About Tierney Signs

The original "Advertising Contractors"

Tierney Signs has been based in Toowoomba since 1978, however the company was originally established in Sydney in 1924 by the late James Mark Tierney. His four sons were all trained as signwriters and learnt the trade. One of those sons, Peter, moved to Toowoomba with his young family in 1978 and started servicing the Darling Downs.

Peter has since retired, but now his two sons, Adam and Liam Tierney (both taught traditionally with brush in hand), have expanded this family business and continue to provide the quality and service synonymous with the Tierney name.

As one of Australia’s oldest signwriting businesses, we have the skills and experience to provide you comprehensive and professional trade-oriented graphic design and signage solutions. Our full workshop facilities and our dedicated tradesmen offer a personal service with an innovative and creative sign making process from design and manufacture to final installation. Our experienced team can confidently advise the best possible solutions to your business needs, the key considerations being aesthetics, durability, functionality and available budget.

We are proud members of the Australian Sign and Graphic Association (ASGA); we are licensed under the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC); and all our tradesmen are fully qualified.
