Our Story

Our Story

DB Signs is a successful, Tauranga-based signwriting business founded by David and Kim Blacke some 35 years ago. In June 2020, the business was acquired by Jonathan and Leandri Smith, injecting fresh energy and skills to successfully take it through the next 35 years. It’s business as usual with all the familiar faces still working at DB Signs and ready to help. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail. This, together with our professional approach puts us at the forefront of the signwriting industry.

As a multi-national award-winning business, we’re demonstrating leadership in quality, style and originality.

We are a company you can depend on for excellence and first-class customer service.
