Commercial gilding and sign services

Shop signs and window gilding

The introduction of gold leaf into signwriting produces a stunning high-end finish. Gilding with gold leaf is available on shop windows, produced on the inside of the glass by reverse glass gilding for beautiful, modern shop window displays. Gold leaf is also available on wooden shop front boards, with hand painted lettering. The sign I gilded for Fitzbillies in Cambridge, as pictured below, uses 23ct gold leaf on a hanging sign board.

What is signwriting?

Signwriting is a traditional technique of hand painting letters onto a shop front board or window. This skilled trade is becoming less seen on our high streets with the introduction of vinyl and printed signs. Traditional hand painted lettering on shop fronts is long lasting, beautifully designed and stands out against all those shop fronts which look the same.
