Alternatively, we will happily work with complete creative freedom in order to create a sign that will surprise and delight you. Producing design concepts, upon request, we will use your choice to create the final, stunning product while paying close attention to your feedback and alteration wishes.

Gold Leaf Gilding

By the use of the wonderful technique that is 'gold leaf gilding', we will make your glass look uniquely attractive. Using 23.75 carat gold leaf, we incorporate appealing gilded elements into the designs we create. Effectively distinguishing your business or property as tasteful and sophisticated, our gilding can be utilised for lettering, numerals or any pictorial image. What's more, the gilding we carry out is suitable for the signboards we can also produce.

Long-Lasting Hand Painted Wall Signs

It's not always possible to position a sign on uneven or roughly textured walls. In such a situation, there is a simple solution: turning the wall itself into the sign's canvas;  this is a highly economical way of creating a sign as no board is then necessary. Capably painting onto any kind of wall, we make use of high quality materials to ensure the artwork we create is both durable and visually arresting.
