With Our Apologies, Due to Demand Signs Are Currently Unavailable - Friday 15th December 2017

Information

Our Sign Making Process
For more information about how our ‘Hand Painted’ signs are made, please see the ‘About Us’ page.

As we are often unable to cope with the demand for our Hand Painted signs, we have used our many years of sign making expertise to create the vinyl ranges, meaning we can offer the same top quality product with a fast turnaround for customers. The signs are made in the same traditional way, from liquid clay poured in moulds and fired in the kiln.

We use the best quality UV resistant polymeric vinyl and industrial print machinery for the best quality print and detail. The vinyl cut lettering is in a font that matches our hand painted style – and gives a more even lettered finish than an artist can ever achieve. The best of both worlds! even hand painted style lettering with a printed vinyl decal copy of one of our many hand painted designs….and fast delivery!

For customers’ own photographs and the Shutterstock images, we crop and adapt the image to work in a motif style using our experience over many years, for best layout and sizing. However, we just suggest the design – the customer may amend this as much as they like until they are happy with the mock up layout template before giving us the go ahead to make the sign.

The vinyl is applied carefully by hand ensuring it is balanced and sized correctly according to the agreed mock up template. All of our signs, both hand painted and vinyl, are hand finished in the same way. Gloss sealed over with 2 coats of the best quality UV resistant varnish to ensure the signs are guaranteed weatherproof.
