Shells, sailing ships and fish are the staples of any coastal home collection, but they’ve been given added sparkle in the Maritime house sign range launched by Selene Signs.
Combining vintage images with a deep blue or aquamarine background, they are printed on silver aluminium to give a subtle sheen. There are also circular signs in classic blue and white, printed on white aluminium, giving you even more choice for your seaside home – or even a beach hut.
All signs from Selene are weatherproof and fade resistant, with exceptional detail and colour reproduction. The lightweight aluminium means they need no DIY skills to put them up, attaching to most flat surfaces using the supplied hook and loop pads, and will stay fixed throughout storms and all weathers.
“We were asked by a customer to produce a design for their beachside holiday home, and gave her six ideas to choose from, all now forming part of the range,” says Sheila Gimson, director of Selene Signs. “We have several different shells, sea fish, a crab and a sailing ship, presented in unique and attractive way.”
Selene’s signs come in three rectangular sizes: 28 x 21 cm; 20 x 15 cm; and 15 x 10 cm, either landscape or portrait according to design; and circular 20 cm diameter. The rectangular signs have rounded corners for safe handling. There are two finishes available: a glossy white, for vibrant colour reproduction; and brushed silver, which gives a translucent metallic effect. At end of life the signs are recyclable in household waste streams, unlike acrylic (plastic), wood or stone signs.
Pricing varies according to size, finish and design, starting at £24.00 for a 10 x 15 cm sign printed on glossy white, £43.00 for a 20 cm diameter circular sign on glossy white, to £52.00 for a 21 x 28 cm sign printed on brushed silver. All prices include personalisation with house number, name or choice of lettering, and VAT.
Selene Signs’ ranges include images under exclusive licence from UK designers, photographers and collections, as well as Selene’s in-house designs based on ceramics and their ideas. The company can also personalise customers’ photographs to make a unique house sign, as well as working with your own ideas for a completely bespoke sign.
