Known for his attention to detail, Tom has a genuine love for his craft and respect for tradition. He successfully completed a City & Guilds Course in Traditional Sign writing in Cork in 1995, and has since been working in this profession, producing one-off quality signs. Now with nearly 20 years in business Tom has a porfolio of repeat customers all over Ireland.

He is an award-winning shop-front designer and sign-writer with an old-fashioned, professional approach that shows in everything he does; from his elegant design process, to his patient selection of materials, to his thorough study of your requirements. He understands that every client is an individual, and an essential part of the Tom Collins philosophy is getting to know the customer.

Tom is passionate about his craft and about his designs. He takes the time to produce work that is unique and original. He believes his work should have the personal touch, knowing that it is the first impression for a customer and that is carries a tangible sense of personal touch to be expected in the business within.
