Traditional Hand Lettering

Examples of Traditional Hand Lettering. At Whitehead Signs we still believe in the traditions of hand crafted signs. We specialise in surface gilding on Honours Boards & application of Gold Leaf to glass. In addition we also pin stripe & hand letter Hot Rods & Vintage cars.                                           Below are some examples of 'Sign Artistry"


Above is a hand lettered slab of swamp Kauri for the Matakohe Museum in Northland. This was also hand gilded with blended panels & shadowing.

 Gilding a lodge honours board. A skill that is a dying art today. At Whitehead Signs & Design we uphold all the traditions of the sign craftsman's skill. We welcome enquiries from clubs, sports clubs, RSA & schools.




All lettering on the block work of this building for Kings Mowers was hand sign written by Whitehead Signs & Design.
