Design

I design and draw out all signs, logos and branding specific to each individual job. I will work closely with you to create signage and branding that is unique and full of personality. My designs always begin with hand sketched drawings and can end up as numerous forms from a gilded window design to a website logo.

Alternatively, if you already have a logo or artwork, then I will complete the job based on your existing designs.

Not every job comes with fascias or shop fronts that are perfectly smooth and ready to paint. Not a problem. alongside the bespoke joinery team from Davies and Foster we build fascias, swing boards, A boards, sandwich boards, projecting signs etc where required, using high quality materials best suited to the job. I can offer my professional opinion on your current fascia and advise on the best steps to complete the job.

Need signage building from scratch? Contact me via email or phone and we can talk about the work.

 

Sign Writing

Once the designs have been signed off it's time to crack open the paint. Depending on the job, the work will either be completed on site - shop fronts, fascias, fan lights, glass work, internal signage - or will be completed in my Liverpool workshop - A boards, swing signs, projecting signs, honours boards.

The beauty of sign writing is that you can paint most things or surfaces - to use a well coined signwriting phrase, "If it stays still for long enough I can paint it."

I typically paint shop fronts, glass, A boards and vehicles, but don't be put off if you have a more unusual request. Miniature canal boats, leather jackets, life rings and lego bricks have all had the sign writing treatment.

Contact me if you want to know more.

 

Gold Leaf and Gilding

23.75ct gold leaf fanlight number.

Want something that really stands out? Then gold leaf may well be the answer! Be it on a fascia, or be it on glass, gold leaf screams style and class. Gilding can be standalone work or can be incorporated into other signage work. Popular options are the gilding of fanlight numbers in both commercial and private properties.

Gold leaf really is the holy grail of signage and it will never go out of fashion. Get in touch to find out more about gold leaf and gilding.

 

Sign Installation

Sign writing is more than just painting pre-existing fascias or shop fronts. Installation of signage is a service that I offer - from whole new fascias to swing signs. What good is a sign if it's not in situ? Once the signage has been built and painted the next stage is to get it fitted. This is all part of the service I offer.

Contact me to find out more about sign installation.

 

Window Splash

Window splashes are for life, not just for Christmas! A window splash is the perfect temporary point of sale display for your shop front.

Painted on the exterior of the shop window, this weather-proof display can provide an excellent injection of colour for a special occasion or the promotion of a particular product. These are particular popular around Christmas time.

Contact me to book a window splash for your shop front.

 

Additional Design Services

In addition to offering the traditional sign writing service, I frequently get asked about other design work for example menu’s, social media posters and digitising hand drawn designs. Together with Nick from Nicholas Walsh Designs this is work that we like to do to complement the hand drawn signage work.

Interested? Get in touch to discuss your ideas further with Nick and myself.
