Sometimes you need somebody else to point out the obvious to you. When we put up our road signs 10 years ago we used our logo not taking into consideration that green against green does aid camouflage. Well two weeks ago our work experience lad arrived and one of the first comments was that although living locally they had found our signs hard to find. The sceptic in me could have said that was partly due to the fact his dad was a signwriter. However when looking at our signs which were looking tired, the colours no longer vibrant and possibly presenting as being a bit shoddy, maybe it was time for a change.

So we asked for a price, expecting something back which would be beyond our budget or would mean replacing one sign at a time. The price was in fact excellent and partly due to the fact that the price was based upon using the original signs and covering them with the new signage. This appealed on the upcycling basis as it meant no wastage and used less materials.

Once the design was put in place the sign was removed and replaced on the same day (very impressive) and now we have a sign that is definitely more visible and has brought about consistency to the branding we use within the garden centre.

So if you are looking for signage I would genuinely recommend Kanturk Signs & Graphics (029 51785 kanturksignsandgraphics@gmail.com) for price, quality of work, speedy service and even better a local enterprise.

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.

  1. I would totally agree, the new signs are amazing and it’s easier to find you. I must pop into the sign guy myself for my new sign.

  2. The Secret Garden looks amazing and I would love to visit when next in Cork. You mention you have a new sign, which was pointed out as overdue, but Can You Tell Me Your Address and Where EXACTLY this beautiful garden is….. I am from Co. Louth, so do not know my way around Cork as well as the locals obviously!!!!!! Thanks. Hannah.
