Hardy Signs

Hardy Signs Ltd is an award winning signage, and digital signage company, which provides quality products and services to a wide range of business sectors in the United Kingdom. From our manufacturing headquarters in Burton upon Trent we design, manufacture and ultimately install your signage to exact requirements. 

“The Burton Swans initiative offered instant appeal to Hardy Signs. As a company we are keen advocates of the region in which we operate, and so we recognised the project as a great opportunity to celebrate the creativity, the heritage, and the community spirit that is prevalent. We’re delighted to be involved and we are sure the project will have hugely positive impact, inspiring pride across the town. It’s also fitting that, in the process, the project will help those in our community who need it most; through the incredible work of the Burton & district YMCA. We cannot wait to see the Burton Swans in all their glory”.

Want to decorate your own Swan?

Burton’s Brewhouse Arts Centre is subsidising the cost of an artist visiting local schools with a smaller cygnet version of our swans for pupils to decorate.


If you are an established or emerging artist, we’d love to receive your ideas for our swan sculptures.


We are looking for businesses, community groups or individuals to sponsor one of our 25 scintillating swans.
