What Our Clients Say...

  • Dear Kerry

    Thank you for all the excellent preparation and workmanship completed on our Building at 559 Blenheim Road Sockburn recently, It was nice to know we could call on yourself who has a wealth of knowledge in this field, and I noticed this job incorporated many of the older skills you have obtained throughout many years in this industry. With you having these skills on board it meant to me Elite Fitness were getting the best job and solutions at all times, and I must say for a very reasonable price also!

    Your clever marketing/display tips were top on the list also.The finished product on Elite Fitness’s Sockburn branch speaks for itself, I would not hesitate in highly recommending SB Signs and Kerry McRoberts in particular for any Sign writing requirements any client may be considering.

    I am happy to be contacted anytime by your clients for more detailed comment if required.
    - Ian Kirk, Partner/Commercial Manager - Elite Fitness
  • To Kerry McRoberts and the team at SB Signs,

    As is often the case when a lay person looks to embarking upon something new, they have no idea how best to go about it. They need help and assistance from those that do know, those that are professionals in there field. This was just the case when we approached SB Signs with some simple ideas toward advertising on our vehicle. We thought we had a pretty good idea as to what we wanted, but when the mock-ups were sent to us and we saw our idea, and the idea from Kerry and Georgette we were absolutely sold on their creative input!

    It became a process of patience as we waited for copyright permission from an artist in the USA, and throughout this time the contact with SB Signs was wonderful and their patience made us feel continually welcome.

    When the time came to have the work done, the final check of the plans with Georgette was great, her personal input and advice was very welcome. The professional advice given by Kerry was excellent and we felt comfortable letting him use whatever adaptations necessary to create the best effect to the finished product.

    The moment we saw our vehicle was like a true unveiling of a piece of art, and we were stoked. It looks great !! We were truly impressed with the attention to detail, and the thorough explanation of techniques applied. The feedback from customers in the days following, and the eyes following our vehicle on the streets confirmed what we knew. -“The best investment we have ever made on a promotional aspect to our 12 year old business.”

    We will recommend the team at SB Signs to everyone gladly. A huge Thank You, to you all!

  • Dear Kerry & Georgette,

    On behalf of the Aranui Community trust Board Members, Staff and community i would like to say “thank you” for the excellent Signage you provided our organisation at 35 Hampshire Street.

    We have received an overwhelming positive response to the artwork. Our community loves the wall. In my 11 years working with the trust this would have to be one of my highlights. The impact of such work has definitely lifted our community. The “It’s not Ok” family violence message combined with our Health Kete, Whales Tale and Aranui Community trust Mission and logo seems to have been the perfect selection for the wall. The colours are so rich and are a perfect match to our artwork specification. The frosting work on the outside of windows has also been a hit along with the artwork on the inside of our new Earthquake Support Coordination Centre.

    We got exactly what we ordered and I like business like that.

    It was a real pleasure dealing with Kerry and Georgette who was very professional at all times. The speed and efficiency of this two man team was outstanding. The timeliness of this project was perfect from contracting SB Signs to do the work to the competition of the work.

    If anybody would like a more in detail testimonial I am happy to talk to you direct. I will always use SB Signs for any future Signage in Aranui.

    - Rachael Fonotia, Manager - Aranui Community Trust Incorporated Society
  • Dear Kerry, I am writing to express my gratitude at the professional, friendly and helpful service you ( SB Signs) provided for the sign writing of my vans. We are not only happy with the result but wish to thank you on the time and efficiency you took to complete the job.

  • To Kerry McRoberts and his team at SB Signs,

    I would like to congratulate Kerry and his team of sign writing technicians on behalf of our company, “Town and Country Roofing Ltd”.

    SB Signs team of experts professionally managed our company’s needs for advertising clearly and concisely to our cantabrian clientele, and over the last two weeks not only has our website increased its volume of hits, but our free phone business number has also increased with inquires and public interest too.

    We have currently reserved SB Signs talents again to produce some core-fluted company signage and flyers for this year’s Canterbury Home Show.

    Not only have SB Signs made our company look and feel professional but they have made our dream come true and we will endeavour to use their unique services in the near future again and again.

    Like ourselves SB Signs have made a commitment to help Canterbury Rebuild by rebranding your business and much more.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Kerry and his team at SB Signs to anyone.

    Many thanks and all the best for your future.

  • Hey Kerry and Georgette,

    Thanks again for the amazing job yesterday, as follows a testimonial from us.

    We have relocated our business post quake, and have been extremely fortunate to have the services of Kerry and Georgette from Simply Better Signs.

    We feel the signage of our windows is outstanding and have had many comments from our client's telling us how professional and stylish our windows look. All the guess work was taken away from us as Kerry and Georgette helped us with options and designs to come with the amazing end result. Not only is their work of extremely high quality but there professional, helpful manner exceeds any other quotes we received from others.. guys thanks again we love our signage and will certainly be telling everyone!

  • Kerry and the team at SB Signs have been great.

    After being recommended by another one of their customers, I made contact and they visited my premises to discuss my requirements and measure up. Kerry took the time to run through the options we had and the best products to use for the best result at the best price. The team have done shop signage and also vehicle sign writing for me. The sign quality was brilliant and turn around time was quick. He even delivered the signs personally. The price was significantly lower than other quotes I had.

    The vehicle signage they have done for me is brilliant. With such a large area to cover and with the signage going across doors and windows, I never thought it would turn out so well. The vehicle looks brilliant and good quality material has been used so it still looks as good as the day it was done. Kerry went the extra mile putting on bonnet and window stickers which has just made the vehicle. I am very pleased with the result and professional finish and I will certainly be using them for any future work. I have even received follow up calls to check I was happy with the job.
    - Vince Rietveld, General Manager - Terraquip NZ Ltd (Ironman 4x4)
  • After the Christchurch series of earthquakes forced us to relocate our retail sales presence to an alternative position on our own site we realized our existing signage was not appropriate and not positioned correctly for the changed location. We had an idea in mind that if executed correctly would give us the wow factor we were looking for.

    We drew up the concept and asked Kerry McRoberts of SB Signs to comment on, and price, the idea. The whole process from concept discussions, pricing through to installation went very smoothly. We are very pleased with the end result and would recommend SB Signs.
