Vintage RoAD SIGn HIRE
FOR PERIOD FILM & TV PRODUCTIONS
Our vintage signs have been used in classic films such as the remake of the Railway Children, The Woman in Black, and Car Insurance TV Ads such as Go Compare. This has inspired us to rent out four vintage signs for period dramas and for the production of films set back in the 1930's, 40's, 50's & 60's.
Rent out our vintage signs for period dramas and films, as well as for advertisement productions in historical settings. We will also consider hiring these out for vintage car shows.
We are able to hire out the vintage painted aluminium lettering for generic film prop signs so that everything is in keeping. These screw on with solid brass screws, one can see an example of this in the photo above for HK RLWY STATION.
Feel free to contact us below for more information.
Our vintage road traffic signs can be seen in historic TV series such as The Avengers filmed back in the 1960s.
We were selected to hire out some of our vintage signs for a exciting new television series called Magpie Murders, which was written by Anthony Horowitz. Our classic 1950's signs added a great deal of realism to the rural locations in Suffolk such as Kersey where much of the filming took place. This timeless, picture postcard Suffolk village has of course been used in the past as a film location for the very popular, long running TV series called Lovejoy and near by Lavenham, remembered by many as a notorious film called Witchfinder General starring Vincent Price who played the true life character of Mathew Hopkins.
Having watched many period dramas, these stunning seasoned hardwood and cast metal signs are so often missing from Old England's narrow country lanes and village greens that they once proudly occupied. Our classic black and white finger post sign really did have the impact of taking this village back to the 1950s. Straight after the location filming was completed. The fictitious sign legends were removed and replaced with the destinations to the real surrounding villages as the parish council were able to take this opportunity, to be rid of their awful modern metric sign post and have our seasoned hard-wood finger - post sign take its place. We felt this was a wonderful achievement, as this finger post sign now looks as if its always been there. Please do not tolerate the modern metric ugly sign clutter in your village as it's rightful place is in the recycling yard. This dreadful temporary signage was only ever designed to last for a maximum period of 10 years so how about exchanging this massed produce rubbish for a permanent and traditional finger-post sign that will inspire the locals and visitors to fall back in love with their rural village community.
