WHIT­SUN­DAY company An­gel Signs own­ers Trudy and Jay An­gel have re­turned from Syd­ney with a pres­ti­gious wins at the sixth Aus­tralian Sign and Graph­ics As­so­ci­a­tion [ASGA] awards.

The bi­en­nial event at­tracted in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives and fi­nal­ists from all over Aus­tralia with more than 300 en­tries re­ceived across Aus­tralia from Cairns, Queens­land to Bi­bra Lake in Western Aus­tralia.

An­gel Signs walked away with a sil­ver award for best con­tour cut vinyl and bronze for their ve­hi­cle sig­nage com­bi­na­tion.

They also ac­cepted two awards on the night for other Whit­sun­day busi­nesses - Glambox Hair Stu­dio who were awarded sil­ver in the non dig­i­tal vinyl cat­e­gory and Whit­sun­day Jet­ski Tours who re­ceived a bronze for ve­hi­cle sig­nage com­bi­na­tion.

The Aus­tralian Sign and Graph­ics As­so­ci­a­tion are a rep­re­sen­ta­tive body for the sign and graph­ics in­dus­try in Aus­tralia.

They cover the whole spec­trum of sign mak­ers, sign in­stall­ers, sign writ­ers, graphic de­sign­ers, sign ed­u­ca­tors and ap­pren­tices, as well as sign in­dus­try sup­pli­ers.

Their awards recog­nise and re­ward sign com­pa­nies na­tion­ally.

Jay An­gel said the wins were un­ex­pected but re­ward­ing.

“We were greatly sur­prised to [be] win­ning two awards against such tough com­pe­ti­tion, es­pe­cially at a na­tional level. It’s good to know we are up there with the best,” he said.

An­gel Signs is a fam­ily-run sig­nage business ser­vic­ing the Whit­sun­days and Mackay.

They have pre­vi­ously won three na­tional awards, won ‘best business – non tourism’ at the Whit­sun­day Tourism awards in 2012 and were fi­nal­ists at the Whit­sun­day Tourism Awards in 2011.
