Our Story

Tim Griffin, the Sign Man

In 2006, Tim Griffin started his own compliant sign business called Tim The Sign Man. With a starting stock of only seven braille, tactile signs, and servicing only local Brisbane businesses, Tim the Sign Man has grown to become the largest supplier of braille toilet signs, amenity, shower and braille exit signs in Australia.


Our experience 

Since joining the sign industry in 1984, Tim Griffin — Tim The Sign Man himself — has learned all there is to know about signs through hands-on experience in a wide range of roles. 

A four year apprenticeship in the industry gave way to time spent overseas manufacturing signage before a return to Brisbane. Back here in the River City, Tim worked as a sales representative for a sign manufacturer for 15 years. During this time, he accumulated a wealth of knowledge around the sign manufacturing industry — particularly around compliance.
