About Us

Weddle & Co. Ltd was started in 2001 by John and Marie Weddle. John has been in the sign industry since 1985. Over this period John has accumulated a wealth of experience with every aspect of sign writing, including traditional hand writing or painting with gold or silver leaf. Oil works are also under taken. John has also completed projects using technical procedures such as glass gilding, gold leaf for clock faces and decoration of weather vanes.

Modern signage can often be completed with laser cut vinyl or laminated digital colour print.

We can work from a clients own artwork and require these in Adobe Illustrator (.ai files), 'EPS' or 'PDF' format. Many other formats of image are available and we will work to accommodate these.

Weddle & Co. Ltd can also provide a design service for new businesses.

John has had numerous appearances in the published press and magazines and is pictured below at the Tree Planting Ceremony for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. More pictures of the circular commemorative stone plaque can be seen here.

Tree Planting Ceremony


"Kent has arguably the finest collection of original honours boards in the South East, dating back to the inauguration of the course in 1924. The boards take up almost the entire wall space in the clubhouse and are a constant reminder to Members and Visitors alike of the Clubs standing and heritage. We are extremely happy to have had John Weddle as our designated sign writer since 1991. He is the consummate professional, complete with reliability, punctuality and some very useful creative ideas to keep things fresh."

"John's work has always exceeded our expectations, from the work he has carried out for me whilst I was at the Elite Hotel group and now my present company BGHE Ltd. I was especially pleased with the signage that he completed at my own period property in Lindfield, West Sussex. This was a hand painted crest with dates on the masonry on the front of the building. It was the talk of the village, for all of the good reasons. His customer service and pricing always meets the mark."
Mr R. Atkinson, Birch Grove House (Private Residence)

"John has worked for me since 1999 on the whole of my shop. This is to supply the main exterior signs panels and all of the internal glass gilded window panels to the front & side. He is polite, meticulous and very thorough indeed. We can always rely on him as we need to have fully trustworthy contacts working with us in our line of business. John has always been this kind of gentleman."
Mr Harry Collins, G.Collins & Sons, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

"All of John's work is brilliant, from the gold leaf sign writing on our honours boards to the modern vinyl lettering on our minibuses.
John always prepares and sends samples for any new project needing to be done. No job is ever too small or large for him. Everyone working with him is also polite, friendly and genuinely interested in the customers requirements."

Mr Ray Wickens, Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend, Kent
