Sign Writer

Signwriter - Sheila McCann-Downes.


Sheila produces high quality, genuinely hand-painted, traditional signage for business premises, shops, boats, public houses and private homes.

Sheila is also skilled in the art of gilding and uses real gold leaf to create lettering
on signs or glass.

 

We specialise in high quality, traditional, genuinely hand painted signage for business premises, shops, boats, public houses and homes.

Our signwriter was one of the last in the country to gain the City and Guilds qualification in traditional signwriting and uniquely has an MA in design. We combine traditional methods of painting by hand with the highest quality materials and the latest design technology to ensure your sign is exactly what you are looking for.

Why have a hand painted sign?

Within conservation areas and on listed buildings, traditional signage is often required for planning and aesthetic reasons. Paint is a versatile material, and can often be used on surfaces such as rough walls where vinyl would not be suitable. All signage is vulnerable to environmental conditions, but a painted sign will fade gently and mellow, as opposed to vinyl which can degrade rapidly. Painted signs can be easily refreshed to bring them back to their former glory, whereas a vinyl sign would have to be entirely replaced.

Hand crafted, unique works of art, our signs are hand painted in the proper, traditional manner, using quality brushes and painstaking workmanship. We are able to take your existing logos and artwork from the digital age and reproduce them using a blend of traditional and modern techniques.

What does it cost?
Hand painted signage may not be as expensive as you think. Low material cost and versatility means we compare favourably with vinyl signage, please email sheila@signsofgoodtaste.com or phone 01326 330200.

We are friends of the Heritage Crafts Association, corporate members of the Trevithick Society, member of the Federation of Small Businesses, IPAF qualified to drive mobile elevating work platforms and CSCS card holders for work on building sites.

We can paint directly on site or supply finished boards ready for installation. Hand painted signage is extremely versatile. We can paint on almost any surface - unlike vinyl which can only be applied on smooth, flat finishes - and size is no issue. This makes the painted option ideal for exterior rendered walls, interior plaster surfaces and anything which has a curved or rough surface.

We produce high quality, beautifully designed signs with a focus on classic typography. Our boards are produced on sustainably produced FSC exterior plywood and treated with five professional paint coats to give a hard wearing, long lasting and perfectly smooth surface. We only ever use professional ‘One shot’ signwriting paints in all our work
