Photographers who have pictures of UK signs, however old, can contribute them to the History of Advertising Trust (HAT) Ghostsigns Archive in the form of a gift. This involves a three step process:

  1. Complete and submit the online 'Offer of Gift Form'. Photographers who have already done this process, including those who completed the previously paper-based form, can then move to steps 2 and 3 to continue to add photos to the archive.

  2. Complete the  'Photograph Details Form' to ensure that all the relevant background information is provided for each photo submitted.

  3. Supply the images as high resolution files (in JPEG or RAW files) by sending them via email to with 'Ghostsigns Donation' in the subject line. If you have a larger collection, then please get in touch to arrange alternative methods of delivery.
