Incorporated in 1948 as the Bristol Typewriter Company an Office Equipment and Office Supplies business situated in the centre of Bristol, the business embarked upon a new opportunity in 1952 through an association with the 3M Company which enabled us to experiment in making signs with their self-adhesive materials.
After a decade of establishing our Sign Making business and developing the techniques of printing onto the specialist 3M materials the venture was given a boost when The Worboys Committee was formed by the British government in July 1963 to review signage on all British roads. This was in response to two articles published in 1961 by graphic designer Herbert Spencer, illustrating the shortcomings of non-motorway British road signs.
Only 4% of the world’s oil production is used for plastics and much less energy is used to produce it compared to other materials. Plastics are durable yet lightweight and thus save weight in cars, aircraft, packaging and pipework. When plastics have completed their use phase, whether as a car bumper or a bottle, they can also be recycled.

WCC commissioned Brissco to supply over 400 bespoke Bus Stop Signs for an enhancement project in Worcester City. The signs were delivered to a very high standard and on time and I would not hesitate to recommend Brissco to other Local Authorities.

Many thanks for the delivery of the SDW pointers this morning. I can say that the quality is far superior to the other suppliers we have used in the past. I'm very pleased with them.

I was looking for some specific fire hydrant signs with 'No Parking' lettering. Louis at Brissco proposed a design that I was able to accept first time. Samples of material were sent to me for strength testing. I gave one to the biggest Fire Fighter I could find and he couln't break it. I was able to order and receive the bespoke goods swiftly and right first time.

What excellent service. Using your expertise and experience we developed a whole new concept and design for waymarkers on the Shropshire Way. The service and product were faultless.
