Our services for historic site signage

Far from offering standardized products, Polymobyl works in depth on the graphic design and integration of signage for the tourist site. From the choice of materials to that of colors, visuals, fonts and personalization techniques, nothing is left to chance!

Prior to any proposal, our team will visit your site to carry out an in-depth audit. This then allows us to take into account the environment, its assets and constraints, in order to design the most impactful historical signage media. We carry out a complete technical study before the manufacturing phase.

We work with a wide range of durable and resistant materials, from wood to steel and aluminum, and use a variety of marking solutions, including thermo-lacquering. We respect your graphic guidelines where they exist, and offer you innovative, customized design solutions. Above all, we attach great importance to the harmony of signage with heritage and the environment. This is the only way it can fully fulfill its role: showcasing the site and, through it, your entire region.

Over more than three decades of working alongside local authorities, we have successfully completed numerous historical signage projects. Some of these make us particularly proud.

A case in point is the American cemetery in Normandy, for which we designed the interpretive signage, retracing the course of the various battles linked to the D-Day landings. We also designed the signage for the Musée de la Marine at the Arsenal de Rochefort, as well as for the historic center of Vierzon. For this latest project, our teams entirely designed a ten-kilometre interpretation trail, including two information panels and 24 heritage signage supports. These combine contemporary design with clear, pleasant information reproduction, all on sturdy, durable furniture. Last but not least, Polymobyl has also created the Burgundy canal interpretation and enhancement trail in the Auxois region.
