About Designation

Designation is a dynamic, creative
one stop sign & display shop

Since 2006 we have been designing, printing, supplying, and installing high quality signage, exhibition display products and media. Such was Designation’s success we soon outgrew our previous workshops and decided to invest in a larger purpose-built workshop, which we custom refurbished to suit larger projects and accommodate more vehicles.  The new workshop has a showroom, graphics design studio, sign and printing workshop and display product workshop.  All based on Auckland’s North Shore

Our online display product shop also makes display and sign product shopping easy. We supply display solutions to individuals and corporations across New Zealand. No job is too small or too big. Over the years we have worked our design magic on iconic brands such as Daimler Chrysler, Steinlager, Mobil, NZ Strong, Toyota NZ, and Bayleys Real Estate.

We also stock and sell a vast range of display equipment such as poster frames and brochure displays. These will get your business and products noticed and keep your printed media organised and displayed professionally. All our stock display products are available to order online and can be freighted anywhere in the country.


Start with Great Design’ is our mantra!

Working with Paul and his team has been a pleasure. From initial conversations about our signage needs to executing the signage in our store, both customer-facing and back of house, it has been a seamless process and we are very pleased with the results. We would not hesitate to recommend these guys. Many thanks for your work, Designation!

Recently LJ Hooker and Harveys NZ contacted Designation Ltd regarding frosting for our office windows.  Communication from them was at all times excellent.  We were extremely impressed with the frosting idea they suggested, and the cost was also impressive. The speed at which they produced and installed their product was outstanding – three days from acceptance of quotation to staff on site carrying out installation.  The quality of Designation Ltd’s work is first class and they are an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Recently, we organised for Designation to design a visual and to quote us on a display product that would be our branded signage to fence our area at Round the Bays. We were impressed with the idea that Designation came back to us with, and the cost was also impressive. Tie that together with fast turnaround by their production team and we were very happy with the service we received.

I am extremely happy with the signwriting on my new work car. I have had a lot of comments already on how good it looks and how well it stands out, which is obviously due to your design. I was also very pleased with the service as the car was done on the exact day it was supposed to be done, at the exact time and at the exact cost. It’s nice to deal with such a professional outfit.
