen in front of many schools, churches and retail stores, and a full range of pavement signs top off the collection.
At the bottom of the recession in 2009, SignPrint & Design Ltd was formed by Keith & Karen Browne and started trading as NZ Sign Solutions, specialising in design and wide format printing of signs, from vehicles and billboards to diecutting even the smallest labels.
We offer in-house design and print capabilities to the sign industry and retail customers allowing us to service our customers' every need. Everything from banners and flags, along with window graphics, privacy frosting, business cards and stationery and uniform branding. Keith Browne, Managing Director, says "I take pride in driving around locally and seeing our work being used to help businesses meet their customers. He always keeps in mind the saying; There's more to a good sign than meets the eye, a good sign meets the eye.
"Brownie" got ink under his fingers early, leaving school to work in the family typesetting and printing business. During this time he helped bring the company into the computer age. After setting up and working for himself, he then went on to manage other printing businesses. Transferring his printing and design skills to the sign industry where he rose to General Manager. Now having set up NZ Sign Solutions, operating from the Hibiscus Coast he specialises in design and wide format digital printing.
"Computers enable me to turn anything I can imagine into a physical reality, its exciting to see your work around the community".
