Corporate Sign Industries (CSI)

Have you ever wondered what other people think about your school? What is the impression they get as they drive by? If your school signs are attractive and inviting, they’ll already have a preference toward your school over one that has hard-to-read, or worn out signage.

First impressions count! You might have amazing programs, the highest ATAR scores in the area or a fantastic student to teacher to ratio but, if your signage doesn’t reflect your school image in the best light, prospective parents and students will likely be put-off simply by what they can see.

Do you have a space in your school that looks a bit dull and boring? Let our CSI team transform it. Signage can help create a warm and welcoming place where students, teachers, and parents feel comfortable.

Corporate Sign Industries (CSI) has over 35 years’ experience creating innovative sign solutions for Australian schools and businesses. We are a third-generation, family owned company, and we pride ourselves on our integrity, commitment and service. Our focus is quality and cost-effective signage solutions that will stand the test of time.
