Glass signs can add an extra something to your business. Glass signs, with gold or silver leaf give the impression of an established trustworthy company, extolling traditional qualities, an effect that is not replicated by any other type of sign.

Be honest, when you see a good glass sign, (see our Glass Gallery) you instantly take more interest in the business that it advertises.

Using skills dating back to Victorian times, (albeit sometimes using computer generated designs) our glass signs are still manufactured in the same way, hand painting your design onto the reverse of toughened glass. Whether it be gold or silver leaf, the methods used are still the same – we can even produce a prismatic toned gold effect which gives you a 3D style to the lettering (see Kennedy’s in Glass gallery).

But don’t be put off by the price. You may think glass signs are expensive, but often they are not much more than your average ‘Perspex’ sign. Being glass with all the painting done on the reverse, you end up with a sign that will last for many years, it just requires a wipe over every now and then and the timber frame may need some future attention just as you would a wooden window frame or door. By mixing a traditional gold leaf glass sign with a modern contemporary font you can produce signs that will stand the test of time.
