About Nelson Signs

The pioneers of sign writing in Hawke’s Bay

In the 1950s’ Bryan James Nelson ventured into the world of Signmaking. He diversified into both screen-printing and t-shirt printing – quickly becoming the region’s foremost signmaker.

In 1989 he sold the business to his son Brent and since then the company has diversified further into the specialist field of road sign manufacturing.

Today, Brent has teamed up with son-in-law Jason and together they have implemented the latest computer systems/software, cutters and a state of the art HP latex digital printer.

An important aspect of who we are and what we do involves staying ahead of the game. We are constantly expanding our technical skills, as well as staying in line with the on-going advances in technology, products and application techniques. We ensure we stay on top – so you do too!
