Architectural Metalwork: Manufacturers and designers of high quality fingerpost signs, bandstands, bespoke canopies, Porte-cochère, blue plaques, noticeboards, cast signage, memorial plaques, street furniture, gazebos and much more. We manufacture for Trade and direct (Corporate or Personal) customers alike. Our restoration consultancy is regularly used by local authorities and other bodies looking for advice and assistance – particularly with bandstands, railings and park features.

We have an expanding range of our products available (including Network Rail approved bridge plates) for immediate order/purchase through our web-store (see button in menu above).

Royal Label Factory
Leander Architectural and The Royal Label Factory (RLF) are long established businesses producing high quality signage and bespoke metalwork structures. The RLF dates back to 1874 and Leander to 1986, with the two businesses merging in 1998. Some of our customers have worked with us for more than 50 years and we’ve been making cast signs for the National Trust for no less than 80 years.

Over the years, many aspects of our work have changed with the advent of computer graphics, laser cutting and etching, but old crafts such as hand-carving in clay and timber are still practised every day.

Our basic philosophy has never changed – make products of the highest quality and help customers in every possible way. If you need advice on any aspect of our products or you’d like someone to work with you to create something special, we’d be pleased to help. Our telephones are manned by real Derbyshire human beings and NOT automated answering systems!

Our work involves many different trades/skills and we go to great lengths to help people who know what they want but not how to make it happen. Feel free to contact us and discuss your project in more detail with an experienced member of staff.Victorian Bandstand manufacture and restoration
