Expandasign NZ is working with the Health Promotion Agency to provide Smokefree signage for all applications, including schools, maraes, sports clubs, hospitals etc. Here’s a sample of some products we’ve done before. We have all branding and logo guidelines so let us know how we can help you by sending our SmokeFree Account Manager Barry Purcell, an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call him direct on 09 281 2571.

The School Principal and Board are legally required to ensure signs are in place and that no smoking occurs within the
grounds, including on weekends.
Smokefree signage is important for reminding role models, such as teachers, caregivers and visitors, that smoking is not allowed, and not what we, as a country want for our next generation, especially as we aim for a smokefree country by 2025.
Signs are required at all entrances to school/kura grounds and buildings.
We’ve put together a school specific Smokefree signage flyer with pricing.

Read this case study of how one school integrated the Smokefree branding into their school.
Kuranui College – proud to be smokefree
Kuranui College is a co-educational secondary school in Greytown in the Wairarapa with a roll of around 470. As part of a recent rebranding
exercise, they developed and redesigned their school values and logo.
After seeing the flyer that the Health Promotion Agency had sent out earlier in the year, promoting smokefree messaging on school signs and sun shelters, Principal Geoff Shepherd decided to incorporate the smokefree message into new signage for Kuranui College. He was looking for an alternative to the standard green smokefree sign, and worked with Barry, from Expandasign in Rotorua, to design and produce the signs, Feedback on the new signs has been positive. “People really notice them” Geoff said. “The quality of the signs is excellent, the costs were reasonable. We’re going to order more and will probably make the wording larger.”
The College’s school nurse and counselor are both Quit Card holders so that they can support the small number of students who are trying to cut back and stop smoking. The benefits of being smokefree is talked about regularly in the school, and they are planning to include the smokefree sign design as an email footer, in newsletters, on the website, and social media page, to reinforce the messages to the wider school community, as well.
