I was looking for a Somerset artist/sign writer to transpose my logo into a hand painted sign for my antiques business. I found Carole online and sent her my logo design and colourways and she faithfully reproduced them into a sign that quite literally is some of the best sign writing I've seen. The paintwork and woodwork are exquisite, and a complex logo has been faithfully reproduced. Carole corresponded with me to find the nearest colours available to the original design and I am thrilled with the end result. I can't recommend her highly enough.

"I am so delighted with my new shop sign that Carole painted for me, it was the perfect finishing touch for my shop. Carole made the whole process really enjoyable, from matching the colour of the writing to my existing signs, to the layout of my logo, I totally trusted her judgement and was not disappointed, she went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right. Carole is a very talented crafts-person and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a high quality sign painted"

"Having recently moved to Somerset, I searched the internet for a sign writer in the local area to update a role of honour board that had been presented to me. I am so pleased that my search resulted in finding Carole's website. Carole (very well assisted by Paul) have been most helpful whilst providing a high-quality product that involved far more than originally thought. The quality of craftmanship is second to none and I thoroughly recommend their work; so much so that I will be using them again for another project in the new year".
"I commissioned Carole to refurbish and restore my neighbour's house sign. The sign was presented to Carole in a very distressed condition. With great skill and precision Carole and Paul transformed the sign. It now looks stunning and my neighbour's were delighted. Professional and extremely pleasant to work with, I would highly recommend Carole's sign writing service".
"Restoring a 160 year old painted wall scripture required specialist skills, and we regard ourselves as being extremely fortunate to have discovered Carole.
Extremely professional, punctual and ably assisted by Paul, she produced a finished project at All Saints Church that exceeded our wildest expectations. We are already getting visitors to the Church who are coming just to admire and appreciate the completed restoration work.
Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Carole’s services where there is ever a need for supremely skilled restorative artwork".

“I have used Carole’s skills in my Wheelwright and Coachbuilding firm for many years.
Without doubt she produces the highest quality signwriting. She has written numerous projects for me and they are always the crowning glory of a restoration. She is also able to adapt to modern looks and corporate signage, proven with her signwriting when we re introduced market barrows to Covent Garden. Always a pleasure to deal with and she is a real gem of a traditional craftsperson that are increasingly hard to find today. I would wholeheartedly recommend Carole for any signwriting project”.

When the product was finished and efficiently delivered, the quality was absolutely outstanding.This is craftsmanship and quality service at its very best”.
“Our search to find a traditional sign-writer took some time but having found Carole the entire process was easy and pleasant and we are thrilled with end result. An absolute delight to work with”.

“Carole has made a superb job of the new lettering on our Churches ‘Priest Board’ The new lettering matches the existing exactly. Carole was most helpful in taking on the project. I would recommend her sign writing service most whole heartedly”.
“Having recently begun the restoration & conversion of a 1970’s Bedford TK to a Motor-home to attend shows to promote my business, I was keen to have some traditional sign writing completed on the cab to finish the job. Having approached some local sign writers dealing with commercial vehicles it became apparent that I really needed a specialist to carry out the work to the high standard I wanted for the lorry. After finding Carole on the net, we had a meeting and discussed the options for the lorry. Immediately it was obvious she had a real passion for her work, as well as a vast depth of knowledge & practical experience in dealing with this kind of project. After our initial meeting I was happy to leave the project with Carole, to design & carry out the work to achieve the impact I had asked for. Throughout the time she had the doors I was regularly contacted to make sure I was happy with progress and to have any queries or ideas confirmed to make sure the signage was as I wanted. On completion of the work I was absolutely thrilled with the finished job. Completed to an exceptional standard, quicker than I had expected and, as I had hoped, really finished off the build & raised the whole standard of the lorry. I really can’t recommend Carole enough. A truly talented crafts person with a genuine passion for her work & lovely person to deal with. I’m glad I found her & will definitely be using her for any future projects”.

“Carole Kent was asked to signwrite the new, wooden, painted Sutton Veny Church Name Board by Sutton Veny PCC.
After discussion with and advice from Carole, she made us a sample board which was invaluable both for us to show others and for the Faculty process of the Church of England.
After showing immense patience in waiting for us to bring the Board to her, Carole followed our wishes in exquisite, clear shadow-writing – we now have a most impressive Name Board.
Carole Kent was efficient and charming, patient and helpful with ideas, executed the most beautiful signwriting and we would most definitely ask her again to signwrite for us. We do most strongly recommend her work to prospective clients”
