Signwriters traditionally used to paint the signboards by hand, using enamel paints and specially designed paintbrushes. But recent advancements in technology have given them the option of using softwares such as CAD (computer aided design) which can even generate three dimensional signs and illuminates signs.
These computer designed signs are then printed on the signboards using laser printing, lamination, scanning, and other such technologies. The materials used for making signboards includes aluminum, plastic and Perspex, and in some cases even glass.
Signwriters need to create scaffolding around the signboard while they are creating the board, and they need to be able to use various hand-held tools to complete the board making process. Signwriting therefore requires enough skill and strength to use the tools, as well as the creative bent of mind to design something new and interesting with each new signboard.
Signboards are notoriously in-demand, and the thing about creating a signboard is that it needs to be put up on time, every time. When marketing heads around the country decide to put up signboards to proclaim the genesis of a new brand, or a new shop comes up in the locality and it needs a board with its name, the signwriters assigned the task can hardly default on their job and delay production. Signwriting is therefore a tasking job and one needs to be ready to deliver at any given time. Hard work and a penchant for meeting deadline are qualities that are much appreciated in this line of work.
